Message from School Leadership Team
Dear Parents and Guardians,
It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to this new academic year, one in which many positive changes are happening at Yew Wah International Education School of Tongxiang.
As some good news with which to start the year, let us congratulate last year’s Grade 10 students, who took IGCSEs in First Language Chinese and Mathematics in June. Their results ranged from B to A* in both subjects. We wish them all the best with their studies and examinations this year.
This year we are starting a number of initiatives which will benefit students. Some of these concern English language teaching in the Secondary School. In order to meet students’ learning needs more effectively, the Secondary English programme will offer three levels of English classes for students from Grades 6 to 8. To give them more exposure to English and to strengthen their reading skills, Secondary students are also given access to an online reading programme. Our Secondary English subject leader will send you further details of these developments in due course.
This year we will also start the seven-day boarding programme, and a number of families have already signed up for this. We hope that this programme will offer students more academic support, and provide an environment in which they will develop independent study skills and life skills.
The last area of development which I would like to share with you concerns communication with parents. This year we aim to improve and strengthen this important aspect of our school life. We will hold regular meetings with parents in order to understand your concerns and interests. We will also strengthen the system by which we communicate important information and messages related to school events and activities. You will receive further information about these initiatives in due course.
We warmly welcome you all to our school community, and we invite you to discover more about us, and to participate whole-heartedly with our teachers and your children on their educational journey.
