Live Learn Lead Beyond YIS
Our seniors arrived back from Tsunan, Niigata, relaxed and happy after spending 4 days on the "Live Learn Lead Beyond YIS Retreat." The students were highly engaged and asked thoughtful questions as they inquired into topics such as 'What is a good goodbye?,' 'Hacking your university experience,' 'What are my parents thinking?' and much more.
The students cooked muffins, made fire using only sticks, created art to express themselves whilst spending valuable time together as they reflected on their YIS career and prepared for the future. Highlights for the week included the 6:30 am Polar Bear Club at the onsite pond, early morning yoga and writing sessions. Anxieties and concerns were discussed in a comfortable atmosphere and the students did a great job in keeping their final days together positive and memorable.
All of the staff from both YIS and the outdoor education company, English Adventure wish the seniors the very best of luck as they continue to Live, Learn, Lead beyond Yokohama International School.
