  • Announcement from HS Student Council (HS & Gr. 8)

Welcome to your new home YIS!
Last year, we promised that on April 2018, we will have something huge announcing. The YIS App was developed by the PR team and app developer manager, Junryu Fu, from YIS HS Stuco, to create a new platform for student communication, by unifying all platforms in school into one place. Additionally, to make student life convenient, we have included different aspects of student life into this single web app. We will conduct a trial base within High School to try and see how this works out!
The YIS App is currently a developed web app, ready for all mobile usage by simply adding the app onto your home screen. Ask your stuco member for more information!
Please use the following link: https://yisdragons.weebly.com/
watch the video below to get a feel of the new YIS APP. Please help us fill in the “survey” section from the upper right hand menu button, so that we can develop this app to suit you best!
Our HOW TO HELP THE APP page has being updated, so that you can really understand why this app was made. We will publish a monthly report on the usage of the app to show how we are doing!

Thank you ! (HS Stuco )
