  •  Epic Arts – Visiting YIS!

At the end of May, YIS is hosting a group of visiting performers from a Cambodian-based organization called EPIC ARTS. EPIC Arts provides support and arts-based education to people in Cambodia with physical disabilities. They will be at YIS to share their message that ‘every person counts’ and will be running workshops for all MS and HS classes during their visit.
Watch this video to meet the performers and learn the sign language symbol for Yokohama International School! (Ms. Urquhart)

  • Mental & Emotional Health Club – Crane Folding

Hello YIS students!

Last Thursday we began our trip to 1000 cranes with an origami session in the library. We managed to get to 450 cranes! As we continue to work our way to 1000, feel free to fold a crane or two in the library at breaks or even take some paper home and fold on the train.

A big thanks to everyone who came to support us in this endeavour and we look forward to continuing to work our way to completion. (MEHC)
