- Goodbye Epic Arts!
After a great week of workshops with students, teachers and parents, Epic Arts performed beautifully at the Grade 12 Graduation on Saturday. This final performance was a perfect ending to their time at YIS. After some relaxation and fun yesterday in Tokyo, the Epic Arts team is currently on their way to Narita to fly back to Cambodia.
Thank you to all students and staff for your participation and welcoming attitude that made Epic Arts feel welcome at YIS.
We look forward to seeing the team again in the future! (Ms. Urquhart)

- HS Book of the Day
Summer is here, which means it’s just the season for Sarah Dessen. A steamy beachside romance deserves to be read by the pool with a cool glass of cucumber water. #yislearning #hsbookoftheday
