‘Loosing people we love is a terrible thing and to have to go through the grief that comes with it can be painful, isolating, and frustrating. It isn’t something people move through quickly and isn’t something you can do alone.
Last week, Mr. Clark was visited Nagoya International School to show his solidarity and offer support for those who were affected by the death of a student who was hit by a car and killed.
The Mental and Emotional Health Club (MECH) thought the school community should do something for Nagoya International school too.

  • Announcement from HS Student Council

Good morning,

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 of YIS Stuco, possibly 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 feel free to goto the “survey” section from the upper right hand menu button, so that we can develop this app to suit you best!

Thank you! (HS Student Council)
