Arts & Music
Because many of these people groups come from a different culture and language than Thai, they often find integration into Thai society very challenging. Many of these people are "stateless" meaning they have no citizenship in any country. The marginalized hilltribe people groups of Thailand struggle to integrate into the Thai society as their communities are located in remote and rugged locations, removed from close-proximity to public schools in the cities. Receiving even a basic education will help the Seed of Hope students to have a greater understanding of their world and give them a chance to become integrated citizens. Seed of Hope students are encouraged to take pride in their original culture and language and to continue learning from their village elders. Many cultures and communities are being lost in the wake of "urban migration" as marginalized people are moving to the cities in search of work.
The Power of Caring:
The power of a welcoming and caring community in action brings transformation to the lives of the people it serves. The spirit of Seeds of Hope initiatives has helped many to overcome homelessness and livelihood challenges to experience joy, peace and beauty. These stunning portraits of our members by Edward Gajdel truly honour this transformation. We provide places of hope and belonging for those at a crossroads in their lives. Places where people find their gifts and abilities through communities of compassion and caring.
Our Artist-in-Residence programme allows our students to observe and interact with various contemporary professional artists on campus. Students also have the chance to learn about the dynamic art scene locally and worldwide, working directly with professionals on various projects, and attending master classes. Music is likewise a hallmark of the YCIS education, and all children across our schools begin learning the violin at the age of four, which lays a solid foundation for their later development, both musically and cognitively. Students also have the unique opportunity to take individual instrumental or vocal lessons during school hours, and are encouraged to join choirs, orchestras, and participate in annual musical productions, which further develop their talent and teamwork skills. In our Scientist-in-Residence programme, learners will participate in hands-on activities and experimentation, led by professional scientists. Students will inquire, observe, evaluate and discover through scientific methods, which are applied to real world issues both locally and globally. We aim to excite and empower both girls and boys to pursue the sciences, and explore the world around them with integrity and responsibility. Character formation is central to the Yew Chung education, and students develop a strong moral compass through both curricular and pastoral programmes. Seeds of Hope is the collective compassion and charity expression of all schools across our network. We partner with local and overseas non-profit organisations to bring educational opportunities to disadvantaged children in mainland China and abroad.
