MYP/DP Youth Club Kick Off Event!
For our first event of the 2018-2019 school year, the MYP/DP Youth club tackled Mount Fushan on a night adventure hike guided by our Mount Everest expert, Mr. Brendan. Students departed at 6:30pm and braved Fushan in the dark for stunning views of Qingdao’s city lights, exploration of the old tunnels, and hiking along the first saddle of the mountain.
This was a chance for students to build community and socialize together outside of an academic setting and have a great time in the process. We’d like to thank the parents for trusting us to safely lead your children on this adventure and for all the students who stepped out of their comfort zone to take on this amazing challenge. Students disconnected themselves completely from technology for four hours – replacing texting and games with meaningful conversation, helpful words of encouragement, and lots of laughter.
Special thanks to all the teachers who stepped up to chaperone this event: Stephen, Brendan, Carin, Glau, Everett, and Jamie. We could not have done it without you!
Keep an eye out for more fun and adventure with the Youth Club in November!
