Fireside chats are informal talks organised by the Alumni Association to bring speakers of interest to alumni in order to share insights, experience, and best practices with the Yew Chung alumni community. Promoting life-long learning as part and parcel of a teaching career, this event series helps alumni forge stronger ties to fellow educators and alumni. 

Amid the ongoing pandemic, an online Fireside Chat was held on October 24, 2020 featuring Ms Gladys Au, Co-Principal of Yew Chung International School and Ms Athena Nicomedes, Ms Kaur Manpret, and Ms Briella Chan, YCCECE alumnae and current kindergarten teachers. 

In the first session, Principal Au explored answers to the question “What makes a good kindergarten teacher?” In the second session, fellow alumnae Nicomedes, Manpret, and Chan offered their experience of being practice kindergarten teachers. Following the success of the first online event, the Alumni Association looks forward to seeing you in future events and welcomes suggestions from fellow alumni. If you have a topic of interest or a burning issue on which you would like to learn about, please let us know at
