Amanda Clark | Founding Principal, YueCheng Courtyard Kindergarten

CIS is pleased to announce that Amanda Clark has been appointed as Founding Principal of the YueCheng Courtyard Kindergarten.

CIS has been working in close partnership with YueCheng Education over the last few months to appoint the Founding Principal of YueCheng Courtyard Kindergarten, which opens its doors this October.

This is an immensely important appointment because the Founding Principal will have a profound impact on the quality of education offered at the Kindergarten not only in the first few years, but for years to come.

YueCheng Education commissioned CIS Leadership Search, represented by Pauline O’Brien, to find the right candidate for this all-important task. Pauline visited the school and conducted several meetings with school representatives to ensure CIS had a strong understanding of the mission and aims of the school, as well as developing a clear understanding of the recruitment process with the school. Through our thorough screening and evaluation process we were able to match the skills, experience and philosophies of the candidates against the needs of YueCheng Education, who then selected the outstanding finalists for interview. 

Following this rigorous selection process, CIS is pleased to announce that Amanda Clark has been appointed as Founding Principal of the YueCheng Courtyard Kindergarten. 
YueCheng Education commented “we are delighted with the outcome of the search as Amanda precisely fulfills our expectations of a Founding Principal.”

On her appointment, Amanda shared:

“From my side, I found the CIS component of the process to be very efficient, offering some very interesting insights into the role of CIS in supporting leadership candidates to improve and develop their CV’s, application letters and interviewing skills. Thank you, CIS.”

An Australian citizen, Amanda has extensive experience in leadership positions in high quality Asian international schools. She knows China and Beijing well, having worked for eleven years in Beijing. Amanda has devoted her career to international education and is well known for her deep knowledge of contemporary education, her ability to create high morale and effective work practices among her teacher teams and is wholly committed to children and their learning.

Amanda will be leading the YueCheng Courtyard Kindergarten from the beginning of the next school year. Please join CIS in congratulating Amanda Clark and YueCheng Education for this excellent appointment.
