You may also appreciate a preview of the program we have in store for you that night! Here are the musical performances that our students have prepared. They have been working SO hard and will be filming on 30 November and 1 December.
Raffle tickets went home on Monday, 22 November! Every student received 5 booklets that look just like the ones below. Each booklet contains 10 tickets for a total of HK$100.00 per booklet or HK$500.00 for all five booklets.
Kindly do not lose or misplace these tickets, as they are considered cash. Tickets arrived in a white envelope with instructions printed on the envelope. We ask that you return the tickets and funds inside by Friday, 3 December at the latest. You can also order additional tickets using the envelope you receive. Be sure to complete and return yours as soon as possible to be eligible for the many amazing prizes we have on offer this year, just in time for the holiday season! Please note that all tickets must be returned, regardless of whether or not they are purchased.
On Monday, 22 November, an email went out with a link to a Google Form, asking you to let us know what you think is inside the AIS time capsule. All correct guesses will be entered into a draw, and the winners will get to choose an item to include in the new time capsule that will be opened on the school’s 50th anniversary. Please fill out this form if you would like to participate. Students, staff and members of the PTA Executive Committee are very excited to see what treasures await us!
College Prep Day 2021
Be sure to read our most recent blog post about our College Prep Day on 26 October, 2021. The virtual fair was organized by AIS, led by our outstanding Head of Counselling and Student Support, Ms. Kris Bumpus, in collaboration with MaiaLearning. This college and career planning platform is used by over 65 countries to support students with career and university planning.
And last but certainly not least, a heartfelt congratulations to Ms. Kim Williams and her Drama students Jessica Famolare, alumni Kyna Tam, Jenny Zhand, and Yusia Xiao for their winning film! It was one of only 22 films that received an award out of nearly 6,000 entries in the Bow Seat Film Festival. To learn more about their achievement, visit this link. We are so proud of our amazing students and the wonderful teachers that foster their talents! Congratulations to everyone involved in the project!!
As always, we are grateful for your support and wish you a wonderful weekend ahead.
Head of School
