BIS Year 4 Made Dazzling Nature-Themed

Recycled Paper Gift Cards For Mother's Day




Papermaking was a great way to turn the BIS Year 4 group's art & imagination into gorgeous Mother's Day gifts. This fun activity is now one of their favourite art activities. The process included mixing scrap paper and natural fibre pulps with fresh leaves, petals, glue and glitter. The students poured the pulp onto the sieve and then spread it with a spoon to fit the frame moulds to get the desired paper card shape. They waited a few days for the stunning paper cards to dry and then gave them as a gratitude gift.

CIS International Day 2023


The excitement, enthusiasm and energy at CIS' International Day 2023 was truly incredible. With perfect weather in our favor, CIS came together as one to celebrate the diversity and international-mindedness of our caring community, all whilst contributing to a very special charitable cause.

From mind-blowing concerts, delicious food from our fantastic vendors, a stunning collection of artworks created by CIS students, to our community-run country booths and various activities like horseback riding and hockey, today was truly one for the books!

It goes without saying that this event was indeed the BIGGEST and BEST International Day ever for the CIS community! At the heart of an event like this is our unwavering commitment to raising money to sponsor education for underprivileged children in need, and today, our community joined us in full force to support the CIEO Education Foundation, a government-registered, non-profit organization that sponsors education for children. From the bottom of our hearts, thank you all for making today such an amazing day for us.

A special thanks to our international consulates, chambers of commerce, booth vendors, restaurants and partners for their ongoing support. And of course, our sincerest gratitude to our amazing sponsors who have truly ensured that today was an unforgettable experience for CIS. See you next time!


SGA Grade 5 Students' Phenomenal PYP Exhibition


As spring arrives, so does the blooming of celebrations at SGA, as the Grade 5 students mark the culmination of their PYP journey. The PYP Exhibition showcases the hard work, creativity, and critical thinking skills that SGA students have developed throughout their primary years, and provides a unique opportunity for them to share their learning and passions with the community.


Over the past 12 weeks, SGA students have been exploring their interests based on the theme of "Exploring Our Passions". They have conducted research using various sources and present their findings and conclusions, exploring ways to take action and make a positive impact. The students have chosen a diverse range of topics to explore, including baking, coding, animal protection, music, history, sports, and more. 


It is thrilled to see how SGA students have embraced the PYP's core values, and how they have taken ownership of their learning journey. We believe that this experience will prepare them well for the next phase of their education and beyond.

Dotty About Yayoi:

A Colourful Adventure to the M+ Museum in Hong Kong


Years 6 and 7 have been studiously exploring the work of the contemporary Japanese artist and sculptor Yayoi Kusama. 

Our excitement grew as Mrs Wang and Ms Alexander discovered Kusama's work was being exhibited at the M+ Museum in Hong Kong. After careful planning, we were given the green light to take our students on a field trip. On Wednesday, 26th April, the big day, we arrived. 

Overall, the trip was a huge success. It has served as a valuable learning experience and will raise the students' creativity in Art and Design. In addition, I hope the younger students now understand the importance of studying artists, designers and craftspeople and will explore new ideas and techniques for their art and design work.
