We are completing our first week of school in this new academic year. A few students, teachers and assistants have joined us during this week, and we still expect a few more during next week. For any inquiry about the school logistics, contact Ms. Yang firstname.lastname@example.org of our Marketing and Liaison team.
We are delighted to welcome all our students and families back to school for the new academic year. I hope you all enjoyed an excellent and restful summer, and that you are ready and eager to start the new academic year with enthusiasm.
Our fifth year has continued to see the school progress to become an excellent international school: last summer we received authorization for the IB Middle Years Programme (MYP), this winter we became an official member of the Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS), in spring we joined the WIDA Language Consortium and became an authorized center for the Associate Board of the Royal School of Music (ABRSM), and finally we closed the school year with the graduation of our first cohort of IB Diploma students and hosting the verification visit to obtain authorization for the IB Primary Years Programme (PYP).
On Monday and Tuesday this week our IB PYP Authorisation Visit was completed. We hosted Mrs. Rima Singh and Mrs. Patricia Whatarau, as representatives from the IBO who visited classes, spoke with teachers, parents and students, viewed necessary planning and documentation to ensure our Primary section and the overall school are meeting the requirements of the IB PYP Standards and Practices.
This year our Year 4 and 5 had an exciting 2 days camping experience at Jing Yu Hu (鲸鱼湖) Whale Lake Xi’an city, in Ba Qiao district. Students had the opportunity to be risk-takers and sleep in tents. They actually did an amazing job in putting up their tents all by themselves!
