Message from the Principal, Term 1, Week 13
Dear SSIS Parents,
We are coming to the end of Term 1. Reports and comments will be enabled on Parent Portal on Thursday, 30 November at 12 noon.

In the coming terms, we will continue to set goals with our students so they can maximise their potential here at SSIS.

Santa’s Workshop (7 & 8 December)
Our beneficiary for this year’s Santa Workshop Charity Drive is Gao Jianming, or also fondly known as Ming Ming from Shining Star Charity Organisation. She is a cheerful and lively 8 year old who was abandoned at birth. She is visually impaired and the funds we raise from the sales during Santa’s Workshop will contribute to her hefty 120,000 RMB medical bill. After this surgery, she will be able to regain her sight and see the world with a brand new pair of eyes.
Your child(ren) can support Ming Ming’s cause by bringing money to buy gifts for family and friends, hot chocolate and baked goods from Santa’s Workshop. They can also take part in DIY craft-making as part of the fun activities for the two days. Prices of items sold cost between 5 – 30 RMB.
Please kindly prepare cash of small denominations (1, 5, 10, 20 RMB) and a recycled bag to hold all the gifts of love.
