Message from Campus Principal, Term 2, Week 7

Dear Senior School parents,
As part of our May The Care Be With You campaign, we are embarking on our Happy Bus Project starting from Monday 29 Jan to Friday 2 February. About 40 Senior School students have volunteered to be Bus Ambassadors and their duty for the week will be to take a poll of the overall bus ride experience every morning.

A”thumbs-up” experience means that students were all safely belted, with students demonstrating care and also being respectful of one another during the ride, including towards the bus driver and bus teacher. We are also encouraging our students to find out the names of their bus driver and teacher. We hope that with the results of the Happy Bus project, we will be able to roll out a long-term system to enhance the overall bus experience for all.

A few weeks ago, we announced the successful achievement of SSIS candidate status for CIS Re-Accreditation. As we move along this 18-month long process, one of the crucial milestone is the completion of the CIS Community Survey. Over the next week, we will be sending an email with the survey link to all our stakeholders – parents, students, alumni, faculty, support staff and the board and this survey will need to be completed within a stipulated period of no more than three weeks. Your input is key! This data will serve as important basis for our evaluation as we strive to seek excellence as a school.

Last but not least, we look to welcome our youngest members to Senior School this coming Tuesday (24 January 2018). Our current Grade 6 students from Xuhui and Minhang will meet again in the Minhang campus for a time to experience a semblance of life in the upper grades. We cannot wait to have them and we know that they will have a wonderful time participating in all the activities that we have lined up for them.

Student of the Week:

Returning Student Welcomed Home
Once a member of the SSIS family, always a member of the SSIS family. At the beginning of this year Sihyung Kim, in Grade 11, returned to the SSIS family after being away for a period of time. We are very pleased to have her back. Sihyung Kim is a model student in the Grade 11 IB DP Mathematical Studies Course. She shows initiative in learning new content and skills, commitment towards learning, and also takes an active interest in the content and contexts of what we are learning. It is a pleasure to have someone of such outstanding character in this class.
