As the Middle School and Upper School celebrate their return to school, the Third Quarter topic for Physical Education will now shift its focus on playing Handball for the first half. Here, the students revisit the basic rules of the game and the skills needed to play it. Students play various lead up games to practice the basic rules and skills of handball such as passing, catching, shooting, and a little bit of dribbling. Here are some pictures of the Grade 7 and Grade 9 students participating in the drills:
For the Third Quarter of the current school year, the Grade 5 students welcome the start of the year learning the basic rules of futsal. Aside from the rules, they also practice the basic skills needed to play the sport, which are dribbling, passing, shooting, and goal keeping. They understand the importance of the basic skills in order for them to enjoy the sport. Here are some pictures taken in the class:
Half way through the quarter, they will then focus on playing Hotbox, a game involving a Frisbee or a Disc.
Hello October! The month of October welcomes the start of our second quarter. It has been fun learning more about our body parts and its function during the first quarter. We have also tackled some movement concepts. We now proceed to practicing movement skills and get our bodies moving. Here are the Nursery and Pre-K applying the locomotor skills and balancing through an obstacle course.
It has only been 2 months since school started yet so many things have already happened. From dot to dots that went for a long walk creating a line, to wax crayons and oily pastels that painted bright colors on blank sheets of paper, art class has never been this exciting for the kids.
Bursting with creativity and excitement to craft new things, a child’s imagination is truly something to behold. Check out some of the activities that we have done over the last couple of weeks.

Here’s Pre-K working on their lanterns, with their pastels and cutting skills, in preparation for the Mid-Autumn Festival.
Lastly, Kinder practicing their pastels in creating a clown fish.
Physical fitness program that is enjoyable and fun to achieve optimum wellness; this is the PE Unit’s goal for this school year. Over the years, CISM takes pride of our students being good at sports and it is evident in the previous Manila International Schools Athletic Association (MISAA) competitions. However, one thing we have noticed is that some of our students are not physically active, particularly those who are not engaged in sports. Therefore, for this year, we aim to develop our students’ physical aspect by improving their muscle strength, flexibility and endurance across all levels. A physical fitness test is being implemented for middle and upper school to assess their current physical state and to know which areas they have to work on and improve, while the early years and lower grades are presented with fun and challenging activities to help them improve their physical capabilities that are appropriate to their age. In a nutshell, our goal is to have our students stay active and be healthy while having fun with the activities during our PE class. But being fit and healthy doesn’t start at school. It always starts at home. Hence we encourage our students to do physical activities or sports even when they are not in the school and to eat a healthy and balanced diet. We hope that this year’s program will be beneficial for the students and will help them achieve their full potential in different fields. Cheers for a fresh start and a healthier school year!
Welcome to School Year 2017 – 2018 in Chinese International School Manila. We hope that the summer vacation has enabled you and your family to relax and enjoy some time together. As always, a new school offers so much promise of new learning, new friends, and more growth for your children.
This year, the Specialists Department is composed of competent and capable teachers who are very eager to meet your children and impart valuable learnings to them. We continuously refine and sharpen our curriculum in order to deliver the best possible education to the students.
The first few weeks will be spent getting to know each other and establishing rules and routines in our respective subjects as we explore ways to learn and work together. It will also be a time to grow in awareness of how one learns and how we can support one another.
A home-school partnership is ideal in achieving goals for your child. The email will serve as the main communication tool for us. Please write to us any question or concern you may have.
Alternatively, you can set an appointment at the office. We are always happy to talk to the families of our students.
