Goodbye August, Hello September

Dear Parents,

It has been a busy and successful August for the Early Years and Elementary School Department. We have had an excellent start and I have noticed in the last couple of weeks that students have been highly engaged in their learning.  I am really proud of the work that our faculty has been doing to support student learning.  Our hard work is certainly paying off!

As the month is about to end, I would like to take this opportunity to thank all of you for supporting this year’s Spirit Week celebration.  A big congratulations to all the winners of this year’s Best-Dressed Competition.

Please be reminded that August 28 and September 1 are both considered holidays. Therefore, there will be no classes on those days.  

Lastly, I would like to invite all parents to attend our Open House on September 8, Friday.  The event would start sharply at 1:00 PM in the afternoon at the CISM MPH.  Save the date and see you!

First Two Weeks of School

Dear CISM Parents,

It is hard to believe that we are now on our second week of the school year 2017-2018.  We had a wonderful kick off last week, which ended with our first Early Years and Elementary School assembly.  Students spent the first few days of school getting to know one another and becoming comfortable with various classroom rules and routines.  Our teachers also worked hard to establish a safe and welcoming classroom environment.  We believe that, hand-in-hand, we can all work together to make this school year a successful one.
I will continue to communicate with you on relevant information regarding your children’s education as well as upcoming school events. Apart from the Spirit Week celebration from August 22 to 25, kindly take note of the following dates:
  • August 21 (No School) – Ninoy Aquino Day
  • August 28 (No School) – National Heroes’ Day
  • September 1 (To Be Confirmed with Malacañang) – Eid’l Adha
Thank you very much!
Ms. Rica

Welcome to Early Years and Elementary School 2017-2018

Dear CISM Families:

Welcome to the 2017-2018  school year!  We hope you enjoyed a restful and relaxing summer with family and friends.  We are delighted to welcome all of you back to another year of fun-filled learning and growing here in Chinese International School Manila.

I am grateful and ecstatic to continue this journey, together with our new Early Years and Elementary School Deputy Director, Ms. Mylene Pastor and the rest of the faculty, in educating, engaging, and empowering the Early Years and Elementary School students.  All our joint efforts will help children develop their academic skills, intellectual capacity and social competence.

Let us begin this school year the same way we begin every day with our Early Years and Elementary School students, grounded in the core values of Chinese International School Manila:  Be the Change that you seek; Uphold Integrity at all times; Provide Service to make a difference; Lead a Meaningful life.


Welcome back!


Ms. Rica
