Welcome to Chinese International School Manila! We hope you had a fantastic break with your families! We are very happy to see both old and new faces as we begin the school year! I am Mylene Pastor, this year’s EY/ES Director. I am also handling Music classes from Nursery to Grade 1. With me is Cristina Lagdameo as the EY/ES Deputy Director. She is also the EY Visual Arts and Digital Literacy Teacher. Rica Miranda serves as our EY/ES Managing Director as well as Managing Director for an affiliate school.
We are very excited at the thought of a promising year ahead, and we look forward to working in partnership with you as we help develop your children’s potential. This year will be filled with a multitude of fun activities aimed at helping your children become independent, responsible, critical, and eager learners. “Be better than yourself,” as William Faulkner said, is a goal that we would like to share with your children. It is a daily journey of knowing, accepting and celebrating their uniqueness — both their strengths and weaknesses, and carrying on towards gaining self-confidence and self-improvement. It is not about comparing themselves to others, thus becoming limited to what they think they cannot do, but about being motivated in giving their 100% in everything they do.
With this in mind, let us begin this school year with much enthusiasm for a lot of fun learning!
Dear CISM Parents,
As the school year draws to a close, our minds and hearts are filled to the brim. It has been a great year! We have learned much and shared experiences that will long remain with us in the years to come. The strength of our community and passion to make the school a wonderful place of learning makes CISM truly special.
To families and friends who are leaving for new places and adventures, we wish you all the best.
The first day of school begins on August 1, 2018. Until then, enjoy the summer break and see you all soon!
Dear CISM Parents,
Welcome to the month of April!
As we head into the final stretch of the school year, we constantly remind ourselves that there are still two months of school left, and busy months they are indeed! The teachers are currently providing more exciting opportunities for students to enrich their school experience through school events, class trips, and classroom activities. The focus continues to be on student engagement and creating lessons and activities that provide opportunities for them to communicate and collaborate, be creative, solve problems, and think critically.
Moreover, Chinese International School Manila has launched its school wide Anti-Bullying Campaign last April 10. This campaign shines a spotlight on creating an atmosphere of kindness and respect through various activities happening during the months of April and May.
Shrek the Musical is just around the corner! Once again, I would like to take this opportunity to invite each and everyone of you to watch this year’s CISM play tomorrow, April 21, 7 PM, in RCBC Plaza.
