Mid-Autumn Festival is one of the most important Chinese traditional festival celebrated around the world.  This activity is to raise awareness of the significance behind the celebration and to let students appreciate Chinese culture through engagement in different planned activities.

The 2016 celebration will run for 2 weeks, with a main day celebration on September 15.  There will be special activities in Chinese, Art and Math classes, in addition to special food/s to be sold in the canteen.

Early Years and Elementary students will have a coloring, drawing, and mooncake clay molding activity for the first half of the period, while the latter half, they will watch a video regarding the legends behind the celebration. During lunch time students will go to room 316 to experience face-painting.  All year levels will also be having a dice-game during their respective Chinese periods.  This is indeed another fun-filled activity for all CISM students.

Sports Day 2016 – 2017


Dear Parents,

Physical activity plays a very good role in the holistic development of young people; it stimulates their physical, social and emotional health. The advantages of participating in sports or physical activities reach beyond the impact on physical well-being and the value of the educational benefits of sport to an individual should not be underestimated.

In line with this, Chinese International School Manila will be having its first Sports Day event of the school year.  This will be on Tuesday, September 13.  Students will participate in different fun games and sports activities to promote the value of sportsmanship, camaraderie, teamwork, and leadership.

To all three houses:  Red, Yellow, and Blue, goodluck and let the games begin!
