For the parents that missed the orientation talk yesterday, we are providing you with soft copy versions of the following; itinerary for the 8-day trip and a revised copy of the fees involved (the first copy distributed at the talk had an incorrect figure for the travel insurance for the 8-days involved).
For all parents, we are giving your son/daughter a hard copy of each of the following by the end of this day: CISM’s letter to parents; permission form and medical permission form to be accomplished and signed by parents; booking form by the international organizing body, Camps International, and approximate fees involved for the entire trip, with inclusions and exclusions.
Many international schools are distinct from local schools because of the wealth of educational experiences students in the former are exposed to. Learning takes place not just inside the four walls of the classrooms, but also outside, beyond the borders of the host country. Other international schools have a term for this type of educational experience. United World College of South East Asia, in Singapore, uses the phrase “Outdoor Education” to label their students’ learning experiences that include “expeditions; residential trips; community programmes” among others.
This school year, CISM’s High School unit will embark on a community-type experience in Cambodia!!!! This out-of-the-country trip scheduled from March 16th to March 23rd will broaden the range of of cross-curricular opportunities for learning.
We are inviting all high school students’ parents to come to an orientation talk on Tuesday, January 29th, at 9 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) of the school. We are looking forward to your presence. Your children will also be there for the talk.
Grade 10 students and their parents in particular are invited to an orientation session that will take place on February 19, Tuesday, from 7:40 a.m. to 8:30 a.m. in the Multi-Purpose Hall (MPH) of CISM.
Grade 9 parents and prospective CISM high school student applicants and their parents are also welcome to attend.
A new semester brings hope that our children will be able to achieve more than what they have in the previous semester. To help them, the following article has nuggets of priceless advice:
CISM has a school uniform policy found on page 48 of the Student Handbook (inside the Resources folder on this page), so we are requesting all parents of our high school students to make sure that their children comply with the guidelines. P.E. uniforms are worn only during P.E. class. Students must change into their complete school uniform for the rest of the school day. Although Friday is a “free-dress” day, there are guidelines for modest casual attire to school.
Violations of the Uniform Policy will incur not only a first-warning reprimand but for repeated offenses, after-school detention work and off-campus suspension.
