European International School Ho Chi Minh City (EIS) offers a rich and diverse programme of After School Activities (ASAs) for all students from Early Years to Grade 12, most of which are included within the tuition fee. Students are given space and time to develop their artistic talents, social competencies, physical endurance and skills, as well as having fun in a supervised and supportive environment.

EIX Factor 2021

The focus this week (19th - 24th April 2021) in school was on the Performing Arts. Students prepared for and participated in the EIX Factor. This was a celebration of the hard work of students to reach a performance level standard in singing, dance, and instrumental music.

The development of their "talents" has been deliberate and purposeful to excel. This is an important EIS Learning Principle where students are encouraged to engage in meaningful and intentional practice so they should be given time, space and frequent constructive opportunities to practice what they learn to deepen their understanding and knowledge of what is taught.

In the context of the IB Learner Profile they have also demonstrated that they are risk-takers. Well done to the 27 acts who were finally chosen and who were recognized during the assemblies in the categories: Best Costume, Most Original, Most Promising, and Most Entertaining.
