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.

Weekly Email from EIS to Parents - 04th March 2021

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Students returned eagerly to classes in school this week. There was much excitement around the campus and it was evident that students had much energy and excitement.   

Teachers did spend time in classes, re-establishing relationships, reviewing curriculum and, in some cases, conducting assessments. The IB2 Diploma students were certainly pleased to be in school and not online to sit their Grade 12 examinations.

The current restrictions and not having students in school have affected some events and activities, however where possible we have either postponed or made alternative arrangements to maintain important aspects of the programme of the school.

Parents are reminded that the school is subject to government restrictions to prevent the spread of CIVID-19. Please complete the Health and Travel Declaration Form for each family member if you haven’t done so. If you or any family member travel out of HCMC, please update the government’s Health and Travel Declaration Form or app BlueZone, recommended by the Peoples Committee of Ho Chi Minh City.
