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 - 05th November 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This is a busy time for many of our students as they take time to get involved in co-curricular and community activities. In accordance with our EIS Learning Principles students are encouraged to engage in meaningful and intentional practice and are given time, space and frequent constructive opportunities to practice what they learn so as to deepen their understanding and knowledge of what is taught. In line with the IB Profile we want student to become principled, caring risk-takers who understand the importance of balancing different aspects of their lives—intellectual, physical, creative, and emotional—to achieve well-being for themselves and others.

The school is actively involved in the Saigon International Schools Association Conference (SISAC). 194 students have been training and competing, in 15 representative Orcas teams, in friendly games across U9 football, U11 football, U13 and U15 Basketball, U19 Volleyball, U19 Table Tennis and Primary and Secondary Swim Teams. The U19 Girls’ Volleyball and U19 Table Tennis Team had an impressive season beating all competitors in District 2. The Swim Team continues to grow in prominence and, in recent competitive gala students attained 88 Personal Best swims out of a possible 91 swims. EIS is currently liaising with the Vietnam Cricket Organization on the possible creation of an EIS’ first cricket team.

Last Friday our School Choir sang at the Business Awards and Gala Dinner of the European Chamber of Commerce (Eurocham). The students enthralled guests with their performances of songs in English, French and Spanish. A recap video, filmed and edited by Ole, a Grade 10 student is available to watch here. Students, from Grade 4 to Grade 10, are now also in final rehearsals for this year’s school production “The Lion’s Tale” which will be presented to students and parents next week.   

Community Service is another current focus for students, with students engaged in various activities e.g. a Chess Competition, Bake Sales and “Dress Up Days”, to raise funds for victims of the recent storms and flooding in Central Vietnam. Further, on Sunday, November 15th students will participate in the Terry Fox Run to raise funds for cancer research in Vietnam. In these endeavours students learn to show empathy, compassion and respect and to act to make a positive difference in the lives of others and in the world around us.
