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 - 24th September 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,

This week students have been particularly busy in classrooms and out of school. The enthusiasm for learning has been particularly high. Students now have “evidence” of some of their learning activities, particularly unit projects and participation in school events, such as House Assembly and Roald Dahl Day

We have resumed fieldtrips, particularly for older students, providing important opportunities for team building. Additionally, students are involved in After School Activities, including swimming and competitive friendly games with other international schools. We hope that parents have been able to view and engage in some of these online through our platforms, particularly the Parent Portal, which now has 374 participants.

It is an important Learning Principle that EIS students are encouraged to engage in meaningful and intentional practice. In this way they are given time, space, and frequent constructive opportunities to practice what they learn to deepen their understanding and knowledge of what is taught.

We will be sending a questionnaire to all parents new to the school tomorrow, Friday. We do ask that you provide feedback on our admissions process and on transition to our school. Also, tomorrow the SLT will be holding a meeting in Korean for parents and a similar meeting in Vietnamese next Wednesday, September 30th. Parents with any general questions regarding the school should also contact their Head of Section, Ms. Jo Roberts or Mr. John Veitch

Warm regards,

Sean O'MaoNaigh
Head of School
