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. 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 Newsletter - 25th January 2019

Dear Parents and Guardians,
This week Mr. Sean is in London interviewing teachers at an international recruitment fair. This recruitment fair is a major stop on the international recruitment circuit and generally sees strong teaching candidates applying for positions at international schools.
Last week saw our primary students participate in their experiential learning focussed week without walls. Grade 3, 4 and 5 students all faced the many challenges presented to them with courage and determination on their various Week Without Walls trips. Students excelled in demonstrating many of the elements of the IB Learner profile whilst away.
We will hold the TET Assembly on Thursday, January 31st in the morning at 8.40 a.m. Students and teachers are currently practising very hard for a wide range of on-stage performances.  We are looking forward to enjoying performances by many of our talented students across all grade levels, including performances by K2B, PSE, Grade 4 Vietnamese students, Grade 4 & 5 Korean students, and some of our Middle & High School students will be showcasing a special bamboo dance.  Parents are warmly invited to join the School’s celebrations for an important time in Vietnam, the Lunar New Year.
EIS will close for the Tet holiday on Thursday 31st January. Please note there will be no ASAs on this day and school will finish at 2.55p.m. We will return from the break on Monday 11th February.
International Mother Language Day (IMLD) is observed worldwide to promote awareness of linguistic and cultural diversity and to protect mother languages.  EIS will celebrate IMLD on Thursday, 21st February in the morning. Like in previous years, we need YOU, Parents and Guardians, to run a table to proudly share your languages through fun activities, games and songs. If you'd like to volunteer at a language table please contact our parent organise Ms Irene Ohler at


All the very best,

Jo Roberts and Mark Rees
Head of Early Years, Primary - Head of Middle and High School
