Dear Parents and Guardians, 

ACCREDITATION, SAFEGUARDING AND OTHER SCHOOL MATTERS
Thank you to those parents who attended the parent information meeting (in Vietnamese) to discuss school accreditation, safeguarding policy and other matters on Thursday, November 22nd. The meeting was very useful and certainly covered some of the “cultural” issues around safeguarding in our school.

EIS CHRISTMAS BAZAAR 2018
We are looking forward to The Christmas Bazaar event on Saturday 1st December, starting from 15:00. The school is currently being decorated, students are rehearsing their performance and preparing their stalls – there is a real air of excitement – come join us!

Please kindly be reminded that the only entrance gate is Gate 2 on Le Van Mien Street which you will easily recognise balloons decorated over. Parents please park your bikes at the An Phu football field on Le Van Mien Street (opposite The Loop café). You will see an EIS Christmas Bazaar banner sign in front of the parking lot.
There will be 2 auction sessions run by M&HS students: 16:00 – 16:45 and 17:15 – 18:00 for the first time ever. Please come to the stage area to support them. All items were kindly donated by sponsors and vendors including:

  • 4 return tickets from Jet Star (any destination Jet Star offers)
  • 2 nights stay with breakfast for 2 people from Intercontinental Hotel Phu Quoc
  • 2 nights stay at Sonata Resort Mui Ne with breakfast for 2 people

EIS CALENDAR 2019
Please note that our Grade 6 students will be selling the EIS Calendar 2019 at the Christmas Bazaar. This year’s calendar again includes STUDENT’S ARTWORKS. This year the publication has been printed in desk calendar size.

MEET THE SENIOR LEADERSHIP TEAM
The next informal meeting with the SLT will take place on Monday, December 3rd. Please note the date and come along from 8.00am to 9.00am in the LRC. There is no specific topic for this meeting, but parents are welcome to come along for general conversation, and also suggest possible topics for future meetings.

ACCREDITATION, SAFEGUARDING AND OTHER SCHOOL MATTERS
The next meeting on this topic will be held for Korean parents (in Korean) on next Wednesday, December 5th at 8.00am in the LRC.
The school has recently revised the Safeguarding Policy in the context of CIS accreditation and once approved by A-Star Education, this will be sent to parents in January.

SECURITY ISSUES
In recent days, our Security Team have reported several cases of ‘snatch and grab’ robberies on victims walking along Ngo Quang Huy street. The cases have been reported to the Police of Thao Dien Ward.
Additionally, the security guards have noticed individuals wandering around Ngo Quang Huy street, staring at motorbikes parked outside Gate 4 at pick-up time.
Due to these circumstances our guards will be particularly vigilant. However, we would like to seek your support to coordinate with our guards in parking arrangement and visitor card registration. If you are parking a bike please ensure it is locked, keys are not left in the ignition and no valuables are visible.
Please ensure that you always wear the parent/student ID card when you are entering and present in the school.

MESSAGE FROM THE ADMISSIONS OFFICE
Thank you to parents who have referred new students to our school.
