TIS Pink Ribbon Tea – October 11 at 10am  

The PTO shall be hosting a ‘Pink Ribbon Tea’ to raise money to support breast cancer patients. Our donations also go towards helping those who work to advance the understanding of breast cancer and its early detection and treatment.

We would love you to join us in raising money for this important cause. Tickets are 30 RMB if you wear pink on that day or 50 RMB if you do not want to wear pink; and they can be purchased from the Admissions Office. We shall also have a number of items for auction that have been kindly donated by local businesses.

Why not come and enjoy a drink and cake with friends, whilst at the same time joining with others in support of this worthwhile cause?

Last year at TIS we raised 15,000 RMB. Can we better this amount this year?

This Week in Pictures


Caterpillars and Chrysalises

We have collected many swallowtail butterfly caterpillars from our ECC garden.  Each classroom is watching the caterpillars grow and turn into chrysalises.  We can’t wait to see them turn into butterflies.  Check out the class photo streams or stop in for a visit to check it out!


Learning about Safety

For the past four weeks, we have been learning about safety in our weekly assemblies.  The topics so far have included:

  • Fire safety
  • What to do if you get lost
  • The Ask First principle
  • Safe Touches

Ask your child what they have been learning and see how much they remember!
