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?


Pink Ribbon – Silent Auction
We have over 100 items which have been very kindly donated by local businesses to be auctioned off in our Pink Ribbon Silent Auction. The Auction will open on Wednesday 11th, at the Pink Ribbon Tea and will remain open for bids until 1pm on 18th October at International Day. Do feel free to come into the school to place your bids. Last year at TIS we raised 15,000 RMB. Can we better this amount this year?
