Dear QISS Families and Friends,
We are now through the 4th week of the 2016-2017 academic year. This week, both teachers and parents were busy with Open House Nights. Thank you to all the parents who attended. It was great to see the teachers and parents connecting, and the parents learning more about the academic programs on offer at QISS. Additionally, the Learning Resource Center (LRC) commenced this week. The LRC is a great resource for students whose native language is not English. On Tuesdays and Thursdays the LRC teachers provide study skills and other academic support. On Saturdays, the students learn academic English. If you are interesting in enrolling your child in LRC, please locate the application forms and more information at the QISS website.
Director’s Family Swimming Program
The QISS swimming pool is still open for free for QISS families and guests on Saturdays between 9am and 12pm. This year the Director’s Family Swimming program has been very successful, with an average of 20-25 individuals joining. Feel free to join tomorrow and take advantage of this great facility.
September 6: Teacher In-Service / Student Half Day
As per the 2016-2017 academic calendar, next Tuesday (September 6) is a half-day for students. All school buses will leave the QISS campus at 1pm. QISS strongly believes in providing ongoing professional development to teaching staff, so that we can continue to provide your child with an education that represents global best practice. These teacher in-service days are designed purely for that purpose. In-service professional development days are a valuable opportunity for the QISS staff to innovate and collaborate, sharing the knowledge, expertise and skills that make QISS the No.1 international school in Qingdao.
