11 US Universities Visit AIS

Last Thursday, AIS hosted a visit from 11 US universities led by Mr Rohit Kandari of KCUnivAssist. The institutions involved included major public research universities, liberal arts colleges and private universities from the mid-west and east coast regions of the US. All Year 11 students, along with those Year 12 and 13 students interested in studying in the US, were invited to attend the event which was held in the Auditorium. Following a seminar on Higher Education in the US and Emerging Careers, the 150+ students enthusiastically engaged with the university representatives in a ‘mini-fair’.

Students who do well, will have an opportunity to represent the School in the SISAC Cross Country event in November. U11 girls and boys soccer training has started on Wednesdays after school. Please make sure to check MyAIS, which has information about up and coming fixtures.


Mid Autumn Festival

Both our Thu Thiem and Thao Dien campuses celebrated the Mid-Autumn Moon Festival with songs, stories and dances – even a Lion dance! It is wonderful to see how our families from across the world contributed to and enjoyed this important and wonderful Vietnamese tradition. Please enjoy the video.


AIS Year 12 – Camping Trip

Our Year 12 students had a wonderful camping trip in Dalat last week. The camp was an excellent opportunity for our students to build their leadership and team work skills as well as experience a range of exciting outdoor activities.





Secondary School Assembly

A wonderful secondary school assembly yesterday. Three boys – Rohit Ambakkat, Mai Phuoc Minh Quan and Tran Quoc Anh Andrew – were awarded certificates for their outstanding performance in last year’s IGCSE exams, Dr Crouch spoke on the importance of perseverance by not giving up when things become difficult, and the School jazz band played a great song that had the whole assembly clapping enthusiastically.


Primary House Elections

Primary House elections were held in August at both the TT and TD
campuses. Eight students from each campus were chosen by their
peers to represent them. One of the first tasks students worked on
was creating a house chant/war cry. Students spent Friday afternoon
sharing their ideas and designing a chant that students can bring
along to inter- house competitions. The aim of a chant is to motivate
each other and help build up team spirit for each house group. I am
looking forward to hearing the student’s belt out their chants!
