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’.
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.
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.
