On 15 December, Year 6 – 10 students competed in the annual AIS swim gala. The emphasis this year was on participation, with the aim to get as many students swimming as possible. The day started with the Year 9 and 10 students competing in freestyle, breast stroke, back stroke and butterfly events. The carnival culminated with a mixed freestyle team relay. It was an extremely close result, with Phoenix and Sphinx tying for 1st place. After recess, it was the turn of Year 6 – 8 students to get into the pool. The younger students swam all the same
First semester is done and dusted for the AIS Titans Swimming Squad with a couple of local SISAC swimming, carnivals, as well as Hanoi and Cambodia invitational swim meets! These carnivals provided the usual mix of great races, loads of personal best times and some new records. Congratulations to all swim squad members from Year2 to Y13! Great job!
My name is Mida Abdul and I have just started as PYP coordinator at AIS from January 2017. Although I am new to this role here at AIS, I am not totally new to AIS. I worked at the school in 2013 to 2014, as a Kindergarten teacher at Thu Thiem Campus and it is such a great feeling to be back in Saigon and to work here once again, but this time as the PYP coordinator. I am originally from Indonesia, with my teaching qualification from Nottingham University, UK. I recently completed my master’s degree on ‘International Minded Leadership’
At TET Mr Terry Storer, the Deputy Executive Principal, will depart AIS to take up a senior role in a school in Auckland, New Zealand. Mr Storer has been at AIS for the last 2.5 years and made a significant contribution to the growth and development of the school. He has been responsible for many innovations and improvements such as peer mentoring and school perfects and AIS has benefited greatly from his expertise and skill. He will be missed. On your behalf, I thank Mr Storer for his efforts for AIS and wish him all the best for the future.
