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.
Well done to the AIS Touch Rugby team for their recent participation in the SRFC Touch Rugby competition held at RMIT. The mixed team was made up of boys and girls from Year 7 through to Year 13. In very hot conditions and against more experienced opposition the team played extremely well throughout the day, growing in confidence and improving with each game. Their commitment and enthusiasm were rewarded with a strong win in their final playoff match, earning them the Sword Trophy. Congratulations!
