October 12, 2017

On Tuesday, October 10, 2017, the Third Graders had the privilege of having Jurassic Garage come and talk with each of our six classes about animals which fits perfectly with our Science unit. The presentation featured a number of animals: three different types of snakes (one was a python!), a tarantula, a tortoise, a bearded lizard, a tegu dragon and a very cute hedgehog! The students were all very excited to see the animals and many were brave enough to touch them. We will always remember zoologists Goatee Toni & Ashley who gave us this unique experience!

Exhibition of Collaborative Cut Paper Mosaic

Exhibition of Collaborative Cut Paper Mosaic

September 21, 2017

To facilitate student-centered learning and engage students in immersive small learning communities in the enhanced school environment. We offer students a transformative educational experience and commit to supporting our students with the highest standards in teaching while preserving a sustainable and non-profit learning community.

 

Currently, CAIS students in Grades 7-12 have been busy getting their year of learning started in art with a collaborative cut paper mosaic project for the corridors. It was important for learners to feel ownership over this space by helping it reflect the identity and creativity of CAIS. Large paper mosaics, featuring many of the boxes from the move, became their platform for this message. Each group of learners began their work by analyzing the space where their design would hang, and then working collaboratively to plan a suitable finished paper creation.

 

Each finished mosaic shows the interests, creative ideas, and delicate craftsmanship of the artists responsible for these works. A colorful lion head, akin to the CAIS mascot, in Atrium 3 emphasizes the many pieces that must come together to create the beautiful and dynamic school we are apart of. The moving box cardboard composition near room 405 evokes symbolic commentary on the move, transition, and subsequent growth the campus has gone through in the last year. Many pieces along the 3rd and 4th floor spaces, like the Geronimo Stilton mosaic, are thoughtfully designed to suit the young audiences that populate those spaces.

 

These works of art will be available for viewing until the end of September 2017, when they will be changed out for continued creations from the art classroom. In October, students will be exploring works that challenge the students in perspective and how they see the world around them.

 

Thanks to all students who participated in this project.  Please enjoy photos of students’ excellent works.

Belle Li, a Junior Astronaut, at the 2017 U.S. Space Camp Program!

August 22, 2017

Belle, who will be attending Grade 6 this coming fall, got selected to be one of the Mass Mutual Junior Astronauts this past summer. It all started with her curiosity after reading a magazine about a space camp program in the US. It took her months of preparation and perseverance for the enrollment, selection competition to final interview before she got selected among thousands of students in Hong Kong.

 

Belle shared with us her experience in the US Space Camp in Huntsville, Alabama and the Kennedy Space Center in Florida and the excitement of experiencing the tumbling and spinning in the “Multi-axis Trainer” allowing her to know what is like to be weightless and free movement in space. She also had an opportunity to meet with two astronauts Mr. Robert L. Gibson and Mr. Samuel T. Durrance during her trip to the US and got to understand the life of an astronaut.

An appreciation letter from the School Supervisor

An appreciation letter from the School Supervisor

August 1, 2017

Over the past year, I have had the privilege of meeting many of you at various events hosted by the school and what has impressed me most is that the CAIS community is a praying community. Your first response to the many challenges we face is to pray for His help and guidance. Many of you have been praying fervently for the school community in various aspects of this building project, particularly in the last few months. We experienced the blessing from God from granting the Occupation Permit to getting the school registration with the Education Bureau.

 

God has heard and answered your prayers!

 

On behalf of the School Management Board, I want to personally thank everyone for your prayers and support. Looking forward, there is much to be done and I humbly ask that you continue to partner with us as we continue to build our CAIS school community with our mission: To cultivate learners with knowledge, skills, integrity and discernment, growing in love for God and service to humanity.

 

In Sincere Appreciation,

 

Clarence Chan
School Supervisor
