Dear XLIS Community,
I would like to share the good news that XLIS has successfully completed the staff recruitment for the 2023-2024 academic year, many thanks for the dedicated and collaborative work of the Senior Leadership and Human Resources Department. A secondary drama teacher will join XLIS in August and the performing arts team will be stronger and more diversified.
Based on the Data from our Admissions Team, our school is currently full in 3 grades, and there are still many international families on the waiting list. If your family/child has planned to leave XLIS, please kindly let us know your decision before April 10th (firstname.lastname@example.org). Thank you for your understanding and support!
In March, XLIS successfully conducted activities such as principal-parent coffees, parent talks, parent workshops, and students’ academic or talent performance, which means that we are on the right path toward a truly community-driven approach. The annual XLIS Sports Day will be held on March 31st, this Friday. Please refer to the email sent by PR on March 24th for the schedule and registration. All parents are warmly welcome to join us. If you have any questions, feel free to contact the following teachers.
Primary: Mr. Romann. Loubser ( email@example.com)
Secondary: Mr.Kevin McGarry (firstname.lastname@example.org)
I would like to highlight April’s upcoming events as follows.
Principal – Parent Coffees
Registration for Principal-Parent Coffees will continue to be open to all parents every Monday morning in April. If you have any concerns about your child’s school life and want to discuss it with HOS or Deputy HOS, please feel free to book in advance via the link below.
On April 28th, P6 students will be divided into 10 groups to present their works. Parents are highly encouraged to join and witness students’ achievements that they have been preparing for since last November. Any further questions, please contact Ms. Maria (email@example.com), the PYP Coordinator.
Week Without Walls
Week Without Walls is an opportunity for students to interact with communities and practice skills outside of the typical classroom environment, as well as supporting students to develop a deeper understanding and practice of the SDGs. M1-M3 Students will have a week without walls to Lintong and Weinan, Hancheng, and Baoji in 3 groups from April 17th to 20th. Please be aware of the details from Secondary and please feel free to contact the related Homeroom teachers for more information.
2023 Overseas Summer Program
The optional overseas summer program has already had several successful Q&A sessions and the students are looking forward to it! At the request of parents, the Summer Program registration will be extended until March 31st. Please note if your child is interested in the program, additional registration can be made via the link below.
For any further questions, please feel free to contact Ms. Sunny (firstname.lastname@example.org), the Director of External Communications and Cooperation.
Easter Holiday will start from April 3rd to April 7th. Have a wonderful family time and enjoy the holiday. Looking forward to seeing our student back on campus on April 10th.
