It’s nice to see our students back on campus today!
Congratulations to XLIS P6 students, our young learners did such a great job for the PYP Exhibition. As the final part of the PYP program, our P6 students celebrated all their learning and academic development, with the involvement of parents, teachers, peers, and the rest of the XLIS community. I am so happy to see that our P6 students gained plenty of transferable skills and qualities to help them get ready for the MYP journey. Also, let’s hear it for the M1-M3 students! They completed their Week Without Walls and reflected and shared what they gained! It’s always a source of pride for the XLIS community to see our students grow!
At the same time, I was delighted to see the sports events run smoothly and the students’ tenacity and friendly teamwork atmosphere was an inspiration to every member of the XLIS community. Cheers to our students and looking forward to the final of the Chang’an Cup basketball tournament! In Addition, I would like to share the honorable news that XLIS has been voted to host the 2024 ACAMIS Jr. Swimming competition at the 2023 ACAMIS Leadership Conference!
Highlights will continue to happen in May as follows.
