CIS is not just a school my kids attend to develop skills for a challenging world - but a community that I fully entrust with their education and wellbeing.

Distinctly CIS

Every May, the China Experience Programme lets students in Years 7, 8 and 9 spend two weeks discovering new parts of China: Y7s go to Xian, Y8s to Kunming and Y9s to Yangshuo. They spend half the day in class at a local partner school, and also have chances to visit local sights and try their hand at outdoor adventure and community service. By the time they go to Hangzhou in Year 10, they're ready for a year-long experience!

Our school name reflects our multilingualism. To many we're "CIS", while to others we're known as 漢基 - "Han Ji" - the name that highlights our Chinese foundations and features in our school logo...and then there's the name you'll want to use when riding the mini-bus to school: "Hon Gei!"

Mascot
Mascot

Our beloved mascot is rather young. An outgrowth of a Year 11 student project, the Phoenix was chosen by popular vote in 2010, took visual shape in 2011, and was reborn in 2013 in 3D, based on drawings by a then-Year 1 student. The Phoenix is now our emblem of school spirit and student initiative. Follow the progress of our Phoenix sports teams and other groups at our Order of the Phoenix Facebook page.


School Fair

Vintage clothing or used books? Homemade Korean food? Student performances? Games, charity or shopping stalls? Everyone in the community will have a different a view about what makes the annual School Fair our most fun and spirited event of the year. If you missed out, join us next time! More photos and information at www.cisfair.com.

Moongate
Moongate

The Moongate is our heart and home. It's the main entrance to the school. It's where daily soccer matches run wild. It's where we celebrate Chinese New Year and where families take photos on Graduation day. When the school intranet - our home online - needed a name, you can guess what we chose to call it. (Login into Moongate if you're a current student, parent or staff member.)
