── Jean DeSombre, President, CISPTA
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!"
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.
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.
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.)
You'll want to remember these three women. They're CIS's co-founders: Joyce Tai, Nelly Fung and Kin-yue Fu. We thank them for what they started, and we thank them for the example they set - because anyone who knows schools knows it takes smarts, determination and principles to bring such a vision to fruition.
