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

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
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.)

Founders
Founders

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.

School Song
School Song

"We come from the East, we come from the West...互相學習,相得益彰". On Monday mornings you'll hear the strains of the school song, written by CIS's first headmaster and first music teacher. While just a modest ditty, it's had staying power, reminding us of our origins and the simple idea that "we learn from each other, and that way is best".
