On Thursday, six representatives from TIS Primary attended the annual ISCOT Science Fair at IST. The theme this year was Robotics. Jack, Lisa, William, Kaylee, Terrence and Frank paired up with a buddy from Wellington College and had an amazing day learning to build and code Robots. Congratulations on being awesome ambassadors for our school.
On Wednesday April 11, 2013 Students from TEDA International School participateed in an ISCOT Grade 3 – 12 Choral Festival at Tianjin International School in Tianjin China.
This was not a competition but a community event to celebrate the love of music. TEDA International School, Tianjin International School and The International School of Tianjin all showcased their Primary, Middle and Secondary Choirs to an audience of parents, staff and each school.
The day began with the rehersal of all of the choirs to learn a song that was later performed at the the event. Freetime, snack, more rehersals and lunch follower by the actual performance. The host school Tianjin International School provided excellent service to all the visiting schools and were very professional.
The primary choir performed two songs; “Silver Birch” and “an African number”. The Middle School performed “Joshua fought the battle of Jericho” The Secondary School sung “Ava Maria” and a compilation of modern hits. After all the choirs perfomed individually, they then combined to sing “Viva la Musica” It was a great experience.
All choirs representing TIS gave an excellence performance. Praise to all the choir members and special thanks to Choir Directors Olinga Mazlum, Victorai Leith, Serena G and Yvonne Zhou.

On March 21st this year, TIS hosted one of the most prolific authors around; Julia Cook. Julia Cook, who is a former school counselor and teacher shared experiences and stories with students, parents and staff. She is an inspiration to all and left each listener with tools they can use in their daily life.
Every Primary class was able to spend time with Julia Cook and even the ECA classes were enthralled by her books and her lessons.
Although she said she never dreamed she could evolve into an international award-winning children’s author, parenting expert and inspirational speaker, she has not only realized that dream, she has exceeded it. She has approximately two million books in print, and travels the world spreading encouragement and self-love. She motivated students to use their life as a platform for following in her footsteps and writing their own stories.
Julia Cooks books are all translated into “kid language” making them both entertaining and engaging. Julia has the innate ability to write from the voice and the eyes of a child. Her ultimate goal is to make a positive differences in the lives of not only our students, but their parents and our staff. She used her experience to teach us lifelong problem-solving skills that can be used inside and outside the classroom.
She has been compared to Dr. Seuss and has presented in over 1000 schools worldwide. Look for her books in the library, the Reading Room and in the classroom. If you were still interested in purchasing her books, please contact the Librarian or the Reading Specialist. We were honored to have her here at TIS and look to bring her back sometime soon
At the end of each term, students who have met their AR goal are treated to a celebration. Each term boasts a creative festivity to match the student’s hard work and diligence.
Keeping the students engaged and passionate about reading can be challenging, the Literary Team decided to use a camping theme. The forest area was transformed into a camp site and Camp Read A Lot was born. Students were greeted with signs, tents and a photo in front of the camp sign.
Each tent was inspired by the students and designed to reflect the books they love. Harry Potter, The Very Hungry Caterpillar, Alice in Wonderland, Elephant and Piggy, Where the Wild Things are and The Cat in the Hat, just to name a few. Each tent held an activity students could participate in. Students made puppets, diaries, read books, took photos, made cookies, watched books come alive and much, much more.
Each term the amount of students who participate in the AR celebrations increases. This is a great indication of the amount of work students are putting in to reach their AR goals. GOOD JOB EVERYONE!!
Yesterday, Hong Xiang Huang, an investigative journalist and animal activist, came to our school to speak to the middle school and high school. Huang was featured in the award winning documentary, The Ivory Game. He goes undercover to gather evidence of illegal importing and selling of ivory. China has become the world’s biggest market for ivory. The documentary, The Ivory Game, reports that if governments do not take action now or in the near future, elephants are facing extinction within the next 15 years. Huang challenged all of our students to make a difference in the world. The Roots and Shoots Club hosted this interactive and informative event.
On Tuesday March 27th, 2018 a group of secondary students went to the Tianjin for the annual Foreign Friends of Tianjin tree planting event. It was great to give back to our community by planting trees and helping Tianjin to be more environmentally sustainable. We look forward to more opportunities to practice good environmental stewardship within our community!
