Parent Satisfaction Survey

Don’t forget, if you haven’t had time already, to complete the online Parent Satisfaction Survey. The link to the survey is in an email sent out from the School on the 6th February. It doesn’t take very long and can really help the School by hearing and understanding our thoughts as parents and then using the information in a positive way to benefit us all.

School networking event and International Wills talk – Monday 27th February at 6:00pm

St James Place is once again kindly offering their presentation on ‘International Wills’ to our school parents. It will be led by Asa Candussi Wilkins who is a Director of Phoenix Wills. Asa will provide a basic overview on the need for an International Will and the implications to expatriates with children in China who do not already have one in place.

In order to accommodate those parents who work and cannot get to school during the day it will be an evening event starting with Canapes and Wine at 6:00pm, followed by the International Wills presentation provided by St James Place in the HIVE at 6:30pm and then a chance for parents to ask questions and mingle afterward. 

If you would like to join us, please reply to the wechat invitation which will be sent this week. Alternatively email Miguel on or The Community Group on:

‘Food for thought’…

Last week we told you about the Hui Xin orphanage which is visited by a group of our lovely NAIS Mums every Thursday. They usually take a bag of toys with them each week for the children to play with. At the moment, they have no toys to take.

We really do need your help. The ‘toy bag’ is literally empty, so any suitable toys in good condition that your children have finished with and you can donate would be very much appreciated. Please drop them into Reception at school marked Hui Xin donation.


Examples of ‘safe’ toys that can be used are:

  • Building blocks eg duplo (no lego please)
  • Rolling toys e.g. cars
  • Jigsaw puzzles (large chunky pieces)
  • Rubber/plastic toys – dinosaurs, animals, dolls, Tea sets/cooking sets

Please note, the following are unfortunately not suitable: 

  • NO small pieces
  • NO sharp/dangerous objects
  • NO heavy objects
  • NO soft toys

If you would like to join the group of Mums who go each week, they are always looking for volunteers. Please contact They go every Thursday morning for a couple of hours.
