CMIS Elementary School is filled with a variety of fun and interesting activities. Students have the opportunity to participate in after school sports for their age groups. There are various seasons for the sports. These are after school activities.
Every year in elementary we offer six weeks of "Friday Clubs" to our students which take place during the last period of the day on Fridays. The students get to choose which club they want to participate in, and so each club has a wonderful cross-section of age levels. We have offered the following clubs for students in KG to grade 6:
- Lego & Knex
- Fairy Tales & Crafts
- Techie Kids (computer class)
- Mandala Designs
- Storybook Stew
- Flag Football
- Card & Dice games
- Board Games
Teachers and parents led the groups and the students had an amazing time exploring their favorite hobbies or participating in sports and artistic pursuits. Some loved the fact that they could try something new and different, like Batik or Mandala Designs. It was a fun-filled, cross-grade level, interactive learning time that we intend to repeat year after year!
During the school year, Elementary students get to take part in many special events. The PTG ( Parent-Teacher Group) co-sponsors many events with the school throughout the year. There is the Orientation for new Students, Back-To-School Barbecue, Open House, Fall Festival, Christmas Event, Book Week, Book Swap and Pizza Sale, Teacher Appreciation Day, Thai Day/International Day (on a yearly rotation), Volunteer Appreciation Tea, and monthly Virtue Assemblies, to name a few. Each grade is responsible for the assembly that focuses on the virtue of the month. There are also special Music and Art showcases throughout the year.
Grade levels have various special days and events throughout the year that reinforce and highlight curriculum. Some of these events are: Medieval Day, Explorer's Day, Teddy Bear Day, Author Day, 100 day celebrations, and City Simulations to name but a few. From this partial list you can feel what a fun and active place Elementary School is.
Elementary School children have a busy and enjoyable mixture of academic, field trips, class activities, and sports. Elementary parents generously volunteer their time and talents to further enhance learning and fun. We really appreciate them.
Secondary School at CMIS offers many extracurricular activities that cover all areas of our community. We offer a vibrant athletics program and are a founding member of the Chiang Mai Atheletic Conference. This conference is made up of the international schools in Chiang Mai and arranges athletic events for local, national, and international levels. CMIS is also an original and active participant in the Model United Nations (MUN) events that are organized here in Chiang Mai. CMIS has a long history of outstanding extracurricular Fine Arts programs that encompass all the areas of Fine Arts – Visual Art shows, and Music, Dance, and Drama productions in which students are encouraged to participate. CMIS has also hosted the Boy Scouts of America Troop 731 Far Eastern Council, the only BSA troop in the North of Thailand, for over 30 years.
Our students stay busy with both academics and extracurricular activities. We have a strong community to support our students, and we encourage and greatly appreciate parent volunteers in our school programs.
