It is my pleasure to invite you and your family to the Music Department’s 2016 Whole School Winter concert, which is due to take place in the school canteen, from 2.00pm – 3.20pm on Thursday 8th December. The concert will feature whole class and small selected groups from Grade 3 to Grade 12. The concert aims to bring the whole XIS community together to celebrate the many musical talents of our students here at XIS.

The concert will feature music from a wide range of popular artists such as Joni Mitchell, Coldplay, Slade and include traditional holiday music often heard during the lead up to Christmas. The students would be delighted to see as many parents attend as possible to join in the fun and festivities

      The students, ranging from Grades 6 – 11, discussed and debated a range of current topics in committees modelled on the UN.

     In addition to all students confidently participating and gaining experience as delegates, two XIS students were honoured with awards in recognition of valued contributions to their committee.


    David He and Jeffery Kim (Grade 10) were both recognized for their participation in the Human Rights Council (HRC), where they debated on the question of the death penalty, and the support of firearms to the protection of human rights. David received an Honourable Mention, and Jeffery was awarded Best Delegate in the HRC.

     Many XIS students and teachers commented on the success of the conference, and valued the opportunity to work with MXIS.

    This week, students have focused their attention on preparations for XIAMUN – the MUN conference hosted by XIS, taking place Friday 4 and Saturday 5 November.

MUN Students Invited to Lead at Prestigious Beijing Conference


Recently three of our students applied for Chair positions at BEIMUN – one of the largest and prestigious Model United Nations simulations in Asia, held at the International School of Beijing every year.  1500 students attend from about 80 schools around the world.

This year, ISB had about 30 Chair positions for external applicants.  Chairs of committees need to prepare, organize and run groups of up to 100 student delegates.
We are happy to announce that all three applicants were successful.  Crystal ShinMartin Lozada, and Kelly Kim.  Crystal will be President of the Disarmament Committee; Martin the Deputy President of the General Assembly; Kelly the Deputy President of the Human Rights Commission.
This is quite a tribute to the years of MUN service and commitment that these students (and so many other MUN students) have shown over the years here at XIS.

BEIMUN ( will be held in March.
