Tsinghua International School In-Service Week
Welcome new family members!
Welcome returning faculty and staff!
We are together!
On August 23rd, near the end of a green summer day, THIS welcomed all teachers back for the new school year near the end of summer, beginning its In-Service Week. The all-staff training allowed every member of THIS family to come together to meet and review the previous achievements, and learn together to be more prepared for the new school year and become excellent.
New Goals for the New Acdemic Year
The training began with Executive Principal MS. Li Wenping welcoming all the THIS members back to campus. Principal Li started by accomolimenting the excellent work during the summer and expressing her heartfelt gratitude to the staff members who continued to work hard. During the summer, THIS Chinese and foreign leadership teams kept making efforts on completing a number of important teaching and learning issues, including the school survey and annual reflection, teacher growth plan, new school year class schedules, COVID practices and so on. The Chinese and foreign teachers worked together to explore teaching concepts in depth. Meanwhile, the administration team worked tirelessly. On the one hand, to ensure the timely and safe arrival of foreign teachers, the team efficiently handled many foreign affairs matters such as visa and HR issues so as to provide all-round support for the foreign teachers’ life in China. On the other hand, the team also did plenty of work to upgrade the campus equipment and prepare for the opening of the new school year.
In addition, Principal Li expressed her full recognition of the success of the first THIS Summer Camp, which received high recognition and positive feedback from students and parents. Principal Li said that it was everyone’s seriousness and dedication that enable THIS to move forward steadily, while the professional team continued to grow.
Facing the new school year, Principal Li showed various changes in the school’s equipment and facility upgrade, which will bring a full sense of freshness to everyone’s work. At the same time, Principal Li also put forward new expectations for all teachers, hoping that everyone will carry full enthusiasm and continue to hold themselves to a higher standard to be an outstanding educator!

New School Values, New Journey
During the training, Assistant Principal Ms. Bai Wenting highlighted the changes made in THIS vision, mission and core values. Each minor change was made through in-depth discussions and repeated deliberations among the Chinese and foreign teachers. All these were made with the purpose of clarifying the direction of THIS teaching and learning in a more precise manner, as well as guiding THIS to become the model for harmonizing the best of Western and Chinese education and culture.
