XLIS Upcoming Events in August

The beginning of the new academic year is fast approaching and it is almost time to return to school. We hope everyone has had a refreshing summer break and are ready to tackle the new year’s challenges with a positive mindset. We have a number of upcoming events for the month of August that are detailed below.

These are split between primary school (ECE and PYP), secondary school (MYP and DP) and whole school events. If you would like further information about any of these activities, please don’t hesitate to get in touch with our Parent Relations department by email at pr@xalis.com.



Whole School August Events

We will welcome back our returning staff for three days of orientation before school starts.

The event includes greetings from our head of school, Dr. Lily Liu, Curriculum Introductions from our Primary Principal, Mr. Brian Lalor and Secondary Principal, Ms. Daun Yorke, as well as introductions to other relevant information such as communication policies and ECAs.

August 19th - First Day of School

XLIS will welcome back its students for the first day of school. We hope that the first day for our students will set them off on their continued journey towards international mindedness.

August 28th - From 4:30PM - Meet the Teachers Night

We will be holding a ‘meet the teachers’ night. This will give our school community an opportunity to meet their child’s new teacher.

XLIS has also received some wonderful news over the summer. We are now officially a candidate school to be accredited with The Western Association of Schools and Colleges, (WASC). This means that our initial visit in April was a success and we have begun the process towards full accreditation.

We look forward to your participation and support.
