National Holiday Message 2022

Dear CISH Parents and Guardians,

On behalf of all staff at CISH, it is my great pleasure to send to you and your family best wishes as we are getting close for the October National Holiday. 

欢度国庆 -huān dù guó qìng, “Enjoy the National Day Holiday”!

As a result of the National Holiday there will be no classes from Saturday, October 1st to Sunday, October 9th.  All classes will resume on Monday October 10th.

We would like to take this opportunity to sincerely thank you for your support on our IB Evaluation Visit on becoming a 5-year old IB World School that took place last week. Without your support we would not have achieved this journey.  Of course, it will be a few months until the final evaluation is sent back from IB. 

In light of the Hefei Education Bureau’s latest notification on COVID travel restrictions for the upcoming National Holiday break, students at all schools in Hefei are strongly recommended to remain in Hefei during the break. The COVID Virus has not gone away yet. There are still a few places/areas in Mainland od China where COVID cases are confirmed. With the increased possibility of travel during the National Holiday, it would be safer for all CISH families to remain in Hefei. 

If leaving Hefei is absolutely necessary, parents please write an email and send it to the head of school Mrs. Peggy Gorman-Mitchell at and a copy of the email to our nurse Ms. Chen Shanshan at for approval before your departure. Please indicate your name, your child’s name and grade, travel destination, departure time, personal contact number, expected return time and other necessary information. 

Parents are also obligated to report your travel to your communities upon returning to Hefei and follow the community requirements in regards to COVID related requirements. Students who leave Hefei can only come back to school after completing all the COVID related government requirements and providing the green healthy code and travel code along with a negative COVID test result within 48 hours prior to the time of returning to school. 

Starting the evening of Thursday, October 6th, parents are required to submit health code and travel code of all parents, your child(ren) (if applicable), as well as other family members who share the same household as the student to the mini-program, either in the bus group for bus-students or in the class group for non-bus students, each day between 17:00 to 21:00, leading up to Sunday October 9th. After school reopens on Monday, October 10th, the submission will follow the regular cycle of Sunday to Thursday.      

Thank you for your continuous support! We wish all of our CISH families a happy and relaxing holiday and everyone in the family remains healthy and safe!
