Thank you for joining us last Saturday (March 18) at the annual SIS International Winter Bazaar event. We were thrilled to see such a good turnout, from students and teachers to community members, with over 2000 guests enjoying the 40 international booths at The Bay Campus.
SIS International Winter Bazaar is a traditional event celebrating our diversity as a school. This year, we sectioned our outdoor field into four areas, the international booths from various countries were placed on the track, the game area was at the 5-aside pitch, and the craft area was on the basketball court, leaving the centre field space for guests to enjoy the day meeting old and new friends.
Mr. Harish Kanabar, the Head of Shekou International School, remarked:” There’s a fund-raising component to the IWB as we invite local charities to the event to raise money for their good causes, such as the Haichang Community Service Station. A positive growth mindset and mutual respect are represented amongst the SIS community and throughout this event.”
One of the highlights of this event is how engaging the SIS community is. The booth organisers are a variety of SIS families, teachers, and friends, reflecting how much of a close-knit community we are. It is worth mentioning that part of the income from this event will be donated to our Parent Support Association to support further suitable activities that benefit our students. This year we aimed to promote sustainability by encouraging guests to bring their own water bottles, plates, etc.
Shekou International School is proud of our outstanding and inspiring school community. We look forward to seeing you again at our next International Winter Bazaar on December 9, 2023.
“This is the first time we’ve joined an event like this, really deepens my impression of the internationalism of SIS. Walking around, you see people from all over the world speaking many different languages. I picked up a few greeting words from talking to the booth owners! Thank you for having us. “

“SIS Winter Bazaar is an event we love. I’m bringing my family and friends together to enjoy the cuisine this year. I have to say. This is exactly how I remembered it from last year, if not better. I’m glad to be part of this community.”
