Hello CCS Community,
Progress on our new Primary campus continues on schedule. Year 2 students visited the new campus site with Pak Tom in connection with their Term 2 Unit of Inquiry Big Picture “Learning to understand and live with the physical world”. Year 2 classes are also off to Jungle Fun Tuning In and Finding Out – connecting to the Inquiry Cycle and their Inquiry into “We can invent things to make people’s lives easier”. The related concepts they will explore this term are form, function, change, and innovation. These provocations should lead to some quality inquiry as well as playground development ideas for the new Primary campus. I look forward to learning about their ideas and hearing their proposals.
This week marks the start of our BSSA volleyball fixtures with most of our teams playing their first games. CCS Boys (11-12Y,13-15Y) and Girls teams (13-15Y) play at home on October 30 starting at 3 pm. Please stop by the Secondary Court to cheer on our teams. Go CCS!
Please remember November 8th is a day off for students (enjoy your long weekend) and a dedicated day of Professional Learning and Development for CCS faculty.
Thank you for your awareness to parking lot safety. Safety is a community-wide effort. We appreciate your support and commitment to assisting our Security staff in keeping all of our community members safe.
I hope everyone in our Secondary programme is enjoying Spirit Week.
CAS Students Helping with FoCCS Halloween
By Anastasia Feklistova and Anna Puelacher
Throughout the year, our school has events aimed to celebrate different holidays, whether it would be a Christmas play, Halloween, or the end of the school year. These events are a great source of service experiences for Year 12 and 13 students.
On the 25th of October, FoCCS hosted the annual Halloween event on the primary campus. Numerous students from both IB years took the opportunity to volunteer and help at this event. There were IB representatives at the popcorn stand, face painting, photo booth, doughnuts, and candy floss stand. These events are a great way to participate in service experiences and are an opportunity to have fun with your friends and our younger peers on campus, as long as you remember to write a reflection about it.
“This was the first time I went to the Halloween party that was hosted by FoCCS. I was truly amazed at how many activities were going on and the groups of people in their spooky costumes. I volunteered an hour of my time to do free face painting. It was fun having kids come up with what they wanted as their face paint masterpiece! I did what I could do, and they seemed content with the results. I would highly recommend doing these simple volunteering positions for school … Remember to take quick photos of your activity.” – Nour Hajjar, Year 13SB.
We encourage all current and future IB students to keep a lookout for these kinds of events, and also take the initiative in getting involved more in FoCCS events in case they require any extra help.
Last week, Batik after school activity introduced the Eco-print technique. This batik is made by printing natural materials such as fresh leaves on the fabric. – Ms Neny.
Last Saturday 26th October 2019, Gadis from 5V participated in a walk-trot inter Primary and Junior High School horse riding competition at APM (Adria Pratama Mulya School) Jakarta. She enjoyed the competition and She was in second place. Well done, Gadis!

Warung Hijau project
Drug Awareness week
In Week 2, the CCS wellbeing committee organised a number of special events to draw our student’s attention to the illegal and sometimes legal substances that are unfortunately everpresent in our communities. Throughout the week, teachers used articles and specially prepared resources to spark interesting discussions in-class time. A special assembly on Wednesday had students in Year 9 presenting their findings on harmful substances followed up by a school-wide fact-finding treasure hunt that culminated in a house quiz. On Friday, students in Year’s 10 and up had a Q & A session with a number of individuals who are in recovery from substance abuse. The talks were amazing to witness and really brought home the devastating effects that substance abuse can have on individuals and all those around them, including family and friends. I was especially impressed by the level of maturity our students showed during the sessions.
