MIS is one big family and this year we launched a new MIS Chinese New Year gift box to share our blessings with our community.
Our gift box was designed and prepared with a school focus:
The MIS 2021 Calendar
With guidance from our Director of Visual Arts Ms McLaughlin and Visual Arts Teacher Yawen, our students painted some beautiful scenic prints which are displayed in the calendar. A unique MIS Masterpiece!
Chinese New Year is not complete without traditional "Hong Bao". 2021 is the Year of the Ox and with the help of the Chinese department we organised a "design your own red envelope competition". Well done to all the students that entered, however we had to select one and a huge "happy 牛 year" to Elsa in Year 3! Other entries will be sold by Outreach (our school charity).
Again these were designed by our talented students and staff. The Winners were Natalia in Year 10 for her Fu design and Ms Faye, our Head of Humanities, for using her amazing calligraphy skills to paint our door greetings.
Well we are Scottish at heart and our roots come all the way from Edinburgh, so we had to add a little home flavour to our gift box. Delicously baked and boxed by our Chef Marco, the traditional Scottish Shortbread should be enjoyed with a cup of hot tea (with milk in it of course) .
