Athletic Council

At CIS, our Athletics Program is made up of dedicated student-athletes and coaches. Last school year (2018-2019), the CIS Wolves had a total of 42 teams in the U9, U11, U14, and U19 age groups. Our Wolves compete in the Saigon International School Athletic Conference, either in the A or B Pool of teams. During this period, we won three championships, which were:

  • The U19 Girls' Volleyball Team that won the Pool B title
  • The U11 Boys' Football Team that won the Pool B title
  • The U19 Girls' Badminton Team that won CIS' first-ever Pool A team title

Our student-led Athletic Council is an integral part of organizing and facilitating many athletic events throughout the year, including all our home games, tournaments, and year-end Athletic Banquet.

Art Council

At CIS, students have numerous opportunities to celebrate The Arts. These include music recitals, drama productions, concerts, exhibitions, and a charitable event called Art for Action. These events allow students to display their various talents and take risks in a secure environment.

Global Issues Network Council

The Global Issues Network (GIN) is an organization that operates in schools worldwide. It aims to empower students to address local, regional, and global human and environmental issues. At CIS, students can positively impact their community by engaging in a range of initiatives that include, but are not limited to, Environmental protection Against Trafficking in Women and Child Labour. In addition to education on global issues, students in GIN Clubs attend service trips and local and regional conferences. In 2016 and 2017, CIS hosted the local GIN Saigon conferences that gathered 12 international schools from Southeast Asia.


Anti-Human Trafficking Club: “Since September 2021, the members of the Anti-Human Trafficking Club have been actively spreading awareness about human trafficking by having weekly posts on our Instagram page.”


The Break of Silence is an event that AHT (Anti-Human Trafficking) has done in the past and is looking forward to hosting again! The Break of Silence is a day dedicated to the victims of Human Trafficking, where students will be silent for 7 hours. They will not talk, email, or communicate at CIS to raise awareness about how victims do not have a voice. The money collected in the campaign will be donated to two NGOs that support the victims of Human Trafficking in Vietnam.


One of the newest GIN clubs is the Heartbeat Vietnam club, which works with the Vinacapital Foundation to raise awareness and funds for the medical needs of children in Vietnam’s rural communities with heart conditions. From awareness assemblies to fundraisers at school events, the Heartbeat Vietnam club is committed to helping those in need by bringing together the CIS community.

Houses Council


Phoenix, in ancient Egypt and in Classical antiquity, is a fabulous bird associated with the worship of the sun. They were said to be as large as an eagle, with brilliant scarlet and gold plumage and a melodious cry. The Egyptians associated the phoenix with immortality, and that symbolism had a widespread appeal in late antiquity.


Hydra, also called the Lernean Hydra, in Greek legend, was the offspring of Typhon and Echidna, a gigantic water-snake-like monster with nine heads, one of which was immortal. Anyone who attempted to behead the Hydra found that as soon as one head was cut off, two more heads would emerge from the fresh wound.


Below the thunders of the upper deep,

Far, far beneath in the abysmal sea,

His ancient, dreamless, uninvaded slee

The Kraken sleepeth: faintest sunlights flee

About his shadowy sides; above him swell

Huge sponges of millenial growth and height


Cerberus, in Greek mythology, is the monstrous watchdog of the underworld. He was usually said to have three heads. Heads of snakes grew from his back, and he had a serpent’s tail. He devoured anyone who tried to escape the kingdom of Hades, the lord of the underworld. In some cultures, he is also called a hellhound.
