ELEMENTARY & PRIMARY Cute Beauties Look at our little cute beauties from Turkey and Northern Iraq. They are here to welcome patrons to the China booth at Time International School Cultural Carnival held on 15th March 2014. They showed us that no matter from which country we come from, we should live in harmony and respect our different culture and customs. So, let's Live, Love and Laugh.

International Primary Curriculum (IPC) The IPC sub-unit for this term is “Let’s Celebrate”. In this sub-unit, students focused on subjects like Society, Art, Physical Education, History, Music and Technology. Students were able to experience variety kinds of hands–on activities such as making party hat, eye mask, lantern, goody bag, flower craft and many more exciting activities. Overall in this sub-unit, students learned how different groups of people celebrate different events and how people plan for a celebration.

The Theatre Visit With Elementary and KS 1 Students

Social Week In conjunction with Social Week, the Year 4 had a splendid activity parallel to their current topic in Geography which was ‘Lifestyle in India’. In order to discover more, this group of enthusiastic students were very curious to know which food is famous in India. Therefore they virtually flew to North India and learnt how to make chapattis. It wasn’t easy though! However, everyone in Year 4 got their hands-on with sticky wheat flour and patiently moulded it into nice soft dough, which was then perfectly ready to be toasted. Finally, after all the hard work, everyone sat together and had a feast. Good job Year 4! :D

SECONDARY Cultural Day Cultural Day was one of the biggest and most colorful of events this semester. Not only did we get to learn about different cultures but also to experience them. Each booth was a world of its own, containing flags, pictures, artifacts, gifts, food and many other miscellaneous items. Everyone was dressed in their national costumes. It was a refreshing change to see everyone representing their own identities. We also witnessed colourful performances by our students, who had worked hard to prepare interesting songs/dance for the audience. It was an enjoyable experience for all. From Sports Festival to Cultural Day, the months of February and March had them all. Students and teachers alike enjoyed the much-awaited activities and events that followed months of hard work and planning. The following are not just pictures but moments of happiness that will be etched in our memories for years to come.

The top floor generally houses current shows, the second is a permanent exhibition of the trade history of Malaysia as well as the history of money in Malaysia, whilst the first floor houses the Malaysian economic history. Our students learnt about money of all kinds - from coins and notes to tokens and even commemorative collections. It was a learning experience for all.
