  • Cafeteria - Spruced Up!!

    date posted:Tue 29 Oct 2019

    When Parents and Students decide where to go to school, they evaluate the quality of life on campus - where they live, what they eat and how they socialize. Manchester International School’s campus life challenged us to create a new dining experience, with a swanky dining hall, kitchen that broaden the food choices, and a variety of seating arrangements. The result is a more lively, comfortable and intimate experience than any other school dining halls in the vicinity.

    Manchester International School is responsible for both nourishing and nurturing its mostly student population. Procured from local sources, our food is as wholesome and fresh as possible, made from the purest, least processed ingredients, for the purpose of instilling healthy eating habits amidst our beloved young champs!!

  • Global Handwashing Day

    date posted:Tue 15 Oct 2019

    ‘Active Living’ is a part of our PSPE curriculum. The students are taught about maintaining good hygiene that can help to prevent illness.

    Today we celebrated #GlobalHandwashingDay to promote #CleanHandsforAll.

    In Kindergarten it is a regular routine to discuss about the cleanliness during Circle time. As we celebrate this day as International Hand wash day, our tiny tots actively learnt the steps to wash hands through the following rhymes.

    “Tops and Bottoms, Tops and Bottoms, (Rub top and bottom of hands)

    In between, In between, (Rub fingers inside on both hands)

    All around our hands, All around our hands, (Just like it says)

    Then we wash. Bam, Bam, Bam" and reflected the same.

    "You have to dream before your dreams can come true." - A.P.J. Abdul Kalam

    APJ Abdul Kalam's love for students, finds best voice when he said, "Dream, Dream, Dream, Dreams transform into thoughts. And thoughts result in action." He had also further said to students, "If you fail, never give up because FAIL means 'first attempt in learning'.

    To celebrate the birthday of the former President Dr APJ Abdul Kalam, students of MIS participated in various activities.

    Dr. Kalam is also known as the Missile Man for his great and significant contribution in the field of science.

    Students paid tribute to the great scientist with respect and devotion.

    Students of grade 1 to 9 participated in drawing, 3D model making, collage work and mask making with enthusiasm.

    Later all the students assembled together at the sports arena wearing the masks of Dr. APJ, holding their creative works.

    About 265 Abdul Kalams appearing all of a sudden, gave our students community a pleasant surprise, who were thrilled to bits on watching this rarity of an occurrence!!

    The Students all together took a pledge on behalf of the entire students of MIS that they will remain the responsible future citizens of our country as per the wish of Dr. A.P.J, following their dreams with dedication, hardwork and perseverance.

  • Kindness Rocks!!!

    date posted:Mon 14 Oct 2019

    "Kind words don’t cost much, yet they accomplish much"_ Blaise Pascal

    Sometimes the world gives us a small sign of encouragement when we need it the most. That’s the idea behind The "Kindness Rocks" Project.

    According to the students of Grade 3, "This was an opportunity for us to spread kindness in a colourful way".

    They were actively involved in making vibrantly coloured stones with words of Kindness painted on each of them.

    This may look like a small activity but the ability to think about Kindness and to understand how it impacts others are the marvel behind this project.

  • Teachers Day @ Manchester International School

    date posted:Tue 17 Sep 2019

    An act of gratitude is absolute only when the receiver feels the true essence with which the giver demonstrates it. And the giver gets the contentment when the receiver accepts it unconditionally.

    Artistically and meaningfully decorated class entrances, thoughtfully designed class displays, aesthetically scripted cards and thank you notes, added worth to the effort of this great profession.

    The true display of Gratitude was optimized at Manchester International School, when the distance between the teacher and taught gently dissolved with mark of mutual respect!

    The whole day spearheaded by the student Council, had performances and acts by students across the programmes. Each one outshone the other in terms of excellence and quality- budding from the noble gesture of ‘thanks giving’. The post lunch session had sports organised for the teachers; from simple games as Lemon and Spoon race, to Tug of War- all held in good humor and spirit!

    The High Tea in the school lawns was a demonstration of thanks giving combined with genuine appreciation by the Management.

    As someone rightly said, No one is more cherished in this world than someone who lightens the burden of another.

  • ONAM Celebrations @ Manchester International School

    Unassumingly, the festival of Onam, popularly meant as the Harvest Festival of God's Own County - Kerala, is being pompously perceived as ceaseless celebrations, suggestive of an exclusive era which had wondrously witnessed the essence of the celebrated coexistence of unity and diversity...

    Onam is about colours without discrimination- the floral carpet that beautifies the patio to welcome the legendary king symbolizes the manner in which differences in profusion & patterns could be accommodated wisely to exemplify oneness!

    We, at Manchester International School did celebrate the feelings and the festival of Onam at the school premises, with piety and passion in abundance!!

    Narrating the mythology of Onam the PYP students impeccably threaded the legend and the performances. Starting with the Pookalam, a decorative design with flowers the audience journeyed to watch Kaikottikali a graceful dance that was both enchanting and elegant by our senior girls attired in traditional Kerala sari along with fresh jasmines adorning their hair making it a wonderful sight for the eyes. The Harvest Dance, blending the rustic music and rapid footwork got the whole applauding and tapping their feet loudly. The Onapattu- Traditional Onam Song, Vanchipattu- song associated with Boat Race, and the Folk Dance added hues and rays to the celebration.

    The Inter house floral Carpet competition for the Senior School, and the inter class floral decoration for the Primary School held in the morning heralded the joyous opening of a daylong celebration.

    The traditional Onasadhya marked the most inviting part of the Onam celebrations. The sumptuous delicacies served during lunch included an array of traditional recipes of Kerala followed from time immemorial.

    The fun filled Inter-house games, Vadamvali (tug of war) and Uriyadi (smashing the pinata) saw the day-long merriment of the festivities coming to a close!!

  • 73rd Indian Independence Day Celebrations @ MIS

    date posted:Fri 16 Aug 2019

    “India is the cradle of the human race, the birthplace of human speech, the mother of history, the grandmother of legend, and the great grandmother of tradition. Our most valuable and most instructive materials in the history of man are treasured up in India only…” Mark Twain is believed to have recited these wonderful thoughts on India.

    Much in adherence to the aforementioned, our Young Manchesterians who remain the undeniable epitome of hope and promise of this galloping nation, lived up to the entirety of this momentous occurrence of the 73rd Independence Day Celebrations, at the Manchester International School today!!

    A plethora of awe – inspiring events clearly depicted the unassuming actuality, which primarily remained as the reverberation of parallel thoughts laid bare ostensibly by our profound freedom fighters during the mammoth freedom struggle. 

    The Guest of Honour to grace this historic occasion, Commander A. Muthu (Ex. Navy) is a veteran in the Indian Navy and has been effectively involved in the training and development of technical personnel and has also been the Head of Faculty at the Naval Institute of Aeronautical Technology at Kochi.

    Amongst many responsibilities, Commander A. Muthu had been heading the maintenance of maritime reconnaissance Aircraft named Illyushin – 38. He had remained the Naval Aeronautical Quality Assurance Officer and the Chief Coach for Sailing and Windsurfing Sports.

    Apart from being the Joint Director, Military World Games held in Mumbai in the year 2007, Commander A. Muthu had remained the Command Sports Officer of the Southern Naval Command.

    With an astounding 24 years of commissioned service in Indian Navy, Commander A. Muthu had been commended twice by the Commander – in – Chief for his outstanding aircraft maintenance and social reforms.

    Commander A. Muthu has had rich experiences in teaching at the Indian Institute of Management, Indore, the Naval Institute of Aeronautical Technology, Kochi and the SRM Institute of Science and Technology for about 14 years.

    Commander A. Muthu unfurled the national flag to mark the beginning of the celebrations, followed suit by the National Anthem and the March Past by the four houses, led by the School Captain. 

    Whilst praising profusely on the tremendous feat of the young champs conducting the event with such ease and grace, the Commander left no stone unturned in his endeavour to enlighten the gathering with his profound knowledge and expertise as regards our faithfulness towards the integrity of the nation and the pivotal role of the youth towards transformation of the nation in conquering untrodden heights in the near future!!

    The spirit of freedom and nationalism was well exhibited by the students and teachers of the school by way of a spectrum of patriotic poems, speeches, songs and dance.

    Firmly committed to the task of nation building, the students and the teachers’ sorority at Manchester International School pledged to serve their motherland through spreading education and by serving the community.
