34 Zhuhai International School Qiao Island, Tangjia Wan Zhuhai, Guangdong, China Thank you! 1. Approx. two-thirds of our families responded 2. One-fifth responded to the Mandarin survey 3. Overall the survey worked well 5. Positive and constructive feedback 6. Annual event, but not the same each year 7. What we’ve found out…

35 Zhuhai International School Qiao Island, Tangjia Wan Zhuhai, Guangdong, China The things that are important when choosing an international school There were 4 choices – Very important, Quite important, Somewhat important and Not important When combining Very important and Quite Important for any one choice: All choices were over 50% English as language of instruction – 93% Culturally diverse – 80% IB Programmes – 76%* IGCSE was well over 50%

36 Zhuhai International School Qiao Island, Tangjia Wan Zhuhai, Guangdong, China At the Parent Information evening I would like to find out more about… 1.Long-term plans – 91% 2.Facility/Capital development plans – 89% 3.Staffing and structure for both PYP & MYP – over three-quarters 4.Curriculum and approach to education for both programmes – around 70% 5.IGCSE and DP – around 50%

37 Zhuhai International School Qiao Island, Tangjia Wan Zhuhai, Guangdong, China EYP learning environment and curriculum Most parents are happy with the: learning environment (77% - Strongly agree or Agree), and curriculum (67% - Strongly agree or Agree) However there is cause for us to look further into this.

Three-quarters are at least satisfied with the amount of communication they receive about their son or daughters subjects and progress. Few parents ‘strongly agreed’ with the statements about communication, so we need to look further into this Homework – most agreed it was about right, but a third thought it was less than expected.
