Spreading our wings with the QAIS butterfly community art project

QAIS has been growing steadily while expanding opportunities for students of different ages to collaborate and bond as a community.  We cherish every opportunity for older students to serve as role models for younger ones, while younger students can remind older students about the joy of learning and discovery experienced through a child’s eye.  This mutually beneficial relationship of unconditional acceptance and support is at the core of who we are as a school community.

Last Friday, January 12, QAIS teachers and students from toddler to grade 12 came together for a brief presentation in the auditorium followed by a quick journey to our cafeteria where they put their hands, minds, and hearts together in order to create a collective work of art that will symbolize how we are ready to spread our wings and fly to greater heights at the start of our journey on our new campus.

At QAIS, we value the fact that we are a family, bound by our love for learning, exploration, creativity, imagination, and by understanding how we can teach others and learn from others as we strive to become better versions of ourselves. For this reason, full-school opportunities like this one are crucial to keep this spirit alive.

In students’ words, QAIS is a community that makes us think of colors, of relationships, and of stories.  As we begin to write the next chapter of our history, we hope it will be an accurate depiction of who we are when we are at our best and an inspiring tale of human potential and achievement.


青岛美亚国际学校在逐步成长,随着这一成长,在项目中体验工作和协作的机会变得更加复杂。因此,当年龄大一点的学生可以为我们年龄小的学生的树立榜样时,当我们的年纪小的学生时刻提醒我们的高年级学生,学习和探索是一件多么有趣的事情时,我们都应该珍惜这些机会。

1月12日上周五,QAIS从小小班到12年级教师和学生齐聚礼堂,并随后在食堂,用自己的双手、融汇心灵,创造了一件艺术品, 它象征着我们展翅高飞在新的天空。

在QAIS,我们注重一个事实:我们是一个被学习的热情包围的大家庭。我们通过探索,创造和想象力去学习,我们通过与他人相互学习而获取知识,正因为我们如此的探索求知,我们看到了更棒的自己。所以,像这样的机会,对保持住这种精神来说,是至关重要的。

QAIS是一个大家庭,用学生的话来说,它让我们想到各种色彩、学生和老师,以及他们之间的故事,在我们的新一章里,你会从我们的故事中了解我们是谁。
