ACAMIS Soccer @ AISHK 2017/02/09 Updated
Our school has a proud tradition of hosting Association of China and Mongolia International Schools (ACAMIS) tournaments, of which we have been an active member since 2005. ACAMIS is a non-profit organisation established to promote communication and development between international schools in Hong Kong and China where participating schools regularly take turns to organise and host events. AISHK will be hosting the ACAMIS Soccer @ AISHK from 20-22 April 2017.
In order to keep the cost down for participants, all athletes are housed by families of the hosting school. Hosting athletes in our homes is an integral part of the ACAMIS experience for both visiting and hosting schools. The experience that our own and visiting students gain from the home stay arrangements is immeasurable. Valuable and lasting friendships are often formed with students from other international schools, where their shared experiences form a bridge of cultural understanding. Without the hosting families, many of these wonderful events would not be possible.
We therefore ask AISHK families to join us in supporting ACAMIS Soccer @ AISHK, in particular families of participating athletes. Hosting two students is preferable, as this will make the visiting students feel more comfortable about staying in an unfamiliar environment. A parent briefing, prior to the arrival of students, will be held at the school to outline all responsibilities. All transport to and from the host families will be arranged, therefore your participation in hosting simply requires you to provide:
- Suitable sleeping arrangements (i.e. beds, pull-outs, bunks, inflatables, futons)
- Hosting for athletes from Thursday 20 April until their departure on the morning of Sunday 23 April (Some or all schools may opt to leave on Saturday 22 April)
- Daily breakfast and evening meals
In order for us to begin the process of placing visiting students in home stay accommodation, we ask that if you are able to host visiting students to please fill in this form. Once you have expressed your availability to host, we will confirm in writing your host students' details closer to the time. This confirmation will be made before 17 March.
Your generosity is the key to our success in hosting the upcoming event. Should you require any further information regarding hosting of ACAMIS students, please feel free to contact us via email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
