  7. Q: What is “CAS”? A: Students can choose from a range of activities that will make a difference to themselves or others through the lens of either in Creativity, Action or Service: A Creativity activity is interpreted broadly to include a wide range of arts activities and experience that involve creative thinking and implementing personal initiative. An Action activity is defined as one in which offers personal challenge. A Service activity is one in which the students perform some aspect of assistance for the community either locally or globally or as part of a voluntary exchange. Q: Why do students need to complete all “CAS”? A: Students may not opt for an individual category of activity more than once so that over their three years (Y8-10) they have a variety of experiences. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs General - 1

  8. Q: What do parents need to do for ‘SIS goes MaD’? A: Parents need to review carefully their children’s three choices, and to be sure that their children are capable of participating in each. For example, if they choose an activity that is physically demanding – are they able to endure the rigour? PLEASE be careful in the selection process. Parents are financially responsible for the trips that their children take on. Q: What are parents financial responsibilities? A: All ‘SIS goes MaD’ activities have been costed as well as possible. Final costs may change in some cases because, for example, airlines are unwilling to give firm prices well in advance. As sometimes happens in Asia, natural or political difficulties can lead to a decision to reroute a particular activity. It may be necessary to cancel an activity entirely, in which case alternative arrangements will be made. Whilst the school will do all that is possible to prevent any losses, parents do have to assume the financial risk involved with the Week. Neither SIS nor its travel agents guarantee to underwrite costs of activities cancelled for safety or other reasons. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Parents

  9. Q: We have forgotten our Gateway parent login password. What can we do? A: Parents can reset their Gateway password by following these steps: Go to SIS website (www.sis.edu.hk) and click the orange GATEWAYicon on the right. At the Login window, click on "forgot password or login name?" and then type the email address registered with SIS. An email with Gateway login credentials will be sent to the registered address. When parents login to the Gateway for the first time login using the new auto-generated password, they will be asked to confirm the DOB(s) of their child(ren) currently with SIS first before being prompted to change to a new password.  Otherwise, for security reason, parents would only have limited view of the Gateway.If parents can successfully log in to the Gateway, but cannot see the registration page or child(ren)'s information, click on "Account" at the top right corner to confirm child(ren)'s DOB.  Try logging out, then log in again, if the first attempt is unsuccessful. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Parent Gateway Login

  10. Q: What should students do before they enrol on the Gateway? A: Students should discuss thoroughly their intentions with their parents. If they want to choose an activity that involves a high cost must ensure that their parents are fully in agreement with this. Q: Can a student skip ‘SIS goes MaD’? A: All students are expected to participate in ‘SIS goes MaD’ activities. Only under very special circumstances can a student skip MaD. In such case, student MUST seek prior approval from MaD Co-ordinator in charge of ‘SIS goes MaD”. Q: Are students free to do anything they want during their trips? A: All groups will be under the supervision and direction of at least one SIS teacher. The teachers-in-charge of activities will not allow the students to engage in any activity that is not covered under the parameters of the description written on the website without consultation with the school or supporting external organisation. All school conduct and discipline codes will be adhered to throughout the activity. In addition, if travelling abroad we expect students to obey the laws of the host country and to be sensitive to the culture of the people. We expect all students to refrain from any involvement with alcohol or drugs. In some countries, indulging in such activities carries very severe penalties. Violations of school rules will be reported to the Head of House for follow-up. Consequences of breaking rules are similar to in-school violations of those rules. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Students

  11. Q: What do activity costs include? A: Unless specified, activity costs should have included transportation, activity package, insurance and administration. For overseas activities, costs DO NOT include:inoculation fees, physician consultation fees or visa fees. Q: Why is deposit necessary? A: Deposits, non-refundable and non-transferrable, are needed for some trips to secure places. This is stated on each activity in this booklet. SIS also needs funds to secure bookings with airlines and tour operators in order for the trips to go ahead. Q: If we want special attention for our children during the trip, is there additional cost involved? A: Although we are committed to an equal opportunity policy, some of the activities are very physically demanding which may mean that some students will need one-to-one support for them to be able to participate. Parents should be aware that this can be provided, but only at additional cost. They may also want to consult with activity leaders about the demand involved. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Costs

  13. Q: Why do parents need to complete a separate ‘Parent Consent Form’ for ‘SIS goes MaD’? A: The 'SIS goes MaD’ Parent Consent Form is specific to the Week and MUST be submitted in order for students to take part in activities during the week. Due to some higher risk activities involved, the general consent parent form does not serve the purpose. Q: Where can we find the ‘SIS goes MaD’ Parent Consent Form? A: The form can be downloaded at the school web site. The form can also be collected at the school main reception from March 13 onwards. Completed forms MUST be returned by March 22. Q: We haven’t seen the Student Medical Form. How can we inform the school of our children’s latest medical information? A: To ensure up-to-date student medical and contact information, parents are highly recommended to use their Gateway parent login to update any information of their children. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Forms

  14. Q: Why is a copy of travel document necessary? A: A copy of student’s travel document (most likely the passport) is ONLY necessary if student has chosen at least one overseas option. The copy of travel document is for name checks. For security reason, airlines are stringent in matching names on air ticket and passport. Different names may result in students being refused to boarding, not to mention the potential penalties involved. Q: My child has more than one passport. Which one should we submit? A: Students holding more than one passport should submit a copy of the one they plan to use. Names on passport MUST match name of air ticket issued. Difference in names will result in students being refused to board the plane. Q: Can students use their HKID Card or the "China Home Return Permit Card” (回鄉卡) instead of their passports? A: The HKID card is NOT a recognised travel document for overseas countries. Holders of the “China Home Return Permit Card” (回鄉卡) must use their Card to travel to China, not with their passports. Q: Does SIS arrange travel visa for students? A: Parents/Students are responsible to arrange their own visas, if travel visas are required. SIS can provide necessary supporting documents such as school letter, travel itinerary and travel insurance for visa applications. As visa applications take time, parents and students are recommended to arrange for visa once the activity allocation is announced. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Travel Document

  15. Q: How can students enrol to activities? A: Enrolment is ONLY accepted via the Gateway. Students should use their Gateway login to enrol. Detailed procedures can be found in this booklet. Q: Can student make changes after the Gateway enrolment is closed? A: Once enrolment is submitted via the Gateway, students can only make changes with special permission from the MaD Co-ordinator in charge of ‘SIS goes MaD’. Students are HIGHLY recommended to think through their choices and discuss with their parents before enrolling. Q: What is the consequence if students do not enrol by the enrolment deadline of March 21? A: Once the system is closed, no more electronic enrolment will be accepted. Students need to write to the MaD Co-ordinator in charge of ‘SIS goes MaD’ for enrolment. Students should also realise that if they wish to be allocated one of their choices, enrolling late or submitting after March 21 may affect the chance of getting those choices. Q: My son/daughter may be leaving SIS next school year. Do they need to enrol for ‘SIS goes MaD’ 2013? A: If students are definitely not returning next school year, enrolment is not necessary. If departure is unsure, enrolment is still recommended. ‘SIS goes MaD’ Oct 2013 FAQs Enrolment

  16. Q: My child chose 3 options, but didn’t get assigned to any one of them. What should we do? A: If, when all applications have been received, an activity is undersubscribed then it will be cancelled. Every effort will then be made to allocate the student to one of his/her other choices. Whereas every effort will be made to assign students to one of their three choices, this may not always be possible. Should this happen, the student(s) concerned will be invited to make three additional selections. Q: How are students allocated to their activities? A: Allocations are on a first-come-first-served basis, per date & time of student enrolment recorded on the Gateway. Students are considered first for their 1st choices. If 1st choices are full/cancelled, their 2nd/3rd choices will then be considered. Q: When can students find out about their allocated activities? A: Upon closing of enrolment on March 21, 9pm, student records on the Gateway will be taken for allocations. The Head of Family, Heads of House and teachers-in-charge of each activity, will approve the final group lists. Any student who has a record of poor behaviour may be excluded from certain trips.

  46. ‘SIS goes MaD’ 2013 – Y8-10 GAS01 Cambodia: Siem Reap Service & Community Insight This Cambodia service trip is based out of Siem Reap. While Siem Reap itself is a tourist hotspot, the group will work in remote villages to the north of the city, where the impact of tourism has not had the same effect on the economy and lives of the inhabitants. The project will be carefully chosen according to what best serves the community at the time – perhaps assisting in school classrooms with education and mentoring, or providing assistance with other needs such as refurbishing or rebuilding classrooms, physical work in the village, setting up libraries, or similar projects that are required at the time of visit.The opportunity to improve the lives of others and enhance education experiences in impoverished areas is an incredible privilege, and is guaranteed to be a life-changing experience. Students will come back from the trip with new friends, incredible memories and as more mature, socially aware global citizens. The value of the trip will reach into many parts of the students’ livers, and the cross-cultural relationships developed will be a source of happiness and inspiration for many years to come. The days are long and intense, and students will throw themselves into the project. Rather than being there to watch from the sidelines, they are to become actively involved in useful and life-changing projects in the community.

  47. ‘SIS goes MaD’ 2013 – Y8-10 GAS01 Cambodia: Siem Reap Service & Community Insight Highlights of the trip: Learning some basic Khmer words and phrases. 3-Day Service project with the local community The group will work in the villages of Kompheim and Treak, both lie just outside of Siem Reap town and are villages of extreme poverty. Theme of recurrent projects: Working with a local school. Depending on the need of the local community, this may be based around teaching and mentoring in a school. If so, then students will have prepared lesson plans and ideas in advance and split into groups to work in the classrooms. Leaving a tangible change. Many of the work involve building important structures such as health clinics and school classrooms from plastic bottles and dry plastic waste from around the village. Groups may also be involved in painting, gardening, building or refurbishing projects which are necessary in the schools or villages as a whole. These would be under the supervision of an appropriately qualified adult to ensure that standard is of a level suitable for long-term benefit. Play sport and games with the local students. This is a great way of breaking down barriers and an important part of the interaction.
