Dear CISH&SCCSParents and Students


As you may have noticed, some of the teachers at SCCS and CISH have been growing moustaches throughout the month of November. This is to support the global Movember Foundation by raising awareness and money for men’s mental and physical health. (see below for a more in-depth explanation about the Movember Foundation).


We are raising awareness in the classroom by informing our students and are going to have two movie nights to raise some money. The movie night will be held on Wednesday, Nov.30th from 6:00pm.- 7:30pm. for elementray students and Thursday, Dec. 1st from 4:20pm-5:30pm for high school students. You can contribute cash or online at Any and all donations are welcome. All the money raised will go to the Movember foundation.

我们在班里告知学生这个基金会来提高他们的意识,并且将会有两个电影之夜来筹集一些捐款。小学部电影之夜将在本周三(11月30日,今天)晚上6:00-7:30举行,高中部电影之夜将在本周四(12月1日,明天)下午4:20-5:30举行。学生们届时可以直接通过现金捐款或者在家通过 进行网上捐款。欢迎任意金额的捐款,最后所有的捐款都将转给Movember基金会。

Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues, such as prostate cancer, testicular cancer and men's suicide . The Movember Foundation runs the Movember charity event, housed at The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health.”


By encouraging men to get involved, Movember aims to increase early cancer detection, diagnosis and effective treatments, and ultimately reduce the number of preventable deaths. Besides annual check-ups, the Movember Foundation encourages men to be aware of family history of cancer and to adopt a healthier lifestyle.


In 2012, the Global Journal listed Movember as one of the world's top 100 NGOs (non-government organization)
