CIE Birthday Rap!

June 19th, 2014

Students from the pre-intermediate class made a rap to celebrate CIE’s 40th birthday!

 

(Sorry for the shaky filming – Marlies was dancing along!!)

Here are the lyrics so you can sing along!

 

Happy Birthday CIE,

Let’s have a big party,

Let’s celebrate 40 years,

And sing so loud it hurts our ears.

 

The teachers are a bit crazy,

The students sometimes lazy,

School is so exiting,

We LOVE doing writing.

 

Happy Birthday CIE,

Let’s have a big party,

Let’s celebrate 40 years,

And sing so loud it hurts our ears.

 

Every Friday we have a test,

We always want to be the best,

But homework is always too long,

So our answers in the exams are wrong.

 

Happy Birthday CIE,

Let’s have a big party,

Let’s celebrate 40 years,

And sing so loud it hurts our ears.

 

The kitchen is small and busy,

Because we can have coffee for free,

And if you want to go to the loo,

You should early join the queue.

 

Happy Birthday CIE,

Let’s have a big party,

Let’s celebrate 40 years,

And sing so loud it hurts our ears.

 

 

This year CIE proudly celebrates 40 years of outstanding achievement in international education. Founded in 1974 by the owner, Mr Kenichi Ikeno, to promote English Language courses in an academic context, CIE has built an excellent reputation for the quality of its courses, the success of its students and the friendly and supportive atmosphere at the school.

The fact that we enter our 40th year with great confidence is partly the result of our low staff turnover. Luke and John, our Co-Principals, have been at CIE since 2007 and those of you who have worked with CIE over the past six years will be familiar with our staff. Amy (Activities and Student Welfare), Hisashi (Finance),  Irma (Director of studies), Max (Accommodation)  and Olivia (Marketing) have provided the element of continuity which in turn has helped them to create the wonderful atmosphere at the school. We were very happy to learn that the Independent Schools Inspectorate described the quality of the curriculum, teaching and learning achievement as “exceeds expectations”.

We shall continue to help international students to improve their English and to promote their academic development. In particular we shall try hard not only to encourage our students to have new eyes but also, and in particular, to appreciate fully the beauty of Oxford. Described by Matthew Arnold as “whispering from her towers the last enchantments of the Middle Ages”, Oxford must be one of the most beautiful cities in the world and we are convinced that we have a duty to help our students to appreciate and understand this amazing city.
