PAFA Events

International Food Fair (IFF)-- PAFA FUNDRAISER

The IFF is one of the biggest events of the year, and THE MAJOR FUNDRAISER for PAFA. It is a food sampling festival hosted by our SCIS international community of parents. Country ambassadors organize various country themed booths with cuisines from all over the world. All the foods are made by SCIS families, or come from community restaurants that generously donate food at reduced cost. Over 20 regions/countries are represented.

The day includes music, performances, games, a raffle and LOTS of food! It is a great way to meet your Country Ambassador, your fellow country people, and our entire culturally diverse SCIS community. It's a fantasic family fun day!

This is PAFA's fundraiser for the year. Money raised from this event supports extra-curricular/enrichment items for students and the school community.

This event is held annually in October on the HQ Main Campus and it requires many parent and student volunteers. Please contact your country ambassador or the PAFA Events team at to get involved.

Market Day (monthly)

On Market Day, international restaurants and SCIS community vendors have food-related tables, selling lunches, snacks, and other treats.  Booths are set up in the HQ main campus courtyard under tents – so it goes on rain or shine. This event is held monthly except during the months of December-February. Market Day is a great opportunity to mingle with students and other parents. 

Teacher Appreciation Week 

This is the week we show our SCIS teachers how much we appreciate all they do! PAFA plans something for every day, Monday to Friday. In the past we have done small gifts, lunches, lucky draws and the  very popular dessert bar! Lots of opportunities for parent volunteers to help with this week, from making signs, helping with events and baking/donating treats.

ECE's Charity Art Auction 

This will be the 7th Annual ECE Charity Art Auction in support of Heart to Heart Shanghai. This event is held on the ECE Campus and is an adults-only evening event. It features a live auction of amazing class masterpieces created by the students under the guidance of classroom teachers and assistants, with the support of parent volunteers. There is also a silent auction featuring some great sponsor donated gifts and prizes. This is a really fun event for a great cause!

ECE's Cultural Craft Fair 

This is a fun family day of international arts and crafts geared toward first and second grade and ECE students. Plan to stay and have lunch from one of the vendors selling delicious food and drinks and enjoy a picnic on the playground.

End of the Year Picnic 

The PAFA Spring picnic is held on the HQ Main Campus field. Food is available for purchase from a variety of vendors and PAFA sells beer and wine. This event is a great opportunity to relax with your SCIS friends and forget the end of the year rush.
Check the Principal's Weekly Newsletters for more information about these, and other PAFA events, we have planned throughout the year. And, if you would like to volunteer contact your PAFA representative or the PAFA Events Team
