AIS Takes Training in Cambridge
The Introductory Training of Cambridge Primary Mathematics was attended by Math teachers of Alabuga International School on November, 23-24. The course was intended for teachers who are new to Cambridge programmes and qualifications. Our faculty members were introduced to syllabuses and curriculum frameworks enabling them to teach with greater confidence. Under the guidance of experienced Cambridge tutors they were working closely with other teachers to develop understanding and share ideas and experiences.
Math teachers were aimed to be equipped with a range of concepts and tools for application in teaching as well as developed personal insights into own teaching practices and the practices of international colleagues.

IB Student Conferences: Opportunities for Empowerment

Student conferences within IB PYP programme were held at AIS to reflect the students’ progress in academic disciplines and core competencies under the new school strategy on April 10-11.

Students of KG1 - Grade 2 and their parents participated in the Three-Way Conferences that involved three parties: students, parents and teachers. The conference participants discussed students’ progress and achievements emphasizing on the strengths and areas for improvement as well as setting future goals for the next academic year and the ways to assist in their attainment. AIS students shared their thoughts and ideas on inquiries conducted, assessed their role in inquiry activities, demonstrated the works, selected by them well in advance with the teacher’s support, and their portfolios.

The format of Student Led Conferences for Grade 3 - Grade 6 allowed the students to arrange and run conferences on their own. The student portfolio was the main focus of the conferences as it compiles many great examples from different units of inquiry. It gives the students the chance to take full ownership of their work while making their parents proud of all that they have done throughout the year.

The days of student conferences turned to be special for the entire school community and gave our students the unique opportunities for empowerment and engagement. We would like to express gratitude to all AIS families for taking the time to recognize the full worth of a strong IB education!
