Christmas Performance Highlights Student Talents
There was a fabulous array of talent on display as the AIS community came together to enjoy the Christmas Production on December 12th.
The centerpiece of the performance was an adaptation of Modest Mussorgsky's "Pictures at an Exhibition". Our students and staff had worked incredibly hard to make it the best Christmas show with a bigger number of items on the program, well-acted play and wonderful decorations.
AIS students treated all to a number of marvelous performances, sang a selection of songs, and staged Swan Lake which was another splendid occasion enjoyed by those who attended our Christmas Production.
All performers, backstage helpers and, of course, all AIS staff deserved cheers and hearty round of applause at the end of the show.
What a talented bunch of students and a fantastic way to end the term in AIS!

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!
