Invitation to a Coffee Evening

The new Alabuga International school has started very positively and it is a big pleasure to see your children settling into school life and learning each day.

I warmly welcome you to join us at school at 17:30 on Wednesday 17th September for a coffee Evening. This will give you the opportunity to meet the teachers, the Headteacher and the school administration. You will have the chance to see how we plan the academic year 2014 — 2015 and events throughout the year. We would also like to discuss the timetables, school calendar, school procedures, food menus, after school clubs and the teaching of Russian in our schedule.

Usually in International Schools we form a P.T.A. (Parents-Teachers Association). Throughout the year you can join and help us to organise Christmas festivities to decorate the school, help with such events as Maslenitsa celebrations and the Summer Fair. We value and appreciate parents’ support and input into our school events.

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!
