Lesson with a chemist working in a SEZ Alabuga’s company
Alabuga International School started summer holidays with fascinating classes in chemistry. Svetlana Klimenko came to visit our young scientists.
Svetlana Anatolievna is the head of the quality department in one of SEZ Alabuga residents – Kastamonu plant. The journey to the world of chemistry began with an introduction to the basic concepts of chemistry and occupational health and safety. After that the young chemists started experimenting. The children learned how to blow up volcanoes, produce Pharaoh’s snakes and learned the names of chemical elements. Children really enjoyed the chemistry lesson. We will be looking forward to continue our fascinating chemical journey.

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!
