New year's party in AIS
The festive atmosphere filled AIS on December 19, although the school has started sparkling with Christmas decorations in the classrooms and corridors long before. It was on this day that the students arranged a real Christmas holiday for parents and all the teachers. There were bright, fiery dances, songs of different genres: from opera classics to modern rock. Even the youngest children, who are only 2 years old, impressed the audience by their performance. Cute deer, mischievous elves and clumsy snowmen... The characters you could see on that day at the school stage. The celebration, as always, was held in a traditionally friendly, family atmosphere AIS. The STEM-highlight of the concert was that at the end of a performance, each class put a handmade STEM toy on the Christmas tree. The concert ended, but the mood of the Christmas holiday has remained and keeps on delighting everyone who had shared this day with 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!
