New Year's performance 2022
On 23 December, the AIS team and students organized a New Year's Eve performance for the upcoming holiday. Parents were invited as spectators and every grade was part of the story.

Traditionally, the event was organized with the strategic goals of the school. We went on a journey to the year 2089, when humanity acquired the knowledge of how to travel through space and time. The planets of the Solar System are already inhabited. The universe uses energy from the Sun everywhere. Traditional energy sources have been forgotten. Humanity has created a Dyson Sphere to store the Sun's energy. There is peace and quiet everywhere and preparations are made to celebrate the 2090th New Year. Suddenly, the insidious Galactus, a planet-eater, splits the Dyson Sphere's battery and scatters it all over the Solar System. Santa Claus embarks on a journey across the planets for the charging batteries. Calling on famous scientists and astronauts, Santa Claus helps the locals solve their problem. In gratitude, he receives charges for the sphere.

At each stage, students demonstrated knowledge through scientific experiments and intellectual quizzes. Through their joint efforts, the Solar System residents managed to defeat Galactus and save the holiday. The celebration ended with a musical performance by students and teachers.

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!
