Special Day in AIS
March the 7th turned out to be a special day in AIS. It was filled with bright emotions, fun and festive atmosphere. Happy faces of parents and students just emphasized the significance and importance of the event celebrated – it was the Family Day.
An incredible tension with emotions running high was experienced by the male family members during a fellow football match. The moms got energized with positive feelings while playing a pioneer ball. However the emphasis of Family Day was not on competition, but on parents-students interaction through participation in sporting games and festive concert that involved solo performances of students and teachers as well as family numbers.
The festivities that lasted until evening was an opportunity for AIS families to relax and socialize in an informal setting, while speciаlly arranged space with the family photos - «Family Wall» enabled every family to share the bright and happy moments of their life with the entire school community.

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!
