St Patrick’s Day

On Wednesday 25rd March the school will celebrate St. Patrick’s Day (the patron Saint of Ireland).

Lessons will continue as normal, but our usual assembly at 11:30, will be devoted to songs and displays about this celebration.

Green is the colour of Ireland. We have invited the children to wear green on Wednesday. So if your child has a green jumper, shirt or blouse then they are encouraged to wear green that day. If your child does not have green clothes then a small ribbon, scarf or tie will do. There is no need to buy green clothes especially for this day.

We would also like to invite parents to this special event.

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!
