Start of a New School Year at AIS
Colourful balloons and music, happy faces of children meeting each other after summer holidays, teachers and parents holding bouquets of flowers — a new school year has started at Alabuga International School!
Lorraine Butler, the school principal, congratulated all AIS community on the beginning of a new academic year and introduced teaching staff of the school renewed by six foreign educators. Our students will get knowledge led by the experienced teachers from Ireland, Germany, the USA, Australia, the Philippines and even Zimbabwe. Such a diversity in nationality of teachers will make it possible to foster in our children tolerance and respect to people of all nationalities from the very childhood— a quality being so important in the modern globalized world.
During AIS parents meeting there were highlighted school plans for this academic year as well as the main organizational issues. Children meanwhile were engaged in a festive programme that included sport activities, competitions, bubble show, sweet table and other pleasant surprises.
Lots of new and interesting things are waiting for us ahead! We wish everybody good luck and success in a new school year of 2016/2017!
