Students of Alabuga International School have joined the World Cleanup Day.

On September 21, more than 80 schoolchildren and teachers took part in a volunteer campaign to clean up the country from the garbage. The Alabuga International School with the Nizhnyaya Kama National Park, went out to clean the forest.

The participants walked around three kilometers along the ecological trail named after Pavel Alentyev and collected more than ten bags of garbage, which included car tires.

World Cleanup day is a volunteer action to unite society, the state, and the media into one team for cleaning natural areas from solid waste.
Also, the teams conduct educational campaigns to promote eco lifestyles, separate, and recycling garbage.

The first World Cleanup Day was on September 15, 2018. It was the largest civil initiative in history that originated in Estonia. This year, more than 20 million people from 180 countries took part in the cleaning around the world!

In addition to cleaning the territory of the reserve, the students got acquainted with the Tanaevsky forest and also learned about the inhabitants and history of the park.

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!
