Thank you for Maslenitsa show

Dear Parents,

Thank you for attending and supporting last Friday’s Maslenitsa celebrations at school. It was a successful concert performed by Year 1 and Year 2 students.

We also incorporated other elements of the Russian festival which worked really well, such as games and burning of the Chuchelo Doll. (What in Britain we call British ‘Pancake Day’.)

Many parents were invited to join with their children for the afternoon’s activities. We received a lot of positive feedback. I would like to ‘Thank’ our Russian colleagues for planning and directing the Maslenitsa show and for making the day a memorable one.

I hope finally that we can say ‘Goodbye’ to winter and ‘welcome’ in the spring.

Once again, thank you to all parents for the support and attendance in making the day special. It is much appreciated.

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!
