"Breaking the Walls" in AIS
01.03.2019

This Monday was a day to kick off our Week Without Walls program. This is where learning at AIS comes alive! 

The WWW program in AIS is designed to give students the experiences that will inspire them to become global citizens being aware of the wider world. There was arranged a two-day tour to Moscow, our students visited a science museum “Experimentanium”, Moscow planetarium as well as interactive exhibition of robots from all over the world – “Robostation”. Master classes in financial literacy, business education, emotional intelligence and design thinking, and even robot fights arranged at school have been an amazing experience for everyone!

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!
