Year 3’s Geographical & Scientific Adventure!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

Both Year 3 classes went on an exciting geographical and scientific adventure down to Beau Vallon beach today. Both classes looked at the impact of humans on the local beach landscape to consolidate their class work. Students realised there were many positive aspects and many negative aspects of the changes to the physical landscape. To make a positive contribution to the environment, many children carried out a beach clean up as they walked along. 6 bags of rubbish were removed from the beach. Students also did a small survey of the sand, rocks, rivers and rock pools for alive, dead and non-living items. A fun-filled day of learning was had by everyone.

20 Years of Celebrating World Book Day Around the World!

Written by admin. Posted in FrontpageNews

World Book Day and World Wildlife Day 2017 were celebrated in style on Friday 3rd March at ISS. Every student from Reception 1 up to Year 6, and some students in Year 7, dressed as their favourite book characters and paraded in front of parents and families. Each class and the inclusion department commemorated 20 Years of World Book Day celebrations by each creating a life size book cover. Everyone enjoyed seeing the 20 huge book covers get carried through the parade, showing off some of the many amazing books we love to read. Parents then enjoyed sharing stories with their children back in class and the students carried out ‘booky’ activities throughout the day. Thanu from 1M enjoyed sharing his book and sold them in the school playground, generously donating a third of profits to help with the development of the school’s wildlife garden. One child in each class was also awarded the annual ‘Most Improved Reader’ award to recognise their fantastic effort to improve their reading ability.

Thanks to the many contributions from parents, the PTA ran a successful bake sale to raise funds for the creation of a wildlife garden in the school grounds, a whopping SR 8679.50 was raised. We also had around 75 book donations to help replenish the EC and main library. A great day was had by everyone as you can see by the photos!

This week’s stars of the week joined with last week’s group to celebrate their achievements with the Principal.  Students continue to show great improvement in their attitude to learning as well as behaviour.  As a school great emphasis is placed on putting in effort, enjoying the learning process and showing respect for self and others.  As the school was also marking the anti bullying awareness day, the students had the opportunity to share with the Principal their understanding of bullying and what they can do if they or any of their friends are bullied.
