Another great week of learning and celebrations. Congratulations to our students for hosting such an entertaining and informative Chinese New Year Assembly. It is great to see the confidence and creativity of our young learners as they all found ways to overcome the barriers of being virtual. If you have not yet seen, it’s worth a watch. A special thank you also to Mrs Yang for organising and orchestrating the Assembly, each year the MFL Department do an outstanding job. Next up, National Day celebrations.
Behind every mask on the school campus is a smile, not least in Pre Kindy and Kindy. We regularly post snaps to the Primary Newsfeed and this week is no different. It was also great to have an update from the Early Years and Key Stage 1 Library this week. Ms Andrea does an incredible job each Wednesday and the Virtual Library Story Time is a big hit with children young and old. Stories are also available in Audio form on Spotify (search ISB Primary Stories) or access directly here.
Staff have been inspired by the wonderful photography completion and have launched their own contest; we are asking students and families to vote for their favourites. Who gets your vote?
Thank you to all students in Year 3 to Year 6 who have submitted a video application to join the Student Council. We have been so impressed with the quality of the entries and it is going to be a very difficult job indeed to select the representatives this year. Full details will be shared in the Assembly on Friday 18thFebruary.
A very special thank you this week to Ms Mathilda and Ms Theresa who have not only been working with Year 6 during Virtual School but have also helped to facilitate the return of some Year 7 Students to on campus learning. The new system which allows vaccinated Year 7 students to return can only happen with the care and passion of our amazing staff teams, that is what makes ISB such a special community.
Next Friday, something a bit different. More details to follow but it may be about to get a little chilly and there may be a need to wrap up warm….
