Head of Primary Message Week 3

Today, we welcomed Yr6 parents into school to learn all about the upcoming residential camp to Temburong. These experiences are what make education at ISB so balanced, every student has the opportunity to spend time out in the wild, experiencing the magnificent jungle. There are some exciting activities planned for camp this year and we look forward to sharing them later in the term.

Student leadership is a fundamental element of school life. This week, we are inviting applications from students in Yr3 to Yr6 to represent their class on the Student Council.

Student Council

All applications for the Student Council must be made in Seesaw as a response to the Activity within the Special Events folder. You can find out more about the Student Council by clicking here.

Our Primary House Captains have also been busy this week, planning events and preparing for the special House Weeks coming up. As a reminder of the extraordinary impact our House Captains have on school life, we have put together this overview of previous events, competitions and challenges. We can't wait to get going again this year.

Congratulations to all our Stars of the Week, Writers of the Week, NumBots and TT Rock Stars champions. It is great to celebrate such achievements in our weekly assemblies. We will also be relaunching Free Write Friday next week for the new academic year. Look out for this in Seesaw starting Friday 16th September. If you would like to read more, we have also published various articles to the Primary Newsfeed, including ways to help children see themselves as writers and wellbeing witting ideas. It is also worth a look back at the Mighty Write as we will be preparing students for this again this year.

School is getting really busy, please make sure you check the Newsfeed Calendar regularly for updates as well as your Seesaw messages.
