Head of Primary Message Week 30

Selamat Hari Raya Aidilfitri to all ISB families celebrating this week. In conjunction with Hari Raya Celebration Assemblies in school, all Primary students are invited to attend school wearing local national dress, smart formal dress or green items of clothing on Friday 13th May 2022. Unfortunately, we will not be inviting parents to join the Assemblies this time, but we will take lots of photos and videos and share through the Primary Newsfeed.

We are so incredibly proud of our Year 6 students who have continued to flourish following the return to campus. This is an early notification to all Year 6 parents that the Year 6 formal Ceremony will take place on Friday 17th June this year. Did you know that we publish all important upcoming dates to the What's On section of the Primary Newsfeed?

Reporting to parents is an integral part of our continued home-school partnership. This week, we have shared Times Tables Heat Maps for all students in Year 3 to Year 6. We are also working to ensure students in Year 1 and Year 2 are carefully guided towards the expected standard in Phonics. We will continue to share meaningful assessment data through Seesaw in order to enhance learning outcomes for all. Towards the end of the school year, we will also be reporting to parents in more detail. Some elements may look slightly different this year due to the alternative virtual methods of instruction in Term 1 and Term 2. However, we will always make sure information shared with parents is informative, useful and accurate.

Congratulations to all students in Sangang Blue house, this is the first time a Bandar House has surpassed 9,000 House Points. This is a tremendous achievement and the overall totals remain very close indeed.

If you have been on campus this week, you will have seen that the community theme at the Friendship Circle is Save Our Seas: SOS. Below is a short message from Mark Evans, Eco School Coordinator at ISB.

The Eco Team would like the ISB community to join us in highlighting the overuse of single use plastic. During a short walk along any Borneo beach, you will see hundreds of single use plastic items polluting our amazing island.

In a short while the plastic breaks down into small particles and is ingested by fish and finally into our own digestive systems when we eat the fish.

This is very unhealthy and dangerous for all organisms in the food chain.

We ask that you remove any plastic bottles from the beach and bring in the plastic tops to our Friendship Circle collection bin.

We will then add to the collection tube to highlight the issue and share this information with our community and governmental agencies.

Thank you for your continued support.

Mr Michael Everett | Head of Primary
