Week without Walls
As you can see from the pictures, our overseas trips have now all left Singapore for their WWW trips. The grade 10 students were the first to depart in the morning for Cambodia, followed by the grade 11 students heading off to Lombok and finally the grade 9 students to Vietnam. To keep abreast of what is happening please access the website - students and teachers will be posting photos and updates of their daily adventures; http://issweekwithoutwalls2017.weebly.com/
Our students involved in the local trip will kick of their adventures tomorrow at a Cooking Challenge.
ISS Spring School Delights
I would like to introduce our inaugural ISS Spring School Delights 2017 with a whole range of exciting activities. For the younger children they could be outdoors learning about the local flora and fauna and environmental sustainability, or keeping healthy through dance and exercise. For our High school students who want to improve their English language skills, we will be offering an intensive 2 weeks course to help students be a more confident English language student by the end of Spring.
Whether you want your students just to have fun and exercise; or delight in new discoveries outside of the classroom; or speak English better– the ISS Spring School Delights 2017 will achieve all of the above! Each day’s a learning journey, with hands-on experiences in language immersion, science, and sports.
So don’t miss out. Go to issspring.edu.sg or call +65 9722 5340 or email firstname.lastname@example.org to sign up now.
Our grade 12 students begin their Mock exams tomorrow - these will run for 10 days at school. All students have been provided with their timetables and revision schedules. We wish them all the best in the examinations.
Last month we focused on the IB Learner Profile Open-minded. '"We critically appreciate our own cultures and personal histories, as well as the values and traditions of others. We seek and evaluate a range of points of view, and we are willing to grow from the experience." (IBO, 2006) The following students are acknowledged as being open-minded:
