Each year, Mrs Palekar mentors a team of students that study Business and Management in the DP, to participate in the Junior Achievement Project (http://www.ja.org.sg/)
On Saturday our students presented at the final and "ISS was the first runner up (2nd prize) in the JA Company Program competition. Our students did us proud - they won the Best video award - a medal - the judges compared it to the Oscars👌
They had ticked all the boxes for all the criteria - Annual report, Video advertisement, Presentation, Trade booth display and Interview with judges. But a local school won the first place - who go to Tokyo for the Final Asia Pacific challenge next month." (Mrs Palekar).
The students were true risk-takers, thinkers, communicators and inquirers and we congratulate them all on this wonderful achievement.
ISS FUN FAIR
It is that time of the year again, time to have fun at the annual ISS FUN FAIR. The Fun Fair will be held on Sunday, 26 February 11am - 3pm. As always this day is open to all in Singapore, so come along and bring all your friends, too!
There will be fun for all ages with a wide range of activities and even some shopping! Our ever popular BOOK STALL will be selling an array of genres in various languages – something for all ages. And don’t forget the FOOD and TREATS … ice cream, sodas, popcorn, cotton candy, baked goods and of course the popular BBQ.
Do you have items you would like to sell? Do you require an opportunity to present your crafts, goods or services to a wide range of people in our community? Then send the PTA an email to reserve your table firstname.lastname@example.org they will be happy to reserve you a spot!
Our students have all returned safely from their Week Without Walls trips. They will have participated in many different service learning projects and they will hopefully reflect on the cultures, people and countries they visited and realise how they truly do 'Make a Difference'. The WWW blog is a testament to this through the many pictures that capture the students engaged in activities and work. The trips cannot take place without our teachers committment and a special thanks goes to them all for accompanying the students and helping make our ISS WWW a memorable one.
