As you can see from the photo above there was great excitement when students saw our new Imagination Playground equipment. These versatile building blocks allow students countless ways to create, cooperate and have fun. A big thank you to the PTA who provided a contribution towards the purchase of the equipment.
Another big thank you to the PTA and all parents who helped make the International Day such a special event.
Great schools are created by great teachers. It is a testament to the quality of teaching and learning at ISS how in demand our staff are as presenters and consultants to other schools.
Alison Camire ran PD sessions for EY Teachers at Canadian International School on
Developing Emergent Inquiries in the Early Years Classroom.
Sharyn Skrtic is running an online workshop for PYP teachers.

Photo Shoot Tuesday 27th October
On Tuesday we will have professional photographers in school taking the annual individual and class photos.
Free Dress Friday Friday 30th October
Next Friday, 30th October, will be the final Friday of the month and so will be free dress Friday. I know that as this is just a day before Halloween some children will be keen to reflect this in their dress.
Please ensure that children do not dress in a way that negatively impacts their learning or provides a distraction to the learning of other students.
Learning Other Languages Coffee Morning Tuesday November 3rd
How do I help my child to learn additional languages? Our Mandarin and ESL teachers will be presenting an informative and entertaining coffee morning to empower you with strategies to help your child to successfully acquire additional languages.

The 3 Way Conferences will take place on 4th November. At the same time there will be a book fair in the library so it will be great chance to browse and buy books whilst you are up at school with your children.
