In order for us to do this successfully and create balanced classes it is important that we have as clear a picture as possible of who is intending to return to ISS in August.
Whilst I fully understand that things may happen that cause intentions to change, if you have not done so already, please let myself and your child's class teacher know your current intentions in regards to your children returning to ISS in August.
Please note that since class lists are drafts and may change over the break as new students arrive and people change their intentions, we do not publish class lists until the start of the new academic year.
The Book Swap Tuesday 31st May
Over the next couple of weeks, please help your child to check your bookshelves for gently used books that they do not want to read anymore, and be ready to bring them to school between Monday 23rd and Friday 27th May.
Students will receive tickets for 3 different types of books; chapter books, picture books (including non-fiction) and books in languages other than English.
On Tuesday 31st May, if students have a ticket for a chapter book, they can go to the MPR to swap it for a chapter book, if they have a picture book ticket, they can swap it for a picture book, and so on.
