The LIS community is …

Strong and active. Our strength is derived from the active commitment of teachers, parents, and students to education and learning as a community. We organize over 200 events every academic year.

Connected and socially responsible. We are connected to the people of Luanda, Angola and Africa. Students, families and staff participate in a wide range of activities in and around Luanda. Activities range from visiting Angolan schools and cultural sites to collaborating with local organizations to raise funds and accomplish community projects.

Vibrant and inclusive. At the end of any school day, you will find friends chatting in the shade of the jango, students sharing their learning and teachers engaging with families. Our campus is the venue where community members connect and build lifelong friendships. We look forward to welcoming you to the LIS community.

    Every week ELC teachers take it in turns to plan for outdoor provocations with different purposes in mind, in order to elicit thinking and the development of particular skills. Ms. Che’te placed floats with varied shapes and colours for the children to play with and interestingly the children organised them into trampolines. Children experimented with different motions such as hopping, jumping and skipping from one float to the other. While some students made connections between how the floats felt (i.e. ‘it’s wobbly’; EAL learners were seen squatting and uttering ‘rabbit’ to express their experience and understanding) other students made links to the colours and shapes of the floats (i.e. ‘they look like rainbows’ or ‘they are triangles’). All in all, this provocation promoted the development of students’ self-management skills such as gross-motor and spatial awareness – invaluable skills for the growth and development of our students in early childhood.
