Gifted Musicians Inspire our Year 6 Students
On Thursday, February 7th, the Year 6 students were treated to a visit from Ms. Aisia, Mr. Pedro, and Mr. Eponde. These 3 gifted musicians came to talk to the students during the “Week of Inspiration” for the Year 6 Exhibition. In November of last year, Mr. Pedro and a number of other musicians released a single called “Love Matters.” They were invited to talk to the students about how they were inspired to write this song, and they articulately expressed the necessity to have passion in all of our endeavors. The students were very engaged, and asked a number of pertinent questions. It was a very valuable experience for the students as they plan their topics for the Exhibition, and we would like to thank our special guests for spending time with us.
Here is the link to their song, “Love Matters.”
Global School Play Day
As our parent community would be aware, last week our LIS Primary Section participated in the Global School Play Day . It was a wonderful experience for all participants and an opportunity to see students and teachers engaged in play in so many fascinating and creative ways. Our teachers gained many new insights into their students through their observations and our students developed new friendship connections and enhanced their social and emotional skills. A big thank you to our planning committee Mr Ryan, Ms Annabelle, Ms Amelia, Ms Bronny, Ms Marthe-Sophie, Mr David P and Ms Yana for their planning and preparation for the day.
World Read Aloud Day – ELC Pictures

Home Languages Week
From February 18th – 22nd Luanda International School will be celebrating ‘Home Languages Week. This is a great opportunity to recognise, celebrate and build respect for all languages around the world. We will celebrate across the week in a variety of ways and we would love your help!
Class teachers will soon (if not already) be sending you a link to sign up to come into class and share your language with the students. We encourage you to talk about your language or culture, share maps, stories, games and songs or teach children some words in your home language. Or – share in any way you like, it’s really up to you!
The Performing Arts Teachers are also looking for parents who would be willing to come into their children’s classes and talk about what their music classes were like when they were children, and to teach the students some songs in their native languages. This has been a very valuable experience for the students when this has been done in the past.
A form will be sent home soon so that you can sign up if you’re interested in participating in this experience.
Thanks in advance for your support of this great week of celebrating language diversity within our LIS community.
