Assessment in the Primary Years Programme (PYP)

Would you like to learn about ‘what’ and ‘how’ we assess to inform learning and teaching in the programme? Please join us in Room 6A on March 14th for our Parent Coffee Morning (8:15am – 9:35am) on Assessment in the PYP. We will explain the purpose of assessment and explore the four dimensions of assessment in the programme. We hope to see you there!

LIS Parent Choir

The LIS Parent Choir is growing, and we’d love you to be a part. We rehearse every Tuesday from 3-4pm in the upper primary music room (building 4). If you love to sing, or if you are intimidated about singing but want to try, this is the perfect opportunity for you. It is a very informal, relaxed environment, where we just sing for the joy of singing. No musical experience is required. Many adults are afraid to sing, but singing is such a life-affirming and community-building activity, and we’d love you to be involved. No need to sign up…just show up if you’re interested. The parents who are involved now find it a very rewarding experience. We hope to see you soon!

LIS+ the new maths website for parents

Many parents want to help their child in their mathematical development. The new LIS+ website has been especially created to give parents tools and knowledge to provide support in a positive and exciting way. On the website you can explore videos about the latest brain research connected to learning maths, read articles about how you can positively influence your child’s learning, find tasks to practice maths at home and learn the number strategies the students are using at school. Click here to take a look at this great new resource for students and their parents.

ASA Showcase

On the evening of Thursday, February 14, students, parents and staff enjoyed the LIS ASA Showcase in the school theatre. This group enjoyed performances by students from both the Primary and Secondary sections of the school. These performances included a small circus, violin performances, the Mandarin Home Language student performance, the LIS band, a range of different dance performances to name just a few. A big thanks to all involved in their engagement with our ASA programme and to those involved in planning and presenting the ASA Showcase. Please see a few pictures from the ASA Showcase event here.

Work Experience Programme

Each year, Year 11 students at LIS have the opportunity to extend their learning beyond the classroom by exploring a professional environment through our Work Experience Programme. The purpose of this programme is to provide students with a hands-on and realistic view of the world of work and the chance to explore a field connected to their academic or personal interests. Students gain this valuable insight by observing their workplace host(s) in different roles and interacting with employees from various departments and areas of expertise.

The dates for this year’s programme are 21, 22 & 23 May (Tuesday-Thursday).

If your company would be interested in hosting a small group of LIS students on these three days – or if you would like additional information – please contact me via email at your earliest convenience (krosenfield@lisluanda.com).

Thank you for your consideration and support.

Kristen Rosenfield
Secondary Counselor
