Third graders at Magic Years International School were invited to participate in KPIS Inter-School Spelling Bee on Friday, November 13. As their first time participating in an inter-school exchange of this nature, all of our students performed confidently and had fun doing so. Not only was it a great opportunity to associate with students from other international schools, but also a unique experience to take risks, overcome challenges and face adversity.
The 1-to-1 iPad program was successfully launched in our Primary Grades earlier this month. An iPad was provided for each student in Grades 1-3 as a means to equip students with the necessary skills to navigate our ever-changing world. With iPads in their hands, students will learn to investigate and research, create and innovate, communicate, collaborate, organize, and become responsible digital citizens.
Last Friday, we had a fire drill to help students and teachers prepare for emergency situations. Fire drills are scheduled periodically throughout the year, and teachers are informed of fire evacuation procedures beforehand.
Primary Grade students had the opportunity to meet with the co-architects of the new school’s campus. They received the latest information on construction progress, viewed a 3D model, explored a digital 3D rendering, and asked many questions.
Thank you parents for attending our informational session on the “IB PYP Beyond the Early Years” on October 13, 2015. Your turnout helped support our goal of providing our community with unique learning and educational opportunities!
For this event, we invited the Primary School Principal of KIS International School, Ms. June van den Bos, to share her experiences and knowledge of the IB PYP and what learning looks like for students as they move beyond the early years and through a complete IB program.
On Saturday October 10, 2015 our mommy goat Belle gave birth to two cute brown baby goats. A baby goat is also known as “kid”, and other other MYIS kids have already fallen in love with them.
