The Student Council held a hot/cold chocolat sale from the 7th to the 10th of September. The main purpose of this sale was to give students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with the current Student Council as well as to raise funds for the next upcoming events. The sale was a great success and students seemed to thoroughly enjoy the hot and cold chocolate beverages as well as the additional toppings.

We have recently been contacted by an ISL Alumna, Akanksha Mittal, with regard to an organization called Society of Women Coders (SOWCoders), where they go to different countries and host coding camps for about a week long to teach girls (ages 14-19) how to code, empowering them with a valuable skill.

I am happy to announce that we will resume after school activities this school year. After school activities are an important part of the school experience for our students; we need to put back into school life some of the joy that was depleted by the coronavirus response.
I am happy to let all of you know that we will be resuming field trips this school year and that this will be done at no additional cost to parents. Field trips are a vital part of the school experience for our students; we are committed to conducting them in a safe and engaging manner for as many students as possible.

On Friday, 3rd September, Year 13 students welcomed our new cohort of Year 12's into the IBDP Programme. It was a fun afternoon of Pizza, cup cakes, drinks followed by collaborative games by the pool side. It was great to see the Year 12 students work as a team in the tower building exercise. Students played pop the balloon, answering questions targeted on IB attributes. The run on the pool mats was truly fun to watch. Overall, the afternoon was fun and we wish our Year 12's a successful journey in the IBDP. The school and our fantastic team of teachers and counselors will ensure students are well supported to be successful in the Programme.

Looking back on IB1, it was a rollercoaster of emotions, with many ups and downs, as well as the bit where you become a little physically nauseated, yep, that too! But I can certainly say that I am not the same person coming off the ride as I was when I originally stepped onto it. Of course, there have been numerous hurdles, the most notable of which being the Covid-19 Pandemic, which brought the world to its knees and drove us all into isolation and online-schooling. Which I would say was a new experience for both teachers and students, and it has truly been a one-of-a-kind journey.

Year 13 students held a “trial by literature” of the character Meursault, from The Stranger by Albert Camus. Prosecution and Defence teams argued their cases and called witnesses; playing characters from the novel. Judge Xiao presided over proceedings in the insaka. Here, we also see Munita called to the witness stand as Salamano, Meursault’s neighbour.

The word counselor can mean many different things, depending on where you are in the world. Indeed, even the spelling of the word (counselor vs counsellor...and there's even councilor) differs between countries.
At ISL we have two types of counselors;
