Annual Primary Awards

The four Primary Awards are based on the philosophy and expectations of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IBPYP) offered at ISL.

The  citations and recipients of the awards this year are listed below:
PYP Learner Profile Award- This award is given to a student whose attitude embodies the collective attributes of the IB Learner Profile. He/she exhibits these attributes in class as well as during extracurricular activities and in doing so is an example to others and an ambassador for the School.
The recipient of the award for this year 2019-2020 is Abby Mosho.

Internationalism- This award is given to a student who embodies the spirit of internationalism at our school. Through his/her actions, this student co-operates with those around him/her regardless of nationality. He /she is interested in and celebrates the differences between himself/ herself and fellow students and looks for commonalities between nationalities to foster a shared guardianship of the planet and to nurture a peaceful and better world.
The recipient of the award for this year 2019-2020 is Nadeerah Patel.

Action- This award is for a student who regularly exhibits initiative and who has shown action in changing his/her community for the better. Through his/her action the world has benefitted. Importantly, the decision to act and the act itself were not mandates form a teacher, parent, or colleague but were conscious and independent decisions made on the part of the student.
The recipient of the award for this year 2019-2020 is Manon Terra.

 Team Builder/ Collaboration- This award is given to a student who lives their school life with a philosophy of being part of an interdependent team instead of an individual worker. This student readily encourages and offers support to peers whilst setting an example both in quality and effort of work.

CONGRATULATIONS to all the recipients of the awards. We wish you well and encourage you to keep up the good work:)

COVID working group

As we move toward the holiday, our focus will switch from supporting our students through distance learning to prepareing to reopen our campus safely.

Board ratifies fee discounts

Our board met last week; among the items considered was feedback from parents on the discounts announced last month. This ranged from those who thought that no discount should be given to those who thought that the discounts were insufficient. The board has to balance the need to provide relief to parents in the time of trial against its responsibility to safeguard the future of the school.

School calendar next year

At last weeks' meeting, our board decided that we will adhere to next year's calendar. On any given school day on the calendar for next year if our campus is open we will run in-person classes and otherwise we will run distance learning.
