FOLSCO Fundraiser

Dear Parents,

While we are fortunate enough to end the year with our loved ones, indulging in nice food, and exchanging gifts, there are children who never get a chance to experience any of this. Children who are parentless, homeless, and vulnerable living on the streets of Luanda.

FOLSCO- Friends of Luanda’s Street Children, is a charity community with the aim to help vulnerable homeless children and orphans in Luanda. Their mission is to raise awareness about street children, connect shelters to companies for funds and financially support the existing shelters through collection of donations and fundraising events. If you would like to find more information about FOLSCO here is the website, http://folsco.org/ .

Last year, LIS students from Yr1 and Yr2 helped FOLSCO to prepare 200 parcels to give out to the homeless street children during their End of the Year Party. We would like to repeat this charitable event this year but expand the fundraiser to include year 3-6 as well. Hopefully we will be able to reach out further and include Shelters and Orphanages who have opened their doors to these children.

We are kindly asking parents and families to donate toothpastes, toothbrushes, soap bars, crayons (pack of 10), and drawing pads and bring them to school from Nov 27- Dec 8. If you are able to also bring plastic or paper ‘gift bags’ that would be very appreciated. Your child’s homeroom teacher will collect the items in the classroom.

The Year 3 students will be helping to make parcels with the above donated items during the week Dec 11-15. They will use their own initiatives to decorate the parcels and perhaps make cards as well.

We appreciate your contributions and so will these well deserving children.

Kind Regards,

Primary Team

 

Este ano, não se esqueça das crianças mais necessitadas de Luanda

Caros Pais,

Enquanto muitos têm a sorte de passar o fim do ano com aqueles de quem mais gostam, desfrutando de boa comida e trocando presentes, há crianças que nem sequer sabem o que isso significa. Crianças que crescem sem pais, sem casa, e vivem vulneráveis pelas ruas de Luanda.

A comunidade FOLSCO (Amigos das Crianças de Rua de Luanda) tem como missão ajudar as crianças e órfãos que vivem desamparados nas ruas de Luanda. O objectivo da FOLSCO é sensibilizar o público para as condições destas crianças, colocar os abrigos e lares em contacto com empresas que possam contribuir e apoiar com fundos as instituições que já proporcionam alguma ajuda, promovendo recolhas de donativos e eventos de angariação de fundos. Para saber mais acerca da missão e objectivos da FOLSCO, por favor visite o site http://folsco.org/.

O ano passado, os alunos da LIS dos Anos 1 e 2 ajudaram a FOLSCO a preparar 200 embrulhos para distribuir às crianças de rua durante a Festa de Fim de Ano. Este ano, gostaríamos de repetir esta iniciativa solidária, e ir ainda mais longe, incluindo também os alunos dos Anos 3 a 6. Esperamos assim conseguir chegar a mais Abrigos e Orfanatos que dependem da nossa ajuda para acolher estas crianças que tanto precisam.

Por isso estamos a pedir aos pais e às famílias para fazer um donativo de escovas e pastas de dentes, sabonetes, lápis de cor (caixas de 10) e cadernos de desenho, e entregar estes artigos na escola a partir do dia 27 de Novembro até 8 de Dezembro. Se puderem também incluir um saco de papel ou plástico que sirva de embrulho, ficamos muito agradecidos. Os professores de homeroom ficarão encarregues de recolher todos os artigos doados nas suas respectivas salas.

Durante a semana de 11 a 15 de Dezembro, os alunos da Primária Y3 terão oportunidade de ajudar a fazer os embrulhos com os artigos angariados, decorar os sacos como melhor entenderem e talvez incluir também um cartão com uma mensagem.

Agradecemos desde já a vossa colaboração e apoio, e sabemos que as crianças também ficarão gratas.

Com os melhores cumprimentos,

A Equipa da Primária

Just a reminder on behalf of Ms. Betsy…

Dear Y1 Parents,

In music class we are beginning to inquire into how we can create instruments

using recycled materials.

We need your help!

Please bring to school any materials that can be used to create an instrument.

Please clean anything before you send it to school.

We will create the instruments together in Music class, but if your child

feels inspired to experiment at home, by all means, don’t stop them.

Examples of good materials to send to school are:

Plastic Bottles

Bottle Caps

Paper or Plastic Tubes

Boxes

Metal Cans

Plastic Bags

Cardboard

Buttons

Nails

Beads

Etc.

Please encourage your children to tap, shake and scrape their way through

your recyclables to find some suitable things to bring for Music class.

Thank you for your help!

Best Regards,

Betsy Stalter

PYP Music Teacher

Welcome to Year 1.1

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Year 1.1, my name is Georgina Angélica and I will be your child’s teacher for this academic year. This is my sixth year at Luanda International School. Previously, I taught in Portugal and England. I’m originally from Portugal, but I have been teaching abroad for ten years now. To assist me is Ms. Marlene Satuta who has been working at Luanda International School for six years as well. Previously, she worked at our school Early Learning Center before moving to Year 1.  We look forward to getting to know both you and your children. 

This year our main means of communication to parents about learning in Year 1 will be through our class blog. On this blog, I will be sharing information about the students’ learning engagements, the curriculum, photos and some recommendations about how you, as parents, can assist your child’s learning.  I not only recommend that you check the blog regularly, but I also advise you to subscribe to our blog so that you can receive a weekly email with links to the newest postings. We hope you will enjoy seeing many of the exciting things we will be getting up to this year and take the time to discuss the blog posts with your child.

Students have their own Home Folder which is used for parent-teacher communication and Home Reading. Please bring the folder to school every day.

Please ensure that each day your child has a labelled bottle of water and a hat.

Swimming: Include a swimsuit, towel and flip flops in a separate bag. Students are required to independently change themselves after swim class, and we appreciate your support on this initiative at home.

PE: Students should come to school in appropriate shoes for running and other activities. If your child cannot tie their own shoelaces, please ensure they have shoes without laces (e.g. Velcro).

Library: Parents need to supply library bags for books (big enough to accommodate large books).

If you have any questions, please don’t hesitate to contact me.

 

Kind regards,

Georgina
