Book Fair and Author Visit — Feira do Livro e Visita dos Autores

On Friday 10 November, LIS Library hosted a Pop-up Book Fair and invited three authors and one illustrator to visit the students. These events were held to celebrate Angolan Independence Day.

Year Four, Five and Six students asked the author Fatima Fernandes and illustrator Altino Chandelle insightful questions. Ms Fatima and Mr Altino are the creators of the Regina graphic novel series, based on true stories about Regina, Ms Fatima’s daughter. LIS students also met Regina.

The Year Two and Three Primary children as well as Year Seven, Eight, Ten and Eleven Portuguese students met the authors Kizola Nzambi and Hugo Leao. This husband and wife team have written number of different fiction books, based in Angola. They too answered many thoughtful questions and shared with the LIS students their personal journey on how they became authors.

Students and teachers enjoyed meeting the wonderful visitors and also shopping at the Pop-up Book Fair.

Thank you also to all the members of the school community who visited the Book Fair.

Na sexta-feira, 10 de novembro, a LIS Library tive uma Feira do Livro Pop-up e convidou três autores e um ilustrador para visitar os estudantes. Esses eventos foram realizados para comemorar o Dia da Independência de Angola.

Estudantes do ano quatro, cinco e seis pediram ao autor, Fatima Fernandes e ilustrador Altino Chandelle, perguntas perspicazes. A Sra. Fatima e o Sr. Altino são os criadores da série de novelas gráficas da Regina, com base em histórias verdadeiras sobre Regina, a filha da Sra. Fatima. Os alunos da LIS também se encontraram com Regina.

As crianças da primária dos anos dois e três, bem como os alunos do ano sete, oito, dez e onze de português, conheceram os autores Kizola Nzambi e Hugo Leao. Esta equipe de marido e mulher escreveu um número de livros de ficção que se realizam em Angola. Eles também responderam muitas perguntas e compartilharam com os alunos do LIS sua história pessoal sobre como se tornaram autores.

Estudantes e professores aproveitaram conhecer os visitantes maravilhosos e também fazer compras na Feira do Livro.

Obrigado também a todos os membros da comunidade escolar que visitaram a Feira do Livro.

A celebration of reading : Celebrar a leitura

A celebration of reading

Family Reading Night was held on Wednesday 4 October. Parents and children listened to a range of stories read to them by our wonderful teachers. It was lovely to see the children’s reactions to the stories. The children then had an opportunity to borrow books from the Primary Library.

Not only did we have a great time during Family Reading Night, but thanks to our generous families, we collected quite a few donations of color pencils / markers and writing paper for the children from House of the Children.

Please save the date for our next Family Reading Night. It will be held on Wednesday, 18 April 2018. More information and a sign up for this event will be shared in March 2018.

Earth Day

Earth Day is celebrated so that we reflect on how we can change our behaviour so that we take care of our planet. Some of our actions will make a difference immediately. Other changes take longer to see any improvement.

LIS will be celebrating Earth Day on Friday, the 21st of April, 2017. Everyone will have an opportunity to learn and share ideas about how they make a difference. The day will end with an Earth Day Assembly at 2:15pm in the big gymnasium.

We have different Earth Day displays in the Library and encourage you to visit us so you can tell us all about the action you take.

 

 

 

 

It’s a brand new school year!

It’s been lovely to see students (of all ages) visiting the LIS Library. I’m new this year but I already feel welcome. I’ve been greeted with lots of friendly smiles and some interesting conversations. It’s wonderful to to see so many students excited to talk about books they have read.

We want everyone to visit the library regularly. Students are encouraged to change their books as soon as they have finished reading them. They don’t have to wait until their allotted library time. Parents are encouraged to come in too! If you want your child to be a good reader, then you should show them you read. Have conversations about what you are all reading. Read a book together. Read for leisure.

Please take good care of the library books. Keep them in a safe, dry place. When transporting library books to and from school, make sure that they are kept well away from water bottles, wet swimwear and lunch boxes.

Please note that overdue notices will be sent home soon so we would appreciate the prompt return of any library books that didn’t make their way back to the library before the summer.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Library. Stop in and say hello!
