Making Learning Visible in ELC


A great big thanks to all who attended the 2017-18 Making Learning Visible Exhibit in the ELC, ‘between symbolic languages and writing’. What an incredible night in celebration of childhood. In the words of an attendee, “It was beautiful. The lighting, ambience, artefacts, documentation, and the stories put together. It’s worth celebrating”!

Silent Auction

For the second year in a row, Art pieces have been produced to use in a Silent Auction. This year the Artwork was from students in years 4,5,6,7 and 10 and the proceeds will be going to the Kambamba School Fundraiser and The Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project.  The opening event on Monday 07 May was enjoyed by many families and you are all encouraged to view the wonderful Art auction pieces on the upper floor in B7.  The auction will close on Friday 11 May.

Transition Coffee Morning

Dear Families,

“Your life is a story of Transition. You are always leaving one chapter behind while moving on to the next.”

When families are in transition, each member responds to the changes in different ways. In this coffee morning, we will engage in a creative hands-on activity that provides an opportunity to explore the process of transition.

This workshop is for parents of all students leaving LIS at the end of this academic year. Please RSVP here, as spaces will be limited. We will open up a second session if necessary but we do need to have accurate numbers to support all of our families.

It will be held on Friday 18th May from 8:15am to 9:30am in the Secondary Library (upstairs). We will have a Portuguese translator.

See you there,
LIS Counselling Team


Caras Famílias,

“A vida é uma história de Transição. É preciso acabar um capítulo antes de passar ao próximo”.

Quando as famílias estão em situação de transição, cada um dos seus membros reage às mudanças de forma diferente. Neste Café da Manhã vamos dedicar-nos a uma actividade prática e criativa que permite explorar melhor o processo de transição.

Este workshop destina-se aos pais dos alunos que vão deixar a LIS no fim deste ano lectivo. Agradecemos que confirmem a vossa presença através do link aqui, visto que o número de lugares é limitado. Caso seja necessário, organizaremos uma segunda sessão, mas precisamos de saber o número exacto de participantes de forma a poder atender todas as famílias.

Esta sessão vai realizar-se na Sexta-feira, 18 de Maio, das 8:15 às 9:30 biblioteca da escola secundaria (1ro andar da biblioteca central). Estará presente um intérprete de Português.

Contamos com a vossa participação,

Equipa de Aconselhamento da LIS

Silent Art Auction

Dear families,

You are invited to the opening evening event of the Silent Art Auction on Monday, May 7 from 6:00-7:30pm on the upper floor of building 7 (see poster attached). Students from years 4, 5, 6, 7 and 10 are excited to show off the collaborative artwork they have created for the auction as well as the artwork they have completed this year in visual arts class.

After researching and discussing, students have decided to donate the proceeds of the auction to the Kambamba School Fundraiser and the Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project:

  • Kambamba School Fundraiser: Two secondary students, Anna Lynn Thornsberry and Yasmin Andrade, are raising money to help build a new school for children in need.
  • Chimpanzee Rehabilitation Project: This project aims to rescue chimpanzees being held in captivity. The project provides immediate care for the chimpanzees as w organizes and funds the transportation and integration of the chimpanzees into rehabilitation sanctuaries in neighbouring countries.

Bidding instructions: Beginning on the opening evening of the auction, you will be able to bid on the artwork of your choice by filling out a piece of paper indicating your bid amount. You will place the paper into a box with the corresponding artwork’s picture on it. The winner of each artwork is the person who bids the highest. Only the winner will pay.

The artwork will continue to be on display from May 7-11 in B7, where you will be able to place your bids until Thursday, May 11 at 3pm. The winner of each canvas will be contacted on Monday, May 14 via email with instructions on how to pay and how to collect the artwork.

Earth Day

Earth Day was an amazing whole school event celebrated on Friday 20 April. The awareness and understanding of how we are all part of the harmony of nature and how we can make a difference in protecting our earth was clearly evident from our Prep students to our secondary high school students. The awesome video below was created by Grace a Year 11 student and shows some of the learning engagements that took place during the day. As a result of this day our school took action.

Family Reading Night – April 18, 2018: Family Reading Night, Wednesday, April 18

A celebration of super readers – Family Reading Night, Wednesday 18 April

The Library was filled with super readers enjoying fantastic stories read to them by our super teachers. After listening to the different stories, the super children then borrowed books from the Primary Library.

Not only did we have a great time during Family Reading Night, but thanks to our generous super families, we collected quite a few donations for the children from Casa das Criancas.

Celebrar os super leitores: Noite de Leitura em Família, Quarta-feira, 18 de Abril
A Biblioteca encheu-se de super leitores encantados com as fantásticas histórias contadas pelos super professores da LIS. Depois de ouvirem várias histórias, as super crianças tiveram oportunidade de escolher livros da biblioteca da Primária para levar para casa.
A Noite de Leitura em Família foi não só super divertida, mas também, graças às nossas generosas super famílias, bastante proveitosa, pois recebemos muitos donativos que serão entregues à Casa das Crianças.
