PEACE DAY

On Friday, 22 September we will be celebrating Peace Day here at LIS. The morning will begin with an assembly and continue with a variety of Peace Day centered workshops throughout the day. The day will end with a Peace parade. Here’s where we need your help! The parade will begin around 2 pm. The children will “walk for peace” around the campus on a predetermined route and then finish back in the school cafeteria area for a final assembly at approximately 2:20pm. We would like to see the parents there cheering the children on as they come inside. We will then listen as our guest speaker, U.N. Resident Coordinator Paolo Balladelli, has some final words for us, share a song or two, and reflect on our day of peace.

Students are encouraged to wear something they feel represents peace and who they are.

Hope to see you all there.

Queridos pais,

Na sexta-feira, 22 de setembro, estaremos celebrando o Dia da Paz aqui no LIS. A manhã começará com uma reunião e continuará com uma variedade de workshops centrados no Dia da Paz ao longo do dia. O dia terminará com um desfile da paz. Aqui é onde precisamos de sua ajuda! O desfile começa por volta das 2 da noite. As crianças vão “caminhar pela paz” ao redor do campus em uma rota predeterminada e depois terminar na área da cafeteria da escola para uma montagem final em aproximadamente 2:20 da tarde. Gostaríamos de ver os pais ali torcendo as crianças enquanto elas entram. Em seguida, iremos ouvir como nosso orador convidado, Coordenador residente da U.N. Paolo Balladelli, com algumas palavras finais para nós, compartilhar uma ou duas canções e refletir sobre o nosso dia de paz.

Os alunos são encorajados a usar algo que eles sentem representa paz e quem são.

Espero ver todos vocês lá.

Annual Jogathon

The Jogathon is a charity event tradition at LIS. For the first time, a small group of Secondary students have organized the event entirely. Our goal is to make a difference for the Orphanage Casa das Crianças. All proceeds directly fund the facilities at the orphanage and improve the welfare of the children there.

The Jogathon has been a very successful community event in the past. We hope to see lots of families supporting this cause. Join us this Saturday September 9, from 9:00 – 11:00 AM by the basketball court. The Jogathon Team will welcome you and direct you.

Welcome to the LIS Library

Welcome! We hope you’ll visit us in the LIS Library. We’re looking forward to another fabulous year.

It’s been lovely to see lots of familiar faces and to welcome new students. We love hearing about the books that everyone has read over the holidays. The holidays are an opportunity to find out the titles of new books that everyone is talking about. We always love ideas for great reads so if you have a title that we should consider adding to the library, then please complete the Suggestion for the Collection form.

We have a lovely team of regular volunteers who help us make the library special. Our volunteers help us in a number of ways including creating incredible displays and organising the collection. If you’d like to volunteer, then please sign up HERE. We’ll be in touch.

We’d like everyone to become frequent library visitors. Children 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.

Thank you for teaching your child about taking care of the library books. Water is the most common way that books are damaged. Please remind your child to keep the books in a safe, dry place. Also, when transporting library books to and from school, make sure that they are kept well away from water bottles, wet swimwear and lunch boxes.

Once Primary children begin borrowing, books, parents will receive periodic emails listing the items checked out to your child and when they are due back. Please note that the due date follows the month/date/year format.

We’re looking forward to seeing you at the Library. Please drop in to say hello to me (Ms Anton), Mr Tito and Mr Manuel and also meet our new team members Mr Dembo, Ms Jacinta and Ms Yana.

Beginning the year

Our new school year is now well started with students being very involved with establishing learning agreements, asking questions using the inquiry model, considering concepts and making connections with the learner profile.
