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.

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.
