As you read this the excitement will be building for the primary sporting event of the year: the Moshi primary Sports Weekend. Over forty students from P2-P6 will be travelling to Moshi to compete in football and swimming events. We wish them all well and hope for dry weather.
This week has been extremely busy already, with Wednesday kicking off with M1’s ‘Morning at the Museum’. As part of I&S the students had studied ancient civilisations and concluded the unit by creating museum exhibits; inviting parents and staff to admire their work and quiz them on their knowledge. We certainly discovered that we have some budding curators in our midst. Well done M1.
On Wednesday evening we had a celebration of drama and literature at the Kushiriki event (pictiured above). This highlighted not only the acting talents of our amazing M5 drama students, who performed their ePortfolio pieces, but also the writing talents of MYP students. Special mention has to go to Shaheen and Harsh, who performed their award winning (first and third places) ‘poetry slam’ poems. Well done to everyone who took part.
On Friday we celebrated the aquatic achievements of our 6 to 11 year old swimmers, with medals and certificates being handed out at the PYP share time. Again, a huge congratulations to them all.
Last week we successfully completed MAP testing across P4 to P6. Next week comes the turn of M1 to M3; students will take part in maths, language and reading assessments, with M3 also taking science. All the best to you all.
On Tuesday next week ISM Arusha hosts the annual D2 Visual Art and M5 Personal Project Exhibition. This event celebrates the culmination of the two courses and brings the community together to celebrate the creative talents of our students. The event takes place at the Art & Design Pavilion and begins at 18.00. Please come along and celebrate with us.
Next week is also the last week of Quarter Three. On Friday 23 March we will finish the quarter with a whole school assembly at 11.20 and school will end at 12.00. We will also be issuing reports to M1-D2, which will be emailed to parents.
I wish you all a great weekend,
