Arusha Campus Newsletter 25th April 2019

Dear Parents

This moring we had one of the best talks that we have ever had at Arusha Campus when Alexis Cronin, Director of Dunia Designs, spoke to the whole school about the issues of plastic recycling. There were loads of questions from the fascinated students and the highlight of course was to watch Alexis’ recycled plastic machine come to life! Look out for this Campus’ efforts to become a single-use plastic free school in the future. 

We are on holiday YET again, so enjoy the Friday Union Day holiday and we will see you back in School n Monday 29th April.


From the Primary and Secondary Schools

A fun packed, if short, three day week.

P3 went on their camp to Ngare Sero in Usa River on Wednesday and Thursday; all had a great time. Many thanks to Miss Marja, Miss Rosemary, Mr Samwel and Jochem Botman.

P6 are getting closer to completing their PYP Exhibition work, with events and competitions. Thursday saw Maja hold her fun games afternoon, with the highlight being ‘throw the wet sponge at the teacher’ – Mr Phil seemed to really enjoy this! Well done to all who took part and to the P6s in general.

Next week we will be issuing the MAP results to P4 through M3 parents. Overall the students performed extremely well across all grade levels. These tests will be repeated again next year in October and April.

I hope you all enjoy the three-day weekend and please remember that Wednesday 1 May is a national holiday.


Meet the New Teachers

This is Christy last Halloween. Spoiler alert, She says she’ll probably wear this costume for Halloween again this year!

Hello ISM!

I’m Christy and I’m very excited to join ISM in August.
Some brief information about me:
I’m Canadian, single, no dependents
I currently teach Grade 12 English in Guangzhou, China
I have also taught social studies and various other humanities courses in Canada and Egypt
I love to travel, canoe, golf, read, cook, and I am a bit obsessed with movies
I’ve been to 48 countries so far
I might be a bit stressed out when we meet because I will be finishing off the last two courses of my Master of Education degree. The courses wrap up around August 19th, so it’ll be a busy first month in Tanzania!
I’m not very good at small talk and I’m a bit awkward in social gatherings full of people I don’t know…but I really am very nice and a lot of fun.

Please support our P6 students who are almost ready to present their PYP Exhibition

PYP Exhibition Fun Games Day

All the games at the fun day drew immense interest.

Thank you to all the children, parents and teachers for supporting Maja’s Fun Games Day. It was a fantastic success raising Tsh 600,000 for Step by Step Learning Center. Well done Maja for organizing a fabulous action as part of her P6 Exhibition project.

Haitham’s ‘Find the Treasure’ proved to be one of the most popular games.

UWC Short-Course

ISM is excited to host the second edition of the Umoja UWC short course in Tanzania. The course will bring together 24 young individuals from all around the world under the theme “Coming Together to Build Community”.
