Dear Parents,

As was mentioned in the Newsletter earlier this term students in Years 6 – 9 and Year 11 will have their full written reports posted to their home on Friday of next week – 20/06/2014.  By posting the reports the teachers have been able to include an additional week of teaching before the final examinations for the semester.  If any students do not receive their report they should contact the Secondary Secretary – secondary_secretary@ais.com.sg.

I cannot think of a better way to end a term than with the annual ICE Festival – “the coolest day of the year!”  The students really got into the spirit of the day by dressing in a myriad of national dresses.  Moreover, they engaged fully with the workshops on offer that allowed them all to experience a taste of different cultures.  A huge vote of thanks must be extended to the School Captaincy Team, Mr Michael Farrell, Ms Kirsten Murphy, Mr Paul Carney and Ms Ailsa Morrison.  The efforts of this brilliant team made the day possible.
To all in our community I wish you a safe holiday.  Enjoy the break – you have all earned it!  Travel safely where ever you may be heading.  See you back in Term 3.
Yours Faithfully,

Andre Casson
Head of Secondary School

Year 6/7 PMC/EAL Singapore Zoo Excursion

This term Year 6 and 7 PMC have been studying classification in Science and report writing in English lessons. They researched information about many animals such as their diet, habitat and class. Last Tuesday we ventured out to Singapore Zoo. What better way to reinforce their learning than to visit the animals face-to-face? The students went around in groups collecting information and filming the animals in order to create an iMovie documentary. Year 6 EAL have been learning about advertising and persuasive language and they came along to the Zoo to gather photos and ideas to create their very own advertisements for Singapore. They took wonderful photos of the shows, animals and facilities to use in their project.

The excursion was a valuable language learning experience for the students and they will further develop their communication skills when they share their creations in class. Many thanks to Ms Vannavong for organising this excursion and accompanying the students on this valuable learning experience.
