On Thursday we were delighted to host His Serene Highness, Prince Alfred of Liechtenstein on a visit around the Elementary School, where he took in a performance by the Upper Elementary School Chamber Choir, a Year 2 lesson in the Inquiry Centre and a Year 3 Mandarin lesson.
Prince Alfred is a member of the Advisory Board of the International Peace Foundation, an organisation which AIS is partnering with to host the 5th ASEAN event series “Bridges – Dialogues towards a Culture of Peace”, under the common patronage of 21 Nobel Peace Prize Laureates. Starting in September 2014 “Bridges” will be continuously held in Singapore and Thailand until March 2015 and will involve the participation of Nobel Laureates for Peace, Physics, Chemistry, Medicine and Economics.
Towards the end of 2014 and the beginning of 2015, three of these Nobel Laureates will be visiting AIS to share their knowledge with our students, providing a very unique and exciting opportunity for engagement with exceptional experts who are at the very top of their fields. The first visit to AIS is scheduled for November and so we will be brining you more information on that in due course.
