It was a pleasure to welcome our faculty back on the 7th of August and to see the return of our students on the 14th. Laughter and chatter filled the air as learners from 32 nationalities returned, adding seven more than last year, enriching our school’s diversity; the vibrant energy in classrooms and hallways showcasing our community’s richness.
Amid celebrations, we united to honour the 77th Indian Independence Day, fostering unity among staff, students, and families. Patriotism blended with diverse backgrounds, highlighting our collective strength.
This month, our inaugural PTA Annual General Meeting united the school and our families, setting the stage for a shared vision. The Leadership Coffee session deepened connections by revealing educational approaches, reinforcing our commitment to home-school partnerships, and sharing our goals for this academic year. In line with the third pillar of our mission statement, “Celebrate Diversity,” we are determined to ensure that our DEI statement is embodied by all our constituents and that everyone in the MIS community feels a sense of belonging. We are excited to launch into a new strategic conversation to ensure that we maintain our status of flagship international school both locally and around the world.
Reflecting on these milestones, gratitude fills us. Diverse nationalities, Independence Day’s spirit, and our parent community’s collaboration propel us forward into limitless learning and possibilities.
Primary School –
Parents have been joining us for “Back-to-School” sessions in the primary school. A meeting which helps build strong home-school relationships at the start of the year, we hosted parents and students in the classroom together to further understand the routines and expectations of the class as well as build relationships with each other.
After nominations, speech writing and voting, we are proud to announce our Primary Learning Leaders (PLL). The PLL consists of one class representative from P3-P5 and house captains for each of the 4 MIS houses – Jal, Prithvi, Agni and Vayu. With a commitment to meet twice a week, the PLL works together to bring initiatives to the primary, representing their peers in an empowered forum.
Secondary School –
We were so delighted to welcome our new and returning students this academic year. The year kicked-off with an assembly which emphasized on the importance of belongingness, community life, and building relationships. For their orientation week, MYP5 to DP2 learners went off campus from 17 to 19 August for their trips, incorporating key areas related to their MYP and DP core components.
It wasn’t only students that we welcomed back to campus. On 25 August, we are thrilled to have hosted our MYP1 to DP1 families for Meet the Teacher. Parents could go around campus with their children and attend classes. Both parents and learners had various ways of engaging with teachers and learning more about their subjects as well as the MYP and DP.
