義大焦點 IN FOCUS WEEK 16

01A Surprise Visit From Last Year’s Grade 12 Boys!

It was wonderful to get a surprise visit this week from some of the boys from last year’s graduating class. They visited my office for coffee and to say thank you for preparing them for university studies.

Together, we reflected on their I-Shou experience and although they are currently living and studying on three different continents, they still very much consider I-Shou International School as “Home”.

It was great to see these I-Shou alumni and learn that they are all doing so well!


02The ISIP Egg Drop Competition

Last Friday, preschoolers at the ISIP embarked on a thrilling science adventure during their much-anticipated Egg Drop experiment. This hands-on activity, aimed at fostering creativity and critical thinking. Each child was tasked with designing and constructing a contraption that would protect an egg from breaking when dropped from the 3rd floor of the ISIP building. Armed with imagination and a variety of materials such as cotton balls, straws, and bubble wrap, the children set out to create their egg-saving devices.

Excitement filled the air as the preschoolers gathered in the designated drop zone, anxiously waiting for their turn to put their creations to the test. With a mix of nerves and excitement, they watched as the teacher dropped their eggs.

Laughter erupted as some eggs soared gracefully through the air, while others tumbled and twisted in mid-air. The suspense peaked as the eggs made contact with the ground, and their eggs were inspected.

Out of the 29 eggs that were dropped, sadly only 6 eggs did not break. Students were awarded certificates if their eggs did not break and on Monday, Kitchen Mom prepared some egg fried rice made from the surviving eggs!


03Primary Department Grade 5 PYP Exhibition!

Members of the Junior and High School Student Councils came together to facilitate the first IIS Carnival and Prom, the culmination of months of hard work.

Grade 9 to 12 students delivered an excellent outdoor, after-school carnival that was fun for all ages, encouraging fellowship among the entire student body while providing food, games, and even a movie night on the Main Campus lawn.

Grade 6 to 8 students did well to follow the carnival with the 2023 IIS Prom, a night of dancing, performances, and treats that is sure to be remembered by all.

We are proud of these middle and high school students' dedication, professionalism, and creativity, and we look forward to even more exciting Stuco events in the future!


04STUCO Prom

This week, the Primary Department invited parents, mentors and other members of the school community to the 2nd and 3rd floor Learning Commons for the Grade 5 PYP Exhibition!

The exhibition was a culmination of months of hard work, inquiry, and collaboration, and it truly showcased the remarkable growth and achievements of our students.

We are immensely proud of our Grade 5 students and the exceptional effort they put into their PYP Exhibition. The support of the community around them including parents, mentors and homeroom teachers, helped drive their efforts and made each student’s journey a success!

Well done Grade 5!
