義大焦點 IN FOCUS Week 18

01Global Exploration Trips Week is coming GET READY!!!

It was wonderful today to a be speaking to Grade 6 - 11 students about our upcoming Global Exploration Trips (GET Week) which will take place in March 2023. We are so excited to be able to once again, take learning outdoors. This year we will be staying in Taiwan and providing some excellent educational adventure learning experiences for our students. Next year, hopefully we will once again travel overseas as we continue to build our excellent GET Week programme.


02Happy New Year’s From the I-Shou International Preschool (ISIP)

This sure has been an exciting time of year for the students at the ISIP. We would like to once again thank all the ISIP parents for your support in making this a special Christmas and New Year’s season for our students. With Spirit Week and the Winter Concert behind us, we now look ahead to the coming of the New Year, and other exciting events that will be taking place in the coming weeks.

Chinese New Year decorations have already begun coming up as we start preparations for the Chinese Culture Day Festival on January 18th. Our K1 class will be performing during this event and we are certain it will be a great show! In the meantime our students and teachers are busy preparing to make this a meaningful and memorable week.

From everyone at the ISIP we wish everyone a Happy New Year’s vacation this weekend and wish you all the best for the year ahead. Happy 2023!


03Introduction to the Primary Years Programme Exhibition (PYP Exhibition)

ISD Grade 8 students completed a jigsaw activity in Design Class with Teacher Taryn. They researched, prepared presentations, and taught each other about coding block functions.




04An Intensive but Fabulous Week in the Secondary Bilingual Department

This week, as usual, was an intensive, but fabulous week in the Secondary Bilingual Department.

Our grade 9 students had their first mock exam for the grade 9 comprehensive exam. All the participating students were focused and tried their best. After the mock exam, our teachers immediately reviewed the test to assist students toward better performance the next time.

Also at the same time, our grade 12 seniors have approached their final countdown for the General Scholastic Ability Test (GSAT). Everyone studied hard and prepared for the last term exam this semester.

Our grade 10 and 11 students were guided by our Maker Specialist Zoe and learned how to do 3D printing in their English classes. Students not only picked up the language skills but also acquired knowledge of 3D printing.


05One of the Major Components of the IBDP in Chinese

The 12th grade International Secondary Department IB Diploma students have completed their Chinese individual oral examinations!

The Chinese individual oral examination is one of the important components of the IBDP final examination. The examination is conducted through one-on-one recording between the teacher and students. The student is required to talk about global issues for 10 minutes based on the text, followed by a 5-minute question and answer session with the teacher.

Congratulations to the 12th grade students for completing this challenge!
