The ISS PTA would like to remind you of our upcoming Fun Fair, this Sunday 26 February.
There will be FUN for all ages with a wide range of shopping and activities. Come down and see our popular BOOK STALL, stocked with various genres and in several languages – something for all ages. Pop over to our TOY STALL where you are sure to find something. There will be MUSIC a CAR WASH, henna art, jewelry, clothing, handmade products and much, much more!
Don’t know what to do with your kids? Bring them along for hours of fun. Balloon sculptures, bouncy castle, DUNK TANK (remember those swimsuits). Guessing games, tossing and shooting skill games – something for everyone.
Both entry points, car park and the pedestrian gate near the bus stop, will be open. Please remember to wear your ISS ID TAG. You will be issued with a wristband should you have forgotten your tag.

Our Grade 5 students have begun their Exhibition journey. The students co-constructed their Central Idea for this year, ‘Our actions change the future’. Three G5 students will lead the Exhibition Parent Meeting on March 2nd, at 8am in the ES MPR. We look forward to following their journey and attending the Exhibition in April.

Middle School News
Greetings and welcome to the week that was and what’s coming up in Middle School (MS). Yes, we are all about the Fun Fair on Sunday, here on Paterson Campus. Great to see the Parents and Teachers Association (PTA) and students and staff all contributing towards what is going to be a wonderful day. In preparation for this Sunday, each grade is putting together a stall. Grade 6 will have a chocolate fondue, Grade 7 is providing a throwing game with a difference, Grade 8 will be running a car wash (whereby for $15 your car gets washed and you get a parking space!) and of course the Middle School production ‘Into the woods’ will be performing at 12 midday. As well as every student’s dream is always to ‘dunk’ the teachers and Mr Taylor will be in the dunking tank hot seat during the afternoon. Come along and try your luck!
During the week the Grade 6 students, as part of MYP Design, took to the air with the kites they had built. Mrs Tan, Ballinger and Ms Shelley took all students to Marina Barrage to test out their finest designs. Some flew, some will need a design review, but all reflected the organisation and research that went into the unit. Well done Grade 6.
Next week, on Tuesday from 08:00 in the MS Hall Mrs Fang Shelly will be conducting an MYP coffee morning on Approaches To Learning (ATL) in the MYP and how these tie into assessment. Please join us from 8AM -9AM for what is going a be a very informative morning.
Looking forward to seeing everyone on Sunday!
