Middle School Opening This Fall

October Newsletters

We have started our first term with the children recognising the one country they all have in common. France was highlighted through songs, food, architecture and composers. The visit of France Miniature gave them a glimpse of the diversity the country has to offer, through historical facts and monuments. The last day of this celebratory period was epitomised with the children fixing their self-drawn portrait on the totem pole. 

Theatre as an after school activity is starting nov 8 from 3.30 to 5pm theater every Friday from preschool plus. The work done there will continue to focus on the production and use it for the christmas show

The next even will be Halloween. All children are encouraged (but not forced) to come dressed up - nothing too scary though. All children are invited to attend the day, even those who do not usually attend on a Thursday. It will be a whole day event.

Christine our French teacher, through her little show made a perfect demonstration of your children's motivation to speak French. If in addition your children sometimes watch little French cartoons at home, at the end of the school year we are sure you will be surprised at how good they will understand and speak when they play with French children.


On the last day of this term, each class presented a small show. Thank you for attending and making the day special to everyone!


Our pedagogic day organised by Ruta on September 27th, offered us some new vision on teaching methods and strategy. Our team will continuously undergo training to better equip themselves with various pedagogical skills to engage pupils in their learning.


Our PA association is fully engaged in this school year with many different activities. Thank you to the new president Moira Segrera and her lovely team for all your hard work! Teacher's day was a beautiful surprise and the FIS team would like to thank you all for the wonderful and beautiful cakes, gifts and flowers :)

Cheryl Farmer has suggested we come up with a competition for a FIS slogan. If anyone has an idea of a slogan/motto which would best reflect who we are as a school, do let a member of the PA know.


Please have a read through each of our classes’ newsletters (click on the pictures below), to find out about what the children have been up to this past half-term :)
