And Their Last PYP Artwork Is Done…

Easy Blog Photo
After a busy year full of creating and reflecting, 5KS artists managed to produce one last artwork and this time they got to choose the art form that allowed them to convey who they are and/or what they are interested in.

Congratulations on producing meaningful artwork this year. May you keep creating and live out all your dreams in the years to come!

Well Done 5GK Artists!

The installation artworks came to life and have been enjoyed by the SSIS community for several weeks now. Well done Grade 5 – it was a great team effort completing 3 installation artworks!

Happy summer and best wishes for secondary schooling.

Swimming Open Week

Hi Everybody,

Recently you would have received an invitation to our ‘Swimming Open Week’

This invitation outlines some of the health and safety guidelines for you. Please let your homeroom teacher know if you have not received this.

Attached to this Blog post are the SSIS swimming levels for Grades 1-5. We encourage you to talk to your child about where they think they are predominantly working within and where they see their next steps/goals as being. We have been designing our lessons to create as much agency from the students as possible and there fore they are able to discuss these types of things.

The swimming sessions at SSIS are very busy and there is lots of action going on, when you come to the open week you will see students being directed and guided within stroke techniques, experiencing water safety/rescue practices, and also having a self directed reflection time whereby they work on their personal goals/next steps.

Mr Murray will be available for every session of open week in the upstairs viewing area to answer questions and talk you through the many facets of the SSIS swim programme. We look forward to seeing you there.


Ms Karen, Mr Brownrigg, Mr Murray
