Dear QISS Families and Friends,
We are now through the 3rd week of the 2016-2017 academic year. This week we rolled out several academic programs and extra-curricular activities. The first session of the After-School Activity Program (ASAPs) started on Monday. On Friday, the Upper School staff, led by Athletic Director Mr. Krakowski, rolled out the updated school house program. All students were “drafted” into a school house. Throughout the school year, students will be eligible to win prizes and special activities by demonstrating the QISS ESLRs of Vitality, Intelligence, Sensitivity, Courage and Compassion.
Open House Nights
On Tuesday, August 30th and Wednesday, August 31st, QISS staff will open their classrooms for QISS parents. We encourage all parents to come along, meet your child’s teachers, and learn more about the curriculum and academic programs your child will participate in this year.
Parents will all meet in the theatre at 6pm for a welcome presentation, before attending individual presentations in teacher’s classrooms.
Director’s Family Swimming Program
The QISS swimming pool is open and free for all QISS families and guests for the follow several Saturdays. Please join us on Saturday to enjoy the state-of-the-art QISS swimming pool.
Learning Resource Center (LRC)
The QISS Learning Resournce Center (LRC) commences next Monday, August 29th. Going forward, the LRC will be on Tuesdays, Thursdays and Saturdays. To enrol in the LRC program or for any further information, please contact Mr. Rick Tair at firstname.lastname@example.org
Chinese and English Lessons
As part of the LRC program, QISS is proud to offer free English and Chinese lessons to QISS parents and staff members. Please see the flyers below for more information.
The QISS Volleyball team will play their first match of the season against ISQ next week. In the words of Coach Muller, the “Boy’s team is killing it in practice!”. We wish them the best of luck for next week. GO SHARKS!!
