Principal’s Message Vol.67 – May 2016
Dear IslandCA Community, Savadee, Xinchao, Goededag, 你好!
Next week, from Monday to Thursday, we will have two accreditation visitors at school. They will be coming to collect evidence that IslandCA is ready to be fully accredited in the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The focus for this is on learning. They will spend most of their time in classrooms asking students about their learning, The majority of students are quite comfortable talking to different adults coming into the class and asking questions about their learning. I have enjoyed doing this often over the last year, as have the Deputy and Vice Principal. Learning questions include: What are you learning? Is this difficult for you, easy or just right? Is what you
The accreditation visitors may also talk to you as parents / caregivers if you bring your child(ren) to school in the morning or collect him/her/them in the afternoon. Some things that they will be interested in hearing about from you include:
– What your child is learning and how you support this out of school,
Thank you for all your support in learning about, and being involved in, the IPC. A small group of parents has been selected to have a meeting with the visitors; this group has been chosen to represent (1) length of time their child has been attending IslandCA – ranging from when the school first started to having just joined this year. (2) different year groups their children are in—from year one to year six. Have a great day and weekend!
