Vol 2, issue 17, 17th January 2020 

From the Head of School 
In Year 2, students have been inquiring into types of celebrations, reasons to celebrate and similarities and difference of celebrations around the world. From Diwali to Day of the Dead, Christmas to Chinese New Year, there are many celebrations to investigate around the Central Idea that celebrations Celebrations help us express our beliefs, values and culture. In addition to becoming more knowledgeable about celebrations around the world, this Unit of Inquiry encourages our students to make connections, to be open-minded and to develop intercultural understanding and respect for others. There are some of the key values of the IB Primary Years Programme, and of Think International School. 
Our next week at TIS will be a week of celebrations, to which parents are invited. In addition to our whole school celebration of Chinese New Year on Thursday, there are also class celebrations of learning. These celebrations are a chance for students to showcase and demonstrate their leaning. Our students have been working hard to prepare for both celebrations and we hope you are able to attend and enjoy!

Floorball Match Report 
The floorball season kicked off this week with both TIS teams in action against Kingston International School. This was a great opportunity for our students to gain experience playing at a competitive level and discover their strengths and areas to work on as a team. We saw some great displays of teamwork, resilience and determination and wish both teams all the success during this season. Good luck.
