XLIS Upcoming Events in February

Dear Parents,

Please find a list of all the events currently planned to be held at our school for the month of February 2019. These are split between primary school (ECE and PYP), secondary school (MYP and DP) and whole school events.

Whole School Events

Feb 15th

February Professional Development 

Professional Development sessions are an incredibly important part of the school year, especially at international schools. These ensure that our teachers are familiar with the most up to date and relevant teaching methodologies and techniques. This will ensure that students have the best possible educational experience.

This PD will be delivered by Tania Lattanzio, who is an experienced international educator and was previously a teacher, coordinator and manager with the International Baccalaureate. She is now Regional Director of Innovative Global Education and has co-authored a book called ‘Taking the Complexity out of Concepts.’ 

Tania Lattanzio will also be observing differentiation in our primary and secondary classrooms from 13th – 14th February.

※ Please note that PD days are non-school days, so students are not required to attend school on Friday 15th February.

Feb 18th-19th

ACER International Schools Assessments

These exams will be taken by our PYP4&6,MYP3&4 students.

IB Diploma Mock Exams

These exams will be taken by our DP2 students and gives them an opportunity to practice taking exams that are similar to their IB Diploma exams later in the year. DP2 is a very important year for our students, as it is their last year at high school before they head off to university or other further study. We wish our DP2 students the best of luck!

We look forward to your participation and support!
