MIS welcomed students back to Semester Two with virtual online lessons. These continue to 10 January, when we will again welcome students back to campus for limited face-to-face lessons.
MIS has ended Semester 1 and to celebrate this, and the amazing results of MIS Got Talent we have released our end of semester Showcase. Please see the video here.
Today MIS announced the appointment of a new Head of School for August 2022. See the video announcement here.
After 300 days of online lessons, we have welcomed back our Grade 1 through Grade 12 students for face-to-face lessons.
Masks could not hide the smiles of excitement!
Today saw use welcome back our MYP and DP students to campus for their first face-to-face lessons for over 20 months.
Over the past week MIS 'virtually' welcomed a team of visitors from WASC (Western Association of Schools & Colleges), for an accreditation visit; this had been postponed from April 2020. I am pleased to report that the team were extremely impressed with what they saw, especially in the realm of online learning. Indeed one of the visitors noted that after a difficult year of teaching, visiting MIS was "reenergising"; there is no better endorsement. As a result, their report detailed eight commendations and no recommendations.
Well done to the entire MIS community for their collaborative efforts.
As we brought Term 2 to a close and schooling for 2020, we also closed our voting for MIS Got Talent for 2020. Thank you to all those students and staff who demonstrated again that MIS really does have LOADS of talent!
Let us wait and see what 2021 brings!
MIS has released a video to review the year 2019-20. This replaces the yearly parent event where the school reviews the previous year.

On Monday 10 August 2020, MIS started the new school year with a whole school virtual assembly. It was amazing to see so many familiar faces, but also many new ones.
We wish everyone a fantastic start to the new academic year.

Each year at MIS teachers choose to do special math-related activities on March 14th as in the American notation 3.14 (March, 14) is written like the PI numbers. It is also Albert Einstein's birthday. We at MIS chose to support the STEAM subjects. Some classes read the book Sir Cumfrence and the LIfe of Pi, some classes did pi-soduku, some classes wrote Pi-Ku poems, some classes learned how to figure out the ratio on various circles..... It was a great day of eating Pi and learning about math!
Top picture: This year was especially fun because we asked the students to wear their white MIS shirt and we took a PI day photo of the students! Turned out pretty well!
Bottom left picture: Albert Einstein's birthday as well as Pak Iwon's birthday. So we dressed Pak up in a lab coat (He already has the gray hair) and got a PI cake. Iqbal posed for the picture as a Pi-rate and Noer and I (Rachel Wayne) had Pi shirts on. We each celebrated this fun math day in different ways :)
Next two photos: The pi inspired poem written by Justin was his first attempt at ekphrastic poetry. He looked at a piece of art done for Pi day (it is pi to 1000 by artist Nadieh Bremer). Justin was taken by this piece and was able to write about it.
