WASC Accreditation Visit

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.

Virtual Graduation
This is a week of firsts: we have reached the end of nine weeks of home-learning, with just two days remaining; we have also reached the end of what would have been the IB Diploma examinations for our DP2s.
 
Today would have been the last examination for Angeline and Mayvelynn (Chemistry Paper 3). As you know the IB cancelled all examinations and they will be awarded their IB Diplomas according to internal assessments and predicted grades.
 
As a community we would like to celebrate the success of the second cohort of graduates from MIS. Our staff and students have recorded messages for our graduates, which we share below. I am sure you all join us in congratulating Angeline and Mayvelynn on their great achievements. Our graduates have also recorded messages of advice for our students and the whole community; at a time of uncertainty they are a shining light of hope and of the future of the world.

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.

GIN Saigon 2019
The Global Issues Network team has spent the year fundraising to help out local refugees in Medan. Students have also visited the residence of the refugees several times this year to teach English and Math lessons, as well as play games with the children.
Each year the GIN team attends an international conference to participate in workshops and share their local initiatives with students from other countries. This year, the venue was in Saigon, Vietnam. The 3-day conference was a great opportunity for students to come together and discuss, debate and create project-based sustainable solutions about the global issues that they are passionate about. This year's conference theme was "Catalyst for Change" and had students share ideas on how to address such issues as environmental degradation, education for all, and wealth disparity.
There were also a number of key speakers that included professionals in the field of animal conservation, public health, and environmental initiatives.
