Message from the Principal Term 3 Week 5
Student of the week
As the Grade 10 students head toward their final IGCSE Exams Reiji Arikawa has consistently put in extra effort to improve. He has asked for several past papers in his English class, completed them at home and met with Mr. Crossley during morning and lunch time to receive feedback. On top of this, he keeps busy with Student Council and has a full schedule of athletics as well. He is a role model to his fellow students and exemplary of the holistic excellence found at SSIS.

What do the students say about SSIS?
The grade 12 students were asked to write a reflection of their time here at SSIS. Below is one of the reflections:
The community at SSIS is warm and friendly. There is a ‘closeness’ with students and teachers in the school. You know everyone in the Grade, which is quite rare among all the other international schools. SSIS can truly be called a ‘second home’ to the students.
The school provides healthy and special lunches, with organic vegetables and yummy delicacies from all around the world. By Yu Fan
The 2016-2017 academic year is positioned for ‘the best year ever’ for SSIS Senior School. There is an expectation and excitement from teachers and students with so much in store.
Don’t forget to re-register your child now with the following link for the 2016/17.
Have a wonderful three day weekend.
