This week saw the completion of KIS street - a joint project from the Year 2 and Nursery. The older children were partnered with a younger child, and the pairs set to work designing and building their homes for KIS street. This was a great way for our older children to learn how to teach and show others what they know, and the younger kids benefitted from having a pair of helping hands to bring their imagination to life. We're very proud of what they have created, and urge parents to have a look when they are next passing through.

50th Anniversary Celebration
This week we have been preparing the school for our 50th Anniversary Celebration. Our House Captains were fantastic at demonstrating exactly how our pupils should be. This year we buried a time capsule, to be opened in 25 years time. All the kids contributed a small piece of work to be unearthed by the children of the future. We hope the next 25 years will be just as successful as the first 50! Thank you to everyone who contributed. If you wish to see more photos of the event, please follow our social media accounts!

Bienvenue, KIS French Club!
This terms sees the start of the French club, which takes place every Monday, from 4.30 - 6. We would love as many children as possible to sign up. Children can pick up langauges much more easily than adults, so its a great opportunity to give them a passion for languages, which could be invaluable later in life. Please enquire at the office if you are interested!

They will be responsible for setting a good example for every other student in the school, as well as letting their teachers know how we can improve the school.

Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies
Today we had the pleasure of being visited by the lovely actors at Forum Theatre and Education, who put on an exciting performance of Beetles, Bugs and Butterflies. We saw some creative costumes, impressive props and we were told some fun stories that had all the children laughing!
Today we got all the children reading, through our annual book fair. The kids came in with 10 euros each so they could choose whichever books they wanted, and after that the parents came to have a look around as well. We believe that reading is vital for developing a child's learning, so we were very glad to seeing everyone so excited about their new books!
Dragons Trip to Centro de día Juan Pablo II
Today, Dragons class had the opportunity to visit Centro de día Juan Pablo II, and meet some of the residents who live there.

The children were very pleased with their gifts and had a great time getting to know our neighbours.
