11.17 Family & Student Update

Dear Parents and Students,

Our High School students are having an absolutely wonderful time on their amazing Outdoor Educational Leadership Program (OELP) adventures. If you have not followed our AIS OELP social media account @OELPAIS on X (formerly Twitter), you are missing out on a wonderful window of insight into what this special program offers students at American International School.

Giving back to the wider global community changes our students, as they authentically experience first hand how others around the world live. A fantastic mix of helping others, challenging themselves, and having good old-fashioned fun, our students are stretched in every way possible, and they are forever changed by the experience. Here are just a few images from the last few days.

This week our Middle School students also headed out on their OELP adventures, and the excitement on Wednesday morning was palpable! They are making their way back to campus as I type, and I look forward to seeing them all again on Tuesday morning. Pictures of their adventures will be shared soon.

Winter Fair Tickets

Winter Fair tickets will be sent home next Friday, 24 November and are due back to school on or before Friday, 1 December. Be sure to look out for them, as they are valuable and are considered cash. Wish all of the wonderful prizes on offer this year, I know you’ll want to be sure to get yours right away. You may also wish to consider ordering more before the fair, as the price goes up the day of the fair.
