School Leaders' Editorial
We thank parents for having attended Student-led Conferences (SLC). Parents' participation in the SLC's is the real support and encouragement needed for young learners to extend their learning. We have received input and feedback about SLC's this semester that we will use to review current practices for the betterment in the next academic year.
Arts Festival will be held in the community hall next Wednesday (PYP classes) and Thursday (Middle Years) 4-6 p.m. Students return home at 12:20. It is expected that students come to the community hall together with their parents at 3:30pm.

This week’s assembly was a very special occasion because it involved every student from playgroup to grade five presenting an item related to ‘global citizenship’. This was the first time so many people had contributed to one assembly on the same day.
Because we had so many students involved in this assembly, it went well past our usual time frame of fifteen minutes but everyone did a great job of sharing ideas and displaying work on what it means to be a global citizen. It was great to have the grade four and five classes from the Kayu Besi campus join us and share their work too. We had a lot of support from a large number of parents which was great to see.
During the assembly we saw ideas about global citizenship being expressed in a number of different ways including; saying hello and thank you in different languages; in artwork and research about countries around the world and by hearing the thoughts and ideas of some of our students.
It is great to see that our journey of learning, thinking about and acting upon being effective global citizens has begun and we look forward to the next exciting event!

After that, they continued to share what they have been learning in each subject. In Maths, they learnt about ratios by comparing the scales on thermome-ters and finding out the formula. In Social Studies, they delivered a presentation about Thailand. They also shared interesting things they learnt in Civics, Bahasa Indonesia and Science. They closed the assembly by singing Christina Perri’s song entitled, ‘A Thousand Years’ with acoustic guitar.
