The school will be celebrating Literacy Week next week (Sept. 4-8). Year 7 will be participating in a range of activities throughout the week. They will also be attending a session with a guest speaker, Mr. Tui Ledua, a local book illustrator.
Please be advised that Thursday, September 7 is Constitution Day public holiday. There will be no school.
Homework Tasks & Assessments
Students are on the tail end of their IDU project which is due Wednesday, August 30. Please find an update for most of the relevant curriculum on the Assessment page of our Year 7 webpage. Parents can access the parent portal for updates regarding student progress. Please find the parent portal guide here.
We have informed the Year 7 students of how proud we are of the effort they are making to follow the uniform code. They all look smart in their full Bula uniforms.
International Day of Families
The ISS Family Movie Night was a great success and we thank the Year 7 students for all the hard work they put in the preparations of this event.
Thursday Study Session
Every Thursday, during a school term, the Year 7 core teachers will be holding a study session in the Year 7 classrooms from 2.30-3.30pm. Students are welcome to attend this session should they need help with homework, assignments or if they would like extra guidance on concepts they may find challenging to understand. Students do not need to attend every week, but only when they need the assistance. We kindly ask that parents contact the Year 7 pastoral teachers to indicate if your child will be attending any of these sessions and how they will be going home.
