What a Difference a Year Makes
I realized just yesterday that this time last year my husband and I were quarantining and working virtually from a hotel room in London. Who would ever have thought that would be a way anyone would exit an international school. This time last year, the community here was on the verge of another big wave, leading to subsequent COVID closures. Fear was still a huge factor. Much of our world is in a better place a year on, at least from a COVID perspective and as a community when we can begin to come together again. My hope is that next year we can have a year of deep community building.
And Lest We Forget…WORLDWIDE COVID NUMBERS

Owing to personal circumstances, Mark Hoffman will be leaving AISL on 20 May. Therefore this year the sports awards will be handed out in conjunction with the divisional grade level awards in Secondary and the final PALS assembly in Primary. More details out nearer the time. A more formal evening of celebration will resume in the next school year.

Save the Date. The AISL PTA Car Boot Sale is Back!
Now that restrictions have been lifted significantly, the PTA requested for the annual PTA Car Boot sale to be back on campus. And so there will be one this year on 4 June. Details to follow in the PTA portal.
Wishing you all a fun weekend and hoping to see many of the community at the PTA May Ball this Saturday. Looks set to be a fun evening. Thank you to the PTA for the organizing of this event over many months.
With kind regards,
