Dear AISL Community,
End of Semester 2021 Message from the Director
On Friday we will celebrate the end of 2021 and the holidays with a whole school virtual assembly at 11.15 am. Here is the link. Hope you can join us.
Holiday Hampers for our Support Staff
A strong tradition at AISL is for our learners to be a part of preparing a holiday hamper at this time of the year for all our support staff . We created 110 hampers and delivered them on Wednesday. This is a great school initiative and a way to say thank you and give back to those who make sure our days go smoothly. Thank you especially to Trevor Mrak for coordinating this. A job well done!
To Consider…If you have time over the Holidays
This week the TedEx by Julie Lythcott-Haines How to Raise Successful Kids came to my attention. It is an interesting take on how we raise our children and worthy of a listen.
Instructions for the Journey
The self you leave behind
is only a skin you have outgrown.
Don’t grieve for it.
Look to the wet, raw, unfinished
self, the one you are becoming.
The world, too, sheds its skin:
politicians, cataclysms, ordinary days.
It’s easy to lose this tenderly
unfolding moment. Look for it
as if it were the first green blade
after a long winter. Listen for it
as if it were the first clear tone
in a place where dawn is heralded by bells.
With kind regards,
Dr. Oli Tooher-Hancock
