We have a wonderful coffee house tradition in the secondary school of AISL that offers students a chance to share many forms of creative expression in a relaxed, supportive environment. Students have shared song, instrumental pieces, dances, improv theatre, stand-up comedy, poetry, and more.
Our first upper secondary (Grades 9-12) coffee house of the year will be held on the outside deck of the Palm Pavilion on Friday 20 November from 19:00-20:00. Space will be limited to the first fifty students who sign up, with priority going to the students who plan to perform / share at the coffee house (sign-up sheet is posted in the AISL Student Portal and this has been announced at assembly). We will need a minimum of 15 acts in order to host the event, as we want to make sure that it will be worthwhile for all attendees.
We look forward to scheduling a Middle School Coffee House (grades 6-8) at a later stage as we adjust our organization of coffee houses in light of COVID health and safety protocols. We will keep everyone posted.
Please feel welcome to give your son or daughter a nudge to share at this upcoming coffee house! Students who perform often say how empowering it is to put their ideas out there to a real audience.
The High School Student Council will be helping to coordinate this event, with Ms. Maguire (Secondary School Librarian) serving as the faculty advisor. Please feel welcome to send any questions to firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
