What I am excited about this week…
ISSEA! This week we have two teams participating in ISSEA tournaments. ISSEA stands for International Schools of Southern and Eastern Africa and is our international high school sports and cultural events league. ISSEA is comprised of seven other schools: AIS Johannesburg, AIS Mozambique, Harare International School, International School of Uganda, International School of Kenya, International School of Tanganyika, and the International Community School of Addis Ababa. Each year our students participate in at least eleven ISSEA events, each one hosted by an ISSEA school. This week our Track and Field team is competing in Ethiopia and our girls and boys Volleyball teams are competing in Mozambique. You can follow these events on Facebook at @isseatrackandfield2018 and @ISSEAVolleyball2018. GO LEOPARDS!
Open Day on 2 November – Please Spread the Word! We will be holding an Open Day for prospective students on 2 November. Please help to spread the word to anyone you know who would be interested in learning more about the school. Interested families can RSVP with Natasha at email@example.com. Thank you for your help in making our Open Day a success!
Director’s Coffee Morning on 31 October! I will be hosting a coffee/tea morning at 07:30 in the Palm Pavilion on 31 October. I will make a formal presentation about AISL’s approach to safety and security. There will be time left for Q&A on that topic or any other at the end of the session. I hope you can join me.
Counting Cars! For the next week or so, you may see people outside the school gates wearing yellow reflective vests. They are monitoring traffic near the school as part of a traffic study we are conducting in hopes of petitioning the local authorities for traffic calming measures on Leopard Hill Road. The new speed camera sign seems to be helping but we are hoping for a more permanent fix.
ISAZ National Champs! Congratulations to our U19 Boys Volleyball and U19 Girls Basketball teams for taking gold at the ISAZ National Championships. Congratulations also to our U19 Boys Basketball team who missed gold by just a couple of points to earn silver and U19 Girls Volleyball team who took home the bronze. Well done, Leopards!
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.
