— Ethnic Pride

As an International School and as part of our school’s tradition, every academic year, we celebrate the Ethnic Pride Festival to commemorate Internationalism and the diversity of the different Nationalities and Cultures represented at AIS. This event has become one of the highlights that our students, faculty members, as well as parents, look forward to each year. At our Ethnic Pride Day celebrations, we aim to acknowledge and appreciate the diversity of our students and allow them to develop a knowledgeable understanding of other cultures.

Ethnic Pride Day Events

— Honors Convocation and Jacketing Ceremony

In September, we honor and recognize the academic achievements of our students. At the annual Honors Convocation and Jacketing Ceremony, we give out certificates to secondary students on the honor roll, and external certificates: IGCSE, and ABRSM Music. At the end of the ceremony, the head of school will help each student in IB1 put on their jacket. These jackets symbolize pride and the start of a new academic journey.

— Thanksgiving Service

At the annual Thanksgiving Prayer Service children of all ages will come together to remember that all good things come from God. The Thanksgiving prayer begins with an opening prayer and a reading of scripture. It includes a multi-age activity that combines art and prayer. The product of this prayer service represents the gratitude of all the children in AIS.

— Parent Involvement

We welcome parent involvement in many areas of school life. Prayer is the most important aspect of this involvement. Secondly, we encourage parents to support their child’s classroom teacher by participating in various class and school events. Parents are welcome to all in-school programs and activities, as well as our three annual school-wide events: The Christmas Concert, Easter Concert, and the Speech and Prize Giving Day.
