Mayor visiting our school

The Mayor of Siena, Luigi De Mossi, visits the school and meets teachers and students.

On Tuesday, the Mayor of Siena visited the school and toured around the classrooms and teaching spaces.

The Mayor chatted with students across all age groups and he was very interested in the IB curriculum programme and the high quality work that he observed in the classrooms as well as the multilingual environment.

Our fantastic indoor Gym was very exciting for him and he played some Basketball for a while with Mirco! Thanks to Isla (Gr. 10) and Mirco (Gr. 11), who joined the Mayor and his team for the tour as they were able to offer their perspective and experience of our school and answer questions about different parts of the whole school.

Our Gr. 10 students shared their textiles and textures project in our Visual Art room.

 

IS Siena Grade 6 PYP Exhibition

IS Siena has enjoyed a fantastic PYP Exhibition and we congratulate our Grade 6 students for their hard work, determination and diverse presentations.

Gr. 6 parents thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

Great thanks to the Miss Jennifer and so many staff members who have advised and mentored during the Exhibition process and also our Gr. 6 parents who have supported their children and provided a wonderful celebration for us all last week.

Well done everyone!

Sports Day

 

On Friday 7th June IS Siena held its annual sports morning.

Students were placed in mixed age teams representing different continents and dressed in various team colours.

The morning started with an Olympic parade and continued with a mix of competitive and co-operative games for all ages.

Teams were awarded 2 trophies, one for the team with the most points and one for the team that displayed good cooperation and learner profile attributes such as ‘caring’ or ‘open-minded’.

Congratulations to America 1 and Africa 2!

Many thanks to all the students, teachers and parents that made this such a fun event.
