Community Projects

The Year 9 students have started The Community Project this term at SIS. It is the celebration and culmination of their learning and skills across a range of MYP subjects and is a required part of the IB MYP course.   It is also an initial step for our students to develop their understanding of service learning and the impact they can make within a community.

Students will need to apply their skills and knowledge to research and investigate a community issue, take action as a team and share their findings with others. The Year 9 students have chosen projects that are based on personal interests and goals.

Goals include:

  • raising awareness
  • participating actively
  • informing others
  • creating or innovating
  • changing behaviours 
  • advocating for the rights of others

Please follow the SIS Community Project instagram HERE to support the Year 9 students and their goals.

Year 8 Chinese

To kick off the Year 8 Chinese Battle of the Books this year, students were working in groups to compete with each other in order to win in a number of games. It was great to see the full engagement from our students and their great passion for reading in Chinese. Year 8 students, well done for your participation and your great team spirit! Good luck with your next game in the coming weeks!

Year 8 EAP

Year 8 EAP students last week took part in a paper plane folding and flying competition. Following on from reading a novel all about a boy who wins a paper plane competition in Australia, Year 8 students got to design and fly their very own planes.

The competition was fierce with some students favouring a ‘thin and sharp’ style for distance while others preferred a ‘low and flat’ shape to enhance gliding time. In the end, there were two clear winners, Jason Lee (08S1) and Zoe Sze (08N1). Congratulations to all competitors  – and don’t forget to keep creating great paper planes – you never know where they’ll take you!

As part of their lessons, students have been learning about neurons in the brain. Neurons are a popular art subject surprisingly, and here are some artistic renderings by some of our talented Year 12 students over the Easter Break!
