Visiting Student

Fafe and his father Roberto visited H.I.S. today. Fafe was in Grade 1 last school year. His former classmates welcomed him enthusiastically.

Here is a message from Fafe for his friends at H.I.S.:

I will miss you!

Come and visit me in Spain.

I am happy in the new school.

I am proud of myself in class.

I am happy I could visit you today.

Fafe

Fafe moved to Spain with his family. We wish him and his family all the very best  – come and visit us again, Fafe!

Sankt Nikolaus war da!

December 6th is St. Nicolas Day in Germany. In remembrance of Saint Nicolas children in Germany get little gifts on that day hidden in their boots.

When the PYP students arrived this morning at school they found their self-made Nikolaus boot with a little surprise in it. 

Who was walking through the hallway with his dirty boots? We might have an idea who the red piece of fabric belongs to, you too?

From The Student Support Team…

Child Protection Workshop

Many thanks to all the mothers and fathers who attended our Child Protection Workshop and participated in the round table discussions. It was great to share information with so many members of the H.I.S. community.

We covered what German law requires of schools in Germany and the options and training the Student Support Team members have had to address student disclosures. Furthermore we spent time on defining and discussing child safety.

The new Child Protection Handbook is available on the school website. A great deal of work went into creating this handbook, which also ensures we comply with the German State laws and with the requirements of the those organisations that accredit us as an International IB World School.

Feel free to address any questions you have to Lance Fortner or Atashi Mukherjee and the Learning Support Team.
