The staff and teachers at AIS had a fresh start this week after having had two days of training and planning for the development of the school. Last Thursday, we were lucky to receive music training in preparation for delivering weekly music lessons beginning January 2019. The sessions were fun and we can't wait to introduce the music programme to the children! In one of the training sessions, MYP teachers learned the basics of html and css coding to create a website for their subject.
The Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh (HSS) Norway organise Guru Vandana to highlight the importance of honouring teachers in various fields.
