Our first fire drill


We had our first fire drill today. The children did very well indeed. They managed to exit the building in a very orderly fashion in less than 2 minutes and may I just add that grade 1 in particular were brilliant. 

We discussed the importance of doing fire drills and it would be useful if parents could discuss this at home. One or two kids talked about being prepared by wearing their shoes in bed, so dont be overly surprised if you find your son or daughter in pyjamas and a pair of rubber boots in the evening!

It is very important that students have indoor shoes here at school and that they understand that they have to wear them. We are mandated to have 2 fire drills per annum but we will have more. Students will not have time to put on outdoor shoes and get ready. 

Although our first fire drill was successful, we left some doors open. So that is an area to improve on. In the next few weeks we will use the emergency exit so students get used to that also. 

So congratulate your child on a job well done!

Yours sincerely, 

Robert Browne


New class blogs

We are getting close to the start of school and in preparation the teachers have started working on their blogs. They will be posted on the webpage as and when they are ready with the intention of having them all accessible and online before 19th. 

These blogs will be used as a primary channel of communication between parents and their respective class group. Here you will find information on the current unit, some useful links and videos posted by the teachers, the homework the students will be working on and more. 

So after school starts, please develop the routine of opening up the blogs to check for updates.

The blogs are located under the 'Learning at AIS' tab. 

So teachers, start blogging!
