India solidarity

As a response to the health crisis in India, AIS organized a fundraiser event where all the money collected was going to support UNICEF. We are proud to announce that out of our goal of 3000 NOK, we were able to raise over 33,000 NOK which highly exceeded our expectations. 

Thank you to everyone who contributed to this cause. We are very proud of the community that represents AIS. We were also lucky to see some of our teachers get soaked during the ice bucket challenge that was viewed by all the students through zoom. 

During May, SFO will set up a small school garden in order to enrich the learning and provide an arena for sustainability education in practice. SFO believes that the school garden will lead to increased knowledge about nature and provide hands-on learning about nutrition as well as build enthusiasm, teamwork and perseverance. For this to happen, we need the help from the school community. If you would like to get involved with the SFO's garden project, in the form of cultivation tips, spare plants or garden tools / equipment and planters etc., we kindly ask you to get in contact with Miss Selma at This email address is being protected from spambots.

We are looking forward to hearing from you and to seeing our garden grow with your help.



World Book Day and PYP Exhibition

AIS celebrated World Book Day with lots of engaging activities and costumes. Many children (and adults!) came to school dressed as their favourite book character. We had some very creative and interesting characters in the classrooms. The students were able to see each other during our Zoom assembly. 

The theme of the day was “sharing stories”. The students spent the morning sharing stories that they wrote themselves inspired by some of our favourite children’s authors. It was a great day!

This week the Grade 5 students were happy to announce the completion of their PYP Exhibition. It's been a long process for all involved, and the students have really given their all.

Earth Day 2021

This week we celebrated Earth Day at AIS. Miss Anja introduced Earth Day to the school community during a zoom assembly. This was a day for all of us to act as global citizens and to raise awareness about the importance of actively protecting the environment and the  world we live in. By the end of the day each class came up with a plan for a measurable action to reduce plastic waste. Some ideas included plastic-free lunches, a clean-up day in our community, or creating posters to raise awareness. 

To celebrate Earth Day in Grade 1 we discussed the commitments and actions we would make to take care of our planet, see above. 



It gets better

Thank you AIS community for your support during these weeks, it has been sincerely appreciated. This is just a polite reminder that if your child is showing symptoms relating to Covid please do not send them to school. Please arrange to have a test and keep the child at home until they receive a negative test result. If you (the parent) are also showing symptoms then also make sure that your child/children remain at home until you have received a negative test result. Siblings must also remain at home if someone in your household is in quarantine. Thank you for your continued support. Remember, it gets better! 

Miss Helene and Mr Simon will be running a Zoom information session on MOT. The session will begin at 15:30 on Thursday April 15th and will run for 30 minutes. This has only been offered to parents who have children from G7-10. To access the meeting please use the link below and the teacher running the session will admit you into the meeting once it begins.
