Dear Parents,

In this update I would like to focus on the progress of the new campus and important Day 1 information.

Director's Update - March 20th 2018

Dear Parents and Community Members:

I wish to draw your attention to the following updates from ASIZ.

New AISZ Learning Ecosystem

Over the few weeks, since the start of school, I have really enjoyed talking with groups of people about the new AISZ Learning Ecosystem which describes the interconnectedness of learning for all at AISZ.

Construction of the the AISZ Concept School of the Future about to start as contracts are signed.

I was absolutely delighted to sign the construction contract of our new AISZ Bundek School Campus with the consortium Teh-Gradnja and Projektgradnja on August 29th 2017.

The project will commence in the second week of September 2017 and I will keep you up to date with the progress through our school website.

Welcome To Our New School Year

After a rejuvenating summer the staff and faculty of AISZ are excitedly waiting for our students to arrive on Monday 21st. On Friday we welcomed our new families and had our chance to share the work we do at the school. We had a number of our returning students also helping the new students to settle in which was very much appreciated.

Relational Aggression & Social Media

This morning our Counselor Mr. Don Tingley discussed Social Media and Relational Aggression. The topic related to student transitions between schools, classes, and divisions (i.e. Lower School - Middle School; Middle School - High School) and social media issues such as mean, rude, bullying behavior and relational aggression. The presentation used to stimulate our conversation was distributed to you by email.

Dr. Lavina discussed our school's focus upon the transition points which impact our students and how we are building systems to make sure that every student feels known and advocated for and how as a result of the Community Dream Summit we are consciously and intentionally building more forums for "student voice". Parents who also attended the Summit spoke of the eloquence of our students and their desire to help the school in our development in order to further enhance school life for those who come after them.

We have a number of books in our library available for parents who would like to follow up or have further information on this topic.

Thank you to the parents who attended. This partnership is very important to our school. In the future we hope to include students in our Coffee with Content.

During the conversation we watched part of a conversation with Simon Sinek. Simon discussed our adolescents and cellphones. It came from this 15 minute video Millennials in the Workplace. The whole video is worth watching, but the part we shared today begins 03:10 to 07:20.


Bistro Gableraj: New Canteen Provider from August 2017

After three days of taste testing our different cafeteria tenders, the committee is proud to announce Bistro Gableraj will be commencing AISZ Cafeteria service in August 2017.

Thank you to students, parents and staff for their participation and feedback during the three days. Without such input the decision would have been much more difficult. 

Gableraj presented their food to the panel on the second day of the tasting.
