Dear HIS Community
Thank you to the PTA for the creative work on the HIS Festival which will be known as HIS Fun Day. We are very grateful to the patience and flexibility of the PTA Committee as you work toward the goal of organizing a fun day for the HIS community. We are all looking forward to HIS Fun Day!
This week’s TED Talk is one that has been quite influential in education and with over 22,000,000 views and addresses the topic of motivation. Daniel Pink gives us some interesting perspectives on what motivates us. It is presented in a business context, but equally applicable in a school context when we look at the types of tasks and problems we use in our units of inquiry across our IB programmes.
Enjoy the long weekend.

Annual Report 2017/2018
Please find below a copy of the HIS Annual Report for 2017/2018. This would normally be published in October 2019 after we have undergone an auditing process and calculated consumption taxes for the previous year, however, this was slightly delayed this year due to the recent accreditation visits. It is intended as a brief outline and contains important information including our financial statements.
Host families still needed for our guests from the Netherlands (April 4-11)
I would like to thank the two families who have come forward to host students from Comenius College during their upcoming visit in April. Your commitment to this partnership is very much appreciated. We are still looking for four more host families, ideally with children in grades 8-12. However, if you would be able to host and have a child in a lower grade, please let me know as well.
International Schools Assessment (ISA)
