We are happy to announce our 9th Annual Summer Program for children from the ages of  3 to 17.  Children of any nationality are welcome to participate. The program is open to members of the wider community as well as to our current students.  The classes will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. Monday through Friday, with an extended care option until 4:30 p.m., and a commutation by school bus option for routable locations.

As always, it will be a fun educational program featuring exhibitions, performances and presentations for parents on the final day of each scheduled session. The theme EXPRESSION, be it expression in words (speaking, writing, poetry, drama), visual arts, music or movement, provides a broad context for learning.  Languages are used in the process of the construction, collaboration and presentation of various projects and activities.

STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) investigations are an option for secondary school students, ages 13~17. The first two week investigation will be “Fly away” a project to investigate simple propulsion systems and the physics of aviation. Students will design flying vehicles to carry the heaviest payload as far as possible across the room based on real world designs.  The second two week investigation will be “The Need for Speed”. In this project students will look at how cars move and the ways in which designers work to maximise speed. The project will mirror Formula 1 teams’ search to produce the fastest car possible within set parameters, with a drag race to decide on the most efficient design.  The activities will be facilitated mostly in English, but there is no language proficiency requirement.

New International School teachers will be joined by teachers from Scotland, some of whom specialize in drama, music and/or the visual arts. The classes will all be multiage by design with a maximum ratio of 12 students per teacher.

Parents will be expected to provi
de a snack, lunch and drinks for school.
