Antwerp International School (AIS), an IB World School serving both international and local communities in Flanders, has been authorised to offer the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP). The combined efforts of students, teachers and parents alike during four preparatory years resulted in an outstanding report from the inspectors at the final authorisation visit. AIS looks forward to stimulating young minds and offering students real-world learning experiences, laying the foundation for both the Middle Years Programme (MYP) and the IB Diploma Programme (DP).
AIS News is the place to be for news and stories celebrating all activities taking place at Antwerp International School.
Mr. Carlier's Grade 11 IBDP students have been learning about the historical and academic contexts of blogging in their English lessons. As a final project, they created their own blogs, which are really enjoyable to read! The students experimented with all the features available on Wordpress. Click below to read some of their work.
Seven Secondary School students went to the Botball Competition in Sofia last month. The Botball Educational Robotics Program engages students in a team-oriented robotics competition and exposes them to an inquiry-based, learn-by-doing activity that appeals to their hearts as well as their minds.(*)
Earth Day 2017: AIS students cleaned up a section of Schelde river bank just north of Lillo, which is maintained by Natuurpunt vzw.
Grade 7A reflected on their Natuurpunt clean-up by answering 5 questions.
Last week Jake, Aman and Tanisha from grade 6 took part in the Annual Math Quest, organised by the International School of Geneva (Ecolint). For three days, they immersed themselves in a competition that involved 28 schools, mostly from Europe, but also from the USA, Oman and Qatar. The team of three AIS students was supplemented by a fourth student from Ecolint. They all worked hard on both individual and team tasks. They also went to visit CERN where they had to solve problems as part of the traditional Math Trail. The team collaborated really well and ended up as the 8th best team! A result they can all be proud of!
Here is a reflection from the students themselves:
Jade, Ottilie, Shaelyn, Anushree and Ella represented AIS at the Girls Middle School Honour Choir Festival.
Grade 5 student Bintou had her 5 minutes of fame last week. As a TV reporter for Karrewiet, the news channel of Ketnet, she interviewed the musical stars of "Cats".
Rohan M. from Grade 8 has been awarded the prestigious High Honours Award at Johns Hopkins Centre for Talented Youth program 2016-17. We are all very proud of him. Click to read a short interview with Rohan.
Grade 4 student Ahaan M. will run the 5 km during the 10 Miles in Antwerp on 23 April 2017. Together with family and friends, he wants to raise funds for "Love and Care", a charity he feels very passionate about. A touching interview with Ahaan and his mum will tell you more about this good cause and how you can support them.
