Dear Parents,

Thank you Grade 5 students and our Arts Department Teachers (Sara Roberts, Hilary Eldridge, Minal Ramaiya, Kasanga Liova and Anthony Kataleya) for the excellent Grade 5 Arts Showcase this morning.

Last Saturday IST hosted an Under 9 football tournament. The boys were unbeaten in their pool, playing some great football. In the semi -final they were beaten by Genesis in a very close game. The girls have grown in confidence with their football throughout the season and played tremendously on Saturday. They beat Dar International School in the final and were very excited to win the trophy. Thanks to Mr. Isaac, Mr. Harris for coaching the teams and to Ms. Megan, Mr. Jared and Mr. Casto for organising the tournament.

The Girls Team Posing With Their Trophy

On Tuesday the Swim Squad Team enjoyed an inter-school gala at IST. Our many swimmers swam tremendously and it was lovely to have DIA and Aga Khan join us for the gala.

The Inter-School Swim Gala

On Tuesday December 4 more of our swimmers will be taking part in the Development Swim Gala at DIA School.

Next Friday, December 7 Grade 2 will be presenting their Grade Assembly in the MPH starting at 7.20pm. On Friday December 14 all parents are invited to the final assembly of the semester.

Written Reports
Semester 1 Progress Reports will come home on Friday December 14. These reports contain a summary of progress written by your child's homeroom teacher ( and English Additional Language and Learning Support if applicable). As a follow up to these reports Three Way Conferences will be held with parents and students (Grade 1-5) on Wednesday January 23. Opportunity will also be given to meet with specialist teachers at these conferences.

Reusing and Recycling at IST
Thanks to Food Lovers who have taken on board our drive to become more environmentally aware at school. Your cappucino can now be served in a mug and juice served in a glass. (please return to the canteen when used).

T-Go T-Shirts
The TGO (Teen Girls Organization) is a student organisation that collaborates with teenage students from other schools as well to help fund education for young girls in need. As part of fundraising, they're selling TGO t-shirts that might be just what you're looking for for your Christmas Stocking! Each t-shirt is 15,00 TZS, adult sizes LARGE- SMALL.
