The family is the basic unit of the society. Before any kid, functions and becomes productive in the bigger world he/she has to feel secure and loved by the family. Knowing this, the school wants to strengthen this bond.The school as the child’s second family and home, also play a very important role in shaping the a child in all facets of development.

Having these in mind, the school organised the “Family Sports Day 2014″ on March 14, 2014 at the U-Arena Stadium. Ten different fun, friendly, and family-oriented games were played by all- kids, parents, and teachers together. The activity’s aim of strengthening bonds among family members, between students and teachers, between teachers and parents, and among the students themselves was definitely achieved. Students learned to listen and cooperate with fellow members as they strove to win each game. The school’s camaraderie is definitely stronger than ever.

Loy Krathong

Loy Krathong is an annual Thai tradition celebrated all throughout Thailand on the full moon night of the twelfth lunar month.  It is translated as “floating crown” or “floating decoration”.  Thai people decorate two-inches thick banana trunk with banana leaves, flowers, candles and incense.  They float these Krathongs in any body of water – river, lake, or pond – then they pray that all the bad luck, bad things, bad memories, bad thoughts, bad events will float away with the Krathong.  They also ask the gods for forgiveness for polluting the rivers and lakes.

SISS kids from Nursery to Year Six, made their krathongs.


They floated their Krathongs in the school’s mini pool.


Games, games, and games…..


How was your Loy Krathong?

Happy Divali


Lights on

I see you.

I see me.

I see all.

Lights off

I see nothing at all.

-Year One-

Year One students are learning about Light.  In line with this, they also explored festivals related to light, one of these is Divali.  It is a Hindu festival which lasts for five days.  It celebrates the victory of good over evil, light over darkness, and knowledge over ignorance. Divali is known as the “festival of lights” because houses are decorated with small earthenware oil lamps called Diyas.

They made their Diyas.  Instead of buying earthenware dishes they used tin bottle caps, which is resourceful and environmental friendly.


* several tin bottle capsDSC01555

* cotton strings

* cooking oil

* big ceramic plate or tray


What to do:

  • Fill as many tin bottle caps as you can find with little oil
  • Cut the cotton strings, long enough to coil around the cap
  • Put this in the cap and make sure one end hangs over the edge
  • Light each wick carefully (ask an adult to do this)


Now is time to celebrate Divali.


Happy Divali!
