Kummine toit, tüütu bürokraatia ja palavad meeleavaldused. Eestlasest tudengi seiklused eriilmelises Hongkongis

ISE is proud of being mentioned as one of the contributors to a decision to study abroad by our alumnus Teele Rebane as she is interviewed by Eesti Päevaleht - https://epl.delfi.ee/artikkel/93142381/kummine-toit-tuutu-burokraatia-ja-palavad-meeleavaldused-eestlasest-tudengi-seiklused-eriilmelises-hongkongis
Teele also points out the benefits of international schools where instruction is skills based rather than fact based and where students are encouraged to discuss and debate, reflect, and ask questions.

We received a very positive response to the article by Ms Noemi last week and her next article about dealing with conflict is at the link below.

The school is also looking at a way of increasing mental wellbeing support for adults in its community. I hope to be able to announce this next week.

💙Congratulations to Teele Rebane (ISE Class of 2017) for becoming a published author! In her book, Teele tells the story of protests in Hong Kong, as witnessed by her first hand. At ISE, Teele was not only a stellar student, but was also involved in many extra-curricular activities, representing ISE at debate competitions and sports events. After achieving a very high score of IB DP points💪, she continued her studies at the University of Hong Kong (www.hku.hk).
Congratulations, Teele!💙

With the Estonian Governement and Health Board recommendations in mind, our youngest students will also go to distance learning. They will receive a kit with school supplies and online lessons will be available to them as well.
PYP STUDENT PROFILE - We are risk takers well balanced principled caring open-minded reflective knowledgeable thinkers communicators inquirers. These features become even more important during Distance Learning.
ISE Reception class (5-6 year olds) discussed and put together their agreement for virtual learning:
📌Be good
📌Listen
📌Model healthy habits
📌Have fun

Our campus is closed, our learning continues. 💪

[03/09/21]   📌The government mandate, approved by cabinet last night means that for at least the next month, ISE will be using its Digital Learning Platform for all students. For most of this academic year, we have been able to offer face to face learning, but the current Covid 19 situation in Estonia means that the Government has mandated that all schools switch to distance learning. We have sent detailed instructions via Managebac for all grade levels. Thank you for your flexibility and understanding as we continue to make the best of a challenging situation.

Group 4 Project

Three exciting Mars missions took place in February this year - the Emirates Hope Mission, NASA's Perseverance Mission and China's Tianwen-1 Mission.
Our DP 1 students were also on a mission to design a habitable module that could support life on Mars. This 10 hour interdisciplinary project pushed the students to combine their understanding of the sciences and design to develop creative models. We're very proud of their efforts!

[03/04/21]   ISE Arrangements For Next Week.
Dear ISE Parent or Caregiver,

I hope that you have been able to take the opportunity to enjoy the sun this week.

Your thoughts are possibly turning towards next week, and what arrangements are in place for student learning.

A government mandate last Thursday has been updated twice since it was announced and this message is a little late coming to you as we have been waiting to see if there are any further changes announced today. The government press conference has just finished, with no new changes in education being announced.

At present, because things are changing so quickly, we are really only able to confirm what will happen next week. It’s not really where we want to be, but for the moment there are still some aspects of the latest mandate that need to be clarified. We are working to do this.

Here’s the summary for next week.

Preschool and Reception, as well as PYP 1 to PYP 5 students will return for face to face learning. It will be a normal school programme and length of day.
MYP 1-5 and DP 1 & 2 students will be on our Distance Learning platform. (This is the current Government mandate)
Our MYP and DP Principal/Coordinators will be in touch with students to communicate Distance Learning arrangements tomorrow (Friday)

If you have questions, please contact the appropriate Principal/Coordinator, in the first instance.

Further information about the remaining weeks in March will come to you once we have the clarity we need.

Sincerely

Don Payne

[03/02/21]   Dear Parents & Caregivers,
The government mandate last Thursday means that only our preschool to PYP 5 will come back for face to face learning on the 8th. MYP & DP students will shift onto our distance learning platform.

Because 24 hours is a long time in a pandemic, we have been holding off formally notifying our community until later in the week, just in case there are further changes.

So that’s the plan at the moment, but we will send out formal confirmation on Thursday.

In the meantime, go for a walk with your children and enjoy the sun.

Mr Don

[02/25/21]   Dear Parents and Caregivers,
In recent days it has become increasingly difficult for the school to maintain its education programme. This is mainly due to a large number of staff in isolation because they have been identified as a Covid 19 close contact.
Currently we have 6 staff out and tomorrow (Friday), as the result of more testing today, we are faced with the prospect of having a further 4 more staff enter isolation. We are also aware that teachers at other schools in Tallinn have experienced flu-like symptoms following their Covid 19 vaccinations that have meant they were unable to report for work.

With just over 1/4 of our staff away tomorrow and the effects of Covid vaccinations unknown, this morning I consulted with the School Board Chairperson and we have made the decision to close the school one day early. This means that there will be no school tomorrow, the 26th of February and the Estonian Day celebrations planned, will be postponed to a time in the future.

We thank you for your support in what has been an extremely difficult term and wish you happiness and health during the holiday period. Our apologies for the short notice and any inconvenience caused.

Please regularly check your messages during the break, as we will notify you if there are mandated changes to whether students are to learn on campus or through our distance platform.

Unless otherwise notified, we look forward to welcoming all our students back to on campus learning on Monday the 8th of March.

Don Payne-ISE Director
Nicole Dennis-ISE Board Chairperson.

We have been advised that ISE staff Covid 19 vaccinations will start on campus at 14:00 this Thursday, the 25th of February. There is a strict set of protocols relating to monitoring before, during and after vaccination. With a number of staff currently in isolation, it will be logistically beyond us to meet those requirements and continue with our education programme. With this in mind, we have decided to close the school one period earlier at 13:50, in order to be able to get our vaccinations. Please accept our apologies for any inconvenience this causes, our hardworking staff need to be vaccinated.

19/02/2021

📌As per Estonian government edict all MYP and DP students will switch to distance learning for the week of the 1st to 5th of March. This is the week that ISE is on holiday and because of this we are not affected.
📌Please also be aware that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs continues to advise against non-essential overseas travel. However, if your you and your family have been overseas, it is important, in order to protect our community, that you follow the correct protocol when coming back to ISE. A graphic explaining this is below.
💙Stay safe, stay well!

Help Children of Nagorno Karabakh

Dear Parents,

PYP 4 learned about Children's Rights. During the Unit of Inquiry they discovered that children may also face various challenges. They had a video meeting with Ms. Piruza (PYP 5 parent) and some children of Nagorno Karabakh conflict region. As a result the PYP 4 students decided to take action. Please watch Laralie's video before you continue reading - https://youtu.be/dp6_t3tCOgo

We have more than half taken care of. Just a few more families needed to make every child happy. If you wish to help, please write your family name in the table and send the donation to PYP 4 classroom.
Ms. Piruza will collect the donations this Friday and deliver them to Armenia next week.

Choosing an International School

Making a decision what school to enroll your child in is one of the most important decisions you will make. At International School of Estonia we think it is important to make sure that you are clear about what schools offer before you make your decision.

So how do you know you are making the right choice for your children?

The starting place is to visit the school and meet the people who work there; talk to them about the expectations you have for your children; and ask lots of questions about the school's core values and pedagogy of learning.

Some questions you might like to ask.
