iSAMS: School Database and Parent Portal

As you know, we are now using the iSAMS system for the management of much of our school data, including the school reports. The teachers now create reports on iSAMS and these are sent to you electronically.

Last month, we have introduced to the parents the desktop version of the parents portal, by which they have direct online access to the academic reports and lots of other information about the school and their child(ren).

IMYC - Academic news for September 2017

Curriculum development for the Junior classes: We are introducing several important initiatives for the coming school year. We believe these changes will improve the learning of the students and at the same time structure their day in a way that provides a better equilibrium between their school and study time and their ‘home life’ in the boarding house. These are outlined below:  

Year 6 corresponds to the final year of the UK Key Stage 2, and this class will be integrated into the Minis section of the school, and they will continue to follow the International Primary Curriculum (IPC). The Junior Section will consist of Years 7, 8 and 9, which corresponds to the UK Key Stage 3.

It is now a very important time in the year and all our students are in study mode. This Friday we start the French DELF exams in Lausanne and the students will have a busy few days ahead of them. They have worked very hard as have the teachers and we wish them the best of luck with their exams and hope that they achieve the best results as well. The results will be available over the summer holidays and the school will inform the students and their families as soon as the results arrive at the school.

Fun time-recycling

We are in our first stage of building a go-cart from recycled materials. The students have to follow three basic rules, all the material are to be found and recycled, a lot of effort is to be made designing and building it and of course the students are not allowed to give up! We will keep you updated as to how they get on and of course, show you the film of the first time we try it out...with helmets of course!
