Our UWC Week of Peace Promotion continues
Arusha 5 days ago

We are working hard at ISMAC to become known as the school which celebrates diversity and welcomes everyone within our walls. I think this is an area in which we can become better, and this term we have held many discussions in both the Primary and Secondary school about how we can do this.

Our P4/5 Class students deliberated about this and have come up with the following messages which, I think, we can ALL try and put into practice – students and adults alike.

United World College Day

UNITED WORLD COLLEGE DAY and United Nations PEACE DAY Thursday 21st September

ISMAC kicked off the UWC ‘week’ by inviting everyone at the school to join in by placing their handprint on the ‘diversity’ wall. Why ‘DIVERSITY’?

Central to the ethos of ISM and UWC is that if we actively invite diversity amongst our members, then understanding of different people can only be enhanced and hopefully conflict reduced.

Add a Little Colour!
Moshi 2 weeks ago

On Saturday September 23rd at 1:30pm we will be mixing service and fun.

On the service side, we will be taking 6 walls around campus and making them sparkle like the colors above. Each house will have two walls each to complete. We hope to see a real mix of PYP, MYP and DP students from each house showing off their painting skills. But please remember, it is the walls we are looking to paint.

On the fun side, while all of this is happening, our service planning group will be running activities such as basketball and football competitions, ring toss games, a face painting/temporary tattoo booth, karaoke & dance and others. They will also have stalls with food and drink for those who have been hard at work.

The money raised by this group will be used to help fund different community based service activities planned through the year. Please ask them about their work.

All families are welcome, painting is optional but is encouraged and should be fun as well. Clothing that you don’t mind getting painted is suggested.

Great news…..our ISMAC swimming pool has been filled and swimming may start immediately!
This is excellent news for those who wish to train for the annual Rotary ISMAC Triathlon. This year’s event will take place on Saturday 16th September so we don’t have long to get in shape!
Once again, places are limited and so our advice is to enrol early. Last year many people left it too late to enter and missed out on competing in a terrific event.

Outdoor Pursuits
Moshi 1 month ago

Dear Parents,

Sign-ups for Outdoor Pursuit trips will start on Monday 21st of August. A full view of the OP program and specific trip information has been presented to students this past Thursday. It will also be presented to students through tutors on Monday and throughout the next week as well as posted on the OP notice board at school. To sign-up, it is the students’ responsibility to use the Google form sent by Mr Foya, the OP Coordinator, to indicate their interest in an OP trip.  Letters concerning the trips that a student selected will be sent to the parents shortly after. Payment can then be made directly at the accounts’ department in order to secure a spot for the trip. As there are limited places, priority will be given to students who are the first to make full payment.

Please note that the Tanzanian government is applying the VAT tax on tourism activities and unfortunately this tax is affecting the cost of our OP trips. The differing prices for Tanzanian and expatriate students reflect differing charges from the National Parks.  The food costs indicate costs for non-boarders who are not already paying for food.

Please do encourage your son/daughter to take this opportunity to experience the wonderful environment here in Tanzania.  This is a long-standing program within ISM and one that alumni look back on fondly as some of their most fun and challenging times here.

This December the OP trips will expand to include the inaugural mountain cycling two-day trip.  More information will be coming out shortly concerning this new adventure.
