Forum Information and Updates
Last week we had our first forum for term three the agenda included MAP testing for this term, Student Led Conferences and sharing information about staffing and classroom space in the Primary School for next academic year.
MAP testing G3-G5 May 8th -26th
The Spring MAP testing is with us again, the students have been reviewing their test taking skills, this can be a bit of an anxious time for students so we have provided some information for you about the tests and how to prepare your child for their tests, schedules and what to expect. Our LAst forum also provided lots of information about online support for test preparations through the Library Website using IXL Math, Tumbletots and the Khan Academy. For further information about the MAP test please click here.

KIS Parent forum Aug1916-17 FF
I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday, the KIS renovations are going really well and I’m sure you will be as excited as I am about the changes. I just wanted to send a couple of reminders before the new term starts and before you start to do your back-to-school shopping as there are a couple of items that I need to be a little more specific about.
Our cubies for back packs are purpose built throughout the school and student bags will need to fit inside them, please, when purchasing a new back-pack for the new school year can you make sure they are no bigger than the KIS back-packs pictured below.
- Big 30cmx44cmx20cm
- Small 23cmx36cmx15cm
Back-packs need to be of a size that students can carry themselves, please do not buy bags with wheels or oversized bags that will not fit in the cubies. If your child has after school classes that require additional uniforms and equipment that do not fit in the back-pack please use an additional draw string bag or a separate carrier.
Footwear needs to be safe and students needs to be able to put on and take off their own shoes easily, please avoid footwear that does not have a back and is not secure (i.e. flip flops), shoes that flash or make noises should also be avoided; colors should blend with the uniform or be black.
Please think about ordering your KIS sweater now for the cooler season so as not to be caught out without the proper uniform.
Leggings are not a part of the school uniform or the PE uniform, students can wear socks in uniform colors or if it is a cooler day the girls may wear white or navy tights. Hair accessories should also match the uniform colors. Please read the attached uniform policy for other reminders.
These are just a couple of reminders to help you with your back to school shopping trips, please enjoy the remainder of your holiday. I’m looking forward to seeing you all again in a couple of weeks. If you have any questions please do not hesitate to drop me a line at email@example.com
Warm regards and many thanks, June
