As part of SIS’s objective to develop our students’ 21st Century Skills of Financial Literacy, Collaboration and Leadership, we brought our students to Yangon Waterboom.
Besides enjoying themselves on the various waterslides, the students also took part in various activities which developed their teamwork and leadership.
To encourage a healthy lifestyle and celebrate Mothers’ Day, Fathers’ Day and International Children’s Day, we organised our inaugural Family Sports Day. We also aimed to develop our students’ 21st Century Skills in Collaboration, Persistence/Grit, Adaptability and Initiative.
Besides playing various games to represent their respective houses, the students also worked together with their family members and we could see that everyone enjoyed themselves from the smiles on all their faces as they participated in the various games and activities.
We will like to thank all the teachers for organising the event and preparing the equipment and certificates. We will also like to thank 100PLUS for your support in today’s event.
To apply what they have learnt about Financial Literacy in school, our Primary 1 – 3 students visited Marketplace and Food Streat at Junction City.
In groups comprising of students from each level, the students had to purchase the ingredients and items needed for their group assignment – to make one of the dishes for their lunch on 24 May.
Prior to the trip, the students already had a discussion to decide how much budget each group would be assigned with.
At the supermarket, the students had to use their financial literacy, numeracy and collaboration skills to ensure that they purchase all the items needed and keep within the budget assigned.
After purchasing the items, the students had lunch at Food Streat, where they chose from the wide range of food stalls available and make purchases that was within their own personal budget as well.
After returning from the trip, students applied their literacy skills by writing about what they saw and learnt during the trip.
We will like to thank Marketplace and Food Streat and their staff for their hospitality towards us. We will also like to thank Teachers Fretsie, Jasmine, Tin and Nicholas for leading each group.
In line with SIS’s commitment to developing students’ 21st Century Skills (Curiosity and Social and Cultural Awareness), our P4-6 students visited the National Races Village to learn more about the different ethnic groups in Myanmar.
Even though it had been raining in Yangon for the past few days, the educational trip was blessed with good weather and our students enjoyed themselves as they learnt about the cultures of the various ethnic groups.
We will like to thank Ms Kshama, Ms Lily and Mr Renato for bringing the students on their education trip.
As part of SIS’s development of students’ Curiosity and Scientific Literacy skills, our Pre-school students visited the Yangon Zoo to learn more about animals and visit them in an enclosure.
Besides visiting the animals, each child also had a chance to feed the animals and build up their confidence when faced with an unfamiliar situation.
We ended off the educational trip by having pizza at PastaMania Myanmar and will like to thank them for hosting our teachers, students and their parents.
We are pleased to announce that following the audit conducted by SEAB last December, SIS: RVi Academy Yangon has once again been appointed as an Examination Centre for the iPSLE, the only school in Yangon to be awarded this status.
As part of SIS’s preparation of our students for the 21st Century, we conducted our Union Day Celebration ahead of the actual event on 12 February.
Our students and teachers dressed up in the attires of the various national races in Myanmar and learnt more about the different races through the activities conducted.
We celebrated the Lunar New Year with performances by various groups of students (Nursery, Kindergarten, Lower Primary, Upper Primary and Secondary Level).
The Moe Nagar Lion Dance Troupe also put up a wonderful performance and posed for pictures with students, parents and staff.
Our CEO, Mr Argus, ended off the event with a bang when he distributed red packets to the students.
