2. Primary Parents’ Workshop
· PYP5: 9th, February 2023
This workshop was titled: Approaches to Learning (ATL’s) and Learner Profile Attributes. In this session, parents learned what these terms mean and their importance to the PYP learner. These skills and attributes could be applied to all aspects of children’s lives, including at home and in the wider community.
· PYP4: 15th, February 2023
This workshop was themed on how to support children at home to learn how to solve their social issues at school. This workshop was led by our school counselor, Ms. Michelle Taylor. She introduced some strategies that could be taught and modeled by parents for their children.
· PYP6: 23rd, February 2023
This workshop was titled: Preparing students for MYP and understanding how the PYP is linked to the MYP and DP at XLIS. Ms. Lea from our secondary school and Mr. Romann Loubser from the primary school introduced parents to the transition students go through when they change from one program to the next. Parents learned how to support their children at home to prepare them for the new expectations they would encounter when they get to M1 and how these new skills would be applied throughout the rest of their middle and high school years.

Secondary School Events
1. Secondary Parent Talk
· 22nd, February 2023-MYP4 & MYP5 & DP1 & DP2
· 28th, February 2023-MYP1, MYP2, MYP3
In Semester 1, we successively completed a series of parent activities, which greatly bonded the home-school connection tighter, and demonstrated a good momentum for family-school cooperation and collaboration. To further develop our XLIS community more engaged and connected, and to provide a broader exchange platform for parents, we planned to conduct 2023 “Parent Talk” in Semester 2! The first two sessions we completed in February were tailored for Secondary parents to share experiences on parenting and other educational philosophy, along with the discussion about how to better support students’ growth from parent level. We firmly believe that the collective efforts and collaborations between family and school will lead to positive school climate, as well as to create a high-quality educational environment.
2. DP2 Mock Exams
The purpose of the mock exams is to give the students the practice to sit for timed papers in exam conditions. The exams were mirrored on the finals- that was students would be able to sit for all the papers that they will have in the finals. Mr. Shameek Ghosh, our DP Coordinator has been arranging for the conduct of these exams. The results from the Mocks will enable teachers to give valuable feedback to students.
