We are a language friendly school!

A story to tell, a message to give… in our own language.

Did you know that the AIS is a language friendly school? Do you know what this means?

It means we are Language Ambassadors welcoming new friends to our school. We help them feel at home so they can express themselves in their home language.

At the AIS we celebrate language diversity and promote language learning. We preserve and foster the rich linguistic and cultural diversity.

Would you like to see some language friendly activities we have done? Take a peek!

Kinderboekenweek

From the 10th to the 14th of October, the AIS family celebrated Kinderboekenweek. A week to celebrate our passion for reading.

This year´s theme was animals and nature.

On Monday, we gathered for the official opening of this very special week. We read a book and danced to this year´s song “Gi-ga-groen“.

During the rest of the week, books took over the school. Every classroom decorated their doors after a book of their choice.

Finally, on Friday, we dressed up like our favourite book character and attended a fashion show! Everyone had the opportunity to showcase their costumes.

All in all, it was an amazing week.

European Day of Languages

On the 26th of September, everyone in the AIS family was excited to celebrate the European Day of Languages.

From Group 1 to Group 7, all our classes reflected on the importance of this day.

At the AIS we speak English, but also many other languages. Have you ever wondered how many? Take a peek!
