John O’Neill, ISS Artist in Residence

John O’Neill, ISS artist in residence, has continued to engage and inspire students and teachers alike. Primary School have learnt about landscape painting, IB1 students were given a painting workshop and Grade 9/10 class learned about portrait drawing. Not forgetting the wonderful life-drawing at the Fine Arts Festival, where John helped students and parents to draw a ballet dancer model, our very own Anna in Grade 10. You can see a display about this outside the cafeteria. We look forward to seeing John’s own work developing also.

MS Musical: ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr’

Our Middle School students have been busy rehearsing over the last few months to be ready for this school year’s Middle School musical: ‘Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr’. There are three performances: at 19:00 on Thursday, at 19:00 on Friday and at 18:00 on Saturday. Tickets are still for sale for 30NOK/ticket at the ISS Reception. Don’t miss this amazing show! It will be a fun afternoon/evening out for the whole family seeing our talented students giving the best shows of their lives. On the surface, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang Jr is a story about the Potts family and their magical car, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, who is not only capable of winning the Grand Prix but can also float like a boat and fly like an airplane! These amazing talents lead to many exciting adventures for the family, for Chitty herself and for everyone who has the chance to see her in action. At its heart, this joyful and heartwarming musical is a story about believing – believing in ourselves, in each other and in the magic around us.

Where happiness and smiles are captured, the life that’s found in these photos will be forever treasured by yourselves. That’s why it’s always worth it. It’s an account of the progression of your life, something to look back on after many years. Each picture will trigger a feeling, and bring you back to the good days. Priceless!

THIMUN Conference The Hague

Seven High School students and Mrs. Popinchalk arrived back from an excellent THIMUN conference in The Hague (The Netherlands). Together with 3000 students delegates from around the world, they worked hard on a wide variety of issues concerning our world. The ISS group represented Malta with students in General Assembly forums and Human Rights Commissions. After visiting the International Criminal Court and learning more about its work, our students also enjoyed their visit to the Norwegian ambassador’s residence where pizza was served. ISS students were able to meet two other schools from Norway and hear more about Norway’s campaign for a seat on the Security Council 2020-2022.
