Spreading our wings with the QAIS butterfly community art project
QAIS has been growing steadily while expanding opportunities for students of different ages to collaborate and bond as a community. We cherish every opportunity for older students to serve as role models for younger ones, while younger students can remind older students about the joy of learning and discovery experienced through a child’s eye. This mutually beneficial relationship of unconditional acceptance and support is at the core of who we are as a school community.
Last Friday, January 12, QAIS teachers and students from toddler to grade 12 came together for a brief presentation in the auditorium followed by a quick journey to our cafeteria where they put their hands, minds, and hearts together in order to create a collective work of art that will symbolize how we are ready to spread our wings and fly to greater heights at the start of our journey on our new campus.
At QAIS, we value the fact that we are a family, bound by our love for learning, exploration, creativity, imagination, and by understanding how we can teach others and learn from others as we strive to become better versions of ourselves. For this reason, full-school opportunities like this one are crucial to keep this spirit alive.
In students’ words, QAIS is a community that makes us think of colors, of relationships, and of stories. As we begin to write the next chapter of our history, we hope it will be an accurate depiction of who we are when we are at our best and an inspiring tale of human potential and achievement.
