CARING COMMUNITY TRANSCENDS SPACE AND TIME
QAIS welcomed several new students this second semester, from Toddler to Grade 9/MYP 4, all through the virtual distance learning classroom. As caring, empathetic learners with a commitment to service, QAIS students embraced these new students in myriad ways.
The grade 4 class welcomed Lanaya Kumar, who is currently studying all the way from India. Students reached out directly via the Microsoft Teams chat function and created a ‘Girls Club’ where they are able to discuss topics other than school work, so as to foster strong relationship building and support for one another.
Bella Quinn (Grade 9/MYP 4) has been receiving welcoming messages from classmates, as she logs in from London. Students, old and new, create a positive difference in the lives of those around them through community action, while cultivating an inclusive and vibrant community.
Stephanie Mun （3年级）与大家分享她最喜爱的历史人物，特丽莎修女。主班老师Kimi Tsuchiya说，“她的加入是对班级一个非常好的补充。Stephanie非常勤奋，提交高质量的作业。她希望尽快开学可以见到新的朋友们。”
Peppi（4年级）给新同学Lanaya的消息。主班老师Ms. Gracie McGill说，“虽然Lanaya通过虚拟课堂的方式加入班级，但我们仍然可以帮助到她，并与她建立友谊！
