Winter School Programme

The AIS Winter School creates a nurturing and empowering learning environment. Our dedicated homeroom teachers are highly experienced native English speakers. They bring a wealth of expertise to this dynamic program, with a strong focus on cultivating essential language skills, including Listening, Speaking, Reading, and Writing. These skills are expressed throughout weekly topics and will be showcased in a performance at the end of the program.

Beyond language proficiency, students will be immersed in activities that extend to art, ICT, library, and physical education sessions designed to reinforce language acquisition.

But it's not all work and no play. Our Winter School promises fun and enjoyable activities. Students can look forward to two exciting off-campus excursions, a movie day at in our school auditorium, festive Christmas cookie decorating, refreshing water play days, and much more!
