TISP Headteacher's Communication Term Three 2023

Updated: Dec 5, 2023

Today, the 30th of November 2023, marks the end of a successful term and academic year at our school. We are immensely grateful to the Almighty God for guiding us and keeping us safe throughout the year, from February until today. We are also grateful to all the parents for their unwavering support, which has been instrumental in our success.


This term was particularly busy, starting with the Year Six International Primary Checkpoint Exams in October. We had 74 candidates who underwent thorough preparation by their teachers and we are confident that we will receive excellent results based on their performances throughout the year. In November, we also had our Primary Leaving Examinations, with 84 pupils participating after very good preparations by their teachers. The children had learned extensively and we believe that the results will be outstanding, which is a testament to their hard work and dedication. We would like to extend our gratitude to the parents of these candidates, some of whom have been with us for their entire primary school.


Our major highlight of the term was the Valedictory and End of Year Concert, where we were ecstatic with the learning and exhibition that our children showcased on the 12th of November. The performances were phenomenal and we were pleased with the commendable support from the parents. We strive to maintain our standards and improve them every year, and we believe that we succeeded with our performances and preparations for the day. On that day, we said goodbye to 158 children who we equipped with our 5Cs. Even those who have been with us for not so long, have got the training of the 5Cs to enable them thrive in their secondary school and later in life. As a philosophy, that is the product we strive to release to the world!


This term also had two Meet-the-Principal meetings aimed at bringing you up-to-date with our operations and taking feedback from you over what we do. The meetings with parents of Top-Class children and Primary 3 children were well attended and cordial. We appreciate the parents who turned up and shared their views about the way we work. We take your feedback very seriously and promise to improve our service to you wherever possible.


Our Nursery school had a Montessori Week, where we exhibited how we use the Montessori approach to teaching our learners in that section. Our Nursery school strives to prepare children for primary school by giving them the prerequisite values such as independence, concentration, curiosity, creativity, decision-making and critical thinking. This is in addition to reading, writing and working with numbers. The Montessori approach gives us the opportunity to deliver all the above values while teaching our children to read and write. Our teachers have received the training into this approach and have done an excellent job with the children, giving them practical life skills. We would like you to continue with these skills when they get home. For those who visited the exhibition on Friday the 24th November, you got a proper understanding of the results of this kind of approach embedded in our teaching. We are kindly asking you to become a Montessori parent at home so that the learning we have given them, especially to those who have left top class to primary school does not get lost!


Cambridge school had a family painting afternoon last week which was hugely successful. The family painting afternoon was meant to give families a bonding time while showcasing their creativity and critical thinking using the brush. It ended up as an amazing afternoon with families presenting fine art skills to unbelievable levels. Art is an excellent medium for growing critical thinking, creativity, decision-making and agency (control). It is an excellent opportunity for teaching concentration and care because, without those two, you certainly cannot achieve anything worthwhile.


If you are planning to enrol your child in our school for the 2024 academic year, we would like to inform you that the registration process has been ongoing for some time now. However, we regret to inform you that we are unable to recruit new pupils in any of the classes in our national curriculum section except in Primary One. Nevertheless, we are accepting new admissions in all three classes of our Nursery school and in all classes of the Cambridge School. Therefore, if you are interested in enrolling your child in Primary One, Nursery school and or any of the Cambridge classes, we recommend that you register with Miss Joweria at the Front Office as soon as possible to secure a place, as availability is limited.


Term 1 2024 will begin on 30th January 2024. Remember to report on Day 1 because, as a matter of policy, beds are given out on a first come first served basis.

Once again, I thank you for all the support throughout the year. May the all Almighty reward you with a good life and means to continue providing for our children.


Merry Christmas to all our Christian friends and a Happy New Year to all of you. Have a wonderful time with the children.


I look forward to seeing you in January!

Yours,,

Judith Musisi

Head Teacher
