Dear Parents,

Today marks the end of the third quarter of the school year. The year is flying by and
we are earnestly making plans for all those end of year activities, while at the same
time also making plans for the next school year.

For our seniors, next Wednesday is the start of their final school exams. These are a
very good rehearsal for their actual IB/AP exams. A good lead up to these exams has
been shown to be excellent preparation for the IB exams, which start on Tuesday May
4. Having completed all their college applications, extended essays and IB internal
assessments, it would be a shame if seniors do not perform in their school exams or
even worse their IB exams. We sometimes hear a few rumors about this time of the
year from seniors who have already been accepted to their university of choice, that
their IB exams do not matter. This can not be more from the truth. Universities ask us
for final transcripts and have been known to withdraw offers where clearly a student
has not completed their senior year to the best of their ability.

A favorite proverb of mine states that “dreams become a reality when we take
action”. For our seniors specifically, but for all of the high school students at ISM,
now is the time to take stock of our individual goals/dreams for this year. What can
be achieved to make our dreams become a reality before the end of the school year
comes around? Please take some time over the spring break holiday to talk to your
child to reflect on what their goals were for the year and how they can be achieved.

I would like to add a very big thank you to all the parents who came to the HS Parent
Coffee on Tuesday to discuss the engaging topic of the Internet and Social Networking
Sites. We had a very good discussion and I hope these discussions will continue at
home with your child.

I wish all seniors the best of luck for their exams. Have a great weekend.

Kind regards,

William R. S Brown Michael Dickinson

ISM European Community Lunch
Dear IFFD Volunteers:

I would like to thank you all for your generous support of both food and time at the IFFD. Although it turned out the provided table
space was not as great as your contribution, I still believe it was a big success for all of us.
By the way, some parents asked after that event if we could get together regularly as "ISM European Community" and get to know
each other, exchange and share information. Thus I decided to volunteer and to organize a lunch.
Time: 11:30am, March 17th (Wed)
Venue: Restaurant Chesa Bianca, 7431 Yakal St. San Antonio Village, Makati City
I picked up this Swiss restaurant run by Saentis group this time because they were so generous to give us 15kg of free sausages for
the IFFD. I hope as many of you as possible find the chance meaningful and join the lunch! We can discuss then further about things
such as how often, where and when we want to meet, and who'd organize the next.
Please let me know about your attendance by March 15 due to table reservation.

Dear Parents:

Every year we have to deal with the administrative burden of trying to collect from parents the $1000 Re-enrollment
Deposit. This is difficult for many parents, especially those whose fees are paid by the sponsoring company, and more
difficult still for the school trying to collect from parents, especially those who are not sure of their circumstances.

This year we shall try something different. There will be no re-enrollment deposit. Instead, we shall expect all
departing families to complete the WITHDRAWAL NOTIFICATION FORM on or before May 15th. Failure to do
so will lead to a deduction of $1,000.00 from the Facilities Upgrade Deposit.

As I am sure you understand, we at school face considerable pressure from families applying to enter their children into
ISM. We have to establish the May 15th deadline in order for us to be fair to those families on our waitlist. The earlier you
can tell us that you are leaving school, the sooner we can provide clear answers to in-coming families.

Sincerely Yours,
David Toze

There are many reasons why parents today enroll their children to the 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens. Teenage life
today is techno-centric and highly influenced by the kind of media they are exposed to. They live in an interactive world,
and spend more time online than ever before. Recent events concerning teenagers reveal that indeed there is a need for
a stronger values education. Parents feel concerned about the kind of friends and activities their children have. Parents
want to be more confident about the future of their children, and most of all, they would like to see their children become
tomorrow's leaders in their field.
Sow an act...reap a habit; Sow a habit...reap a character;
Sow a character...reap a destiny

The 7 Habits of Highly Effective Teens Workshop aims to help teens gain greater control of their lives, and improve
relationships with family and friends. The 7 Habits workshop helps teens increase self-confidence and self-esteem in the
midst of peer pressure. It teaches them how to make smarter, proactive decisions. The workshop helps them define their
values and what matters most to them. It also shows them how to find balance between school, work, friends, and
everything else.
What to Expect:
• Interaction with 7 Habits Youth Champions
• Developmental Games
• Experiential Learning Activities
• Videos, Skits and Role Plays
