Best wishes from CIS for a happy,
academically successful 2014!
IB LEARNER PROFILE OF THE MONTH
The IB Learner Profile focus for this month is ‘Balanced’ – IB
learners "understand the importance of intellectual, physical and
emotional balance to achieve personal well-being for them-
selves and others." At CIS we encourage our students to main-
tain a sense of balance in everything that they do. We offer a wide-range of extra-
curricular activities which help our students to explore success outside of the aca-
demic field and thrive in different environments. Our students are active partici-
pants in swimming, football, basketball, volleyball, track and a variety of other
sports; they are enthusiastic performers, providing us with plays and concerts
throughout the year; they are captivating speakers, engaging in assemblies, de-
bate competitions and international Model UN conferences; and they never cease
to impress us with their seemingly endless list of talents which extend far beyond
the academic realm. All too often students lose a sense of balance as they pro-
gress through school, and at CIS we work hard to ensure that our students are
able to maintain their balance and develop as happy, healthy, and productive
learners. As Euripides wrote: “The best and safest thing is to keep a balance in
your life, acknowledge the great powers around us and in us. If you can do that,
and live that way, you are really a wise man.”

Self-Control Self-control refers to hav-
ing power or control over one’s own actions. Students
without self-control may rely on others to make decisions, go along
with others and not take responsibility for their own actions. When children possess
the skill of self-control, they are more likely to stop and consider others’ points of views and to
accept others’ differences before they act. It is important to select reasonable goals when teaching
self-control. It is best to select one goal at a time. It may be sharing, accepting ‘no’, complying with rules, or dealing ap-
propriately with anger. Some strategies for teaching self-control include: Take a break – encourage children to take a break when they
are feeling angry or upset Teach paying attention – encourage children to observe when
others are talking. This may reduce interruptions. Use appropriate reinforcements – provide consistent, positive
feedback for desired behaviors Use specific activities to teach self-regulation – these can be
role-played or modeled. Practice!

Dear Parents, Please be reminded that all parents should be registered in the office if on campus outside of arrival and dismissal times. Teachers must inform the office staff if they are expecting volunteers in the classroom, and when you sign in, you will be given a visitor’s tag. If the office staff have not received any notification from the teacher regarding your visit, then you will be asked to remain in the office. Should your child forget his/her lunch, homework, PE clothes, swim clothes, etc., please drop these in the office as per the school guide- lines. However, it is hoped that this will be the exception rather than the norm, as students learn to be more responsible for their school belongings. Let’s all work together to continue to follow these scho
