    bulletin, we are in the midst of hosting the MUN confer-

    ence. The quality of student involvement, engagement and

    vigorous debate in the various committees is extremely

    impressive from all the delegates. We are hosting MUN

    following international schools: AES New Delhi, AIS Dhaka,

    Yokohama International School, American School in Japan,

    Bangkok Patana School, United World College Singapore,

    Brent International School.

    These type of events cannot occur without the support of

    our ISM parent community who are housing the delegates

    during the conference. We would like to extend a big

    thanks to all families that have agreed to open their homes

    and house a visiting delegate for the conference. It is verymuch appreciated.

    The General Assembly session will be on from 8:00 A.M.

    tomorrow and is open for the ISM community to come in

    and watch what happens. The GA will be held at the new

    3rd floor Lofthouse.

    2nd Season opening event: Last Friday, November 11th,

    was the start of our 2nd season matches for HS teams and

    we had support school wide from students and parents to

    cheer on the teams as they began the season. Thanks very

    much to the Bearcat Den ladies who ran the BBQ/Drinks

    stall at the HS field and a huge thanks to Shannon Grabow

    and Amanda Pekin who promoted the event and helped

    with all the activities to keep the younger kids and parents


    Well done also to all our teams who kicked off the season

    with some excellent results and very close matches.
