About the Australian Mathematics Competition

 

The Australian Mathematics Competition (AMC) was introduced in Australia in 1978 as the first Australia-wide mathematics competition for students. It has become the largest single event on the Australian education calendar, allowing students to attempt the same tasks on the same day in over 30 countries around the globe.

Running since 1978, the AMC is for students of all standards. Students are asked to solve 30 problems in 60 minutes (Years 3–6) or 75 minutes (Years 7–12). The problems are designed to test mathematical thinking rather than focus on calculations themselves, thus such questions are designed so that they can be answered just as quickly without a calculator as with one. The problems get more difficult through the competition, so that at the end they are challenging to the most gifted students. Students of all standards will make progress through the problems, and also be challenged along the way.

PISCT had 56 candidates from grades 3 to 12 registered to attend this well-known competition. Students first given personal information forms to fill and then started the math competition at 8:30.

We are looking forward to hearing good news about our students results.

Pak- Japanese interactive class was held on 27th September 2017 at PISCT.

Thirteen students of the Japanese school in Tehran accompanied by their principal Mr. Kenji Shimizu and four teachers including Mr. Oda Masahiro arrived at PISCT at 8:45 am. The event was coordinated by Mr. Oda Masahiro from Japanese school and Miss Omid Vafadari from PISCT.

 

Our students were selected from grade 3 to 9 as per criteria given by the Japanese school. Students of both schools introduced themselves to each other. Mr. Oda distributed colourful origami papers and Japanese students started teaching ORIGAMI to their PISCT counterparts by making yachts, missiles, fish, etc. and in the second round, all students participated in an Art Activity, as well. This interactive class was thoroughly enjoyed by the students and strengthened the bond between Pakistan and Japan.

Last week our students had fantastic week because we were learning about dinosaurs. All the children were very excited to do their art work and dino worksheets! Every day we read our dinosaur books and we learned a lot about fossils, meat-eaters and leaf-eaters. We brought many dinosaurs for our class display and the children were glad to play with them.

Spelling Bee 2017 was held on Tuesday September 14 in Pakistan International School and College Tehran. The buzzing library was packed with pupils- the spellers and their fellow classmates who were cheering for them.
 
The competition was held in two sections including the junior group- grades V, VI and VII- as well as the seniors- grades VIII, IX,X, XI, Ol, O2, AS and A2. As almost all of the spellers had tried hard to prepare themselves for this spelling challenge, there was  a considerable number of nail-biting rounds which pictured a general victory for PISCT. Eventually, Sara Qasim and David Cumba from class VIII and Maheen Safdar from O-Level 1 won the three ranks in the senior section  while Vimbainashe Mazenenga class VI, Fatima Aziz and Iffah Khadijah Hissmmudin -both from grade VII- won the first three junior ranks.
 
Following the previous years' tradition, the whole event was coordinated by Miss Neda. The honorable pronouncers of 2017 Spelling Bee were Miss Omid, Miss Nazanin and Miss Neda.

Cultural Activities in PISCT
07 Feb 2017

Sumitomo Corporation Iran Limited is a renowned International company with regional office in Iran and head office at Tokyo, Japan. Mr. Tanaka the Managing Director arranged a cultural orientation session for introduction of the Japanese culture and fine arts to the students of Pakistan International School and College Tehran.  A special team arrived from Tokyo and demonstrated to junior and senior sections the typical arts and skills of Japan to students under supervision and coordination of PISCT staff. The session was wonderfully coordinated and all students took part in the activities and enjoyed the day.

The program was designed for all the students of school and almost everybody got a chance to learn about the fabulous arts and traditions of Japan.

The junior school kids were introduced to Origami. Origami is the art of paper folding, which is often associated with Japanese culture. The Japanese team also distributed typical Japanese paper made toys to the children of junior section. The nursery and Kindergarten students were given material to make fascinating origami toys. The junior section was also given a chance to play a traditional Japanese game which was enjoyed by all the students.

After the Origami session the senior section was offered to learn and practice the Japanese calligraphy (shodo) which is a form of calligraphy, or artistic writing, of the Japanese Language.  Students were introduced to the different styles of writing Japanese language. The Japanese team provided the students with special paper made of rice and inks to write on with. Students enjoyed writing their names in Japanese.

In learning about the Japanese traditional clothing the team introduced Kimono which is a type of clothing which is being used for ages. Although in the current century modern and western clothing is popular yet people of Japan still like to wear traditional on important occasions.

Senior students were given opportunity to wear the costumes.  First there was a session in the yard of the school where all the senior section learnt how to wear a kimono. The Japanese instructors also guided about the difference between ladies and gents kimonos. After that the students of junior and senior section were asked to try wearing the costumes themselves. Japanese kimonos are wrapped around the body, sometimes in several layers, and are secured in place by sashes with a wide obi to complete it.

The meaning of the color white is purity innocence, wholeness and completion. White contains an equal balance of all the colors of the spectrum, representing both the positive and negative aspects of all colors. Its basic feature is equality, implying fairness and impartiality neutrality and independence.

During color day, we also have different activities. The little kids come to school dressed in white and were eager to participate in the day’s activities.

The classroom was decorated according to the color theme and white color objects were shown to the children, who identified them correctly. Children were engaged in a fun activity of sticking cotton on sheep template, which they enjoyed a lot!
