STUDENT SUPPORT

STUDENT SUPPORT PROGRAMS
The learning Support program at EIS focuses on providing support in the three fundamental areas: Support in English as an Additional Language, Learning Support, and Psychological Support.
EAL SUPPORT
Students who at the time of their application do not meet the required language proficiency level for their age and grade may be admitted, provided parents agree that the student attends additional support sessions as required. Students who need additional support will work with our language specialists to develop their English language proficiency within lessons and/or in pull-out sessions. The duration of this support will be determined by members of our language team.
OUR AFTERSCHOOL
ACTIVITY PHILOSOPHY
Exupery International School’s ASAs are designed to integrate productivity with joyful exploration and memorable, hands-on experiences. Our program roster runs the gamut with regards to specialization and fields of interest, which are described below:
STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Arts, and Mathematics) ASAs. STEAM represents an ideology and way of life for designers, architects, 3D modelers, and far more, seamlessly blending all of its separate subjects to merge aesthetics with logic;

Digital Literacy ASAs are intended to aid students in orienting the worlds of business, online content production, and computer-based efficiency;

Health and Sport ASAs, as the name implies, are based in movement and physical effort, with the ultimate aim of fostering good health, physical wellness, and resilience;

Fine Arts and Music ASAs rely heavily on creativity, artistic discovery, and the development of well-rounded and cultured students;

Mastery of Communication ASAs enables students to lead, inspire, and unite others with the power of spoken presentation and body language alike.
STUDENT CLUBS
CHESS
“Chess isn’t always competitive. Chess can also be beautiful. It was the board I noticed first. It’s an entire world of just 64 squares. I feel safe in it. I can control it.” These wonderful words were uttered by Beth Harmon, the central character in Walter Trevis’s fascinating novel, The Queen’s Gambit. It is easy to relate to Beth’s love for the game. We love it too, and a great many of our students enjoy playing chess as an after-school activity, learning strategy and tactics – not to mention refining their logical and creative thinking processes!

Chess can be a series of simple moves, or an extremely complicated grand strategy. Either way, it is about learning to calculate and evaluate the moves of your opponent – and looking as far ahead as you can. It is a truly beautiful game – as much an art as it is a science.

Japanese Culture Club

Japan is often seen as a mysterious place, with its many alphabets and unique way of life. The Japanese culture club seeks not only to give its members a foundation in Japanese language, looking at both the written and spoken form, but also an introduction to the many different things that make up everyday life in Japan. 

We will learn about different anime, cultural practices, manga, festivals, food and much more. Come and learn whether it’s better to be “kowaii” or “kawaii”, why one language needs three different alphabets and ultimately celebrate the weird and wonderful place that is Japan. よろしくお願いします!

Science experiments
Science Experiments Club objectives are to raise children´s interest in the world of science through experimentation and direct observation of everything around them. The club helps children become participative and actively involved in the learning process. The experience includes creative techniques, and develops student’s imagination. 

Science experiments stimulate critical thinking skills, help with analysis, and questioning, as well as encourage observations and experimentation. One hour of activity weekly, including an explanation, an experiment and different hands-on activities.

Mosaic Club

If you look closely, mosaic is a part of our lives from an early age - collecting toys, rock shelling on the beach and so much more. In other words, it is a natural part of any person's life.

The Mosaic Club is about participating in such activity by creating artworks. Participants design unique decorations using various techniques and materials under the guidance of a professional mosaic expert. This is a great form of artistic expression and fine motor skills development.
Drummers Club
Drumming is a fun, energizing, and rewarding activity that allows kids to learn how to coordinate body and mind, develop a sense of rhythm and learn discipline in a fun way. Besides that, it's an excellent cardio workout. 

The Drum Club offers interactive musical training on the basic principles of playing percussion instruments on a weekly basis. They not only teach the basics of musical creativity, but also teamwork, interaction, and communication.

Cooking Inspiration

Food nowadays has been transformed from a primary human need into the basis of health and longevity, and has even become a form of modern art and a means of self-expression. We are what we eat. As our tastes influence our personality, our personality is reflected in the food we love. 

Cooking skills have become a benefit that would help a young person not only to become independent but also to monitor health conditions, establish communication and social skills and even explore the world's authentic cultures through gastronomic tourism.

TRIPS
Latvia's State Forests Nature Park in Tervete
On our trip to Latvia's State Forests Nature Park in Tervete, Preschoolers explored the forest, played active games and simply enjoyed themselves in nature. One of the highlights was meeting the beloved characters from the fairy tale "The Tale of Sprīdītis," brought to life as wooden sculptures. The students also enjoyed the hiking trails and ended their adventure by visiting the park's largest playground. So the day brimmed with lively adventures and a lot of fun for our Preschoolers, making their studies of nature and fairy-tale characters in class more relatable and exciting.
National History Museum of Latvia
Our High School students participated in a discussion at the "Constitution100+" exhibition opening at the National History Museum of Latvia. The exhibition is devoted to the creation of the Latvian Constitution, its historical background, its most controversial articles, and the numerous ways it affects us to the present day.

The exhibition was interactive, a great way to stimulate discussion. After they had experienced the various exhibits, our students were able to put questions to the museum historians and to members of Saeima, the parliament of the Republic of Latvia.
Grade 4: trip to York
In our final unit ‘Where we are in place and time’ we visited to York in the UK. We were looking at how past civilizations have influenced modern society, with a key focus on the systems and technologies that they invented. We chose York as there are aspects of Roman, Viking and Medieval civilizations, still present within the current city.
We visited the Yorkshire Air Museum to explore the evolution of flight, the Jorvik Centre to look at life in Viking York, and finally the Yorkshire Museum for an insight into Roman and medieval times. The students really enjoyed this experience, and had the opportunity to interact with people and develop their English language skills. As treat at the end of the trip, students went to a local Chinese restaurant. They interacted with the staff and ordered their own meals.

Australia
EIS's sixth and seventh graders went to Australia! Our students did everything from sleeping overnight in an aquarium to touring local schools. And, of course, they had several up-close and personal encounters with Australia's famous inhabitants: kangaroos, sharks, and more!
Munich
The EIS trip to Munich, Germany was a tremendous opportunity for our students in Grades 2, 3, and 4, as it offered an in-depth portrait of one of Europe’s most inventive and dynamic nations. At the BMW Museum, students witnessed the birth and continual evolution of
an industrial giant, while also gaining first-hand experience with the components that comprise our modern automobiles. Students also visited the Deutsches Museum,
the worldwide leader in science and technology exhibits, as well as a Sea Life Museum and planetarium. Our students were overwhelmed with the ingenuity, sense of wonder, and emergent technologies on display!
Croatia Trip
Our Grade 5 students had an exciting trip to Croatia. They explored historic sites in Split, including the famous Monument Ninski with its unique design and historical importance. They also visited the renowned National Park Krka, home to a spectacular waterfall. The adventure continued with thrilling water activities like kayak and SUP, as well as a boat ride to admire the beautiful coast. The students also had a great time at a fun park in Biograd na Moru, enjoying exciting rides and games. The trip was a perfect blend of history, nature and bonding with classmates.
a field Trip to iceland
Since May 21, our Grade 4 students have been on a trip to Iceland to learn about energy and sustainability of urban systems. From February to April, Grade 4 students delved into these topics as part of their Unit of Inquiry that has a transdisciplinary theme "Sharing the Planet." It is called transdisciplinary because teachers work together to prepare learning activities that all focus on exploring the same topic while developing different skills.
After such a productive unit, students embark on a journey to a country that has one of the most unique ecosystems in the world and is at the forefront of the sustainable living movement.
