  • MYP 2 students hard at work investigating what urban areas need to provide their residents and what makes a city a great place to live.
We looked into Quality of Life, Public Services, Personal Safety and a range of other factors that combine to support an urban society and then produced a poster to demonstrate how some cities from around the world provide for their residents.
  • In Year 5 we have just begun an exciting new topic called ‘Water For All’. On Tuesday we took the children outside, each carrying a bucket, and we then proceeded to fill them all with water. Once they were 3/4 full we told the children they had to walk 5 times around the grass amphitheater (a distance of 550m).
After a lot of grumbling, splashing, dropped buckets and complaining, the children finally completed their half kilometer challenge. We then talked about all those children and families in the world who do not have clean, running water in their homes and who have to go to nearby rivers and streams to collect water, often walking many kilometres each way.
  • It's been an exciting and ground-breaking week, as we have started off our Secondary school in WIST's magnificent new campus.
Students had two days of initial orientation and on Wednesday school began in earnest. Lessons in the MYP are based on solving real life problems.
On Monday students constructed weight bearing bridges using spaghetti. The bridge had to span a gap of 20 centimeters. The challenge involved effective team work, critical thinking skills and reflection, leading to redesigning the bridge when needed. There were some impressive bridges constructed, with the winning effort managing to hold 12 kilograms suspended from it. The design and quality of workmanship was outstanding. Students later used reflection, a key aspect of the IB Learner Profile, on how they could have improved their design.
Tuesday was taken up with French, ICT, Russian induction lessons and the afternoon with PE activities and Uzbek School.
We believe that we are offering the very best of international education here in Tashkent. The MYP is especially designed to help adolescents adjust to life in the 21st century. It is a difficult time for these young people as they learn to cope with a constantly-changing and increasingly interconnected world. The MYP provides them with the knowledge and skills they need as they grow, helping the students to find a sense of belonging. The MYP emphasizes, through the Learner Profile, the physical, intellectual, social, emotional and ethical development of the whole person.
Be a pioneer, come and join us in this exciting journey!
  • Happy new 2020 year!
We wish you many happy days, creative victories and incredible emotions!

  • WIST opens its doors to its state of the art Secondary school on 6th January!
⠀
We will immediately begin working towards full accreditation in both the IB MYP and the IB Diploma.
⠀
The IB offers a breadth of study that no other curriculum comes close to. For example, courses offered in the IB Diploma include Psychology, Philosophy, Film, Computer Science, and Global Politics, which are not commonly on offer in other programmes.
⠀
In the IB students grow, not only as learners, but as a human being. Creativity, Action, Service puts great importance on emotional and social development by getting students involved in activities outside of the classroom.
⠀
We have had much interest from teachers both abroad and within Uzbekistan, wanting to join our faculty and the recruitment of fully qualified and experienced teachers is now complete. Mr. Steven Armstrong, a professional with almost thirty years experience of school leadership, in the UK, Africa, Asia and Oceana, arrived in Tashkent a month ago to oversee the final preparations for the opening of Secondary.
⠀
•  Mr. Armstrong will be teaching History and will start up the Model United Nations. Our Geography teacher Richard Woodhouse, a UK national, is an experienced and well qualified mountain leader and he will also start off our Duke of Edinburgh Award scheme.
•  The MYP will be led by Dr. Sophia Pantellis, an American, with, vast experience of school leadership in all of the IB programmes.
•  Language and Literature will be taught by Australian national Leigh Key.
•  British national Raman Kushal, an experienced Head of Department, will teach MYP Mathematics.  Mr. Kushal holds the well respected Middle Leaders qualification issued by the National College of School Leadership in the UK.
⠀
We are currently testing students for admission into WIST in January. Places will be limited, so if you are interested in joining us at this exciting phase of our development, please visit or call the school to reserve your place as early as possible to avoid disappointment.

  • The Primary children at WIST enjoyed working with an artist from the Museum of Applied Arts in Tashkent, to create their own pots and whistles.
⠀
They worked on a traditional wheel to make their pots and fashioned their whistles by hand.
Their work has been taken to be fired and will be returned in the new year.

Ученики начальных классов сумели насладиться работой с художником из Музея прикладных искусств, чтобы сделать свои первые глиняные горшочки и свистки.
⠀
Чтобы сделать горшки, они работали на традиционном гончарном круге, а свистки делали вручную.
Все работы отправились на обжиг и вернутся к своим маленьким создателям уже в Новом Году.
