TIS SCOOP, How to Survive School?!
By Amira Hazim (8-I)
School is one of the hardest stages in the life of any child, yet it’s the fun part that you’ll miss later. I know that this is nothing like you expected—the amount of homework you get, exams or anything really—but, believe it or not, it’s not as horrible as you think.
Yes, I know that you have taken more than enough terrible school pictures in which you look like an ostrich with braces! And yes, you have this stage where you think that this school thing is getting too monotonous and that it will never end. But, if you really anticipate the life after school to be cool, you are completely mistaken. As time goes on, you have to be more responsible and you are going to have more and more tasks to achieve, so that’s even worse!

TIS SCOOP, Kidzania
By Selina Ramez (G3)
Hi, my name is Selina! Today, I am going to talk about my trip to Kidzania! I went to the airplane and I had so much fun there. We also had a tour in the Jurassic World! There are lots of other places to go. You can also make coca cola, have a show at the theatre or go to the supermarket. It’s like you’re actually buying stuff from there. I suggest you go to Kidzania! I hope you have a fun and nice trip.
TIS SCOOP, LPS Activities - LOTS OF DOTS - SCAVENGER HUNT
By Lower Primary School,
LOTS OF DOTS:
Decorating, fingerprinting, cutting and pasting were some of many artistic and creative activities children of the L.P.S. have enjoyed while creating their own dots.
It wasn’t only looking for the treasure, it also was a great adventure where the L.P.S. little pirates worked in teams to solve many educational puzzles and riddles, find the keys that led them to the treasure chest, and enjoy their victory in a very enjoyable way.

TIS SCOOP, University Visit
By Manal Saleem and Suha Mirza (11-E)
As seniors and juniors, students have a large responsibility in mapping out their future; this is primarily focused upon by choosing fitting universities that will boost them to full potential.
To help them with this never-ending process, the school organizes multiple university visits from around the globe. One such visit occurred recently due to a collaboration with the British Council, bringing forth guests from all over the UK.
In anticipation, the student body rushed to the auditorium to be oriented with the ten universities that flew in. Other visits that arose were of a university from Switzerland as well as several from Lebanon. These institutions bring a wide variety of options from diverse cultures and make it easier for the students’ selection process.

TIS SCOOP, Wake Up Wednesday
By Naama Banaja (12-D),
Wake Up Wednesday is a weekly radio segment that replaces the mundane power-points with something that’s more motivating and energizing.
It was conceptualized and begun by the SLC heads with a nudge from their English teacher. The topics vary every week and also depends on which department is taking the helm. For example, the first broadcast was taken over by the C&I whose topic of choice was to remind the seniors of their university deadlines and for the younger batches to be prepared earlier. I personally helped with the technical aspects on both broadcast by playing or arranging any media file needed. This project has received mixed reviews, but mostly positive especially from the staff, students, and the head of Senior School herself.
What is the SLC?
By Rima Rabie Aladib (12-D)
It’s that time of the year again, where we get back into our academic routines and re-integrate school into our life. To ease the stress of your high school life, the batch of 2018 founded the SLC (Student Leadership Community). The SLC was specifically created to help the students feel more involved in school decisions and activities and I am confident to say that we will achieve great things this year, perhaps even more than we previously did.
Most of the members would agree that the SLC has helped them one way or another, from overcoming extreme stage fright to making new friends and finally combining to create a tiny community for ourselves. Not only is this experience an asset for your college application but for your personal life too!

الزمان هو أحد أيام الألفية الثالثة، المكان في إحدى المختبرات العلمية المدرسية، فجأة دخل الحسين بن الحسن ابن علي بن سينا، نظر إلي، وتوجه إلي مباشرة، كنت في غاية الاضطراب والسعادة! نعم إنه هو الشيخ الرئيس ابن سينا أعظم أطباء عصره والعصور اللاحقة، اقترب مني وابتسم ابتسامة تدل على مزيج من الفخر والفرح والتواضع.
- أهلاً وسهلاً بعالمنا الجليل، كيف حالك يا سيدي؟
- بخير، في أحسن حال والحمد لله، ولكن كيف عرفتني؟
