Last weekend was OIS MUN. ~200 students spent all weekend here debating their hearts out. Congratulations to all the student organisers and participants. Thanks also, to Sudha, Megha and all the teacher volunteers. Here's a fantastic video & some photos (courtesy of the press team).
From some of our Artists
For our Visual Arts IBDP students, learning doesn’t just happen within the classroom. We encourage our students to engage with the contemporary art world. Being aware of contemporary art trends is vital to young artists as both a source of inspiration and for the development of their own professional conduct.

Not your regular math activities...
Jack Sparrow hid some treasure on an island. Students had to follow the bearings to locate the treasure.
The Math teachers got their hands dirty as they created all the props themselves and set the stage for a very exciting treasure hunt. The students were completely engaged in the collaborative activity and had great fun while learning! (From Shraddha & Ninad)

Welcome to the 'secondary blog' It has been another action packed week in secondary. We've had rain, more rain, torrential rain, intermittent thunderstorms and despite all this, there has been some fantastic work happening in classrooms all over the building.
This weekend OIS is hosting OIS MUN, students have worked hard to get this conference up and running. We'll report on this and lots more next week... come back and visit :)
The English Department ran a wonderful 'English Week'... there were word jumbles, quotes of the day, book reviews, D.E.A.R (drop everything and read), dress up as a character day, spoken word poetry workshops, 'think on your feet' and many more fabulous activities.
Juhu beach clean-up
Last Saturday 75+ students and 25 teachers volunteered to help clean Juhu Beach. Despite some grim weather, everyone worked together to collect an impressive amount of rubbish. (Photos from Saurabh T)

Welcome Oberoi International School Athletics fans and guests. We have a number of successful sports teams and all the children represent the school with great pride and honour. Oberoi International School believes that a dynamic program of student activities is vital to the educational development of our students, while recognizing that athletic programs are secondary to our academic programs. The goal of these programs is to realize the value of participation without over-emphasizing the importance of winning. The purpose is to develop and improve character traits among the program’s participants. We believe our programs should expand the experiences available to middle and high school students.
It is true that the most memorable moments in sports are those incredible examples of beating the odds through what seems like sheer magic. OIS Leopards train to experience this magic through sports like Basketball, Track and Field, Tennis, Football, Cricket, Volleyball, Badminton, Table Tennis and Swimming.
The athletic calendar comprises of 3 athletic seasons.
Season 1: August 22nd to October 27th, 2016
Season 2: November 07th, 2016 to February 05th, 2017
Season 3: February 06th to April 30th, 2017
This year to accommodate greater number of aspiring athletes we have created two training batches instead of one for a few popular sports.
The school facilitates students who play other sports and train outside the school by registering them with the MSSA (Mumbai School Sports Association) and DSO (District Sports Organisation), providing the documentation and leaves required to participate.
Practice games with other international schools are intermittently scheduled to build camaraderie with other local teams and infuse a sense of non-competitive sportsmanship.
