Parting Thoughts
Many thanks to the entire FIS community for making this most unusual year a resounding success despite all of the unexpected challenges, setbacks and disappointments. As evidenced through the stories within this issue of FIS World, we are a resilient community — dedicated, optimistic, caring,
passionate and determined not to let the pandemic diminish our world of opportunities. From the entire FIS World editorial team to all of you, we wish you good health and a fabulous summer with your families.
  About the back page: As part of their Unit of Inquiry on Sharing the Planet: Global Awareness, Grade 5 students in Katherine Webster’s art class inquired into the power of communication through mixed- media poster art, discovering that art can inform people to become aware and active citizens. Bringing their chosen global inquiries and knowledge from the homeroom to the art room, students further investigated their topics, which resulted in a final “Global Statement.” They learned about the art form of mixed-media and were introduced to political artists, and from there began to plan how they were going to express their “Global Statement” through a mixed-media A4 size poster that would eventually become a Global Awareness Grade 5 collective art mural.
