As of August 2021, SSIS will proudly publish a clear academic program in the areas of Mathematics and Literacy. The information will be public and available on our website for easy access. As a parent, you have every right to be clear on what your child is learning at every step of the way, and as a school we value and appreciate your trust. On this note, I cannot end except with a great, big thank you and my sincere gratitude to our teachers who have jumped in whole-heartedly to support the work on these areas with enthusiasm and excitement. THANK YOU.
