Year 6

Welcome to Year 6 Class

We are looking forward to an exciting year of challenging and interesting learning that will prepare us for our next adventure.

The final year of primary school is always a special time of consolidation and growth. Year 6 students enjoy the culmination of their years of primary schooling, taking on leadership roles and enjoying opportunities to represent the school in a variety of ways. At the same time they are busy preparing themselves to move onwards and upwards to further education in secondary schools both here in Uganda and further afield.

Year 6 at Ambrosoli International School is a year in which to develop independence, resilience and responsibility, so as to meet the future in top form. Our students are given every opportunity to grow and explore creatively and mindfully; developing as confident, internationally minded learners.

Diane Vuletich – Year 6 Ishasha Teacher

Kiaora, I am Diane Vuletich and I come from New Zealand. I have had the great pleasure of working at Ambrosoli International School since 2015. It has been my first adventure teaching outside of New Zealand and I couldn’t have landed in a better spot!  Prior to this position, I taught for 10 years at an inner city intermediate school in Auckland, firstly as a specialist Textiles and Design teacher, then as a specialist English teacher, and finally as a specialist Math teacher. Before that, I taught in general primary schools in Auckland.

I am delighted to call Kampala my home and greatly enjoy living in my local neighbourhood and exploring the beautiful Ugandan countryside beyond. Outside of school I like travelling and meeting new people. I also enjoy art, crafts, poetry and music.
