LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
School Council Final Meeting
Today, the selected representatives of the school community invited our headmistress, heads of departments, and representatives of the teachers’ union of all three departments of our school to the School Council. A lively debate took place covering three themes: mental health, school organization, and relationships. It was remarkable to see how the students prepared, how sovereignly they represented their opinions and presented suggestions and concerns. At the end, the final word was about common solutions to everyday challenges and what the students can do to contribute to the improvement of the school environment and relationships. The headmistress and the other guests said that they wanted to meet several times. They praised the organization and format of the final meeting. They specifically highlighted the maturity of the student representatives and their desire to become more vocal in their classroom communities. You students, are exceptional!
Beach Volley and Tennis Tournament – Carinthia
The Beach Volley and Tennis Tournament in Velden am Wörthersee, Carinthia, was really nice and well prepared. We were welcomed with warmth by the staff and the students. We had a lovely and competitive day, playing tennis and beach volleyball under the hot sun, yet surrounded by the greenery of forests. I believe that all the students did their best and showed a full parade of their sportsmanship qualities during the whole competition, and made some special ties with their Austrian friends. Congratulations to all the competitors! Our students were 1st in the Beach Volley (Boys) and 1st in the Tennis (Mixed).
Turkish Cooking – the way to say goodbye to the Cooking Club for this year
1M Science Day – Water
The 1M students had an exciting Science Day dedicated to water. They conducted experiments to explore sinking and floating, measured water temperature in different states, and discussed the water cycle. They tested objects in water to understand density, discovering that dense objects sink while less dense objects float. Using thermometers, they measured the temperature of ice, liquid water, and steam, learning about heat transfer and different states of matter. They also traced the water cycle from evaporation to condensation, precipitation, and collection, emphasising the importance of water conservation. This hands-on experience sparked their scientific curiosity and laid the foundation for further exploration into the wonders of water.
