PYP Cultural Day – Internationalism & Code of Conduct

Today, the PYP had a cultural day devoted to researching internationalism, as well as the school’s code of conduct. Diverse cultures were explored through the mediums of fashion, songs, stories, and games amongst others. 1M celebrated dishes from their different countries, 2M paraded clothing, 3M played games, 4M shared song lyrics in their various languages, while 5M penned stories on how they integrate and cooperate abiding by school rules. The importance of the code of conduct was also discussed, as well as additions to the school rules due to the Covid pandemic, which some relayed in comic strips.

Official Announcement

Announcement Regarding the Start of the School Year*

Dear parents,

We would like to stress that only healthy students can attend school in the upcoming school year. Please take into account the following:

  1. In the last 14 days your child has not been in contact with anyone who has tested positive for the SARS-CoV-2 virus.
  • Your child has not been quarantined.
  • The family doctor or an epidemiologist has not recommended self-isolating in the last 14 days.
  • If your child starts exhibiting any signs or symptoms of the virus or anyone living in the same household tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, you are required to keep them at home.

If your child falls ill showing any signs/symptoms or anyone living in the same household as your child has tested positive for SARS-CoV-2, your child should stay at home and refrain from contact with others. If your child is ill, please contact your family doctor or a doctor-on-call. In case your child tests positive or has been in contact with someone who has tested positive you will receive information and instructions from the epidemiologist.

We recommend your child limits contact with the elderly (i.e. grandparents) and people with chronic illnesses or immune deficiency, since they are more prone to experience a more severe development of the disease.
