LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
On Tuesday, 5th May, the MYP pupils explored the Jesenkova pot (Jesenko Path), to enrich their knowledge of the diverse ecosystems of forests, especially trees. Along with doing research on the man who the path is named after, Dr Fran Jesenko, the pupils had to analyse the numerous aspects of forests. They included finding out about various trees, their fruits and seeds, and how they are utilised for medicine, how and why food webs function, the creation and significance of top soil, and the implicit importance of forests as a whole, amongst other things. Many pupils excelled and showed some great work.
Our pupils have fully immersed themselves into online learning again after one week of the May holidays. As we are approaching the end of the school year they should continue to complete their work regularly and should strive for excellence.
Grades 1 – 3 and grade 8 will do summative assessments in school, other years might be called to school to do some summative assessments, if necessary.
We will ask certain students, whose work is irregular or the standard of which needs raising, to come to school individually and finish particular projects and summative assessments.
Some activities planned for next week:
Service Project Collapsed day for grades 6 &7 on Monday, 11 May
Cultural Day for K1 & K2 on Thursday, 14 May
Reading Badges deadline extended to 1 June
The dates and years which will return to school in May were confirmed yesterday. It is now officially confirmed that on Monday, 18 May, the 1st group of students will return to school, these will be the Kindergarten and year 1, 2 & 3 pupils. Then, on Monday, 25 May, our grade 8 students will also return to school.
I will inform you about the specific procedures and safety measures which will be set in place as soon as we receive the definitive guidelines from the Ministry of Education. In any case, our priority will be the safety and well-being of our students.
