Every year on 23 January, International Handwriting Day is celebrated worldwide. It was initiated in 1977 by the US Writing Instrument Manufacturers Association (WIMA) to highlight the influence of handwriting on our lives. This year, the MYP students had a library lesson dedicated to the day. They were learning about different writing systems, participated in a quiz, practiced their signatures and, to conclude, analysed each other’s handwriting to figure out the personality of the author. The students were open-minded, knowledgeable and enjoyed taking part in this unique activity.
