LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
On Friday 18th November we went to visit The House of Experiments. After the bus ride to the city centre, we had a short stroll to reach our destination. Upon arrival friendly staff greeted us and we immediately went to explore. And in no time, it was our time to say goodbye and go back to school.
Time really flies when you are having fun.
On Thursday, 17th November, the PYP (KG – grade 5) and MYP gave presentations to parents about the different features and aspects of the IB Philosophy. PYP students guided us through the whole inquiry-based learning process and the development of the 5 essential elements of the PYP: knowledge, concepts, skills, attitudes and action, while the MYP students prepared stands with 12 different topics covering everything from ATL skills, assessment, differentiation, learner profile attributes, inquiry cycle, etc. Parents appeared to be satisfied by what they saw.
The second group of 6M students visited the Home for the Elderly in Bežigrad today as part of their Service as Action. The students and the elderly had to be excellent thinkers and communicators since they played various brain games such as sudoku, memory, battleship, crosswords… Both the students and the elderly had fun and enjoyed each other’s company.
This week, it was apparent that something exciting was happening on Wednesday. Instead of students, many witches, skeletons, vampires, mummies, spiders, and other scary creatures attended school. Students prepared for the Halloween party the week before and created various arts and crafts; our sewing circle made Trick or Treat bags. Also, the parents and PTA put immense effort into decorating the classrooms, including Piñatas, not to mention the fantastic Halloween party packed with games, food, and fun. “Trick or Treat” resonated through the school hallways, dome, and auditorium.
