The teachers (above) joined everybody else in dressing up for Book Week
Wow, what a week it has been. Book Week has really brought out the creative side in everyone: students, staff and of course yourselves (yes we know you helped make many of the costumes and helped with creating the book covers).
Across the school we have seen students ‘Drop Everything and Read’ each day, secondary staff venture into primary to read to PYP classes and a great increase in borrowing of books from the library. We even had a book swap where students could exchange books.
On Thursday we had World Book Day dress up, with PYP parading across campus in their amazing costumes. Special mention should be made of the secondary teachers, who stepped out of their comfort zone and dressed up: who will ever forget Ms Arora as Cruella De Vil, Mr Anderson as a green crayon, or Ms Kinsey as the Gruffalo. Thanks for all the efforts of those who took part: especially Mr Phil who brought the Highway Rat to life.
Friday saw the culmination of Book Week in the form of the PYP share time, with competitions and prizes. Thanks again for everyone’s efforts.
Next week we have MAP tests for students in P4-6. These tests are non-curricular tests which replace our previous ISA tests. We wish students well, but remind everyone that no revision is required.
Next week also sees U11 cricket and U19 basketball on Tuesday. On Friday the primary swim gala will take place at SCIS, with secondary being on Saturday: we wish our teams well. We will also have our first Mountain Bike OP trip leaving from Arusha Campus on Saturday: thanks to Ms Larpent for her organisation of this event.
I wish you all a happy and relaxing weekend,
