This week has felt a little quiet in Secondary due to the D2s being on exam leave. This will all change on Monday when we start the final examinations for our almost-graduates. To get us ready we were visited by the International Baccalaureate this week, who complemented us on our preparations and systems. I am sure we all join together in wishing the D2 students all the best for their exams over the next three weeks.
Please remember that the examinations take place in S21 (Maths) and S22 (I&S/English), so we request all students and parents to be as quiet as possible in this area of the school. Exams normally start at 08.00 and may go through to 16.00.
In PYP and MYP daily life continues, with lessons and CCAs as normal. On Wednesday P4/5 and M1 came together for a presentation by Erik Anders Henell (Maja and Molly’s dad) about their experiences during the Nepal earthquake – being exactly three years ago to the day on 25 April 2015. This talk linked to P4/5s unit on natural disasters and M1s on plate tectonics. To follow up, the P4/5s led share-time on Friday; presenting their knowledge of earthquakes, volcanic eruptions, tsunamis, hurricanes, droughts and floods. We all now feel prepared for anything.
P6 have been working hard on research and preparation for their exhibition, with visits to various offices and places around Arusha. We wish them well in their work and look forward to an excellent exhibition evening on Tuesday 15 May.
This weekend will see the Duke of Edinburgh’s International Award students trekking off into the distance on their final expedition. We wish them and the staff (Miss Amanda, Mr Emond, Mr Tyler and Mr Bowen) well and hope the rain stays away for their two day hike.
Have a great weekend,
