Hallowe’en celebrations were in full swing on Friday this week (above)
Value #3 – A holistic and diverse portfolio of learning experiences
This week began with a visiting artist in the DP Art class. Ms Sue’s friend Carol, a wonderful South African artist, spoke to the students about curating their own art exhibitions and how an artist works through that process. Do you have some experience or expertise you can share with our students? If so, please let us know!
On Tuesday all students were introduced to a very busy and diverse portfolio of CCA activities – what a great group of local experts, teachers, and students we have! I might even want to join a few CCAs myself to work on my Swahili and my golf game.
Value #6 – The ambition of students to demonstrate initiative and take on leadership roles.
Our brand new secondary Student Government met for the first time this week. Some of their initial goals are to improve communication between students, staff, and administration to support the well-being of all members of the community. They are also very passionate about finding ways to inspire everyone on campus to live our UWC Values – keep an eye out for initiatives relating to these values! As our Student Government is a new initiative, they are very aware that they are setting up the systems and procedures for how the Student Government will function in the coming years and are excited by the challenge.
Value #9 – A healthy lifestyle and active pursuits.
Every day after school the secondary students have had the chance to hone their skills in the various disciplines in Athletics to prepare for our upcoming tournament. An impressively dedicated and talented group of teachers is out there each day to help.
Value #10 – The happiness and well-being of our community
Due to how busy everyone is with both on-and-off-campus activities, Halloween celebrations were somewhat limited this year. This did not stop a majority of Secondary students from participating in our costume parade. What a fun and creative collection of costumes on display!
