Have you ever dreamt of being a little fly on your child’s classroom wall for a day? Well, you can be one every day thanks to the Primary blog!
During this half term, students have learned about microbes and rainforests and took Nessie and Panda on exciting outings. On the serious side, they wrote book reports, biographies and autobiographies. But the highlight was definitely Matthieu and Alexandra’s photography and art workshops. Children got hands-on experience in the workings of a darkroom and developed their own photos. They also discovered that nature remains the biggest inspiration for artists young and old.
Our Seconde students are back from SAIMUN (St Andrew’s International Model United Nations) in Dublin after an exhausting (and fun!) week of debating. This is the fourth and last MUN conference that students from the Section have attended this year. The others were PAMUN, THIMUN and FiMUN.
MUN conferences offer an excellent opportunity to expand, develop and put into practice English language skills, on an informal as well as a formal level. All the associated activities such as preparing resolutions, lobbying and debating are carried out in English and a high standard is demanded in the formulation of ideas, whether in writing resolutions or in arguing and debating with fellow students.
