Little Leaders in the Making
On Thursday, June 13, 2019, the ECE children celebrated their accomplishments in our annual Graduation and Awards ceremony. We had been practising shaking hands and posing for photos all week, and when it came time for the real thing, the children all performed perfectly – almost no stage-fright!
Lip Sync Battle
This year, on June 8, the Physical Education Department showcased student skills in a Lip Sync Battle. As our charismatic hosts, Olivia Choi and David Zheng, explained at the beginning of the show, "lip-sync" is a simple concept. A team of students choregraphed, rehearsed and performed a dance, whilst inviting a teacher to "sing" the lyrics. Yes, a simple concept. But one that, without a doubt, it was taken to a high standard.
Exploring P4C in Practice
Philosophy for Children (P4C) is a programme that gives our children the opportunity to think and reason about how themselves and others relate to the world around them.
