This week will wrap up our first term. Achievements many!. Progress huge!. Attitude is, we are ready for huge challenges. This week also saw us through with our Christmas celebration. The students have been finding pockets in their lesson schedule, where they could attend to their planning for the Christmas celebration. Every little time they could find, they tried to get the cards, pictures and decorations up. They even designed their own Christmas Cards. They planned under the guidance of their Chairman Chandra, all the activities. The school took a step back and just guide them with the planning. On Christmas day every thing that the kids planned turned our so well. We as a school are so proud of our students. They are a force to be reckoned!
One Christmas day itself, posed just a few challenges, the students were so confident with their planning. They had planned the arrival of the visitors and their greetings and welcome notes. The dancing and the singing was as planned and the students did as best as they could. Our Chairman Chandra gave a moving and touching speech to our guest and students. He remembered his speech and delivered with confidence. We also had a potluck and all the parents brought a variety of food and this added a touch of meaning to our Christmas celebration of caring and sharing. No Christmas was complete without the grace of Santa Claus. His surprise visit and he gave a happy speech and shared gift for all the children. Overall the Christmas celebration was a huge success and thanks to our Chairman Chandra and and trusty elves to make this a memorable event. Another huge success for our “For Student By Student” project. More will be shared about this project when the the Chairman of this project will share his report.
Students finished reading Alice in Wonderland. They took a comprehension test on the book and most of them did very well showing that they understood it well. This will prepare them to write their descriptive essays. They also practiced reading aloud turn by turn. This will also give them confidence to read in public.
Students finished reading The Wizard of Oz. They were working on comprehension questions throughout our entire reading. This was important for them as they would have forgotten all the small details if we had not. For some of the kids this was the first time they were reading this story. They truly enjoyed the story and amazed with the ending.
This week we began Greek civilization unit. We prepared their notebooks so that when they come back from the break, they will be ready to fill in everything and work on the activities. We also began working on a timeline of all the major events that happened during the time of the Greeks. This worked as a preview of what they will be learning when we come back from their holiday.
Overall this week has been a busy week with the Christmas celebration. They did not have time for Chess and award for the Star Of The Week was postponed when the school opens. We will see all parents tomorrow when they pick their kids. We will have a meaningful discussion and till we meet again after the holidays stay safe and enjoy your selves. School reopens o the 6th January 2020. Merry Christmas and and happy new year. Singapore Genius School Krabi wishes you a very happy and prosperous year in 2020.
