Students on the Degerloch Campus had a wonderful afternoon of sharing their learning at the Grade 5 Health Fair.
Students worked so hard on their research, boards and presentation and we are so proud of their efforts! Sadly, we could not include parents at this year's Health Fair however, they were not excluded altogether as students were asked to give a live presentation at home while their parents assessed them using the rubric!

In Spanish, Grade 8 students are learning about their neighborhood and how to give and follow directions. Our lovely intern Silvia organized a scavenger hunt for them to practice their skills. The students had to solve problems and were given directions for where to find the next clue. It was a great success and the students had a great time!

Sindelfingen Campus students are focusing on how they are being ‘responsible’ and ‘organized’ in school and at home. Students are keeping their classroom and storage cubbies tidy by purchasing storage units from IKEA and had a very interesting time trying to assemble them! They had lots of fun and learnt that assembling furniture without written instructions can be very challenging, but easier when you have a friend to help you.
