 News 

 

Yearbook photos  

Yearbook photos for each D18 Class of 2024 are now largely complete with just Grade 12 remaining to be completed. Any students or teachers that missed out on the opportunity to have their individual photo taken will have another opportunity on Wednesday morning. Please note that all photos will also be available for purchase from the photographer when the yearbook is published so alternative group photos can also be arranged.  

 

IB Info week – parents evening  

The administration wishes to invite the parents of our Grade 10 students to an information evening in Dembego 18 on Thursday, March 21st at 16:30.
The purpose of this meeting is to ensure that parents are informed of the diploma program options at IAS, the key differences, the costs etc. You will have the opportunity to raise any additional questions you might have with school administrators. 

 

After school clubs 

Our staff run a variety of after-school clubs in both buildings, and it is high time we shared them with our wider community. After-school clubs will be featured in the bulletin for the next three weeks. This week we focus on some of the Wednesday clubs in D12. 

 

Traveler’s Club 

By Miss Beata Bilous  

Traveler’s Club offers a range of engaging activities for the kids to participate in after school. During the first semester, children went on a virtual tour to Austria and visited the State of California in the USA. They found out lots of interesting facts and fascinating trivia by playing quizzes and fun games. They were watching videos, depicting the unique animals of these regions and their diverse landscapes and indigenous cultures, sometimes dating back thousands of years. During the classes, children were also creating cultural crafts, for example the masks for the Day of the Dead festivities celebrated in Mexico. They also took part in an orienteering game, during which, using maps and compasses, we looked for treasures hidden somewhere on the playground of our school.  

During the next semester, we will create more crafts inspired by various cultures and countries, for example Japanese origami or Mexican piñatas. With sunnier weather on the way, I also plan to organize more outdoor activities such as nature walks or orienteering games with a geographical or cultural twist. 

 

Kindness Club 

By Miss Emily Daire 

This year in Kindness Club, we have been learning and practicing ways to promote and spread kindness throughout our school environment. We have read books and had open dialogues about how our emotions can affect how we feel and react to situations. We discussed and brainstormed strategies to handle those big emotions.  

Most recently, in Kindness Club, students have actively participated in creating a positive school environment by making bulletin boards that promote kindness and positive thinking. We will continue to work on spreading kindness in the Kindness Club in the coming weeks by coming up with more student-led projects and ideas that help create a positive and welcoming environment for every student at school.   

   

Games Club 

By Natalia Slodzinka 

In Games Club the children choose from a variety of games, such as: checkers, snakes and ladders, creating pictures using geometric shapes, miniature bowling, and various board games. The club teaches them to respect rules, take turns, and accept winning and losing with a smile. Some games help with fine motor skills or develop imagination. It is also meant to be a relaxing time with friends at the end of the school day. Sometimes the club is aligned with a holiday or special topic, for example Valentine’s Day Bingo. 

 

Yoga and Mindfulness Club 

By Veronica Krawiec 

During yoga and mindfulness club at D12, students participate in a variety of activities to help them move their bodies, release their negative emotions, and calm down. During this club students can expect yoga movement games, yoga stories, stretching, guided relaxation, mindful drawing/coloring, positive affirmations, deep breathing exercises, and strategies for calming down and dealing with big emotions. By the end of the club each week, I hope that students leave feeling relaxed, positive, and remember our special phrase: “Peace Begins with Me” 

 

Art Club 

By Agnieszka Zalewska  

During Art Club, students learn how to draw step – by – step. They watch instructional videos and use templates that are adjusted to their level and age. So far this school year, students created many pictures. They drew animals and different fairy tale characters. They also made themed drawings for Halloween, Christmas, and Valentine’s Day. In the second semester, students will be creating pictures for St. Patrick’s Day, Easter, Earth Day, and many more. 

Students really benefit from seeing drawings happen in a simple and logical order of progression. They need to learn that when they start with a familiar shape and add details in a way that makes sense, they have a pretty good chance of setting up their drawing to come out the way they want, and it might be even easier than they originally thought it was. 

  

Kg ASL Club 

By Jagoda Danieluk 

We started the Kindergarten ASL club by discussing who and why would need to communicate without using their voice. We considered how hearing people could benefit from learning sign language and what are times in the students’ lives when they could sign instead of talking. The first signs we learned were letters and then everyday words. After growing our vocabulary, we moved on to learning about sentence structure and building simple sentences with words we knew. Currently we are working on broadening our vocabulary even further with more thematic signs and signing more complex sentences.
