Teacher quote of the week
We would like to introduce you to some new members of staff on our weekly bulletin. This week we have Emily Daire who joined us in August as the new Grade 3 homeroom teacher.
D18 September Learner of the Month
The Student of the Month initiative at D18 has been revamped for the 2023/24 school year. It is now called the Learner of the month and will recognize students from across the school that exhibit skills identified in the IB Learner profile. The focus for September was inquirers. These are students who develop their innate curiosity. They learn research skills and demonstrate independence in learning. Their love for learning will be fostered throughout their lives.
All students that receive this award are nominated by their teachers. Upper elementary school: Ghaida Alharbi (G5), Advik Arora (G6), Vivienne Krawczyk (G7), Yukta Ahuja (G8). High school: Aysha Tekwani (G9), Inci Ada Azgin (G10), Olivier Zieminski (G11), Milda Statkute (G120.
The focus for October will be risk-takers.
