Citizenship Day & Collaborative Learning

October 6, 2017

If you were looking for an answer to what makes an international school such a good educational choice for your children, then you need look no further than ‘Citizenship Day’.

The theme for the Secondary School Citizenship Day in Term 1a was ‘European Day of Languages’ combined with ‘International World Sight Day’. Wearing House Colours, the students worked together in their Houses to solve puzzles and answer quizzes in German, French and Spanish, learned tongue twisters in Turkish, Chinese, and Korean, made Japanese origami models, and wrote messages in braille, to name just a few of the activities organised, collecting valuable house points along the way. There was lots of laughter but also importantly collaborative learning with plenty of opportunity for the students to develop their leadership skills, communication skills, and teamwork skills – important skills for the next generation of graduates.
