Students in Key stage 2 have been finding more about their community; what defines a community and what makes for a thriving community. They have found that there are many people who work to make a difference to our local community. The following are two prime examples and it is great to see how our students are understanding that they too can make a difference.
Key stage 2 excitedly welcomed Emma, Alice and Candice from Jungle Aid to talk to about their important work in the local community. Emma was keen to emphasise that it takes a whole team of volunteers with a whole range of different skills to support communities who lack the basic needs of food, medical and health care. We do, of course have our own Jungle Aid volunteers in school. Students in Y11 and 12 ably assisted the presentation to help raise awareness. KS2 children enthusiastically asked questions and left inspired to join future Jungle Aid projects! Ms Claire
KS2 children also donated a whole van full of supplies that were most appreciated by Jungle Aid and will be very gratefully received by the local needy communities. Thank you so much for your generosity. A little ‘head’s up’ is that we will be launching our annual Shoebox Appeal shortly.
The students have been really inspired by the ‘Our Community’ topic and have been researching projects that benefit our community . Pur (Y4) took this task to heart as you can see in her very professional interview with Khun Mungkorn Timkul, who was inspired to set up Hua Hin Skate Board Park, which is open to everyone to enjoy. Thank you to Pur and also to
It has been super to see students engaged in activities after school once more. Although we are not able to invite external providers to offer activities quite yet there were quite a range of ECAs to choose from: 53 in total. The activities led by our Year 12 students were very popular. Mr Jeremy has done his best to ensure that the students gained their choices. It is expected that there may be a few changes after the first week and then students can firmly commit to their selected ECAs.
The Theory of Knowledge
Our Year 12 students have been busy thinking about what constitutes knowledge for students of different age groups and this week they hosted learning activities for EY3, Y5 and Y8. It was great to see our younger learners interacting with our oldest students and seeing everyone progress in their learning. The Year 12 students were very pleased with the results of their activities and this will support their research in their IB Diploma work well. Mr Lewis
