Initiative to support Children in Hospital.
The Commissioner for Children has asked school children to contribute pencil colours and crayons as an incentive to support hospitalised children. During a spontaneous discussion the children in Year 1 agreed that they would like to contribute to this worthy cause and a collection of colours was made!! Such incentives promote generosity and solidarity, which are admirable qualities we want to see in our children. Well-done Year 1 !!!
What a fine way to finish an extremely hectic day ! This typical Lamb and Chicken Couscous, freshly cooked by the expert hands of Ms Souad, Ms Asmaa Ms Nuzha and Ms Samira was served to all the staff to savour Coupled with this delicacy we also had the opportunity to taste some tuna bread meticulously prepared by Ms Jessica and Mr Alfred. The bread was also distributed to all our wonderful students. And as the saying goes…. the proof of the pudding is in the eating ! And I assure you all was gobbled up ! A BIG THANK YOU AND WELL DONE TO ALL!
Today in KG1A we made popcorn! This hands on activity helped the children to notice the difference between raw corn and cooked popcorn. The children managed to point out that when the corn is raw, it’s yellow, hard and small while when it’s cooked, it becomes white, soft and big.
They loved every minute of it and this could be seen from their pleased faces as well as from their squeals of excitement every time the corn popped !
This was a great experience for our younger ones who had the opportunity to distinguish between cooked food and raw food by distinguishing from its colour, texture and taste. A very big. Well Done !
