Our 12.12.12 blogging challenge!

And so it came to pass, that on the 12th day of the 12 month of the 12 year of the new millennium,  the wizard of the library (AKA Ms. Heywood) asked the bloggers, "What sayest thou art those 12 things that thou dost like, nay that thou dost crave?'

And the worthy minions, stroked their chins and wondered, and pondered, and  thought, and then... they blogged. So click on the links below to find out what some of our Form 1s really, really like!

Or just click on any of our class blogs to the left to find out more...

Skype adventures 2012 #3

Wow! All around the world? What about 3 continents in one hour?

The library prefects had such a fantastic, fun and engaging afternoon @ our library!  Mystery skyping with Form 5s in Honduras, and playing Geography Detectives with Grade 3s in Illinois.

And then we  topped that off by connecting one of our prefects (a future empress of the world, because according to our motto, 'the geeks shall inherit the earth') with her new hero, Steve Hallowes , a Mathematics and Education specialist in South Africa. Our heads are just giddy from all the excitement!

Skype adventures #2

Holiday traditions in Greece on PhotoPeach

Form 1K were lucky enough to meet our new friends from Ms. Papaoiannou's and Ms Mantouni's classes in Athens. They created this lovely movie about how they celebrate Christmas in Greece. You'll find that somethings they do are very much like our customs, but somethings are very different. Enjoy and please don't forget to leave a comment after viewing!
