The Annual Language Day at ISG was a delightful success, despite the challenges and restrictions of our world. Students watched many diverse video lessons sent by our wonderful parents who shared their mother tongue language with us. There were a total of 14 language videos sent in: Croatian, Hebrew, Hindi, Estonian, Shona, Rumanian, Portuguese, Maori, Japanese, French, Russian, Slovenian, Ukrainian, and Netherlandic (the language of Belgium). Students also had some Basic lessons on Duolingo, for one given language, in order to learn a little more about one specific language. All in all, teachers and students were excited and engaged in the day’s activities, and we are so grateful to our parents for their willingness support the uniqueness and diversity that make us who we are at ISG, and in the world.

As every year in our school, we were playing during the Street Games Event. Jumping rope, hopscotch, orientation games, chalk painting- that is what our pupils were doing that day. Wonderful weather just made this day even more fantastic. Thank you all for an amazing farewell for summer, great atmosphere and welcoming autumn together.

On the 14th of September International School of Gdansk celebrated the International Dot Day. The Title Dot from a book by Peter H. Reynolds was an inspiration for our creative actions. See the results for yourself!

„Just make a mark and see where it takes you”
On September 15, 2003, The Dot – a book written and illustrated by Peter H. Reynolds, was released in the United States. The inconspicuous story, written in a modest language, presents Vashti - a girl who does not believe in her own abilities. Her tale touched the hearts of teachers who read it to their students and talk about the talents that lie dormant in each of us.
The Dot has been translated into several dozen languages, published in Braille, and has become a pretext for organizing a great global campaign - the International Dot Day. The Polish premiere of the book took place in September of 2017. The Dot was also placed on the Golden List of the ABCXXI Foundation.
The book is available in our library for those who haven’t had a chance to read it yet.
