Autumn has finally come. The weather has changed drastically – it’s rainy and cloudy. However, these changes haven’t affected the moods of ISG students. They remained positively active and actively positive. Grade 0 is working hard exploring people and animals made of chestnuts, acorns and leaves. It’s enough to have a look at the Grade 0 classroom to feel their love for fall (did they fall in love with fall?) At the same time, Ms. Kamila’s students are getting ready for their big day – Grade 1 Induction! Songs, decorations, whispers of excitement... They all suggest that great fun is coming soon to ISG. When it comes to Grade 5 – it’s business as usual. Their heads are full of ideas, their bodies constantly in movement and their mouths never stop talking. But that’s what makes the ISG building so full of life even in unpleasant weather.
ISG students are having so much fun during their swimming classes! The swimming lessons are designed to be fun, using lots of games and themes. The swimming instructor teaches basic skills such as breath control, buoyancy, and arm and body movements in the water environment. Swimming students must feel safe and learn safety.
Later we will progress to more advanced skills such as floating, gliding, kicking, and finally swimming strokes. It will take some time. As we were leaving the swimming pool, the youngest ISG students shouted happily, “We LOVE swimming!”Visit our gallery to see more!
On the 14th of September preschooler Milan celebrated his 3rd birthday. Preschool and Grade 0 prepared a birthday party for this occasion. The children were treated to a tasty birthday cake which looked like a car. Then they had a lot of fun taking part in many competitions and dance activities. Check the gallery to see what a great time we had!
Learning about mammals, amphibians, reptiles and birds does not need to be boring. On September 6th our preschool and elementary school went on a field trip to the ZOO in Oliwa. Students of ISG discovered mysteries of ravenous tigers, playful meerkats and sunbathing kangaroos. But that is not all! Not only did our 5th Graders make some scientific observations; they also had a lot of fun in the ropes course. Luckily, nobody woke up the dinosaurs!
If you want to see the dinosaurs we did not wake (and much more), you are welcome to visit our gallery.
ISG rang in the new school year on September 1, welcoming back returning parents and students and greeting new friends. Joining the ISG family this year are students in the Early Years program: Preschool and Grade Zero. ISG Director Susan Schafer Mleczko and Gdansk Autonomic Preschool Principal Beata Wolkanowska introduced new and returning faculty and staff and gave an overview of what's in store this academic year. After such a positive beginning, we are bound to have a successful school year.
