Happy Friday, all!
It is officially one week since Book Week 2017 came to a close. This year’s theme from the International Association of School Librarianship is Connecting Communities & Cultures. In line with this, we invited a handful of administrators and faculty members to tell stories to different classes, each story originating from or discussing different countries.
For China, we had our School President, Ms. Felicia Atienza
Head of Schools, Mr. Tim Boulton, for Canada
Faculty members: Ms. Madhu Saini, Ms. Iris Morga, Ms. Hazel Wong, and Mr. Juan Jose Del Alamo representing India, Philippines, China, and Spain respectively.
Aside from this, we had an International Bookmark Exchange Program. The students were asked to design bookmarks and we sent these out to our partner schools in China and Guatemala. We also received bookmarks from said partner schools and we distributed these among CISM students.
Our biggest event for Book Week was Book Character Dress Up Competition for Early Years/Elementary School, and a Book Trailer Competition for Upper School.
Each winning class received a giant ribbon and a pizza party to celebrate their victory
We are so thankful for everyone’s participation—Book Week turned out to be a big success! We are definitely looking forward to the next!
