The Saturday Football Club was started in 2013 by the parents of the students. The club is open to all students from PYP2 to MYP2 and runs every Saturday from 8.30am to 9.30am. Children come together to learn the skills required to play the game and are led by enthusiastic parent coaches. The occasional matches help our students understand the skills of teamwork and cooperation. This semester (August 2016 – December 2016) the children were coached by three DP2 students.
The role of ICT is to provide integrated support to the whole curriculum via meaningful technology integration. The Units of Inquiry develop many ICT areas of competence and skills, such as using the internet safely and effectively, researching, inquiring and presenting work electronically.
ICT emphasizes the development of competencies in a range of tools that can be used by the learners across the whole curriculum and in their everyday lives:
- as a tool for inquiry
- a platform for communication between the school and the wider community
- a tool for reflection
- a tool for assessment
- a resource / research tool
- a tool to viewing and presenting learning
- a tool for entertainment
There is a strong emphasis on Digital Literacy and Digital Citizenship through our Digital Literacy and Information Literacy Scope and Sequence documents that guide our learning experiences.
