Development talks have started, giving both parents and students an opportunity to meet with their mentor and talk about the first five weeks at Engelska Skolan. This is an interesting meeting for all involved, but especially for our students as they are the focus and they also get the chance to lead most of the meeting. How did they prepare? Every class spent almost 90 minutes going through what these talks are about, how they should be run and then letting students practice leading them. Students' goals were also discussed. Goals? Yes indeed, every student was asked to decide a few goals to strive for over the coming months. "I will be on time to my lessons", "I want to be a better leader in the school and welcome new students". These goals are important as they involve the students in their studies.
But tomorrow is the big day.... Halloween. We have many teachers from Canada and with them comes a tradition that all Canadians love -the day of the Dead. So tomorrow our 30 staff and 250 students will be dressed up as vampires, batman, princesses etc. and walk our corridors. What's next? We are preparing for Lucia, that's the beauty of our school -different traditions meet and sometimes collide but it's never boring and always enriching.
