We have started a project with the "Colegio Hacienda Los Alcaparros," an international school in Colombia. We are very excited about this project.
Children from Years 4 and 6 have been working during the week on a video where they introduced themselves and answered questions asked by the Colombian students. Then our students also presented their own questions to our new Colombian friends.
Year 4 spoke about Russian Christmas and Maslenitsa, about our school, what we are learning and other things. We even introduced them to the Tooth Fairy, since in South America a mouse takes the tooth.
Year 6 spoke about the importance of local economy, sustainable development goals and shared what they were learning about it during the week.
We have even more exciting projects planned with the school for after the holidays. We are convinced that these projects will help to develop the concept of being a global citizen as we all are.
