Well what a week it has been. Today a very happy, extremely tired group of Cambridge International students and teachers returned to Moscow after a wonderful, adventurous week in the Lake District, the most beautiful part of Great Britain.
We left Russia, just over a week ago, a very excited, eager bunch of children and a well-rested group of teachers. We have returned rather sleepy, but we have had the most amazing week!
We have pushed ourselves to the limit; tested our abilities; learnt new skills and made new friends.
From the gladiator challenge to the rifle shooting, caving to bush craft, kayaking to visiting Carlisle castle, we have had a nonstop week with Easy Adventure. Miss Dee and Miss Maria had great fun in the Cabins with the girls. Mr Runar, Mr Robert and the boys from the Bunkhouse were always the first in line at breakfast. Camping has been a great adventure, for some it was the first time they had slept in a tent. The children definitely kept Miss Claire and I on our toes.
I would like to say an enormous thank you to all of the wonderful staff that came on this trip; Miss Dee, Miss Maria, Miss Claire, Mr Robert and Mr Runar. You have all worked so hard during this trip; we couldn’t have done it without you!
Another great big thank you goes to the fabulous Easy Adventure staff: Mr Michael, Mr Simon and Mr Phil. They gave us the best week we could possibly have had! A real adventure!
And finally I would like to say thank you to the children who came on this trip. Your behaviour was exemplary! You were fabulous ambassadors for Cambridge International School.
I am very proud to have led such a fantastic trip full of fabulous people.Danielle Harrison
The University of Cambridge has over 100 libraries. The central library alone (the Cambridge University library, or the ‘UL’) has approximately 8 million volumes, and is able to request a free copy of every book published in the UK and Ireland.
One book in the CIS Festivalnaya library that I recommend is The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe by C.S. Lewis.
School is one of the best periods of your life. Some friends that you find in school stay with you for the rest of your life.
Here at our school, each student can choose a club they like the most. In this issue, we would like to tell you more about the Journalism Club.
Dr. Carol Dweck devised the terms ‘fixed’ and ‘growth’ mindset to describe the attitudes people have about their learning and intelligence.
Global Perspectives is a new Cambridge course that we are implementing this academic year at Festivalnaya.
A noble man compares and estimates himself by an idea which is higher than himself; and a mean man, by one lower than himself. The one produces aspiration; the other ambition.
We have some exciting news on this sunny day!
