Our Christmas concert has now reached rehearsal stage. The students, who have been eagerly learning their lines and songs, have finally had a chance to assemble and rehearse the play together on stage for the first time. This year our students will appear on the stage as the characters of the well-known cartoon “Rise of Guardians” (based on William Joyce's “The Guardians of Childhood” book series). The students will perform a story about Santa Claus and the Guardians, who enlist Jack Frost to stop Pitch Black from engulfing the world in darkness. It is a story full of Christmas spirit and magic. Our little students are also busy preparing the concert for their parents. You will see the variety of talents, different songs, and dances on our school stage. All of our little actors and actresses are looking forward to sharing their excitement with you!
We would like to remind parents that the performances will be at the following times:
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!
