Christmas morning without presents under the tree is a sad reality facing many Russian Children in Orphanages each year. This year we would like to invite our parents to join us in helping the Philimonkovsky Orphanage ("Solnyshko") by giving individual Christmas gifts to the children who live there. Here you can find more information on how you can help: www.cisrussia-my.sharepoint.com/personal/ksenia_medvedovskaya_cisrussia_com/_layouts/15/guestaccess.aspx?folderid=159de50f322094c56987d5c7ace987b2c&authkey=AfWDqLep4j2rVsBKZnSCLkE&e=57c7f624194e4d0e80bcee5c5007290b
Our school will have two Wishing Trees, set up in the foyer of both the Primary School and the High School. Each Wishing Tree will have gift tags attached representing each child in the orphanage, with their gender and age on it. We ask that you select a Gift Tag and then buy an appropriate Gift for that child and then return the gift along with the Gift Tag attached (so we know who the gift is suitable for) and place it back under the Wishing Tree !
Some chosen students from CIS Skolkovo will then accompany the delivery of all the Christmas Gifts to The Sun Orphanage prior to the last day of school.
Thank you for your support and Merry Christmas !!
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!
