A week ago, our family attended IB Night at the girls' school. The school is an IB Candidate school this year. IB is such a wonderful concept! They are boosting a generation of world citizens! It is very cool.
The evening started with a FANTASTIC (!!) presentation about volcanoes, by Bruce Junek who is an adventure traveler (with his wife). They have traveled to MANY of the world's active and inactive volcanoes. The slides he showed were magnificent!
I have a thing for geology, including anything to do with volcanoes.
After the presentation, the Kindergarteners took the stage and sang a song about IB Attitudes. SO CUTE!
After that, we took our "Passport" and went from classroom to classroom, taking part in various activities centered on IB Attitudes/Behaviors such as being open-minded, keeping balance, being an inquirer, caring, being principled, being a thinker, being a risk-taker, being knowledgeable, being a communicator, and being reflective.
Aren't these GREAT traits for a school to teach?!! I just LOVE this school!
In the photos where the girls are writing, they are reflecting on who has been the greatest influence on them or who has made a big difference in their lives. I joined in (as did many of the parents).
It was a fun night!
