ICS students are out and about - on and off campus- enjoying, celebrating, discovering and learning!
October, designated as International School Library Month, was celebrated in a grand way on the ICS campus last Friday as Primary students attended school dressed up as their favourite character from a book. A colourful potpourri of amazingly costumed students (not to mention teachers!) took part in a parade during morning recess and came together for an assembly in the Primary Atrium.
Off campus, as part of their ‘Who We Are’ Unit of Inquiry, ICS Grade 3 students paid a visit to Zurich’s Kulturama, a museum which documents, explains and illustrates the evolution of animals and mankind. Comparative anatomy, with real skeletons of animals and humans, illustrates the link between prehistoric times and the present, and the Kulturama showcases an impressive collection of anatomical specimens, fossils and models. Grade 3 students explored the human skeleton in detail, participated in a museum tour and workshop, and experimented with models and simulations.
Last, but by no means least, our Primary Round Square students went on an excursion that took them across Switzerland to the headquarters of the United Nations in Geneva. ICS is proud to be the only Round Square School in Zurich and our membership in this prestigious global organization benefits students in numerous ways. During last week’s day-long trip to the UN in Geneva, a guided tour allowed students to increase their awareness of the Round Squares ideals of Internationalism, Democracy, Environmentalism, Adventure, Leadership and Service.
