There has been a lot going on this year, often in the background in ICT and at the LRC. It is now the time of the year when we get to showcase some of that work.
Here are some of the highlights for the next two weeks:
1. Earth Day is this Thursday so we have included a few different activities on our website for the students to take part in this week or over the weekend with their families.2. DVA Voting will begin this Wednesday morning and close on Sunday April 25th 6pm. Emails will go out to staff and students tomorrow morning which contain the voting form. The form(which is closed until tomorrow morning) can also be accessed via the DVA Website. *Only members of the school community will be able to log in, view the videos and vote.We have included a short teaser for DVA which highlights certain aspects of each nominated video, which is viewable by anyone with the link.
community, this Friday. The site itself contains an array of activities for students abnd staff to take part in over the course of the week.During Book Week, we are also running live online sessions with certain grades through the KS3 HoYs in addition to setting up a discussion panel with our 12th grade IB students and those in a school in Paraguay, through the Spanish department.The International Book Store has set up an online book fair for staff and students as well and this to can be accessed directly from our website.4. Finally, we will continue promoting STEAM Fest as of next week with reminders about dates and requirements.
This will be the second time we have had to move both DVA and STEAM Fest online. Both have been revamped to meet the needs of online learning but STEAM Fest has is the event that has morphed the most. In developing this year's STEAM Fest we have done our best to ensure that relveant ICT project work has a place, as well as guided general challenges and guided open challenges as well. You can check out the 2021 Site as well as STEAM Fests past, here.Thanks for all of the hard work you do in promoting these school activities.The DVA, STEAM and LRC Teams greatly appreciate your support.

Each school year the LRC Team prepares a variety of fun activities and resources designed for students to learn more about their brains, how to keep them healthy and challenge them.
This year we are still teaching from home so we again had to find another way to do this. We have found that Google Sites has proven very useful for creating online themed events for the community. Just short of year from the day they locked things down in El Salvador due to COVID-19, we find ourselves publishing our newest resource via Google Sites.
Here is the link to our Brain Awareness Week Page.
We hope that members of our community will enjoy taking part in these activities.
Happy Friday Everyone!

I believe to have found myself as what can only be described as the February planning doldrums, which have been exacerbated by teaching online in COVID-19 times. As with anything I believe that the way to get through something and spark positive change is by taking further action. Doing so, usually get those teacher sails a billowing, so to speak. I hope some of what follows here speaks to anyone else who finds themselves in this situation.
