School Leaders' Editorial
A big charity event benefitting the Maluk Orphanage is in the works at both campuses! And we want SBB families involved!! Samantha Rumpel addressed both Assemblies this week as she is working with SBB teachers and students on a "Community Charity Science Festival." This is Samantha's idea and we all are so proud she is taking action to benefit others!
In the coming weeks, SBB students and parents will work on Science projects and display them in the Community Hall on Wednesday, May 28. All entries will be acknowledged with a prize and a congratula-tory certificate. Students can work alone, in pairs or in small groups on their chosen project. Samantha will hand out prizes and Mr. Trent Tempel will be awarding the certificates!
For those students who do not want to create a project, there will be a "Science Learning Area" where they can teach us about the Science-based projects they have worked on this past academic year! We all get to learn from one another!
Even though admission to this event is free, we are asking for donations at the door, which will be given to the Maluk Orphanage. We are asking moms and dads to get involved and help their children with their Science projects in the evenings and on weekends. We are close to the end of the year and there will not be a lot of classroom time for this – so it will be a family-centered event that is supported by the school! Lots more information on this big event will be announced in the coming weeks so stay tuned!
Thank you, Samantha, for leading us in this awesome celebration of student learning and charity giving!
Kayu Besi Campus - 10 April 2014
At the Kayu Besi assembly this week, Year 4 shared information about their current unit which is all about marketplaces. Students presented information on how markets depend on the ability to produce goods and supply services that can be exchanged. Students showed posters of products which they purchased from the commissary and analyzed the packaging, price, product and promotional characteris-tics of each item. Year 4 also shared their knowledge about the ethics of marketplaces as well as common mediums of exchange through a drama play.
Students showed their integration in Math by explaining how percentages work when products are discounted. Students then shared narrative stories which they wrote about marketplaces. Finally, students played a string musical composition which really entertained the audience.
