STEAM learning is a huge part of our curriculum and holds great value here at NAIS Manila. It begins for the junior learners in the Forest School Challenges, each week holds a new challenge from creating insect ecosystems to pine cone weather stations. Great outdoor activities for the children to engage with
Global Campus in the Secondary School
As well as a new area for the under 8’s, there is also a new section called Global Campus Senior. It contains challenges for children aged 14 and up, with projects and discussion on world issues with children from around the globe. A new preparation for university section also allows children the opportunity to explore that next stage in their academic journey
There is so much to look forward to leading up to Christmas.
We have the Lego and MIT Hacking Challenges that link with our STEAM learning, Virtual Musician of the year and dance construction challenges for the Performing Arts,
We will be working on Global Campus to celebrate World Children’s Day on November the 20th.
We also have on the horizon:
- October 12th - Comic Book Competition
- November 11th - Nord Anglia Taskmaster
- November 11th - Reinvention Challenge
- November 23rd - World Hello Day
- December 8th - Time Traveller’s Day
- December 15th - National Cupcake Day - YUM!
We have enjoyed wonderful success this half term, with views from our school reaching over 15,000 in one month and winning accolades for our school such as Best in Region.
However, the thing that I get the most sense of pride over is the engagement of the children, the enthusiasm to tackle the activities and that they are getting the most out of everything that Global Campus has to offer.
