Santa Claus made a surprise visit to ISBerne on Friday 6 December, with a few helpers in tow. He and his team went around to all the classes, including secondary school where he barged into classes and actually tossed treats at the kids, much to the surprise of the students! In the Elementary he sat and chatted with the kids. asking questions about what they were currently learning in school. (Energy sources and nutrition seemed to be the common theme) He was charmingly serenaded by many classes with their newly learned Christmas carols and holiday songs. Before departing, he passed out goodie bags to all the children, filled with clementine oranges donated by parents, chocolate, donated by Nestl´e and traditional spice cookies of Switzerland purchased by the PTC. It was a great way to start off the month of December!
ISBerne’s International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme (IB PYP), for students aged 3-11, sets the foundation for a positive attitude toward learning by developing a child’s natural inquisitiveness and introducing to them an international curriculum & perspective at an early age. In this ISBerne captured moment, we get a sense of the enriching environment at the ELC.
