Christmas Card Sale

Thank you for supporting the Make Change Possible Foundation by purchasing Christmas cards!

For the MCP Christmas card sale at the beginning of this week, I created over 100 Christmas cards, which earned me around 20 CAS hours.

With your help, we were able to raise an amazing total of 300 Euros. Your support is highly appreciated. I am happy to transfer your contribution to the MCP foundation and support them in their valued work in Mayana, Namibia.

Waldpiraten Fundraiser

Last week students from EP all the way up to Grade 10 completed their fundraising physical activities during PE lessons.

If you remember, Grade 11’s had produced several excellent videos demonstrating and explaining the activities for each class. Early Primary students did running, Grade 1 to Grade 3 students did jumping jacks, crab walks, line jumps, relays and frog jumps.

Grade 3 and Grade 5 did star jumps, frog jumps and mini rabbit runs. Grade 4 did swimming because they had a Swimming lesson.

Finally Grades 6-10 did basketball shooting and throwing a ball into a box. Some students also threw a hula hoop over a cone instead. It was amazing to see how enthusiastic our students were in all of the grades during their PE lessons. One student in the MYP made 560 baskets in one lesson!

Well done everybody!  Don’t forget to keep fundraising.

Konnie’s Weekend

Konnie had a lovely weekend.  He met a new friend on our walk.  The Highland calf was very interested to see what Konnie was doing with a fallen branch.

He is still fascinated with sticks and even tried to take this one home.

After a long walk in autumnal weather there is nothing better than being able to lie in front of a roaring fire.

Waldpiraten Fundraiser 2020

Due to the current situation with COVID-19, the annual Waldpiraten Fundraiser cannot concur in the same manner as in previous years. Instead, students can take part in the the Fundraiser by excercising during their physical education classes in PYP and MYP.
A small group of Grade 11  students are organising this event:
All students will be provided with an introduction video explaining what the Waldpiraten Fundraiser is and how it will be different this year.
Following, students will be presented a short video explaining the exercises they will need to complete and how many repetitions correspond to a lap run on the track. The annual Waldpiraten Run was always a fun and interactive way to get the students of H.I.S. excited about supporting a good cause; and despite our current situation, the students hopefully still have a wonderful time! More information will be presented in the next H.I.S. newsletter. Thanks for your support in advance!
