Valentine’s Day 2018

My kids love holidays for a good reason – we always have CRAFTS on that day! 🙂 This Valentine’s Day was very special. Children made suncatchers for their mums! Lots of fun and laughter!

SMART goals with Mr.Fabinson

We had a great opportunity to have Mr.Fabinson at our lesson. Being a Peace Corps volunteer, he gave great insights on the keys to success and the life goals for every young person. We especially likds his presentation of SMART goals. Thank you, Fabinson!

HAPPY THANKSGIVING!

This week my students and I have celebrated a wonderful holiday – Thanksgiving. We watched a cartoon about the history of this holiday, found out what food Americans eat on this day and even made a craft – a bookmark 🙂 Kids were soooo excited!

LETTERS TO THE US

October  27 was a special day for the 2nd formers – they wrote letters to their American friends from Rush City, MN. Their faces showed happiness as they were writing the letters and drawing pictures. This project has been taking place for two years already and the kids are so proud of this friendship. Soon Kimberly Sikkink Halbert will receive the letters and hand them out to our American friends!

Visitors from the USA

On Friday, October 27, we had the privilege to welcome two visitors from Minnesota, USA. David Melin and Greg McClellan conducted four lessons during which they had great conversations with our students. They talked about  schools in the US, discipline issues, school uniform, bullying and other problems that American kids face.

International DAY OF PEACE in our Gymnasia

On September 21, our school activists held festive events dedicated to the International Day of Peace. The day began with the traditional meeting as a sign of supporting world peace. In addition, on this very day, the students of gymnasia made leaflets and posters reflecting the calls for the peaceful coexistence of all nations on the planet. The little students of 2-4th grades amzed the gymnasia community and school guests with the impressive creative autumn handmade art pieces during the exhibition called “Autumn Peace Design”. Our students did their best to contribute to the efforts of millions of people around the globe aimed at making people not only consider the issue of world peace but also do something to sustain it. For this reason, gymnasia’s 5-10-graders have conducted a Peace Charity Fair and will direct the money raised to the people of the city who need our help most.

My new classroom!

I am excited to have a new classroom this year with a brand new Interractive TouchBoard Plus! With this smart technology my calasses are more educational and more entertaining. Lots of new opportunities, new experience and new ideas. Kids love it and I love it too!

GoCamp 2017

GoCamp 2017 at FCG

This year we conducted GoCamp at our Gymnasia and it was a huge SUCCESS! Over 200 students attended the English camp, where they practised their English, sang songs, did crafts, played games and had lots of fun. We had an honour to have Jean and Ray Rivers, two volunteers from Canada, who were a valuable addition to the camp. Being the Director of FCG_GoCamp, I would like to express my deepest gratitude to the great team of teachers, for their creativity, love for the  kids and unending source of enthusiasm!
