Beirut World Book Capital 2009/2010: Our School's Participation

Joensuu Way 2009, Finland

Bnachii Trip

We are always keen on providing opportunities for students to get a chance to have fun and at the same time be learning something about the world around them. This time we chose to have our cycle 2 students experience the beauty of their own country in spring, so we decided to take them to Bnachii Lake in the north of Lebanon. Students were really excited to go on the trip especially that some of them have never heard of the place and others know that it is a very beautiful place but have never seen it. Students were ready with their cameras and phones to take pictures. They were curious to learn about the place, so they didn't hesitate to ask questions about it. At the end of the day, students spent hours of fun, and no doubt became more aware of more beautiful places around their country and its history.

Reading Is Fun Week

On the occasion of Beirut having been named “World Book Capital 2009 by the UNESCO and the occasion of the Reading Week, we visited the Arab Cultural Club...met the author Mr.Samah Idriss who introduced, described and read his books to us. It was a great experience to listen to a successful writer talk about his inspirations as well as a few funny moments of his life that had a big impact on his writing.It's the time to share the joy of reading and discover how much fun reading can be!

Special Guests at Our School

We were very lucky to have received another visit from the British Council so that the greater number of our students could have a chance to explore the educational yet fun website designed by the British Council: This time grades four and five spent an hour of fun listening first to Mr. Steve Hilton telling them about the site. Then they had an opportunity to see some of its features. They played some of its games, listened and watched some of the stories and even watched some of the famous Arab artists using English to tell more about themselves. The games were the most fun part. Students were divided into teams. A student from each team was picked to be the leader. Teams started competing and in the end there was a winner. The students' interaction was remarkable. They expressed their enthusiasm to explore the website on their own at home. Some of them were already doing that. Finally, they were presented with leaflets about the website and a pen to always remember this wonderful visit. Special thanks goes to the British Council for taking the time again and providing students with such an interesting website so teachers as well as parents are sure that their children are learning and at the same time spending hours of fun!
