Grade 2 have been comparing the features of different environments as part of the Sharing The Planet Unit of Inquiry. Our trip to the natural parkland of "La Selvotta" gave us the opportunity to observe at first-hand, both natural and human made features in a local environment and to see how a natural space can be valued, respected and preserved for all to enjoy and appreciate.
Last Friday 12 May, an inspector from Cambridge International Examinations (CIE) paid an unannounced visit to our school to check whether our practices comply with the regulations set by CIE.
On Thursday 18 May, Grades 6 to 10 took part in a stimulating and engaging presentation of Giovanni Floris' book "Quella Notte Sono Io". Interviewed by the journalist Gabriella Facondo, Mr. Floris engaged and interacted with students by asking them questions and getting them to reflect on what it means to conform, to be part of a group, to feel different. Some students who had prepared questions joined Mrs. Facondo and Mr. Floris on stage.
Grade 3 visited "La Tuscia Romana" this year for the residential trip. We had a fun-packed three days discovering the area around Lake Bolsena. We visited the National Park of Vulci and saw some ruins from the ancient Etruscans and learnt how to weave just like they did.
Rome International School is honoured to have author and talk-show host Mr. Giovanni Floris, present his latest book "Quella notte sono io" to Middle and High classes next Thursday 18 May.
