#RISBookWeek: When talking about first impressions and prejudice there is an underlying belief that there is more to an object than its empirical form & appearance but the latter can be misleading. Can we be sure of this or is this another stereotype? https://t.co/zR596MtIBS pic.twitter.com/jUhEOvc5rY— RomeIntSchool (@RomeIntSchool) March 6, 2018

Our toddlers love to read stories together. It is a moment of peace in their busy day. Reading is not only lots of fun, it is also very important for our young students' development.
Grade 9 have been looking into Pirandello and his concept of identity. Pirandello states that men wear masks through which other people identify them. These masks are many and change all the time, depending on whom they have in front of them. According to Pirandello "self" and "identity" are lost and unachievable in human beings.
