News and Events
During their first unit Who We Are Grade 3B students were learning about healthy lifestyle and how choices we make every day affect our lives. For their final project students were asked to prepare something to show how they understood the central idea and to promote healthy lifestyle in PYP. Some students recorded songs, others prepared presentations and posters. Several students took videos of them exercising and eating healthy food. Masha, Najaf and Daniel decided to make a video to share with the whole PYP community and help kids become healthier. They all did an excellent job and managed to show their creativity and knowledge.
Grade 4 PYP students finished working on their first unit of inquiry ‘Who we are”
As part of their summative task, Grade 4B students created a video about the importance of being open-minded, global citizens. Students understood that our cultures are part of who we are and make us unique and special. In the video, grade 4B students emphasize the importance of respecting others despite our differences and encourage others to learn from other people’s perspectives and points of view. Our IB students are globally minded, caring citizens of the world.
U.N. DAY ASSEMBLY
The United Nations officially came into existence on 24 October 1945. Today (26.10.2020) at 8:40 we had a "shared time" morning check-in with lower grades. Our main aim was to briefly introduce them to the UN and its principles. We wanted to see if they would be interested in the UN and in participating in any of the events planned by the UN, as it would be very beneficial for them and their portfolios.
Collaboration on the topic communities
Grade 2 A students from IB PYP were engaged in an online lesson via Zoom with Pathways World school of India grade 2 students. 12 representatives were chosen out of 130 second graders from the Pathways World school, which were guided by homeroom teachers and 2nd grade coordinator Zarema Dawson.
Children Support Peers
As you know, the boarding school of Shatili burned down last year. On the same day when this happened, the European School students started a campaign #youjoinustoo. Students united to support their peers and began to collect school supplies. Books, textbooks, photo camera, balls, stationery items, computer accessories, and learning resources – these are only a few objects from the list of gifts delivered to Shatili. Georgian National University SEU joined our initiative and sent 8 computers to Shatili School.
4th IB programme to be offered at European School soon!
#Newchallenge #Continuousdevelopment Continuous development has been part of the European School history for more than a decade. The school executes its improvement journey so that all students’ needs are met. Different paths are offered to the European School students to meet their career goals and prepare them for future success.
Global Handwashing Day
Proper hand hygiene is the simplest and the most effective means of protection from infectious diseases. This year, the European School held several handwashing campaigns. Popular author Giorgi Kekelidze wrote a short story-Toma and the Great Secret dedicated to the Global Handwashing Day. This story is an occasional continuation of the popular children’s book Toma’s Tales. The ES students from the primary program created illustrations for the short story and later published it as a book.
Global Handwashing Day
Global Handwashing Day is an international handwashing promotion campaign to motivate and mobilize people around the world to improve their handwashing habits. On October 15, IB PYP Students celebrated Global Handwashing Day. Students shared their understanding of the importance of handwashing with soap as an effective way to prevent diseases. Teachers encouraged students through various creative activities to wash their hands with soap.

#Newchallenge #Newregulations #Digitaltransformation
The European School has started the new academic year with new beginnings, new ideas, new regulations and new technology resources. School digital transformation plan contribute to our ability to effectively respond to challenges. They are essential prerequisites for another successful school year.
Technology in the 21st-century education plays a major role. At the European School, we continue to incorporate emerging technology resources in classrooms to make learning more student-oriented and effective in this new reality. Our goal is to support the first-graders and their parents to address the challenges of distance learning and make the learning process interesting and flexible for kids. To achieve this goal, the school decided to provide the first -grade students with a multifunctional technology device. This device, together with other new technology resources integrated into our classrooms: interactive whiteboards, conference cameras, and document scanners will make online learning more similar to face-to-face learning.
Due to the current epidemic situation in Georgia, on September 15th, classes will begin in online mode at the European School.
Interactive Whiteboard Trainings
Supporting continuous professional development of our teachers and integrating new technologies in teaching are the main goals of the European School. The school develops consistently and tends to reflect on and respond to the ever-changing world. The European School starts the new school year with new beginnings.
