Trinity News : April 2011
As part of our Term One unit of inquiry, the boys of Pre Kindergarten Lewisham have been visiting the seven continents of the world right here in the classroom! Pre Kindergarten has been learning about some of the culture and traditions of various countries and the ways in which these practices are the same as yet different from our culture and traditions. So far Pre Kindergarten boys have explored Africa and Asia and their inquiries have seen them: ́ engaging in African tribal dance and playing bongo drums ́ learning African games (such as Mbube Mbube) ́ exploring artworks from various countries and painting their own interpretations of these ́ making Chinese lanterns ́ making dragon masks ́ performing a Chinese dragon dance ́ Sumo Wrestling ́ reading a variety of stories ́ kite making ́ researching on the internet ́ watching Youtube clips Pre Kindergarten boys are looking forward to continuing their journey around the world. As part of this unit, the boys will celebrate a “Family Day” to share some of their family culture and traditions. | Helen Wills and Jeanine Kobylinski Children around the world top: Miles Buvac and Hayden Hua became fearsome warriors with their African warrior shields above: Luke Gergis and Christopher Spencer about to try Japanese Sumo Wrestling right: Oscar Lobb McEwan, Thomas Dunphy and Peter Khoury Harb with the lion masks they made This term I had the pleasure of taking a number of boys from FISH to a workshop for young leaders run by Crusaders (a Christian organisation supporting gospel ministry in schools). The training aims to equip students for various leadership roles in Christian groups and worship meetings including for example, leading in prayer, reading the Bible and welcoming new members. Ray Chan, Edward Khoury, Ethan May, Andrew O’Dea, Joshua Thanopoulos and Michael Witheridge from Year 6 enjoyed the workshop immensely and were encouraged in the area of personal prayer. Their behaviour was exemplary. From my point of view, F.I.T. was a great opportunity to see the spiritual maturity of these boys, and their willingness to embrace responsibility and be an encouragement to others. | James Ricketts FIT FOLLOWERS IN TRAINING TRINITY NEWS 39 School House
