WEEK IN REVIEW: On Friday the 23rd of July, students from all levels in the School celebrated Monday’s national holiday, which recognises the ‘Annexation of the Partido of Nicoya’. Students were invited to wear national dress on this day and undertook a number of different activities including learning about the history behind this event, performing typical dances and creating artwork/avatars to highlight both the annexation and the consequences that it subsequently had on Costa Rican society.
This week, despite some minor disruptions to learning, we were delighted to welcome back Years 2, 4, 7, 8 and 10 to in-person classes for the first time this semester.
