May the full moon of the Mid-Autumn Festival light the way to success, peace and harmony. Happy Mid-Autumn Festival!

There is nothing like incorporating arts and crafts activities related to cultural celebrations at school to promote cultural awareness, creativity, and inclusivity among our students. Here is some footage from our CP classes getting ready for Mid-Autumn Festival celebrations with a lantern painting workshop. ūüŹģ

A look back at two days of writing workshops and conferences on critical thinking and fake news with Antonin Atger. After those two days, our students have learned valuable skills and strategies to help them navigate the complex world of media and information. We are grateful for the opportunity we have to provide our students with such learning opportunities!

It was an honour to welcome Mrs. Cazebonne, the Senator of French citizens living abroad, to our school this morning. The visit started with a tour of our TKO campus and ended with several meetings with different stakeholders from our community. Félicie and Simon, the two students who represented our school in a professional and engaging manner, were thrilled to have the opportunity to meet Madame la Sénatrice and to learn more about French politics and the role of Senators.

And that's a wrap for our first week of Primary ECAs! Let's go for a first semester full of activities, including new additions to our range this year!
