Dear friends of Stella International School,
We hope you enjoyed the Christmas time and had a good start into the New Year!
At school we ended the year with several nice activities and celebrations: Before Christmas we visited the traditional Christmas market in Schönbrunn, we celebrated Christmas in our classrooms with stories, songs and new games, which were gifted by the parents, and last but not least we attended the Christmas mass at the Peter’s church together with many parents and siblings.
In order to make it easier for you to plan ahead: In July the school will organize an International Summer Camp.
From now on you can register your children, but also siblings and friends, as well as children who will start school in September are welcome to join.
What do we have planned for the children at the summer camp?
- The general language of communication will be English. Every week is dedicated to another motto.
- We will have activities from 8am until 4pm every day. If the weather is nice, we will be outside in the mornings to explore the surroundings and we will visit the Donauinsel and several playgrounds.
- After lunch we will focus on our language skills – depending on the registrations we will offer English, French, German, Spanish and Polish. It is possible to register for a whole month or for single weeks.
- Apart from the main program also piano lessons will be offered and we will do handicrafts, sing and play.
The summer camp will take place if a minimum of 10 children wants to participate. Registration is open until 30/04/2020. Please also find further information on the website (link).
The good habit of the month January is industriousness. The guiding principles for this habit are “I make an effort to work neatly and well” and “I do my work quietly so that I do not distract others”. The objective is that the children can concentrate better at school and also at home, and you as parents can support your child in achieving this.
We would like to point out to you our next module of the Stella Parent’s Talks: on Wednesday, 22/01/2020 at 7pm we will talk about the topic “Understanding and being understood – empathic communication”. We are looking forward to your registration via the link!
We want to wish you and your families all the best for the time until the end of the semester and a relaxing semester break!
