‘Sharing’ has been one of the biggest obstacles that we’ve faced over the past year. The word itself has gained new meaning and has consequently been reinvented.
Throughout this year’s journey of discovery, the International Section endeavoured to make the stability of our students our priority. Resilience and cooperation between parents, teachers and students was key, allowing us to open this door together.
And it was based on this concept of unity, sharing and celebration in mind that the IS teachers organised a different and memorable last day of classes with the creation of a very particular Escape Room, adapted to our students. The challenges included several puzzles and clues, leading to a poem to be deciphered with the use of morse code; a system of equations used to determine vectors that led to paths and keys; chemical substances such as phenolphthalein, magnifying glasses, flashlights, locks and keys, all in a darkened backdrop with audio and different textures, so all the senses had to be used, individually and collectively.
This game meant that all students from IG1 to IB1 were prisoners for one morning and in order to escape for their holidays, together, they had to carefully follow a series of clues and look for a set of letters that led to the key word for their release: Freedom.
All groups, in a unique, remarkable, and united way, found their freedom, both literally and symbolically.
Enjoy it, dear students!
We look forward to seeing again in September, with the same joy as always!
