GREETINGS

Once again, we express gratitude towards our Almighty God, and welcome all our students, staff, parents, community, and international friends to the 7th week of the second academic term. Following our weekly routine, we now bring you an update on the 6th week, which ended on February 15, 2019.

 

STORIES

A Quick Recap of Week 5

Since our headmistress, Ms. Joyceline, also conducts classes, she narrated an interesting story to the Carnation class (aged 5 – 6 years) in week 5. The pupils were asked to draw from their own imaginations to provide illustrations. To know more on this, please visit this  PEI NEWS a link attached to this report.

 

Week 6 in Review (11 -15 February 2019)

In week 6, the Carnation class continued their creative artwork by making sculptures through sand casting. You can watch a video of this here.

 

We also taught lessons on the roles of parents, family, and members of the community. For our mathematical activities, we explored the measurement of height, and for our language classes, we studied phonic consonant sounds ‘wh’ and ‘th’.

The Sunflower and Morning Glory classes (children aged 2 – 3 and 3 – 4 years respectively) continued their writing of lower-case alphabets from ‘a’ to ‘w’. In phonics, they learnt how to form two and three letters sounds with vowels ‘a’ and ‘e’, such as ‘an’, ‘am’, ‘me’, and ‘he’.

We also held an activity called ‘movement exploration’ through which the children learnt how to dress according to their tribes’ customs.

 

Miss Abigail Nyani taught the Pansy class (aged 4 – 5 years) lessons on leisure, counting objects in a set, and creative arts, which included imaginative drawings based on a Ghanaian tale of a man named Kweku Ananse. A short version of the story goes like this:

“Once upon a time, there was a man named Kweku Ananse who lived with his wife Okonory Yaa, and four sons - Ntikuma, Etikelenkele, Nakowhia and Efuduwhewhe. Kweku Ananse was smart, but lazy, and never contributed to farm work. One day, he asked his wife to bury him in their farm when he dies. When she agreed, he faked his own death, and his wife honoured his request by burying him in the farm. This way, Kweku Ananse managed to steal the crops and ate them every night. However, he was finally caught, and all the folks in the whole village shamed him for his actions.”

The moral of this story is – Don’t be lazy, greedy and a cheat. The students drew some wonderful pictures from the story.

 

Red Day Event Highlights

As per our calendar of activities, Red Day was successfully held as planned on February 14, 2019 at PEI.  The programme trained our young ones on loving one another and caring for things in our classrooms as well as the environment.

PEI was to go RED on 14th February 2019

PEI RED DAY KIDS
PEI RED DAY KIDS

Greetings

As per our scheduled activities, PEI was to go RED on February 14, 2019. By the grace of God, the day arrived at last, and PEI went Red!

The Story

As a morally-inclined institution that seeks to nurture children into responsible citizens of the future, we go beyond imparting academic knowledge to also cultivate good values and morals in our students. And so, we scheduled the PEI Red Day to celebrate love with the world. To watch a video about the event, please visit the link attached to this report -RED DAY EVENT and for more update of our school - PEI NEWS

We designed this programme to help children develop a healthier attitude towards loving one another. As part of the event, we shared stories from the Bible such as the story of the Good Samaritan (Luke 10:30-37), and played videos that taught them how to care for the things they love. The children and the school also exchanged gifts to show their ability to share abundance with one another.

We also organised fun activities and games including football, oware, ludo, and ampe. The celebrations were a success and everybody had a wonderful time. We hope to have more of these amazing experiences in the coming months. 

 

 

Thank you for being a part of this.

Best wishes,

PEI STUDENTS
