One hundred and sixty-eight children in grades 1-3 are back in their beloved Primary School in real time while the other half of the school, in grades 4-6, continue distance-learning in small groups with their teachers.
When you’ve been studying ancient building methods, it gets “real” when the students experiment with the materials available to them. In this case, it’s also a perfect fit with the School’s K-6 recycle, re-use, no-waste commitment.
It takes time for children everywhere to learn to keep their masks on. The exception is lunch time, when everyone stays in small groups but no one has learned how stay masked and eat.
The masks and separation into small-groups might be the “new normal” for a while, but what stays the same is the Primary School’s Arabic-Hebrew bilingual, binational and multicultural study of every subject including literature and history.
We are preparing this next generation to be courageous explorers of the world they will inherit. They may even remember these days as a time of wonder!
