    A WORD FROM MS. NIKIDIS ABOUT THE ECLIPSE

    Monday's total eclipse left me in awe witnessing the sheer wonder on our students' faces! In a world of routines, and sometimes fear of the unknown, these moments remind us of the magic that surrounds us. They ignite curiosity, spark imagination, and unite us in marveling at the universe's wonders. This eclipse wasn't just an event; it was a milestone for our students—a memory they'll cherish. Hearing the “oohs and aahs” reminded me that we need to embrace wonder in education and encourage questioning and exploration!! Thank you Traf team for being so invested in making this experience special for our students! Special thank you to the Sec 1 class for their hard work putting together the eclipse activities and games in the cafeteria.

    Here's to celebrating every milestone and igniting the fire of curiosity in our students!

    MariMUN

    Congratulations to Lexi, Violet and Sofia for participating in the 37th iteration of the Marianopolis Model United Nations Conference (MariMUN). Lexi and Violet, respectively representing Denmark and Sweden in the General Assembly - UNIDO (Sustainable Industrialization and Workers' Rights), advocated for better working conditions in the fashion industry. Meanwhile, Sofia took on the role of Genevan philosopher, Jean-Jacques Rousseau in a specialized agency called The Age of Reason: An Enlightenment Salon. Although it was her first Model United Nations conference, Sofia quickly developed her skills in diplomacy over the course of the weekend and earned herself a certificate and gavel as the recipient of the committee’s Kew Dock Yip Award for Remarkable Determination.

    All three students are to be commended for their active involvement in committee sessions and we hope they will continue to shine at future MUN conferences.
