CISK Book Week
This year’s annual CISK Book Week has been a roaring success! With a range of activities across every day of the week, students from kindergarten to high school have had the chance to build on their love of reading and their appreciation of the treasures you can find in books.
What have we been doing?
Students were reciting poems
Kindergarten and PYP students teamed up for a Pajama Reading Buddy activity, where the older students read stories to their younger schoolmates.
Students took part in a Book Exchange, where they could bring old books to school and then swap them for other books brought by their schoolmates – everyone could get something new!
All students designed their own new covers for books they had chosen, while MYP and DP students had a very special event – an interview with the renowned young Chinese author Karoline Kan, whose book “Under Red Skies” tells the story of three generations of life, loss, and hope in China.
Students dressed as characters from books and took part in a catwalk in the gymnasium. Meanwhile, there has been a Book Fair here the whole week, where students can browse through and purchase new books.
The whole week was great fun, and it was marvelous to see students entering into the activities with such enthusiasm. There is no doubt that CISK students understand the importance of reading and that they are genuine book fans!
