It's the last day of Book Week today, a week I've come to appreciate more and more with our time in JIS. The kids all love it and every year it's a different exciting theme.
The school seems to make more and more of an effort each year in making Book Week bigger and bigger; and inviting interesting and inspiring authors and illustrators. Every year it's a huge success.
Our two certainly have been displaying a bit of a spark this week, even though it's also been the last week before the holidays. It's been a lot of fun to hear all their stories about what they've experienced at school. Lucas shared an experiment with us the other day, that Nick Arnold had taught them - how to submerge a one dollar bill in water without it getting wet!
Today on the last day of school, all the children in Prep School were invited to come to school dressed as mad scientists, botanists, chemists or anything else in the theme.
We had found some cheap Singaporean school uniforms (?) that worked well as lab coats. Added to that protective goggles, plastic gloves, a pen and a Mad Lab ID card - plus crazy green hair, and they were all set to go to school!
