Come and build using our Lego Wall!

Just this month, we put up our very own Lego Wall in the EED LRC, and we are inviting everyone to come and build something using this wall!

The Lego wall for Kinder and Grade 1 boys was placed as a continuing effort to support the makerspace movement. Here, students can create something based on their imagination through the use of lego blocks. It can be used during their recess and lunch break. We believe that this will definitely be a great venue to develop creativity among the students in the EED.

Spiderman once said, “With great power, comes great responsibility.” This is why,  the Lego Wall can be played with by boys who can practice the virtues of peacefulness and respect inside the LRC.

Book Review: My journey to the stars

My journey to the stars

by Scott Kelly

Illustrated by Andre Ceolin

1

Have you ever wondered what it’s like to live in zero gravity? How Earth looks like from up above? How the Bahamas looks like in space? Or how it’s really like to spend a year in a space shuttle?

Join astronaut Scott Kelly as he tells us his adventures on how he became an astronaut, straight from his memories of playing in the garden with his Grandma and Pop Pop every weekend. This reminded him of a time when he took care of a plant in the International Space Station (ISS). He has a talent for finding trouble with his twin brother, Mark, who’s also an astronaut. He also shares about his real struggles while in school, him wanting to help people in need, and him wanting to become a doctor. He eventually managed to reach for his dreams to become an astronaut.

It’s all wrapped up in beautiful illustrations and accompanied with photographs from his childhood and magnificent shots of Earth from outer space that is going to give you an out-of-this-world experience. So, grab your spacesuits and dive into Scott Kelly’s adventures as he takes us into the stars!

July 2018 Activities

For the month of July, the LRC had various activities as we celebrated the National Children’s Book Day and the Jesuit Heritage Month.

It was during the first assembly in July when the Jesuit Heritage Month was launched. The LRC did an I-Spy Iggy Trivia Contest that lasted for three weeks.
