So far this year, we have had very interesting circle days. It is an activity that everyone looks forward to and it is a great way to get to know each other outside of the academic context. Students write anonymous questions or comments on slips of paper and then place it in the center basket. The questions are then read out loud and students get to respond and give their opinions. We have had many thought provoking discussions about many topics. Posted by Picasa
I almost forgot that we had circle day with the German students from our sister school in Lohne, Germany (the girl in the red and black strips, the blond in the blue sweater on the right and the blond boy in the black shirt on the far right). It was a very interesting experience because the Germans had much to say about the differences in our culture. The most eye raising thing about their visit was the information that they gave us about their school.
Many of these students are very serious about their studies and have very different academic goals.
