  • 1. 26 NOVEMBER 2015 ISSUE View this email in your browser Special Assembly from our students, celebrating the National Teachers Day (11/25)   With so many great things happening this week, I would say it's the perfect week to end the month. Our Primary students led a special assembly dedicated to our teachers to celebrate “Hari  Guru  Nasional“  (National  Teachers  Day)  and  our  High School  Green  Generation  students  are  now  embarking  their global  crusade  to  Paris  to  joining  the  world's  most  important climate conference, the COP21.  We  also  had  two  wonderful  HS  performances  this  week,  the 'Noble  Material'  (that  will  also  be  performed  in  COP21)  and the HS Broadway play. Adding to the already busy week, our Middle School student went historical with a special medieval banquet earlier today. We  will  close  the  week  with  two  important  events,  the Saraswati  Ceremony  on  Saturday  and  the  Global  Climate Change March on Sunday. Everyone is welcome to join these U P C O M I N G E V E N T S TOMORROW Grade 5 Assembly | 2:30pm | Sangkep SAT 28 NOV Saraswati Ceremony | 09:30 | HoS SUN 29 NOV Climate Change Walk | 07:00 | Pererenan Beach MON 30 NOV Parent Yoga | 08:15am | Yoga Studio Parent Field Trip | 09:00 - 2:00 | Emporium Adventures Zumba | 02:00pm | Yoga Studio WED 02 DEC Parent Yoga | 08:15 | Yoga Studio Zumba | 02:00pm | Yoga Studio THU 3 DEC GSPA Meeting | 08:45 | Yoga Studio Contemporary Dance | 02:00 pm | Sangkep Kids Skills Workshop | Time: TBC | Warung 2nd floor FRIDAY 04 DEC Subscribe Share Past Issues Translate
  • 2. events!  Ibu Suci Ratri  Bamboopalooza | 02:00pm | Green School Farmer's Market | 02:00pm | Green School F R O M I B U L E S L I E Acting On One's Passions Effectively and With Confidence How do you show learning at Green School High School? I am asked this question regularly. My answer is: "When a student engages passionately in experiences, projects, ideas, and skills, they are learning." And then I say: "When they engage effectively (with knowledge, confidence and humility) with a goal to make a positive contribution to their personal growth, their community and their world, they are thriving." Because some post-graduation pathways require examinations, Green School High School still prepares students for some of these exams. We facilitate the SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test from North America) exam on Bali. Many results have been exceptionally high, and, on average, our students perform 200 points above world average.
