Elephant Trunk Awards and Book Character Parade

The culmination of our month long Festival of Children’s Literature arrived with our Elephant Trunk Awards and Book Character Parade. The winning books this year are: 

01 Elc Elephant Trunk Awards 1

Mell Fell (K1-K2), Margaret’s Unicorn (Y1-3), and The Sad Little Fact (Y4-6) – worthy recipients voted for by all the children! 

Braving the summer heat, our children and teachers brought us so many colourful characters that we cherish; can you spot amongst them a Hungry Caterpillar, DogMan, Jack and the Beanstalk, Dr. Seuss’s eponymous hero (or two!), and some visitors from Alice’s Wonderland.

Co-Constructing a Climate-Resilient Future: Putting Our Trust in the Children
On UN Earth Day this week, our Head of The City School, Dr. Lea, and our Y1-2 Project Coordinator, Ms. Sam, presented a webinar to the international educational and development community entitled ‘Co-Constructing a Climate-Resilient Future: Putting Our Trust in the Children’, with a participating audience of professionals from Bangladesh to Ethiopia, Nepal to the US. Hosted by the Asia-Pacific Regional Network for Early Childhood, and in collaboration with Save the Children, our educators showcased how ELC’s The City School is committed to empowering children to prepare for climate resilience and work for sustainable development, and how our Reggio Emilia approach to education cultivates those skills and character for our children to be world-changers.
