Project Forum 8th and 9th 2018
Eighth: Migration as a social phenomenon and the influence on worldwide cultural identity
This project focused on three aspects of Migration, causes and effects, Cultural background and Gastronomy, in order to provide cohesiveness. Our aim was to engage students in exploring the human face of immigration. Through interviews, literature circle reading, and field experiences, students better understood the challenges that immigrants face and their perspectives on life in Ecuador. Students learnt about the history of various immigrant groups and explored how immigration influences our local community.
Ninth: Mindfulness, The cure for the daily struggle.
Students recognized and understood the effects of stress on their daily lives. Mindfulness, yoga, taichi and art are proposed as ways to battle stress and anxiety.
