Today I am happy to share the good news that marks another milestone of success for our students and our school. Last year’s project, which was carried out with the present Junior 6s was awarded 2nd place for Innovative projects award, which was organized by the Ministry of education. This, gives me personally the excitement and enthusiasm to strive for more and it never marks the end of a journey but the beginning of a new and more exciting one! On a different note, today I had to post the following message to others out there on my FB wall, as while we truly believe that learning with a difference is a way forward, supporting other subjects and taking learning to a different level of attainment, unfortunately I do encounter educators like me that find it hard to believe, that what we do truly works! I can only reply by saying, try it, test it with your students and then I am ready to discuss 😊 I feel so blessed to be supported and mentored by amazing people, as per post. Throughout the years I ‘ve learnt to apply a one way vision, that of looking forward and never turn back. It is a learning journey…..

For the sceptic, who do not believe in applying gamification in education…… I tell you, you are missing a whole undiscovered world!!! Today our students got the privilege and the honour to be directly trained by the most amazing person, Stephen Reid. They got to build their own QrCodes in Minecraft and guess what..they actually worked. So proud of all our students. You are true pioneers to modified learning. Ohh I feel so blessed!! Special thanks goes to Vanessa Antoniadou- Microsoft for organizing all this, Stephen- founder and director of Immersive Minds, Scotland, for being the amazing and inspiring person he is and Natasha La Rosa for always being there and supporting all the crazy ideas 😋 for our next one 😉
