Yesterday,  I had a little goodbye class party since I am leaving CDNIS for Singapore in a few weeks.  I also made a short Speech to tell my classmates and teachers about how much fun I had in grade 5 and how much my class meant to me.  This year meant the world to me because it was a very remarkable year , we not only learned about global issues such as children’s rights under the UN Convention, we also learned about bodies of the opposite gender!!!  The Disco DJ’s were the only grade 5 class who made a class music video, totally original and super fun to take part!  Although it  feels like I will be losing many friends, I am still proud that I will soon be going to UWC and I will make new friends there…  I will really miss my friends and especially my teacher Ms Cahusac, SHE is what made our class the best one ever!!!  Goodbye, my mates :) :):):):):):)

“Since the whole grade 5 and 6 get to bring their Macbook Pro laptops home for the summer, on Tuesday June 1st, 2011, we all went to the LLAC for an internet safety talk to make sure that we learn how to use our computers safely.  We watched a few videos about internet safety, and I picked one that I found to be the most helpful.  Watch, enjoy and learn!”YouTube Preview Image
