Ice-skating at the Gondolania Ice Rink at Villaggio Mall

On Tuesday 14th of January, Preschool 4 students experienced ice-skating at the Gondolania Ice Rink at Villaggio Mall as part of their unit provocation, Weather and Seasons. This experience aligned with this unit’s central idea, ‘Weather can influence the way people go about their daily lives’.

As a learning community dedicated to 21st century international mindedness, exposing our students to as many national and cross-cultural opportunities will contribute to our students’ development as global citizens. In addition, this provocation allowed students the opportunity to explore how ice-skating contributes to a healthy physical lifestyle while they had a very good time.
