As the COVID-19 pandemic has closed schools and led to a rapid transition to online classes, GEMS Educators have been working hard to adapt our curriculum to support distance learning. They have also been making time to organise fun whole school events to help students stay connected and engaged despite the distance.
In the past couple of weeks, we have seen students participating in various activities from showcasing their creativity through “Spread the positivity movement” to decorating doors as their favourite book covers and dressing up as famous book characters during our Virtual Book Week. If you thought that our team ran out of ideas of what we can do as a community, then we are here to surprise you!
From Monday, 4th to Friday, 8th May, all students and teachers are encouraged to participate in the GEMS Spirit Week celebrations. Each day is dedicated to a special character or a theme. Dress up, impress and show the GEMS Spirit!
Spend the entire day wearing your favourite pyjamas! Isn’t it great?
If you are a fan of the legendary Star Wars, May the 4orce be with you! Surprise your class and dress up as your favourite Star Wars character.
Express your wild side! All students and teachers are encouraged to join the class with the craziest and most creative hair design that they can imagine - hair gel, unique hair colours and even toys incorporated in your hairstyles are all fair game.
Not a fan of crazy hairstyles? It’s okay. Crazy Hats are welcomed to join the class too.
Dress up as your favourite Superhero! Who is your favourite Superhero?
DJ Justo has recorded a session for the GEMS Dance Party! Stay tuned. More details are coming soon!
