Bear Hunt!

April 2nd, 2020|

No Easter Egg Hunt this year? How about a Bear Hunt instead??

Students and staff of St. George’s International School are invited to collaborate on publishing our very own ebook! Our book is inspired by We’re Going on a Bear Hunt by Michael Rosen and Helen Oxenbury.

Submit to the librarian a photo of a teddy bear hiding in or around your house. Make sure you include your name and the location of the teddy bear! mbromo[at]stgeorges.ch

Dad Jokes

March 31st, 2020|

Did you ever notice that Dads tell really corny jokes? Check out 10 classic “Dad Jokes” on the new library website page for Families (sgislibrary.ch/families).

Does your Dad tell goofy jokes? Submit one to the librarian, and we’ll publish it on the library website!

Families page

March 27th, 2020|

Families (sgislibrary.ch/families) is a new page on the St. George’s library website. It contains useful resources to help parents keep their children engaged, intellectually stimulated, and healthy during the school closure. Hyperlinks lead to freely available interesting, educational, and age-appropriate internet resources.

Copyright and Fair Use

March 24th, 2020|

Check out the new page on the SGIS library website about Copyright and Fair Use (sgislibrary.ch/research/copyright). It’s a good idea for teachers and students to have a basic understanding of these principles, especially during distance learning.
