High School Art show and Student Council Competition

Well, this post was stuck in a cyber black hole. Now it is back. This content below reflects my final week teaching at the International Community School of Addis Ababa in Ethiopia. I have since returned to Alexandria, Egypt to teach Art.

The first semester art show was success so I figured we should have another to end the second semester considering I was teaching new groups of students. Additionally StuCo had our annual Art Competition the same night. Not many submissions this year due to a lack of planning and final exams. I've included some of my Year 1 IB students work in the show. Several teachers brought their classes by. My Grade 7/8 Video Production class showed their shorts.

Again, facilities was an issue so it was in my classroom/science room/history room-don't worry, in two years once the construction is done, we'll all have our own space once again. Enjoy the evidence below.
