We were very happy and excited for the end of the year show. For our special audience, we were actors, dancers and musicians!
End of school year show 2017/2018
Last day of school 2017/2018
The Italian İzmir Consul Luigi Iannuzzi and the President of Arkas Education and Cultural Foundation Lucien Arkas gave us the report cards. We sang all together and it was a beautiful day to finish another school year.
Il Maggio dei Libri 2018
We never get tired of reading! We decided to join the Italian National Campaign for improving reading as an element of personal and collective growth. “Il Maggio dei Libri” is an initiative promoted by MiBACT. We read our book in a beautiful atmosphere outside the school at Kültür Park with Maria Elisa Sponza, President of Smirne Com.it.es.
Ege Orman Vakfı in our school
Ege Orman Vakfı taught us the importance of forest and trees through a nice Power Point presentation. Then, we planted in our pots pine tree seeds. We are looking forward to see them grow up.
İzmir Fransız Kültür Merkezi – "Micro-Folie/Digital Museum"
At the French Culture Center we immersed in art: thanks to the multimedia experience we analyzed some paintings and then reconstructed them as puzzle.
Elementary school students have participated to “Libriamoci. Reading days in schools”, an initiative approach to reading asked by the Italian Ministry of Education and various Italian cultural associations. Students have participated to this activity between the 23rd of October and 26th of October 2017. Readings were held by parents and volunteer readers, including Dr. Lia Lodovici Kars, director of the Association of Italian Friendship in Izmir.
Izmir Opera House - "Magic World"
The İzmir Opera House has fascinated us with its architecture. We were immersed in polyphonic music, into the colors and dance. It seemed to be in a fairy tale.
We had fun with jokes and riddles! All of us had worn colorful costumes.
International puppet’s day
Our attention was on the puppets and the show was really fun.
Landscapes of water from the Arkas collection
We admired and analysed the sea in different paintings. It’s interesting noticing how the artists’ talent, using different colours and techniques can create many interpretations of water. We also enjoyed producing our own works with different artistic techniques.
Last day of school
After receiving our report card from the Italian Consul of Izmir, we were happy to start our holidays!
End of school year show
We shared with our families what we learned during our school year.
We visited the zoo and its different habitats.
Arkas Sanat Merkezi - Victor Vasarely
We prepared our work using geometrical shapes inspired by the artist Vasarely
International puppet’s day
We enjoyed the show a lot and had lots of fun.
Arkas Sanat Merkezi – The master of the light
We admired the light used by the painters art work in the exposition. We were impressed to see the beautiful illustrations of the light and shadow used by painters. They are real masters!
We played with the light and we drew beautiful flowers.
We have celebrated the carnival with traditional music and dessert. We prepared our own masks at school. We had fun playing ‘’Pignatta’’.
Arkas Maritime History Center
- We discovered many things, such as; different flags are used to communicate on board and that colors and symbols are very important.
- It was interesting to learn, how different parts of the ship are named and what to do in case of danger. It was really exciting to wear a real life jacket.
- The scale models of the ships were magical! They were equal to the originals but much smaller!
Arkas Art Center – Anatolian Travels
- We put the Ottoman life on stage: sitting at the table like the Ottomans was very different, just as the food and objects.
- Anatolia keeps its charm still now. It influences the modern world with its culture and history.
