Grade 3 Visits Palaeontology Museum
Last Thursday Grade 3 went on a field trip to the Palaeontology Museum in Asti. They were guided through the museum by a very knowledgeable guide who explained the various types of fossils and where they were found. The students then watched a short video on a paleontological dig in a quarry in Asti where a whale was found. The best part was engaging in 5 different hands-on activities, sorting fossils and real objects, reconstructing a skeleton, sorting and matching activities but most especially, making our own ‘fossils’ with clay and moulds!
IST Places in Local Chess Tournament
Two teams of IST students participated this past Wednesday in a local Chess Tournament at PalaRuffini Stadium in Torino with over 400 students from other schools. This is the 5th year running that IST has participated. Both teams did a great job, performing well under pressure. For the first time, our Middle School team placed third in the their age group, thereby qualifying for the regional tournament which will take place in the coming weeks.
