As the clock struck 1:30 p.m. on 5 February 2018, SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz erupted in excitement as students (some of whom were dressed up as one-hundred-year-old people) and staff began celebrating one hundred days since the opening of our state-of-the-art campus.
To mark this occasion, we decided to create an arts, crafts and laughs carousel whereby students enthusiastically participated in a range of activities which tested their physical endurance, motor-skills, team-work, communication and decision making. Students were handed a passport to get stamped after completing each activity and were then left to decide which activities they would try to complete for the rest of the day.
There was something for everyone: The one hundred day celebratory hats, goofy glasses, paper-chains and painting posters were all very popular and students loved showing off their funky and creative skills, much to the delight of Frau Engi, Summers and Stenzel.
"Big bold Bingo" provided the students with proof that numeracy can always be fun as Frau Oettinger put the students through their numerical paces. With "one hundred wishes", Herr Brunner gave the students a chance to think about a hundred things they would wish for and reflect on how to achieve their goals. "Work it out" with Ms. Bitton gave the students a chance to follow some dance routines, stretch their limbs and work-out. A nice warm-up or cool-down for those "monkey tag" lovers.
"Monkey Tag" tested students’ communication, team-work and parkour skills, as well as their physical and mental endurance. They had to attempt to avoid the hungry tigers for as long as possible, on an obstacle course created by grade 6 andsSecondary 1. It was great to see secondary 1 acting as responsible leaders!
Finally, at 3 p.m., the intense celebrations came to a close and we believe it’s only fair to say that all SIS students tried their best and played their part, making it a successful day in the history of SIS Pfäffikon-Schwyz.
