READING IN PAIRS
Our school participates in an educational programme called Reading in pairs. Its objective is to develop the enjoyment of reading learning of those students belonging to 3rd level thanks to 5th level students action. 5th level students act as tutors and help them when reading by providing reading strategies and encouragement.
We are ready to welcome the birds coming back from winter. Our students made houses for them.
Our school meets the witnesses of the Second World War
This year our school joined the project “Commemorate the war to celebrate peace”, promoted by the Association “SiciliAntica”. In the month of February our Institute invited Mr. Fonti Vincenzo and Ms. Romano Maria Concetta, witnesses of the Second World War and the landing of the Allies in Sicily.
The event took place in the Auditorium, where they spoke to the students about the incisive experiences of his own life during the War.
