Dear QSI Bratislava Community,

Thank you to all of the parents--and students--who met with our teachers during Parent-Teacher Conferences last week...connecting and coordinating with parents is integral to long term student success at QSI Bratislava!

Also, we look forward to welcoming Quality Schools International President and Co-founder Mr. Jim Gilson and his wife Margery to our school on Sunday, 4 November and Monday, 5 November.  Joining Mr. and Mrs. Gilson on this visit will be QSI Director of Operations Mr. Dan Bastien and European Regional Supervisor Mr. Tim Kruger.  This is an exciting time to show our beautiful new campus, share our stories of success and for these QSI managers to meet the wonderful students, parents and teachers of QSI International School of Bratislava.

On another note, we are pleased to welcome Ms. Elizabeth Scott as our newest faculty member.  Ms. Scott will be teaching the 12-year-old Literature, Writing and Cultural Studies courses, as well as, Literature II and Research.  Ms. Scott has extensive teaching experience in the US and has also taught at QSI schools in Albania, Kazakhstan and in China.  On a related note, we wish Mr. Christian Weber all the best as he has accepted a transfer to QSI International School of Shenzhen (China).

We are looking for an apartment for Ms. Scott (with small dog) in Samorin.  Please let us know if you know of any available apartments.

Have a wonderful Fall Break.  We look forward to welcoming you all back on Monday, 5 November.

Kind regards,

Daniel Blaho, Director

This week, the 4-year-old students have been learning about people in their community and neighborhood who help them.  We talked about different job categories of people who help keep us safe, people who keep us healthy, and people who perform services. We discussed firefighters and police officers keeping us safe as well as the important role that doctors have in our community. The hedgehogs built a police station and a firehouse using boxes, bags, paper, crayons, toy cars, and trucks. 
They also enjoyed role-playing the story,  “Five Little Monkeys.”  
                                        The 7 year-old class is learning about  matter, it's properties, and how it changes in Science right now.  More specifically, this week we have been investigating how objects can be disassembled and made into new objects.  To test this out,  we tried making an object with sticks and play dough.  After we made an object, we took it apart and made another object with the same materials.    Our observations showed us that you can make many different objects, using the same materials, but assembling them in different ways.  We also spoke about how architects design and draw plans and make models to show how a structure will look and how they use sets of smaller pieces to build different models.  We really enjoy learning and fun hands-on activities like this!                                    
Throughout the year, the 9YO and 10YO classes join together for team building activities.  Our most recent challenge was to build the longest paper chain possible, using only one piece of construction paper, 12 inches of tape, scissors, a pencil, and a ruler. The students were put into groups of three and had to design, plan, and build their chain in 30 minutes. The students did a wonderful job of working together and engineering their designs. A special shout out to Reegan, Alex, and Diana who built the longest chain!
The 12 year old class has been busy!!  They finished their Narrative essays for Writing class and began Persuasive paragraphs.  Within the last week they made presentations on Aztec civilizations and have started on the Incas.  In Literature they are discussing Character, and read the Rudyard Kipling story of "Rikki-Tikki-Tavi."  They then got to watch the short cartoon of the Kipling story.  Francesca was the winner of the first "Bear" in our class for the Kindness & Politeness Success Orientation!

Working Hard – Right up to Fall Break

As they worked diligently on their exams, Mr. Plunkett’s IB Chemistry class couldn’t wait for Fall Break to begin. Having spent 3 intense weeks studying about chemical bonding and molecular structures, the class got to demonstrate their knowledge on the exam…and then CELEBRATE for a whole week without any school or homework. These students have earned a well-deserved break!
