IB Visual Artist - Xinyi (Cindy) Li

Posted by KES Blogging Team on May 2, 2020 6:57:06 PM

I hope you enjoy our virtual exhibitions. We admire not only our students' skills and creativity but also their courage in sharing their work with us. Please join me in congratulating our 2020 IB Visual Arts students on their hard work and achievements.

I would like to introduce IB Artist:  Xinyi (Cindy) Li 

While presenting my work, I want to show the audience the artistry of the Chinese culture and share more about myself and my experience. As a person that is dedicated to the color expression on the canvas, I love to use colors to show people the Chinese street scenes and flowers—the beauty of the eastern culture. I also want to show others the type of person I am through my drawings and the things that I love. After viewing my exhibition, I hope people will find that I am a person who loves taking photos, drawing and sharing my own culture.

They ran both together

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 19, 2020 5:12:00 PM

Just as we buried ourselves in the Passion of Christ during Holy Week, so now we run in the Resurrection of Christ. The classic Easter Gospel is all about running. Mary Magdalene coming to the tomb in the early morning finds the stone taken away from the sepulchre and runs to Simon Peter and John. “They ran both together,” John tells us in his Gospel, to the tomb. The Resurrections sets us in motion.

Remembering the Battle of Vimy Ridge

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 17, 2020 8:53:00 PM

This is an historic day in Canada.  9 April 1917 was the start of a momentous campaign during the First World War, the Battle of Vimy Ridge. The decades since the Battle of Vimy Ridge have slipped by, but the legacy of the Canadians who accomplished so much in that important First World War battle lives on. Some say that Canada came of age as a country on those harsh April days in 1917.

To stay connected with our KES Families, we have been having weekly social media challenges with the winners receiving gift certificates to our KES School Store. Our very first challenge was “Show us your distance learning space”. Students, staff and families sent in pictures of their desks and where they’d be working for the upcoming weeks. The winner of our first contest was Cecilia Zhang, and here is a picture of her desk space from her home in China.

German Baking with Frau Stuart

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 13, 2020 8:52:00 AM

I hope that you are joyful and well and that you had a great week. Many of you were probably looking forward to today; not just because there is a mini-break coming up but also because many of us are looking forward to Easter and the festivities that come with it. I know that this year Easter will be quite different. We will not be able to celebrate it with friends and extended families. There will be no public Easter egg hunts and celebrations. However, I am sure that you will find ways to make the best of this situation as you have done so far. At least spring really seems to be in the air, and I hope that you will take time to enjoy the beautiful sun outside this weekend.

Life in Isolation

Posted by KES Blogging Team on Apr 10, 2020 8:09:00 AM

Life in isolation can be a downer, so we are doing our best to stay positive. We are keeping a daily routine of eating well, working hard on academics, getting a good dose of fresh air and exercise, and spending quality time together. Laughter and being silly helps us. It lifts our hearts. It connects us. We spent some time this past weekend putting   this video  together and we hope you like it. We hope it is the online equivalent of a big KES hug.
