We would like to congratulate Katerina Pimstein for her well-deserved offer from Oriel College, Oxford University. She will be studying French and Italian Literature. We are pleased but not surprised by her success.
Ci siamo fatti gli auguri col cuore, e col cuore gli studenti del Vittoria hanno cantato, suonato, fatto giochi di magia, e raccolto 500 euro per beneficenza dalla vendita di panettoncini per un break natalizio durante l’intervallo. La cifra sarà devoluta al Reparto di Neuropschiatria Infantile dell’Ospedale Infantile Regina Margherita e utilizzata per l’acquisto di attrezzature della “Scuola in Ospedale”.
Ma torniamo alla festa, di cui il Talent Show organizzato dai rappresentanti d’istituto è stato la parte più apprezzata e applaudita. I giovani talenti del Vittoria si sono esibiti in improvvisazioni jazz alla tastiera, in pezzi da solisti e in duetti che hanno rivelato interpreti di eccezionale bravura, e Giulia, prestigiatrice d’eccezione ci ha lasciato a bocca aperta con i suoi straordinari trucchi di magia. Sono stati tutti talmente applauditi che è stato davvero difficile decidere chi avesse preso più applausi. La prima e la seconda classificata, Siria e Matilde, ci hanno regalato momenti di grande emozione, con il loro timbro capace di toccare il cuore e con la loro ottima tecnica vocale, e Lorenzo, terzo classificato, si è rivelato un vero funambolo della tastiera.
Non sono mancati gli applausi anche per gli studenti che hanno conseguito le certificazioni linguistiche e che hanno raggiunto brillanti risultati alle Olimpiadi della Fisica e della Matematica, tanto che altri compagni, più dotati per le discipline umanistiche, hanno deciso di iscriversi alle prossime Olimpiadi d’Italiano.
Tanti auguri di buone feste a tutti!
The house was packed on November 14th when “All Eyes On Me” made its debut at the Teatro Superga in Nichelino.
The musical was brilliantly written, directed, choreographed and performed by Edoardo Tesio a 2nd IB student at the Vittoria International School. Giulia Schwartz, 2nd IB, captivated the audience as the Magician, adding mystery to the plot.
We are very proud of the hard work both students put into this performance while maintaining exceptional results in their school work. The monies collected at the show will be donated to the Non-profit organization Io sto con Regina Margherita. The funds will be used for the day hospital of neuropsychiatry which, among other things, helps victims of bullying to to recover their self-esteem.
So far our students have been accepted to NYU, UCL, and Kings College. These results are a promising beginning to the admissions season. We are proud of the hard work and accomplishments of our students.
Tuesday, October 24th at 17:30 Deborah Gutowitz, the Coordinator of the IB and IGCSE program at the Vittoria International School, will be outlining the procedures and the pitfalls to choosing which course and which school is best for you. Research skills as well as, deadlines, admissions tests and general requirements will be discussed.
Choosing what and where to study is one of the first significant life choices that our students make. As the protagonist in the process, it is both exciting and frightening for them. We at Vittoria would like to give our students the support and tools they need to make good choices and prepare strong applications.
The presentation is open to the Parents and Students from the Vittoria Liceo Europea (4th and 5th year) and Vittoria International School (IB) only.
The Vittoria International School has been chosen as a Pilot School, and the only school in Italy, for the IB exploration of moving final exams from hand written to Online Assessment. An IB Consultant spent two days with us, interviewing the Coordinator , teachers and technical staff in order to analyze possible advantages and disadvantage to moving the IB Assessment online. This is the first part of the evaluation procedure which may take several years to implement. The timeline is not clearly defined yet, but we are happy to be an active part of the process at its earliest stages.
Wednesday, October 18, the 1st IB students will have the honor of taking a mathematics class with Lambrecht Spijkerboer. Mr. Spijkerboer is a Mathematician and international specialist in developing and improving teaching techniques in Mathematics.
