LETTER FROM NEW YORK

LETTER FROM NEW YORK

It is with great pleasure that we publish an email sent to one of our teachers from an alumnus who graduated from our IB course in 2015. A wonderful example of academic success and the realization of a dream. Brava Maria Consolata and thank you for letting us participate in your happiness.

“Dear teacher,

How are you? When I manage to come to Turin, it is for less than a week. For this reason, I have not had a chance to stop by and say hello. I thought I would write you an email to update you on my various adventures since I left the IB.

The first stop was in London where I finished my BA in War Studies at Kings College London. I finished in March, and I am looking forward to graduation in July.

During my vacations in the last three years, I have lived briefly in different countries.
The first year I studied in the Netherlands and Berlin for a few months.
The second year I worked as a strategist in South Africa at Cape Town, on the Human Rights Commission of South Africa. I worked for the Department of Law and Advocacy. My first role was as a consultant to individuals whose rights had been violated, subsequently, to decrease the frequency of human rights abuses I designed an actuation plan in the field, depending on the location, I interacted with a wide range of different people.
Now I am in New York at the Mission of the Sovereign Order of Malta at the UN! What an exceptional Internship, I could not have asked for more. Since I was seven years old, I have dreamed of working here so it is indeed a dream come true.

In September I will move once again, just so that I don’t leave a city off my list. In Geneva, I will start my Masters in International Affairs at the Graduate Institute. They offered me a part-time internship today at a mission in the Geneva United Nations.

After this Masters, which lasts two years, I will work with an international organization similar to the one I am at now. Hopefully, before then, I will manage to find the time to come and see you!

Voilà! Here is the summary of my wanderings over the last three years. How are you? How are the projects for the Quotidiano in Classe going? It is essential to understand Dante, but it is also important to know what is happening now in the world that surrounds us. Keep up the good work…many students will be grateful! I am sending you a picture of me now at the United Nations, that way you can add it to the photo you have of me at the Comenius Project which we did together in 2014!

Regards

Maria Consolata Spano| BA (Hons) War Studies King’s College London| Italian, English, French, German

Un’indimenticabile festa natalizia dei talenti

Un’indimenticabile festa natalizia dei talenti

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!

All Eyes on Me

All Eyes on Me

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.
