SIA Kicks Off School Spirit Week with Zoo-tastic Tuesday

Stepping Stone International Academy (SIA) embarked on an exciting journey today as it inaugurated its much-anticipated School Spirit Week with the theme "Zoo-tastic Tuesday." This vibrant event aims to raise awareness about animal conservation and celebrate the rich diversity of the animal kingdom.

Students at SIA immersed themselves in a half-day event dedicated to all things wild and wonderful. Dressed in an array of imaginative animal costumes, the students eagerly embraced the opportunity to channel their favorite creatures, while their dedicated teachers took on the role of zookeepers for the day.

But the excitement didn't stop there. Prior to the festivities, the SIA Student Government (SSG) organized face painting sessions and sold animal masks to eager students, ensuring that everyone could fully embrace the spirit of the occasion.

The day began with an opening ceremony led by Mr. Joe, the school principal. Following his remarks, Teacher Heather delivered a poignant devotion, emphasizing the importance of animal welfare and our responsibility as stewards of the earth. Drawing parallels between humans and animals, she reminded students of their duty to care for all creatures great and small, as part of God's creation.

With spirits high and enthusiasm abound, students eagerly participated in the thrilling game 'Animal Assemble'. Blindfolded and scattered across the basketball court, students were tasked with finding their group mates and grouping themselves using only their assigned animal sound. Laughter and excitement filled the air as teams raced against the clock. In a spirited competition, the Pink Team emerged victorious among the Kindergarten to Lower Elementary category, while the Higher Elementary to Secondary section saw a tie between the Blue and Black teams.

Following the exhilarating game, each team took to the stage for the 'Harmony of the Wild' event, showcasing their musical talents by rendering songs using animal sounds. While a variety of sounds echoed throughout the court, it was the ubiquitous 'meow' of cats that stole the show, leaving the audience thoroughly entertained.

To culminate the day's festivities, students had one final opportunity to shine during the 'Wild Impressions' segment. Walking down the runway, they modeled their costumes with confidence, embodying the spirit of the animals they had chosen with actions and corresponding sounds.

With Zoo-tastic Tuesday setting the stage, the rest of Spirit Week promises to be equally engaging, fostering school spirit and camaraderie among students and staff at Stepping Stone International Academy. As students reflect on today's festivities, one thing is certain - at SIA, learning is not just confined to the classroom; it's an immersive experience that fosters creativity, teamwork, and a deep appreciation for the world around us.

Stay tuned for more exciting updates as Stepping Stone International Academy continues to inspire and empower young minds on their educational journey.
