Every Friday our Lower School has a special sharing assembly where they invite guests to share their inquiries about the world. Last week, our lower school at QAIS had a special guest during their sharing assembly. Mountaineer and QAIS high school science teacher Mr. Brendan Madden dropped by for a quick presentation on his 2018 Mt. Everest summit.  The theme of the talk was in alignment with the PYP learner profile theme of caring, a focus of their learning this year. At the end of his fantastic presentation, Mr. Madden entertained questions that the students had practiced and written in advance. Students also learned how to use a microphone and how to ask questions in front of a large crowd. For some, this was an Everest-like feat, that increased their confidence and pride.
