Winter Jubileum Part 4

Floor 4 saw a flurry of visitors beneath the Modern Foreign Language ‘growth mindset’ tree where students’ growth mindset slogans in French, German and English fluttered from real tree branches.

A rich, deep and at times provocative display from our Historians showcased their Artwork and interpretation of growth as seen in the trenches at Hartmannswillerkopf and the wider context of the first World War. While some exceptionally creative pieces from our Advanced level historians depicted censorship through Art and examined how the dada art movement reflected cultural changes in the Weimer republic. Meanwhile, our geographers had taken the theme of growth in relation to population growth using both paper and 3D images to represent population growth in a variety of countries.

Winter Jubileum Part 3

Gardening club, STEAM and Double Science embarked on a joint project looking at Tropisms and plant propagation. The focus was on the growth of plants in response to light gravity and touch and the resulting exhibition was a delightfully attractive set of vertical gardens. Growing crops vertically is a very topical theme as society looks to improve air quality in crowded inner cities and attract wildlife back to urban zones.

Biology teacher Carol Tye created a design competition between Science, Gardening club and STEAM. Students Louisa Hoffer and Alessia Dotti won the science design recognition for their vertical garden.

Lifecycles was another joint project between YR 1 IGCSE Double Science and Maths classes. In biology students learned about life cycles (plant and animal) and in Maths they were taught the equation for calculating % increase which they then used in calculating the % increase in growth at the different stages of the life cycle.

Das Jahr 2021 neigt sich langsam dem Ende zu.

Auch wenn 2021 nicht die erhoffte Rückkehr zur Normalität gebracht hat, so hoffen wir, dass Sie trotzdem schöne Momente und Erfolge in diesem Jahr erleben konnten.

Für Academia war das Jahr 2021 vor allem für unseren Standort in Winterthur mit vielen grossartigen Ereignissen verbunden. Mit der Eröffnung der Academia Bilingual School in Winterthur haben wir uns für einmal selbst beschenkt. Die Eulachstadt beherbergt nun zwei «Homes of Learning»: Bei Academia Integration ermöglichen wir fremdsprachigen Kindern seit 2018 einen erfolgreichen Einstieg in die Regelschule, während an unserer neuen Schule auf allen Stufen der obligatorischen Schulzeit zweisprachig unterrichtet wird.

Die beiden Schulen in Winterthur sowie unsere 23 weiteren Schulen schweizweit wären ohne Sie – liebe Kundinnen, Kunden, Partnerinnen und Partner – nicht möglich. Für die wunderbare Zusammenarbeit im Jahr 2021 danken wir Ihnen daher herzlich und wünschen Ihnen frohe Festtage und alles Gute im neuen Jahr.

Winter Jubileum Part 2
Floor 3 is where our Science labs can be found. Chemistry A level developed their research skills deepening their understanding of the scientific process and how it relates to learning by focusing on the development of the atomic model. Whereas A level Psychology focussed on the development of the brain where students analysed evidence provided from scans of brains in various stages of development and then compared these findings to theories by leading developmental psychologists such as Piaget and Vygotsky.

Winter Jubileum Part 1
Our Winter Jubileum was designed as an event where parents, students, teachers, and those interested in our school could connect. It was cold and dark outside but inside our 7 storey school Christmas lights twinkled, corks popped, galactic cocktails were created and the atmosphere was warm.

Most people started on our 6th floor. People could wander at their leisure into the auditorium where our STEAM club had some interesting and creative ideas to help raise money for their balloon launch into space. One stand hosted their raffle where the big prizes were snapped up. The second stand was a festive bar selling drinks. Beneath a blazing log fire projected to the wall our STEAM bartenders Sidd and George did a roaring trade with their galactic cocktails. The STEAM team successfully raised over 500 CHF that evening and are very close to their target of 700 CHF so that they can proceed with the next step of their ambitious project.

For the first time we held the Academia Bake-off instead of the Secret Santa Lunch. So many wonderful creations were made, it was great to see how creative our students are. The winner is Madi, she created a delicious masterpiece! You can see her cake and further impressions of the bake-off in the pictures.

We already look forward to next year's Bake-off!

In October we had the unique chance to visit the Tonhalle Zurich. Some music enthusiasts signed up for it and had an exciting afternoon. They were the only spectators of this rehearsal and could enjoy the wonderful location and the unique sound. ... See more / Mehr sehenSee Less / Weniger sehen

Gut gerüstet an die Uni? - Podiumsdiskussion
Die Erwartungen an das künftige Studium sind hoch: endlich das studieren, was einen schon immer interessierte!
Der Alltag an der Uni oder Fachhochschule deckt sich mit diesen Vorstellungen jedoch nicht immer.

Zusammen mit hochkarätigen Podiumsgästen diskutieren wir an der Academia International School Basel über die Herausforderungen rund um die Schnittstelle Gymnasium – Universität.

Es sprechen:
- Susan Gasser, Schweizerische Molekularbiologin, Mitglied des ETH-Rats
- Ulrich Schmid, Slawist, Prorektor Aussenbeziehungen HSG
- Matthias Angst, Rektor Kantonschule Wohlen
- Moussab Katouh, Student ETHZ, Alumni Academia International School
Moderation: Jeannine Borer, Journalistin und Autorin

Welche Kompetenzen bringen erfolgreiche Studierende mit?
Ist der prüfungsfreie Hochschulzugang auch in Zukunft realistisch? Was wird in Zukunft an der Uni wichtig sein?
Wie schneiden Studierende mit einem internationalen Bildungshintergrund im Vergleich zu Schweizer Maturanden ab?

Wir freuen uns, Sie an dieser spannenden und anregenden Podiumsdiskussion zu begrüssen.

Eintritt frei. Der Anlass findet in deutscher Sprache statt. Türöffnung ab 17.30 Uhr.

Das Podium wurde abgesagt! Die aktuell ansteigenden Fallzahlen, eine neue Virusmutation und ein Quarantänefall liessen uns leider keine andere Wahl. Das Podium wird im Frühjahr 2022 nochmals neu lanciert.
