Early Learning (Ages 3 -4) is a child's first exposure to education, and it lays down the foundation to develop socially, emotionally and academically. Guided play is a core component of our programme. Play fuels the imagination and helps children to be active, to connect, to be engaged and to give meaning to learning.
At CSM we are proud to welcome families from all over the world as we strive to foster intercultural mindedness. With over 30 different nationalities, 50% of the students are international.
Last week our Middle School students went on a trip to Oxy.gen. An innovative futuristic structure that hosts science labs. Students discovered how oxygen can create energy and they even experimented with plant pigmentation. #csm #canadianschool #oxygen #ibworldschool #learn
This week, Grade 1 students went to visit the Shirin tulip farm to extend their knowledge and understanding of plants and how they grow. They also had a painting lesson with an artist that allowed them to explore shapes and colours and also learn how to add depth and shadow. Students even got to pick their own tulips!
Yesterday, our Grade 2 students had a memorable field trip at the Boccatorta Outdoor education farm. Students used their critical thinking skills to accomplish team goals such as building a wheelbarrow or getting water from a well using a pulley. What a great way to extend and apply their theoretical knowledge of simple machines to the real world!
Congratulations to our Grade 12 IB Visual Arts students Martina and Diana for showcasing their art at the Federica Ghizzoni Gallery in Milan.

In case you are wondering, both painting were sold! #csm #ibschool #art #canadianschoolofmilan
This term Grade 5 students are studying the Ancient Romans. To enhance their learning experience they had to complete a set of STEAM activities on this topic. From building models of the colosseum with recycled materials or clay, to writing poems and travel guides or songs, students had a wonderful time presenting their projects to their peers. #csm #canadianschoolofmilan #steam #history #education #learning #ibworldschool
