Celebrating Israel

Year 8 Israel Expo 

On Thursday 5 May 2022, which was actually Yom Ha’atzmaut, Year 8 participated in the Israel Expo. For the entire of Term 1, we collected research and writing about our chosen Israeli topic of interest. We then had to gather this all and turn it into an interesting, informative and engaging stand.

During Period 6 and lunch we set up our stalls and got ready for the next three hours. Kornmehl, Year 3 and Year 7 all came throughout the school day and engaged with all of the wonderful stalls. They were able to learn a lot about Israel such as their defence system, different foods and different sports. There were so many different stalls with plenty of information about Israel, so it was a really fun experience for both the students and the people running the stalls. After school was over we had a short break to tidy our stalls in order to get them ready for the parents. 

Our parents, other students and teachers came to the show to see the hard work that we had completed. It was really fun and many stalls had engaging activities such as games and cool souvenirs.

We would like to thank all the Year 8 teachers for helping us and supporting us through the process and bringing together such a wonderful night. We would also like to thank Ms Levin-Kahn and Mr Case for their help, Mrs Levin for taking all the photos, and the Maintenance Team for setting up the MPH for us. We wish the Year 7s luck in their Israel Expo next year!
