“You walk around the corner and all you hear are engaged learners,” noted Mr. Arnot with a smile. It’s true, this afternoon our 11s are entirely immersed in making rotan bracelets. It’s very cool to watch them help one another, persevere, and be completely in the moment as they make a craft to adorn their wrists. Students loved engaging in this cultural activity that gave them a calm environment to decompress from the day, reflect on their experiences, and hone a new skill.
