Shakespeare: A Midsummer Night’s Dream

Melissa Bagg, Sophie Jaschok and a group of 21 players are eagerly preparing for the staging of the Ecole’s Annual Shakespeare Production. This year we are excited to bring you A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But! With an interesting and (well-timed) twist!

The Geography of Food

Sarah Schnack, one of our newest faculty members at the Ecole, recently joined us from The International School of Panama. This term she is teaching an exciting new course called, The Geography of Food.

In this course designed for younger learners, our students are using Michael Polin’s The Omnivore’s Dilemma as their guiding text. Following the structure of Polin’s book, the students are learning about the industrial food system, alongside different modalities of food production: industrial organic; local, small-scale farming; and finally, hunting and foraging.

Post Quarantine Period

We’re all celebrating here at the Ecole because we’ve completed our post-arrival quarantine! We had a chat with Karuna Richard Vinhateiro, Assistant Dean of Students, and one of the Family Heads of Shanti House to get a closer perspective on what the experience of quarantine was like for the students at the Ecole.
