The Official Opening of the STEAM+ laboratory
On the 3rd of November, we held a presentation of the School's Strategic Development Plan and the official opening of our new STEAM+ laboratory. The Headmaster of Haileybury Astana, Mr John Coles, opened the event with a brief explanation of the school's vision for Haileybury for the next five years. Then, the parents visited the STEAM+ and Art departments.
The STEAM+ laboratory was officially opened by the CEO of Astana Hub, Magzhan Madiyev (@madiyev) and Mr Coles. Mr Madiyev was impressed with the facilities of the laboratory, and its future perspectives. Almira Ali, the founder of the Big Dream Lab project, also attended our event. She remarked that such laboratories are the foundation of the development of the digital sphere in Kazakhstan.
The STEAM+ area was full of artworks and installations created by our Senior and Junior School students. The Art Department prepared an art performance with a pendulum by using the “Swinging paint can'' art technique. During the event, parents had an opportunity to observe STEAM+ space and had a chance to speak with core teachers about the curriculum.
Despite Astana's "British" weather, all guests attended our evening. We want to express our gratitude to parents, special guests and our community for participating and supporting our achievements. We have more exciting things to come!
