From the Student Support Services Desk
“Working together, helping our students realise their true potential.”
In some parts of the world, October is the Learning Disabilities Awareness month for 2020. The Student Support Services department took this week to build more awareness towards Learning Disabilities in a small way which we hope will have a positive impact on our school community.

Every year Year 12's go on an induction camping trip in the 1st week of school but unfortunately this year due to Covid-19 they had to miss out on the fun yet insightful trip. The main objective of the induction programme is to introduce students to the key information about the IBDP, CAS, ToK, EE and the IB learner profile attributes. This is also probably one of the only times when direct reference is made to the 10 learner profile attributes and all the activities are aimed at stimulating bonding amongst the students and developing an insight into the learner profile attributes

Students in Year 1, 5, and 6 joined us and it was exciting to see them come in smiling and eager to join their friends and just be back at school. Teachers were beaming too and are very happy to have their students with them.

Over the past month, we have seen large increases in the numbers of coronavirus cases here in Zambia. We had more than 400 cases reported on several days and the total number of cases showed exponential growth. Exponential growth in anything is usually unsustainable so eventually, the number of coronavirus cases must reach a maximum and thereafter decline.

As IMYC teachers and students, we have indeed adapted to our situation and the only difference is that we have to interact remotely. The rigor and seriousness of our learning has continued and we are happy that everyone could adapt in such a short space of time.
Stay safe and remember to adapt as the situation evolves.

Distance learning has its own advantages and disadvantages. We are happy we are in an era, where learning still takes place in these trying times. We (as educators) are getting "tech-savvy" too, but we miss the physical presence of our students. Man is a social animal and yet in these circumstances, we have to avoid doing what we love most - socializing!

Over the past few days I have been scanning the interactions between teachers and students in their online classes. Some of the questions asked by students (especially our Middle Schoolers) have brought back memories of me putting things to get as a teen; models/bicycles/furniture etc

This morning I was thrilled to see all the DP1 online on Google Meet ready to get to work! We shared and brainstormed ways to complete their CAS programme during the current challenging circumstances and they will be adding more to the following list of ideas for next week's session:
-creating a blog (daily journal) about learning online
-creating videos to help people use online tools to communicate, teach and learn
-set up a mini cross country course in their garden for themselves and/or their siblings
-come up with a regular homemade gym plan for the next few weeks
-compose a rap song about the coronavirus
-start a vegetable patch in the garden or on a balcony
-learning how to play a musical instrument
-learning how to cook italian dishes (to make homemade pasta, pizza...)
As I explained to the students this morning, many things will count for CAS, provided that they can show evidence of some planning and that they have a goal to attain.
The students are also expected to continue writing their CAS reflections on Managebac.

Materials have arrived for the construction of culverts at our entrances along Nangwenya Road. The pipes shown in the picture will be laid in the drainage ditch so that our entrance ramps can be constructed over them. Very little work remains before our gates can be reopened; however the uneven pace of work makes it difficult to estimate a completion date.
