Virtual Zambia-UN Day Link

This year has been unique in so many respects and if there is one positive thing that has come out of it, it’s the fact that we have learnt to rethink our ways of doing things and are discovering new, and maybe more efficient, ways of managing events.

Secondary Mid-Semester 1 Reports

In order to maximize the amount of  face to face SBL (school-based learning) time that students would have with their teachers before the Mid-Semester 1 Report, we decided to extend the Semester 1 assessment schedule until the end of this week.

This means that all students will have their Mid-Semester 1 Reports issued via ManageBac on Monday 26th October, some time after 16.00.

Mid-Semester 1 Student - Parent - Teacher  Conferences (SPTCs) will take place on Thursday 29th October from 14.00 - 16.00. 

In order to adhere to the health and safety requirements, teachers will remain in their subject classroom where parents and students will meet them on a drop-in basis, with no advance appointment.

Moreover, in order to maintain fewer number of parents and students coming to school, the meetings will be only for those students who have received a YES for the criteria: "Teacher Recommends a Meeting". This means that parents need only meet those subjects teacher(s) who have indicated that they wish to meet the parents and students. For all other subjects, a meeting is not necessary. Parents of children who have not received a YES, are requested not to come in to meet the teacher(s). 

If a parent has an urgent/important reason why they would like to meet any teacher, please email Ms Linda <sec.pa@islzamboia.org>  who will arrange for a teacher meeting at a convenient time.

If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact Linda or myself.

Best regards,
Craig Patterson
Secondary Principal

Yr 13's welcome Yr12's into the Diploma programme

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

COVID-19 Past the Peak?

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.

Dear Primary Parents,
  
Welcome back and a special warm welcome to new families who have joined the ISL community. I hope you all had a relaxing holiday and are now ready to start the new academic year.

COVID-19 Update

The hardest thing about managing this crisis is the unknowns. In March we closed schools with fewer than 30 cases in Zambia and for a long time, the rate of increase was very small. As recently as April the World Health Organization was telling us not to bother with face masks. Until July, our planning was predicated on opening our campus in August.

COVID training in-house

The ISL COVID Task Force has compiled detailed plans to allow us to reopen campus in a safe and orderly manner as soon as we are able. These plans include stringent measures to control the spread of viruses such as hand-washing and mask-wearing combined with measures to allow for improved social distancing. The photo on the left shows our school nurse, Edith Lemba, briefing mid-management on the procedures to be followed in managing suspected COVID cases.

Our plans include many organizational changes to reduce students' exposure to COVID: many classrooms will be moved to reduce student travel and classes will be split over two rooms if needed. Taking the upper end of the guidelines - 2m between children - from the MoGE means that classes will be limited to 15 students maximum in a regular size classroom. We are looking at how to create communicating entrances between classrooms to facilitate management here.

COVID working group

As we move toward the holiday, our focus will switch from supporting our students through distance learning to prepareing to reopen our campus safely.

Board ratifies fee discounts

Our board met last week; among the items considered was feedback from parents on the discounts announced last month. This ranged from those who thought that no discount should be given to those who thought that the discounts were insufficient. The board has to balance the need to provide relief to parents in the time of trial against its responsibility to safeguard the future of the school.

School calendar next year

At last weeks' meeting, our board decided that we will adhere to next year's calendar. On any given school day on the calendar for next year if our campus is open we will run in-person classes and otherwise we will run distance learning. Please click here to read the original announcement about the calendar with links and calendar IDs.

Study: Screen Time Has Little Impact on Kids’ Social Skills

It's always a challenge to read something that goes against what I have always believed to be "true”, and this is a good example. A new study suggests that, despite the large amount of time spent on smartphones and social media, young people today are just as socially skilled as those from the previous generation.

Program resumes after Easter break on 22nd April

It was heartwarming to watch the video compiled by ISL PTA with messages from students and parents for the teachers. Thank you so much for your efforts once again PTA members! We sincerely appreciate this gesture and hope everyone had a great Easter with their families.

After the Easter break, the online classes resume from April 22nd.

PTA thank you

Over the past few days, the PTA asked Association members to share their thoughts on all the work we have done to keep our school vibrant and alive at this extraordinary time.

Ways to express ourselves

As we enter the break period, the Arts department is hard at work at finding ways to express ourselves at this moment - there will be more to come in this regard. We start with Peter Holdway, our drama teacher, who shares a reading of a piece by Fra Giovanni Giocondo from the early 16th century.

Universities dealing with COVID-19

These are unusual and unsettling times. Given the enormous disruptions, there is a lot of uncertainty and concern for our students’ university applications and admissions. Yesterday I attended a webinar on the impact of Covid-19 on UK university admissions: it was reassuring to hear how admission offices have adapted to the current situation. In addition, a number of universities in North America are reaching out to schools across the world to give an update about their admission process. The most important message for our students is that this is an extraordinary situation that affects institutions and students all around the world.

Below are a few points that our students and parents might find useful:

Distance Learning in Middle School

IMYC Students Learning from Home 

While the campus at ISL is closed, school has remained open with teachers and students continuing to teach and learn using google classroom and Managebac. In Middle School, we have continued to follow our units of study and are currently on our final unit of the year. They students are studying Creativity in year 7, Tradition in year 8 and Renewal in year 9.

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.

Week one after Distance learning

Everyone is getting technologically sound with distance learning!

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!

Distance Learning Tools & Applications(Covid 19)

Due to the widespread outbreak of the COVID-19 world over, and heeding the important call to Stay Home, we are privileged to host most if not all our tools and applications in the cloud. This means yes we are disadvantaged to sit in the same space and engage our students in a physical classroom, but we are once again privileged to keep our Teacher and Student programs running remotely using our Distance Learning Tools and Applications embedded in our GSuite for Education platform.

Dealing with COVID 19

I read an interesting article shared by Michael Lannini from International Schools Services. The article is written by Doug Ota who is the Chairperson and founder of  Safe Passage Across Networks (SPAN)- a non-profit organization that aims " to offer a home to refresh, equip, and connect transition care providers around the globe who are committed to healthy student, family, and staff mobility within and between school."
Here are some suggestions form him to cope with school closures, isolation, and quarantine.

IB CAS and distance learning: how does this work?

As part of their IB Diploma programme, the students are required to complete three CORE components: Theory of Knowledge, the Extended Essay and CAS (Creativity, Activity, Service). With many school campuses closed and students now attending online classes, students have to rethink about how to implement CAS in their distance learning programme. Every Wednesday, from 8 to 9 am, I will touch base with the whole DP1 cohort.

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.

Notice of school closure

As you may be aware, the Minister of Health has instructed all schools to close on Friday 20th March 2020

Cancellation of non-teaching activities

As part of our response to the spread of the coronavirus causing COVID-19 we have cancelled until further notice all non-teaching activities at school.

Progress on Nangwenya Road



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.
