It’s time to start our weekly updates on Personal and Social Education (PSE) lessons again!
PSE lessons are part of the Secondary school curriculum and are explained in the next section. Our PSE lessons start during Quarter 2 each year; we will include updates each week about what is coming up for each grade level. If a grade level is not mentioned in the post, then that means that grade level has no upcoming PSE lessons. You can find the quarterly schedule of your child’s PSE lessons in the PSE Handbook here.
Our Personal and Social Education (PSE) curriculum is taught in Advisory lessons and sometimes during classroom learning. For example, lessons on family and relationships might happen during a Language and Literature discussion. Lessons that relate directly to biology would be taught in that class. Our weekly updates include hyperlinked learning materials when possible.
For the weeks of October 28 and November 4, the following PSE learning is planned:
Parents can reinforce learning at home by sharing what they know about these subjects. They can share their family’s, culture’s, and religion’s perspective on these aspects of Personal and Social Education.
If you would like your child to opt out of any of these lessons, just send an e-mail to your child’s Advisor and make sure your child knows. If you have any questions about any of the PSE lessons, you can contact your child’s Advisor.
The background of the PSE program:
As an IB school, Personal and Social Education (PSE) is integral to the development of students’ well-being. Personal and Social Education “is concerned with the individual’s well-being through the promotion and development of concepts, knowledge, attitudes, and skills that contribute to this well-being. Well-being is intrinsically linked to all aspects of a student’s experience at school and beyond. It encompasses physical, emotional, cognitive, spiritual and social health and development, and contributes to an understanding of self, to developing and maintaining relationships with others, and to participate in an active, healthy lifestyle,” according to the IB (p. 1).
Our Personal and Social Education curriculum integrates the IB’s beliefs about PSE together with the Guidelines for Comprehensive Sexuality Education 3rd Edition from the Sexuality-Information and Education Council of the United States in order to provide a well-balanced program for our students. Our written curriculum is outlined according to grade levels. Key concepts and standards for the PSE program are integrated through Advisory and subject level classes depending on the existing course content.
The PSE program was launched during the 2018-2019 school year because of feedback from parents and teachers. You can find the Personal and Social Health Handbook here.

Men’s health is in crisis. Men are dying on average six years earlier than women, and for largely preventable reasons (ex. prostate cancer, testicular cancer, suicide, etc.). This is an invitation for all men in the AISL community to join the Lusaka League of Extraordinary Moustaches during the month of November. Movember is an annual event involving the growing of moustaches during the month of November to raise awareness of men's health issues. The goal of Movember is to "change the face of men's health." Last year a group of teachers raised $720 USD for the Movember Foundation. This year we seek more community involvement from AISL fathers. If you are interested in joining our group, please contact Rob Martin at firstname.lastname@example.org by October 30th for more information and to be added to our team page and WhatsApp group. This video - What is Movember? - is a nice summary of Movember.
Friday, 11 October was a very exciting day across the whole campus with a range of cultural activities happening in both the Primary and Secondary schools and concluding with an amazing whole school assembly. Across the Primary school, the students engaged in a range of cultural activities that included learning the Akalela Independence Day Dance, playing the Nsolo game, making shields inspired by the Ngoni tribe, participating in Zambian children's daily duties, creating beaded necklaces, maps, quilts and flags, to name a few. From dancing to storytelling to tasting some local Zambian foods, the students were engaged throughout the day as they learned about our wonderful host country of Zambia. Thank you to the Primary Teaching Assistants and our Specialist Teachers for coordinating the activities and collaborating together to make the day memorable for our students.
