ISAZ Teachers Teaching Teachers Conference! On Saturday, AISL will once again be hosting the annual ISAZ Teachers Teaching Teachers Conference. Open to all ISAZ schools, this conference is the premier professional development experience of the year for independent schools in Zambia. We are expecting 450 teachers and heads of school to join us! I am pleased to report that, as always, AISL teachers will be running many of the workshops on offer. Hosting this conference is just another way that AISL demonstrates leadership in Zambia and gives back to the community. Many thanks to the large planning team of more than 30 educators from several ISAZ schools and to Christine Kelly for coordinating their work.
High School Coffee House! We will be hosting another High School Coffee House on Friday, 15 February at 19:00 in the Library and Discovery Center. These events provide great opportunities for students to share poetry, drama, music, or other talents in a relaxed and supportive environment. Many thanks to Terry Maguire and Chel Illingworth for coordinating these events. Parents and high school students are welcome. Please note that some content may not be suitable for younger children.
ISSEA Cultural Conventions! Many people think of ISSEA as only an international sports league but it was also created to support the arts. Our artists, musicians, and actors are working hard to prepare themselves for the two upcoming ISSEA cultural conventions next week: Visual Arts & Drama in Maputo and Band & Choir in Harare.
Kindness Week! Next week is Kindness Week in the Primary School. There will be numerous activities and events that highlight the importance of being kind and respectful to oneself and to others. Although I see numerous acts of kindness every week throughout the year here at AISL, it is always a good idea to intentionally pause and reflect on one’s behavior. Many thanks to Stephanie Sawchuk for helping us to shine a spotlight on kindness this week.
