30th Anniversary Party! I cannot wait for the party on Saturday night. Thank you for the outpouring of support for this event. We now only have a few tickets left. They are on sale at the main office for K300. All proceeds from this event will be used to support our scholarship program. Many thanks to the planning committee for all their hard work.
WorldFest! was amazing! Thank you to everyone who made WorldFest! such a great success. It was a spectacular event. I have received a lot of very positive feedback about all the different parts of the day. Of course, a day like that has A LOT of moving parts and many, many people made important contributions. First off, many thanks to the WorldFest! Planning Committee: Chye de Ryckel, Kathleen Bowin, Mary Krafft, Chulu Chansa, Darlene Huson, Elna van Rensburg, Jenni Redman, Dee Hausman, Tom Potter, Ty Smeins, Chel Illingworth, Ingrid Turner, Lauren Wassink, and Pete Lawton. Thank you also to all the parents who contributed to the amazing International Food Festival and to Mary Krafft and Nikki Zeravica from the PTA for coordinating it. It was beautiful to see so many colorful tables and to have the chance to sample foods from around the globe. Thank you to all the teachers, admin, and support staff who contributed in so many different ways to the event. Finally, many thanks to the U.S. Ambassador, Mr. Eric Schultz, for addressing the entire school at our WorldFest! assembly. All in all, it was a great day. If you missed the flag parade, I think you will enjoy this great video made by Maddy in Grade 10
Crowdfunding for the Scholarship Program! Our scholarship program is one of the greatest ways that we give back to our wonderful host country, Zambia. We thought that alumni, family, and friends might wish to help us support this great program so we have started a crowd-funding campaign. Please spread the word.

IB exams – shhhhhh! The IB Diploma Exams have started. Please wish the Class of 2017 luck as they face a series of difficult exams across the next two weeks. Many of the exams take place in the Protea Room so I humbly request your assistance in being quiet in that area if the IB exam signs are posted. There will always be some background noise in any exam environment but lease help us to minimize distractions. Thanks in advance!
