Grade 6A Individuals & Societies Students Special Guest Visit from Zambia's IOM Chief of Mission, Ms. Annie Mee
Ms. Conte's Grade 6 MYP Individuals and Societies students have been studying issues of migration for the past several weeks. They have explored push and pull factors related to migration and have researched specific groups from different parts of the world.
Today they had a special guest visit from The Chief of Mission of the International Organization for Migration, Ms. Annie Mee (also an AISL parent). Ms. Mee asked the students about their learning thus far and helped them to deepen their understanding of issues connected with regular and irregular immigration. She also shared a case study of the recent influx of approximately 20,000 refugees from the DRC, many of whom are being relocated to a new camp on the Zambian side of the border. Ms. Mee helped students to appreciate the vulnerability of irregular migrants who often do not have any official travel documents. Students asked many insightful questions drawing on their study of these issues. As always, we are deeply grateful to the parents in our community who share their rich expertise with our students and help them to explore real-life situations connected with their studies. Thank you, Ms. Mee!
If you as a parent would be willing to share your area of expertise with our students, please contact Terry Maguire, Secondary Teacher-Librarian: email@example.com.
