While the 2019-2020 school year may quickly be coming to a close, there is still much to be accomplished and celebrated in the Secondary School. Please find below a list of important dates.
Graduation Time is Here!
We honor the great accomplishments of our Grade 12 students TODAY! The celebration begins with the release of the Sports Awards Ceremony video in today's Leopard's Tale. This will be followed by tomorrow's 12:00 pm (Lusaka) release of the Senior Awards Ceremony videos followed immediately by the live, virtual Last Supper where students and their teachers can share congrats and accolades. The celebration of our Seniors culminates on Saturday at 15:00 (Lusaka) with the release of the Class of 2020 Graduation Ceremony. Following it's launch, the school will host a virtual "house party" for students, parents, and faculty.
Grade 11 Eyes on the Future
Throughout this past week, the Grade 11 students have been engaged in mock exams from home. Whilst we would much prefer to conduct mock exams on campus, we feel it is still critical for our Grade 11 students to get exam practice as well as an accurate assessment of their progress prior to end-of-year break. Next week, the same students will be engaged in their Group 1 oral exams as well as completing their Theory of Knowledge group presentations. This is a big two weeks for our Grade 11 students whom we are sure are looking forward to slowing down and catching some rest over break while still completing their Extended Essays prior to the onset of the new school year.
MYP Marches On
All other students, grades 6-10, will continue with their final modules of distance learning next week. Many students have been putting in extra hours to complete final summative assessments before the closing of semester grading on Friday 5 June. The following week, we will host normal Days A and B synchronous sessions on 8 and 9 June for students and teachers to say goodbye and wish each other well before a well deserved break. The finale of the year occurs on Wednesday 10 June with the release of the Grade 6-10 Awards Ceremony video.
Next week the Secondary School will host three helpful online parent presentations:
Please don't forget to review the COVID-19 school resource return procedures to ensure that you can receive your child's grades and transcripts in a timely fashion.
The Leopard's Tale is our main medium to keep our families informed on such things as the day to day happenings on campus, after school activities, summaries of any arts and sports events, helpful resources, and important dates and reminders.
