This old show business expression captures the spirit of AISL during these unprecedented times. Many thanks to the students, staff, and parents for their hard work in supporting our high-quality distance learning program. These collective efforts will ensure that our students do not fall behind during our campus closure.
On that note, I highly recommend that you plan to visit the online opening of the IB Diploma Programme Visual Arts Exhibition, appropriately entitled The Show Must Go On. This exhibition showcases two years’ worth of work by each of our Grade 12 Visual Arts students. Although we normally host the exhibition in the Palm Pavilion, tonight’s opening will take place online from 17:00-18:00 (Central Africa Time). Many thanks to Laurey Nevers, Terry Maguire, and Tony Potts for getting creative in finding a way to support our brilliant scholar-artists. You can learn more here. To visit the show, click on this link and follow the instructions. The password is the same as for the Parent Portal and Virtual Library. You will not want to miss this great opportunity to see our senior students’ brilliant artwork. If you miss the opening tonight, you can still visit the online exhibition for the next couple of weeks.
Regular faculty collaboration is another way that the show goes on behind the scenes at AISL. Despite being busy guiding students through our distance learning program, our teachers also spend 3-5 hours each week in large and small group meetings with their colleagues. These meetings are dedicated to collaborative planning, curriculum review, instructional coaching, student support, grade moderation, special projects, upskilling, and more. Whether the campus is closed or open, our highly trained teachers are continuously working together to hone our programs.
Finally, I am happy to report that our construction project is also carrying on – and is making great progress. We have now finished our Kindergarten through Grade 3 classrooms along with our Primary tech lab and design space. These bright, purpose-built, air-conditioned classrooms with spacious verandas and communal spaces will offer the finest Primary School teaching and learning environment in Zambia. I have attached some pictures to get you excited! I can’t wait until you can see them in person.
On with the show!
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.
