M1 Class (above) present to their parents on Wednesday evening
Value #3 – A holistic and diverse portfolio of learning experiences
On Tuesday, the D1 class was visited by the former Moshi Head of Campus, Keiron White. Mr. White spoke to the students about the various entrance tests available to support their university applications next year.
Value #5 – Innovation over perfection within a supportive community where students are motivated to embrace personal challenge and reflection
Wednesday was a great day of reflection and Student-led conferences.
The DP students met with their Mentor to discuss their progress so far this year and to set goals for the remainder of the year. One teacher commented to me that it was the best day – he was really impressed with the depth of thought he heard from his D2 students and really appreciated the chance to spend some one-on-one time with them.
M4 and M5 students invited their parents in to share their portfolios. Ms. Jessica commented that they were very thorough and really made good use of the time for reflection with their parents.
M1-M3 students and parents enjoyed our first-ever ‘Learning Showcase’. Every child got to shine by presenting their learning in one of the seven classes visited. Some parents also got to shine as well, either on the Ultimate Frisbee pitch, doing a math or science Kahoot, or by playing SIMBA. It was a lot of fun for all.
Value #6 – The ambition of students to demonstrate initiative and take on leadership roles
Five of our D1 students are traveling to Moshi today for their final dress rehearsal for TEDx. Arusha will have 3 speakers and 2 hosts to represent them. Speaking at a TEDx conference is an opportunity to share innovative ideas with your community and I commend these students for stepping up! More than 20 students and teachers from Arusha will travel on Saturday to attend the conference.
Value #10 – The happiness and well-being of our community
Please complete the MYP or DP Quarter 3 Parent surveys that were sent out on Thursday. We look forward to your feedback in order to continue to improve our programs. PYP parent surveys will be sent out after PYP Student-led conferences.
Value #2 – A feeling of belonging, acceptance, and tolerance
Welcome home! One of our recent graduates, Mehreen from the class of 2021 came home from America for Spring Break and stopped by for a visit. She took the opportunity to come home now as she may not come back over the summer since she has a fantastic 10 week internship in Chicago this summer. Lovely to see her and hear how she is enjoying her time at Swathmore College in Pennsylvania.
