The year is going by very fast. We are already in October. Students and teachers are all busy ensuring learning and teaching is going on successfully.
Reports: It is already the time of the year for report writing. Next week, on 25th October, we will have our 3-way conferences. As is the practice in the Secondary, for every parent’s conference, teachers will send a link for you to sign up for the meetings. We will send the link to all parents as soon as we are ready. The reports you will receive this semester are Progress reports for the M1-DP1, and they will contain details on how your child is doing in their subjects about the ATL skills and IB Learner Profile. However, the DP2 students will receive a grade for these reports to see where they are in their subjects and what they should do to improve. Please encourage your children to seek feedback from their teachers on how to do better in their various subjects. The Parents’ conference event will also enable you to talk to the teachers, and they will explain the grades to you. Please make sure you attend this meeting.
Assessment workshops: Last week, there was a workshop for our M4-DP2 parents, but unfortunately, there was some confusion, and the attendance was quite poor. I am sending you the link to the video here. Should you have any queries, you can make an appointment to see either me or the coordinators on the day of the Parents’ conference.
ATL workshops for M1-3 parents: This week, on Thursday, 19th October, from 9:00-10:30 am we will have a workshop led by our MYP Coordinator, Ms. Emma. This will be an interactive workshop, and we hope to see as many parents as possible.
M5 e-assessments: Some parents might be aware of the introduction of the e-assessments for the MYP5 from last year. This year, we are already getting the students ready for these assessments. The e-assessments aim to enable our students to develop rigour in their studies and be ready for the Diploma Programme. We hope to see improvements in the DP scores after implementing these IB MYP assessments.
We have been going into classes to observe the teachers in their classes, and we have witnessed some excellent practices. Students are engaged in their subjects, and many keep neat notebooks. We hope to see that all our students take care of their notebooks and show their engagement in their classes and their schoolwork.
I am always ready to listen to your voice and ensure our students are supported in school. As I said in my announcements last week,” Every child deserves a chance to shine-our core purpose”. Anonymous.
