A Letter to Grade 6 Parents

Dear parents,

It is with great pleasure that I Introduce myself to you. I am Mary Victor, I teach your children computer. Alongside teaching, I am also doing my Master in International and Comparative Education. I am currently doing my research about how technology can be used to enhance student’s reading, writing skills and creative endeavors in storytelling.

Our grade 6 curriculum is entitled Stories on the Web

Term: Software: Objective

Term I: Blogs: to read

we shall be learning about blogs and the objective of the curriculum is to encourage students to read. Each student will create a blog and borrow a book from the library. Then each week, the student is required to read one chapter and blog about it.

I shall be sending you more details along the way. I only require your support in treating computer not as a secondary subject but a subject where it could be very beneficial to your children.  All our work will be online so I encourage you to follow our blog, be updated with your children’s progress and make sure that they do the work required. I hope that this year would be fruitful and beneficial not only in research terms, but that your children will develop along with technical skills, a love for reading and writing, a skill which I personally developed in their age.

A final note: I am also a graduate of BBC and am very excited to come back here and work with your children!

Please feel free to leave your comments and questions on my blog(website). Especially on this specific post!

You are invited to follow our blog, to receive updates by e-mail on what we are doing…(You will find the follow button on the right side of the blog)

Sincerely,

Miss Mary Victor.

Community Service Activities– Visit II

At the end of the year the students went again to el Ghad el Moshreq school and organized a huge funday for them (amazingly student  led!). They split the children into 6 classes and had 6 sessions running in music room, art room, games in the gym and football court  and more… When put in leadership positions, our students amaze us all!

Community Service Activities– Visit I

In this series of pictures, I took my grade 11 students to visit Ghad el Moshreq school for children with special needs. It is located right next to our school. There their humanness shined beneath adolescence cool. They came back, blogged about their experience, and sought to return once more..
