It is so hard to summarize all the fun and learning that took place during our August Joint Learning Session. We studied Ancient Egypt, did research reports, played basketball, did art projects, and SO much more.
5/6 Grade Class– A few of their highlights were studying the human body and did research reports on an organ and performed a play about building the pyramids.
The 3/4 class worked hard on research projects on animals and fish and dioramas depicting Egyptian life and culture.
The 1/2 Grade class worked on superhero character traits, library skills, and did lots of hands on learning about Egypt.
The Kindergarten class met in the afternoons and focused on letters, counting, and learning about Egypt.
The 4-year old preschool class started the year with a unit on dinosaurs.
The 3-year old preschool class is a French Immersion class. They are learning body parts, weather, and emotions. They even play games in French.
SWIMMING – As part of the December Joint Learning Session, our students participated in 10-days of swimming lessons at various commercial pools in Yaounde. It is a highlight for our students and they make great progress.
SINGING – Students also worked hard to learn the words to songs for our Christmas Program. Many students had speaking and solo parts as they honed their performance skills. It was an evening of recognizing the colors of Christmas that remind us of Jesus’ birth.
The 2017-18 school year began with almost 3 weeks of a Joint Learning Session. Home school students and The Greenhouse students learned together about Ancient Rome, writing research papers, science and reviewed their math. They learned to play basketball better and how to tie knots and how to use them! It was a full three weeks of learning and fun!
The new school year will start with almost three weeks of the Joint Learning Session, August 7-24. Friday, August 25 is a Teacher Transition Day – no school for the students! The Greenhouse will officially start on Monday, August 28.
Students in kindergarten through grade 6 participated in swimming lessons during the December Joint Learning Session (December 7-18, 2015). Parents and volunteers drove kids from school to two local pools as well as were the swim instructors and helpers. Kids (and the adults!) loved getting to swim and play in the pools every afternoon during dry season. Great progress was made by all!

Excitement was high both outside and inside of school on the first day of the new school year. Students and parents were gathering outside waiting for the bell to ring. Teachers and staff were inside with last-minute preparations and peeking out the window to catch glimpses of their students.
Home school students and The Greenhouse students will have three weeks of classroom learning: reviewing math skills, writing research reports (grades 3-6), science projects and learning about Ancient Egypt. We’re off to a good start with lots of learning and growing to come in the next three weeks!
