18th September, 2017.
On behalf of the entire staff of IESA, I would like to welcome you to a new academic year 2017/2018. It gives me great pleasure to officially inform you that our school officially marks its 10 years of creation and thank you for the confidence you have reposed in us over the years. Like every year, we do not only have several new pupils and parents but also new and qualified staff members who will be presented to you when a general meeting is hosted in the upcoming weeks. A new section has been added for KG2 and Grade 6 expansion is still in the pipe line.Academically, we had a 90% pass rate in the recently held IGCSE exams for High School pupils. Over the summer, our High School pupils also successfully participated in a Global Scholars Programme at the African Leadership Academy in Johannesburg, South Africa that focused on Entrepreneurship Leadership and the Medical and Health Care Summit at John Hopkins University, Baltimore, USA. IESA is now the only school in Côte d’Ivoire to run the International Preschool Curriculum (IPC) at the Kindergarten Level. An information session will be held on this programme on 30th September, 2017. Details about this meeting will be communicated to you in due time. Furthermore, our school is now officially a center for the Science Olympiad Foundation and several pupils across the different grades will participate in this international competition in Math, Science, English and General Knowledge. The Education City online learning portal has also been renewed and access codes should be sent to you for each child in due time.
Thanks once again for supporting our transition to the use of original Cambridge Programme text books and also for your indulgence. May God help us all to have an enriching academic year ahead.
Petrina L. DIOULO (Mrs.)
