It may have been the first time in human history that so many students looked forward to returning to school in August! Kids and staff worldwide welcomed the news that school was officially “ON” with relief, glad to have a small sense of normalcy returned to their lives.
We find ourselves at a crossroads, where some communities are dying and others are being built both offline and online. We live in an interesting age, and as international schools, it is time to monopolise on the changes we’re seeing to help students achieve their full potential.
As explained by a successful student-athlete at Haut-Lac International Bilingual School
As a busy athlete, time is precious and keeping up with schoolwork can feel like a struggle. However, if you can join a school accredited by the World Academy of Sport (WAoS), typically called an AFEC, and follow an extended International Baccalaureate (IB) diploma or career-related course that is flexible enough to fit around the exigencies of sporting life, you can get the best of both worlds – giving up on neither your sport, nor your education.
