Summer School for JLSS Children Summer School 2009

A two-week summer program was held from 31 September until 11 October 2009 for underperforming children from Grades One to Three. This program only included children from the boarding school. A part-time teacher, Miss Hanan Haddad, was given the task of trying to help those children academically. House-parents from the boarding department organized special activities for them to make the summer school interesting. They were taught in small groups to make it easier for them to learn. While a few of them were studying with Miss Haddad, the others were doing activities with house-parents. A teachers' meeting was held on the first day for the purpose of iSummer School Activitiesnforming Miss Haddad about the areas of weakness for each individual child. Teachers who taught the children last year informed her exactly which areas she needed to address. Schneller School sponsored this program totally at no cost to parents as they are unable to afford any fees. Although the duration of the summer school was short, it provided the children with a positive stimulus, two weeks before the start of the academic year. Their individual needs were addressed in a small way, propping them for a better start. Above all, their learning experience in a very small group may help them adjust better to a full class situation. The outcome of this program will be assessed during the first few months of the next academic year.
