Our Vision for the Future of TAE
We have several online sessions for the parents of each section, coming up next week. We are so excited to explain our vision and our plans for next school year. We have such high hopes for the future of TAE and we would like to take you with us on the journey.
Future Innovative Minds: Extra curricular courses for Students
This organisation develops critical thinking and innovative skills of our students with short courses, from Business Management to Creative Writing, led by international experts from Harvard, Yale and Stanford universities, and entrepreneurs from a variety of fields. The courses are suitable for students aged 13 to 17. The Future Innovative Minds team will deliver an introduction to all interested parents and students on Tuesday February 15th at 5pm via Zoom.
The teachers of Preschool, Primary and Middle School received their Cambridge curriculum training on Friday 28th January. We are raising the level of English across the school and we are very excited to be embarking up this process of change.
Thank you for completing our Parents’ Questionnaire. Many asked about the level of French that is spoken across the school. Coincidentally four teachers from Preschool to High School will soon be attending training regarding up to date teaching and learning practices in French, organised by The French Institute in Latin America (IFAL). It is so important that we remain at the forefront of the latest research.
This week, I met representatives from the Reforma newspaper, who asked me all about TAE and how we are taking the school forward, given the challenges of the pandemic. They met several students and they were impressed with their confidence, manners, linguistic ability and intelligence. The Reforma team compiled a video of the school and we shall present it to you as soon as it is fully edited and completed.
Good luck to all our students for their preparation ready for TAE Model United Nations, which begins online next week. We have 41 TAE students taking part, led by organiser Luis Arturo Ramírez.
For the past 18 years, the Tomas Alva Edison School has organised TAEMUN, a simulation of the workings of the United Nations, which will take place from 10-12 February and our school will become a simulation of a United Nations office. This year due to the pandemic, TAEMUN will be held virtually; in primary we will have four committees: UNHCR, ILO SOCHUM and UNEP. In secondary three committees: OAS, UNWOMEN and HRW and in high school with three committees: ICJ, SC and AG.
We invite you to know the programme and the activities related to this event on the TAEMUN website.
They will debate with 22 other schools in the region. More news next week.
Just a reminder that there is no school on Monday. Have an exciting long weekend.
