Tunisian and American elections

Access students at Schooling Plus celebrated the Tunisian parliamentary elections on October 26th by visiting poll stations and conducting interviews with voters about their favourite parties and candidates. They also, on the occasion of the US mid-term elections, took part in mock elections organized at Schooling Plus on November 9th. Students were eager to take part in both elections since it was an opportunity for them to compare both systems and discuss the evolution of the democratic process in their country.

Halloween

ACCESS students at SCHOOLING PLUS celebrated Halloween – a celebration of the unknown , the unfamiliar and fear by dressing up as all things scary and spooky as a way to face their fears. They carved Jack O’ Lantern and trick and treat all the other access students. Through this celebration they wanted to face their fears of differences , unfamiliarity, biased judgements, discriminatory thoughts and unjust stereotyping.
This is a message for peace to the whole world that they wanted to send.
The ACCESS music club wanted to celebrate HALLOWEEN on their own way by singing « Thriller » by Michael Jackson.

True Colors

Access students with teacher Najla Fki had a blast discovering things about themselves while taking the True Colors personality test. After answering a couple of questions, the students got their true color which was Blue, Gold, Green or Orange. Each color reflects certain qualities and characteristics that are unique to their holder. In groups, the students enjoyed drawing posters explaining their true color of which they were so proud.
