Access students visit a rural school in Sfax and offer more than a thousand books!

On May 4th, Access students visited the Mjedhba rural school in Jebeniana  in the suburbs of Sfax.  Access students  collected more than a thousand books (Arabic, French and English titles)  and donated them to the school’s Reading Club,  laying the foundation stone for the school’s  library.

In their visit, Access students were accompanied with younger school children to whom they explained the benefits of reading and of helping others find reading opportunities.

Being able to make a difference was indeed the main objective of Access students. They were, in effect, enormously thrilled to be able to leave a positive imprint.

This visit was covered by Radio Sfax and Diwan FM and was attended by the Regional Delegate of Education in Sfax 2.

Access Students in the Youth Talk Program 2017

Intermediate Access students have been part of the Youth Talk Program, a virtual cultural exchange program, since February. During this program, IVCs have taken place at least once a month in which students discussed current local, national and international events.

On March 17th, they had the first IVC “Too many stories in one world”. Access students from Schooling Plus and those from Davisville met for the first time. They discussed some problems in their respective countries and shared some personal events. Their first virtual meeting ended with a song written and performed by students from the Schooling Access group.

“Building Multiple Perspectives” was the theme of their second IVC. With the help of their global timeline, students talked about events that helped shape their perspectives toward life. A discussion was raised about the local, national and international global timeline events and how they affected both pa

rtners’ lives.

Community Service: Raising awareness about Autism

On February 3rd, Access students went on a field trip to ERRAHMA Association for Autistic Children. During the visit, the staff of the association set an informative meeting for the Access students and staff where they explained everything related to Autism and offered various brochures to students to help them understand the different types and repercussions of this medical condition. They also showed them around and gave them the opportunity to meet and interact with some Autistic Children.
Students were quite keen on finding out more about this disability and understanding the characteristics related to this neurobehavioral disorder.

At the end of the visit, Access students offered the association educational materials to use with the kids and left with a determination to raise awareness about Autism.
As a follow-up activity, students were asked to think about ways to demystify this disease among their friends and families for a better acceptance and integration of these kids in society.
