The Access intensive session

The Access intensive session  took place in the form of an American-style, multi-sensory, interactive and fun summer

Camp conducted by American university students. The five, half-day intensive assisted in the development of the students’ utilization and confidence in English, encouraged positive character traits and enhanced team building.

The daily topics built on character traits and included: honesty, perseverance, compassion, forgiveness, and responsibility. Each day the character trait was unpacked through a story and/or a modern day role model who embodied the particular character trait.

Each day began in a large group setting and included an ice breaker, songs and a video or skit.

Afterwards, the students were dismissed by teams to begin small group rotation which included; Learn It, Use It and Create It. Upon the completion of small groups, the students returned to the large group for a final review, a team challenge, songs and closing remarks.

Independence Day

 

On July 4th, Access students learnt about the history of America’s independence day and the different celebrations of that day and  decided  to celebrate on their own way.  The idea was to prepare a cake that contains both the American and Tunisian flags. Students were super excited about it, for it was an opportunity to celebrate the American Tunisian friendship as well. Indeed, the cake was tasty and our American guests seemed very happy about the whole idea.

Mother’s Day

On May 21st, Access students in the Magazine Club celebrated Mother’s Day in their own way. They seemed thrilled to have the opportunity to concretize their emotions and pour their feelings into handcrafted cards. The atmosphere was indeed filled with feelings of love, gratitude and utmost joy. Students were inspired by some videos and they eventually came up with amazing and heartwarming notes that they chose to dedicate to their moms on that special day.

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.
