A new year
2011 has now come to an end and we at ES are really happy with the progress we have done during the last year. All the students have worked hard and we have seen some great results in the subjects we teach in. We have now mixed up the students in seven of our eight classes. We did that to stimulate more friendship in the school and also to create classes where the students have equal skills. Our newest class (3A) has not mixed up with the other classes yet because they have not been with us for more than five months and they need more time to get familiar with ES and how we work.
Sunday is now review day where most students from all classes meet up in the schoolyard to summarize the week and review what they learned the past week by playing games and doing fun activities. This is done in mixed groups.
In our computer department we are focusing a lot on online learning, online research and less on Excel, Powerpoint and Word. This is an active decision because most of the students have reached a good level using these programs but many of them need more training in gathering information from Internet and present it in a good way.
Toan (1D), Thinh (1D) and Hau (1D) have all won great awards this last month. Toan got an award for one of the best young leaders in the province. Thinh for her speaking and writing English skills and Hau for his computer skills. We are of course very proud of our ambitious and hard working students and we believe that this will stimulate their fellow students even more.
To conclude, we are following our plan and we are reaching our goals. We have a good and strong team, great students and the future looks bright for English School of Mui Ne.
