Amilieh High School Achieving the International School Award

Connecting classrooms is a British council managed programme working in over fifty countries that offers school partnerships, professional development courses, accreditation and the chance to share best practice with international counterparts.

What’s on offer?

There are three stands of the programme directly aimed at schools and teachers.

Partnerships: get the support you need to build a sustainable relationship with a link school.

Professional development: equip yourself to tackle global themes in the classroom and to develop the relevant skills and outlooks in young people.

International schools award: submit evidence of your school’s commitment to international work and again recognition from your school.

Amilieh high school for boys got engaged in this connecting classrooms programme two years ago. An international coordinator Najwa Allaik was assigned to carry all the collaborative work between Amilieh High School and Altwood College and the British Council.

The collaborative work started with three projects formed and supervised by the international coordinator. Gladly the projects done by students got the British Council confirmation. That’s where we had the chance to apply for the ISA (International School Award).

Applying for this award was not that easy. Amilieh School’s international coordinator had to form seven international projects that carry an international dimension and that cover all circular subjects and themes. Well happy to say, Amilieh high school was one of three schools between 17 schools from Lebanon to get full approval on the 7 projects.

 The seven projects had an international dimension to teaching and learning. The framework helped the students and teachers to develop and introduce our school’s international dimension. Our partnership with Altwood College flourished through the integrated everyday classroom activities that tackled global themes.

Through a one full year of effort and hard work, Amilieh High Scool was able to achieve ISA accreditation. The International Coordinator submitted a portfolio that showed evidence of their international activities and the impact they have had, alongside examples of their commitment to global learning at an institutional level.

The portfolio was presented to the British Council international jury along with a DVD that summarizes all the activities to examine and review.

The 2011-2012 portfolios had been reviewed by the ISA jury whose members were from the ISA Accreditation committee UK, British Council in Lebanon and the Center for Educational Research and Development –Lebanon.

Celebrating this occasion, an official ceremony was held on Friday 11th, January 2013, from 9:30 till 11:30, at the ministry of Education and Higher Education 12th floor – Auditorium. It was under the patronage of the minister of Education and Higher Education and her Majesty’s Ambassador to Lebanon.

At the same time, Amilieh High School for Boys received the ISA Official Certificate, ISA Trophy and ISA Flag.

This accreditation was from 2012-2015
