Chinese!

GHA is pleased to announce a partnership with the Confucius Institute which has allowed us to offer Chinese as a Middle School elective. It has been very popular and we warmly welcome our two new Chinese Teachers, Li and Yan.

After School Programs

After School Programs will be starting in the next two weeks. We are putting together an amazing lineup! After school programs will run for ten weeks and will cost 30,000 RWF for the term. Clubs and sports teams will remain free of charge. Principals will send out information directly to parents regarding the courses offered.

Student Leadership News

Congratulations to those students who were chosen to be prefects for the 2017-18 school year! They attended an orientation and leadership workshop last Saturday!

DELF Junior Exam

The deadline to sign up for the DELF Junior exam is September 22nd. Students in Grades 9-12 are eligible to take this exam. The exam is offered only once a year and is needed for university admissions to a French speaking university. The certification is a life-long certification and can also be used when applying for jobs. Please contact the French Coordinator, Ms. Catherine, for more information at lebeckaragirwac@greenhillscademy.rw.

New Policies

The GHA Team worked hard over the summer to develop two new school policies to promote child welfare. We now have a Child Protection Policy and a Positive Behavioral Policy. We will now be focusing on merits and consequences, rather than demerits.
