July School (Starting in July 2015)
This will run for a total of four weeks every year in July, dates will be advertised in the Akwi Montessori School Calendar of Activities for the academic year. Cameroon’s Ministry of Basic Education’s national academic programme officially expects schools to terminate in June every year. This means that pupils are out of the learning environment for three months before resuming school in September. At AMS July School has been introduced for the following reasons:
- To keep the mind active (use it or lose it) in a vibrant and well prepared learning environment.
- To extend the time available for the pupils to explore the Montessori materials.
- To fulfill an additional sequence of work (expected by local Education Authority)
At AMS July school is compulsory. It will be run at no additional cost to parents.
To attend July school, the pupils must register for the upcoming academic year.
