Student voice at Northbridge - helping us to stay organised and aware!

Student voice at Northbridge - helping us to stay organised and aware! As members of the Northbridge International School Cambodia community, it is important that when we ask our students or teenage children for their opinion, and that we listen and act where appropriate.

As members of the Northbridge International School Cambodia community, it is important that when we ask our students or teenage children for their opinion, and that we listen and act where appropriate.

Student ‘voice’ is critical. Done well, it enables students to take charge of their education. When we go from simply listening to honoring and valuing, voice enables students and develops their comfortability to be a leader. 

Ainee Shehzed Salim, from Karachi Grammar School, noted in an interesting article that:

The overall desired result of student voice is that our students positively develop their ATL skills and IB Learner Profile attributes as active, respectful, questioning and productive citizens.

Read Ainee Shehzed Salim’s the full article The importance of giving students a voice.

Recently all Grades 6 to 10 students had the opportunity to feedback into how we are organising our virtual learning days. Many students asked for a clear picture of their summative assessment commitments. As a result teachers have worked to compile an MYP Summative Assessment Map.

This is now helping students balance their workload for the remainder of this academic year. As a positive long term development, an Assessment Map will now be a permanent resource created for students.

Parents, please visit the Map with your son/daughter. This is one excellent way that parents and teens can work together on school work. Organisation tips from Mum or Dad are always helpful.
