Service as Action is simply termed as “learning by doing”. It is the core of the MYP that provides a unique experience for MYP students to become actors in the real world by applying concepts learnt in the classroom to real-life situations. As such, MYP 2 students are Taking Action from their favoruite Units.
On Monday, Chidubem Akunyili, Lois Entsua- Mensah, Emmanuel Mefful, Ewen Sevor and John Opeku (MYP 2) held a forum about Conflict Resolution in the Orchestra Room. This was a Service as Action experience drawn from their Integrated Humanities unit titled, “Rainbow World” where they learnt about the principles and types of resolution.
The audience wasabout 30 including Mr. David, Ms. Setor, Madam Janet (Integrated Humanities Teacher) and students across grades.
The team led the audience by narrating scenarios for open discussions by inviting ideas and thoughts on possible resolutions. The types of resolutions were explored and a quiz on how famous world wars were adjudicated. Overall, it was an exciting experience for all who attended.
Madam Janet congratulated the team and encouraged them to continue to learn outside the classroom and apply all that they study to their lives to create a friendly and harmonious environment for all.
