August 2022 Newsletter

Dear parents,
It has been seven whole weeks without the bustling presence of our dear students, they have been sorely missed.
We trust you have had a memorable bonding, restful and refreshing time with them.

Below are highlights of activities in August and a peep into the new School Year.

 

Holiday School
Tagged colors of talents, the Howbury 2022 Holiday School held from July 25th to August 19th. The program was fully packed with fun, adventurous and learning engagements for the students. Apart from Math, English and Science lessons, students had a Book Reading session, a mini Olympic event, Arts and Crafts sessions, Talents Show, Swimming and lots more. The climax of the program was a showcase on the final day where parents experienced first hand an exhibition of students' activities and creations for the four week period.
Take a look.

 

 

Senior Internship Program (SIP)
Howbury Senior Internship Program which is in its fourth year is tailored to create the perfect environment for young persons to explore various challenges around them, create and implement tech driven solutions. This year's program focussed on SDG 2: Zero Hunger- End Hunger, Achieve Food Security, Improve Nutrition and Promote Sustainable Agriculture.

We had 24 interns; the highest number since the program inception, work effortlessly to create workable solutions to the long existent problem of hunger within the African Continent. 

The interns were guided to pick a line of action in response to the challenge as Inventors, 

Innovators or Campaigners.
Due to the program duration, the interns were able to explore 3, out of the eight targets of SDG2.
Overall, the interns left the program more informed and as solution bearers.
