Dison International School marks 10th anniversary

Dison International School (DIS) has marked its 10th anniversary with a pledge to introduce Cambridge Advanced level Education (A level) to enable its students who have successfully completed their International General Certificate of Secondary Education exams to further their education in the school instead of pursuing their A levels at other schools.

At the school’s inaugural speech and prize giving day in Accra on June 24, the Executive Director of the School, Alexander Noma-Addison, explained that plans were far advanced to introduce the A level in the 2024/2025 academic year beginning September 2024.

“That will be another important milestone to our academic profile here and we are proud of and thankful for the opportunity to offer it,” the Executive Director of the DIS said.

Curriculum

The school, which runs the Cambridge Curriculum to give its students unfettered access to education abroad, was birthed as a fully-fledged International school in September 2013.

So far 4 batches of its learners have successfully complete the Cambridge check point examinations.

The 10-year anniversary also coincided with the speech and prize giving day which saw DIS offering awards to deserving students and staff of the school.

“DIS would not have gotten this far without the hard work and diligence of our teachers, non-teaching staff, and management.

“We say a big thank you to them. We also want to say a big thank you to our cherished parents who have partnered with us over the years to help teach and nurture their children and we say a big thank you for believing in us,” the Executive Director said in his remarks to parents and teachers at the event.

Strides

The School’s Principal, Robert Ahiabenu, explained that last year, DIS  presented 15 candidates for the primary checkpoint.

He reveled that in total, Dison International School scored 5.4/6.0 school average against global average of  3.9/6.0 in English Language while scoring  5.9/6.0 average against the international average of  3.8/6.0 in Mathematics.

Again, he said the school scored 5.9/6.0 average against international average of  4.0/6.0 in Science.

“Our checkpoint experience, has been a great propeller for our forward  march as we embrace the newly introduced Cambridge Early Years  Programme, and starts the Cambridge Advanced Level Programme in September 2024,” he added.

Education

For his part, Alex Amankwa, the unit head of Learning disabilities at the special education service of the Ghana Education Service, stressed the need to intermingle social and emotional literacy to revamp the the county’s educational system adding: “Education should be project, research and collaboration”.

The county, he said could not develop by the use of prescriptive character education in its curriculum.

He, therefore, recommended the use of descriptive character education at all levels through research and collaboration.
