Cooperation in Action

Preschool - 17 October 2017



“Unity is strength… when there is teamwork and collaboration, wonderful things can be achieved.” Mattie J.T. Stepanek
“How can you hold the hula hoop horizontally using only one finger? Is this possible? Can you do it alone? How can you do it?” The questions triggered our learners’ curiosity where they had to think of possible solutions. At the end, they all agreed that it can be achieved through teamwork, therefore by helping each other.
Consequently, teamwork was evident in our centers and during recess. On one hand, learners worked together while role-playing in the dramatic center as a mother, a father, or a baby to form a family; they also collaborated to complete a puzzle. Moreover, they work side by side, using wooden building blocks to build a community.

AMALOUNA Student as Researcher Initiative

High School - 17 October 2017



One of the science breaking laws was discovered after a man asked himself a question, “Why did the apple fall downwards?” Newton then hypothesized his theory and went on to initiate laws that we still use in physics class up to this day. Asking questions then sculpting a path to discover its answers is not an easy thing to do. Research is the essence of humanity, for without it we would not know how and why the world functions the way it does.

I am honored to say that I was one of the students able to participate in the AMALOUNA’s “Student as Researcher Initiative (SRI)”. This program combines students from public and private schools to work on PhD research questions in the AUB Science labs under the supervision of lab advisors. The topic of each group ranged from ones related to Leukemia and others that would aid in curing non-treatable diseases. We were put under the circumstances of real-life researchers and scientists as we analyzed results and experiments from topics we have never heard of. Then, our research and experimentation results were presented to our family members and doctors of different scientific fields.

The SRI allowed me to explore fields and different options that broadened my perspective of the research facilities, and opened my eyes to new ideas in the fields of medicine. In the end, science is always developing especially in terms of human health and development, so being a part of the cultivation of the medical industry really is a huge privilege. Though I do tend to be anti-social sometimes, I had to break out of my comfort zone by meeting new people from different schools, along with experts in the vast scientific fields. I might’ve felt out of place sometimes, especially with the rather long scientific words and terms, but as Albert Einstein once said, “If we knew what we were doing, it wouldn’t be called research.” >>>MORE

Educational journey to Oxford university during the summer

- High School - 2 October 2017



City of Dreaming Spires

"She was not built out of common stone
But out of all men’s yearning and all prayer
That she might live, eternally our own,
The Spirit’s stronghold—barred against despair." -C.S Lewis, "Oxford"
I have always been accustomed to reading poems and pieces by William Wordsworth, Oscar Wilde, and T.S Eliot, but all my readings ignited in my soul as I was honored to visit the city that inspired these writers. A scholarship to attend the Oxbridge Summer Seminar housed in Corpus Christi College brought me to the "city of dreaming spires" as described by the highly respectable Professor James G. Basker, and that was definitely the warm epitome of my summer.
I spent an entire week attending courses from English Literature to Business, and with every course my internal desire to transcend all limits and only yearn for excellence was spurred even further. On an even more personal level, I learned that education is not just a certificate that would get you into the workforce but a never-ending desire to learn and ask questions, to grow and reach out to full potentials, and to go beyond the norms of the world in order to change it. I got introduced to a culture where you were not judged by how many shoes you have or how many outfits you manage to squeeze into the week but how many books you read and how long you can keep a sophisticated conversation going. >>>MORE

The PYP Exhibition 2017 - Elementary School

25 September 2017



In February 2017, Grade 5 learners started tuning into the PYP Exhibition; building on the prior knowledge they have gained from visiting the PYP Exhibition stations and interviewing the exhibits of the year before; they deeply explored the purpose of the PYP Exhibition as an event that culminates their development of the elements of the programme and identified their roles and the responsibilities of all people involved.

Under the transdisciplinary theme “Sharing the Planet”, the learners explored the central idea: The significance of an issue promotes individuals to take actions that impact communities. They used a variety of resources, watched the news, and interviewed people within the school and in the city of Saida in search for real-life issues that impact the community. Accordingly, they decided on issues, such as discrimination, unemployment, empowering women, addiction, road safety, etc. The learners were grouped according to their interest, and after checking the global significance and the relevance of the issues, they moved to the planning phase. As a community of learners, they developed essential agreements and created timelines to organize the process. >>>MORE

AED Protects the Lives of HHHS Youngsters and Athletes - Middle School

19 September 2017



Sudden cardiac arrest can be the first vivid symptom of hypertrophic cardiomyopathy disease in youngsters especially the athletes. Our school aims at raising awareness regarding cardiac risk among the youth. Dr. Mona Othman El Hage, who lost her son due to Sudden Cardiac Arrest, once said, "With heart screening and better preparedness in the sport fields, we can protect the lives of young athletes and give them another chance to live longer and healthier."
To help prevent this serious problem from happening, it has been necessary to advocate for cardiac screening that was conducted at our school during the previous years by Champ's Fund, a charitable fund department of Family Medicine at the American University of Beirut Medical Center. Moreover, HHHS has provided its registered
nurses  with the opportunity to attend workshops about First Aid Training & Basic Life Support that were held by the Order of Nurses and AUBMC given by Champ's Fund.>>>MORE
