    Boarders Handbook

    pdf -    In joining the Boarding Community of Mzuzu International Academy we hope you will take advantage of all the learning opportunities available and contribute to the growth of the community. As the great American Educator said ‘“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.”  Students who leave Mzuzu International Academy do so with the skills to be lifelong learners and thus contributors to an increasingly challenging and complex world. Should you have any questions or concerns about any aspect of School Life or Boarding please do not hesitate to contact the Principal’s Office  

  • Child Protection Policy

    Child Protection Policy

    pdf -   Child abuse and neglect are of growing concern in schools throughout the world. Child abuse and neglect are violations of a child’s human rights and are obstacles to the child’s education as well as their physical, emotional, and spiritual development.   Schools are in a position to notice when things are going wrong for their students. Schools need to ensure that all children in their care are afforded a safe and secure environment in which to grow and develop.   Educators, because they have the opportunity to observe and interact with children over time, are in a unique position to identify children who need help and protection. As such, educators have a professional and ethical obligation to identify children who are in need of help and protection and to take steps to ensure that the child and family avail themselves of the services needed to remedy any situation that constitutes child abuse or neglect.    

  • Homework Policy

    Homework Policy

    pdf - Homework is any work or activity which students are asked to do outside lesson time either on their own or with parents or carers. Homework should not prevent students from participating in an activity after school such as sport, music or clubs of any kind. Equally, students should plan such activities to allow time to complete homework. The purpose of homework · To encourage students to develop the confidence and self-discipline to work on their own, an essential skill for adult life. · To consolidate and reinforce skills and understanding. · To extend school learning, for example through additional reading. · To enable students to devote time to particular demands such as project work. · To support the home/school relationship. 

  • Prospectus

    Prospectus

    pdf - Welcome to the Mzuzu International Academy Prospectus We hope it will give you a flavour of a very special school. After many years in international education it is a real honour and a pleasure to lead this fast developing school. During its relatively short history the Academy has developed a reputation as a learning focused school and a centre of academic excellence, based on outstanding IGCSE results.   As our school motto succinctly puts it ‘Education for a Global Future’ is the key and I am reminded of the words of Eric Hoffer. ‘In times of change the learners will inherit the earth, while the knowers will find themselves beautifully equipped to deal with a world that no longer exists.’ When I see young people so at ease with modern technology it is a constant reminder that we all need to be learners in today’s world. As mentioned elsewhere in this prospectus learning and its associated academic success is central to all we do at Mzuzu International Academy. However, through our various academic and non-academic programmes we seek to give students a variety of experiences that will prepare them for life beyond school. Mzuzu International Academy is a microcosm of the world we live in with students and staff from many different, cultural, religious, ethnic and social backgrounds. All are equally valued and encouraged to interact with their peers. As this world gets smaller and more complex the ability and willingness to work and live with others becomes increasingly important. The phrase ‘No man is an island’ is even more true today and will be increasingly so tomorrow than when John Donne wrote it in 1624. Here at Mzuzu International Academy ‘Education for a Global Future’ are not just fancy words that adorn our school badge but what we strive to achieve every day. A prospectus can only provide a very brief impression of a school and I hope you will also take a look at our website that contains a good deal more information, www.mzuzuacademy.org, or take up our open invitation for you to visit our campus. I look forward to welcoming you to Mzuzu International Academy. With all best wishes, Peter H. Yates MBE MA B.Ed Hons FRGS ILMP
