Isaiah 58: 11

Isaiah 58:11

The LORD will guide you always; he will satisfy your needs in a sun-scorched land and will strengthen your frame. You will be like a well-watered garden, like a spring whose waters never fail.

School Again

Max and Simon and Tim have had a good first week back at Qatar Academy. Simon is in Grade 8 and Max in Grade 10 of the International Baccalaureate Middle Years Program (IB MYP). Both boys are happy about their teachers this year.

Max's program has a new course this year called Music Production. This is his Arts elective. It is focused on the technology involved in producing and recording sound. He will be using his skills to help with the school Musical this fall and to assist his Thursday evening Youth Band.

Max also has a "Personal Project" that is part of the Grade 10 MYP. A student can choose to do anything that will change him in a personal way. Max has created a project with a couple of parts. He spent the summer working with Grandad to carve 20 "comfort birds". Now he is working on the next step of his project which is to find a group of people who will receive the birds. Max has learned the skill of carving and is now doing research into the therapeutic benefits of touch, the cultural influences of wood, and the health issues in Qatar.
