Akhepran Academy launches mobile app

  

Akhepran Academy has launched its Mobile Application (app) which allows users to view photos of school activities, access subject specific videos through the E-Learning tab, use Google maps tracking to pinpoint field trip directions and locations, choose from hundreds of articles on education, student reward tracker, a car finder and more.

The school recently hosted parents and students to a pre-launch and demonstration of the app, which was developed by Lincoln Bain.

The instructions to install the App are simple -- just go to the Google play store on an Android phone, go to search, type the word akhepran, then press enter. It needs about 15 megabytes to install, and can be identified as the App with the school's official crest. Users log in through their Facebook or Twitter account.

The app makes its way to Apple's app store by the end of December 2015.

School Founder and Principal, former senator, Dr. Jacinta Higgs was excited about the new dimension in the school's growth, and said she saw it as a needed component in her vision of creating a 21st century school, where each child is reached and with communication development at the forefront of this latest advancement, she said Akhepran has undoubtedly once again struck success in claiming new ground in education.

Prior to the launch, the app was introduced in beta form to students for feedback on the app's user-friendly factor.
Iana Cartwright, a twelfth grade scholar, Council of Ma'at representative and debutante said, "For me, the best feature is the photo gallery. It reminds you of all the fun times in class and at school."

 

Ptah Wright, a seventh grader, Council of Ma'at representative, and participant in the Akhepran Cape Eleuthera Island School Immersion Program said, "The 'About Us' option is awesome, because it allows you to learn about the school and its philosophy. It is a great way for parents interested in the school to learn more about us."

Akhepran Making Tribune Headline

  Akhepran International Academy scholars received a rare and unforgettable Media Headline treat on Thursday 26th November when they visited the Tribune Newspaper and Media House for an English Language assignment with the teacher Mr. Allen. Grade 10 scholars were given a very detailed tour of the newspaper facilities and received lessons and demonstrations on the full production process of publishing a daily newspaper. They met reporters, printing technicians and Editors who explained their various roles in helping the team meet their goal of having the newspaper ready for 4am and getting the news to the Bahamian people. The scholars were very intrigued and attentive to the presentations and processes and asked discerning questions to learn just a little more. Mr. Allen celebrated their answers and responses equally well and is assured that there are several budding reporters to come from class of 2018. The highlight of the trip was watching how their class and group photos were uploaded onto the mega screen accompanied with a News Story. They watched and marveled as the Akhepran logo was copied and pasted from the school's website and pasted in full color on the front page of the Tribune. Smiles and amazement filled each scholar and staff to see the ease with which the story was created and most of all to receive a personal copy to share with their families and friends. [Headline Story was only a demonstration...The actual story was published on page 6a of the Tribune]. Great Job and much thanks to the wonderful team at Tribune Media!

Akhepran Thanksgiving Festivites

Akhepran International Academy staff and scholars celebrated Thanksgiving in grand style on Friday, 27th November 2015. Parents and friends of Akhepran joined in the assembly and festivities of the day and enjoyed every moment. The school band and flagettes were a favorite team for the morning as the red, green and yellow flags were beautifully swayed from left to right throughout the audience and on centre stage. Band Director Kelsin Burrows accompanied by David and Aaron Brown on the piano lifted the hearts and voices of all present as the traditional and jazzy songs of harvest were song. Class after class the scholars performed magnificent talents in song, dance, drama, poetry and choral speaking.Grade 10 lead by scholar Brandylee received a resounding standing ovation from the audience for their spectacular performance. Ianna Cartwright manifested a powerful liturgical dance and the Akhepran Choir sent vibratory chords to heaven with their melodic songs.

Moderators Trae Watkins and Antonique Newry - Head Boy and Head Girl respectively did a marvelous job in leading the ceremony and were commendably assisted by members of the Council of Maat leadership team and the primary scholars. The parade of Akhepran Symbols and the African Circle of Life Dance were both solemn and enlightening moments which were spiritually linked to Rev. Kellen Russell's "must hear again" God Divine Sermon and Charge to the audience.

All eyes were pinned to Rev. Russell as he poured out his Spirit and allowed God to speak through him to all present. His key points were to be grateful for all things and blessings in one's life, give God thanks for all experiences you encounter even the bad ones and always praise and trust God so that you may rise above all challenges and successfully achieve your goals. He used powerful personal examples from his 30 years of life including his conception to present day. The festivities continued with an hilarious and talent-filled show, a scrumptious luncheon thanksgiving feast and a dance which the staff and scholars enjoyed.

A hearty and most grateful spirit of thanks and love are extended to Mrs. Doreth Campbell, Mrs. Clarke, Mr. & Mrs. Mullings & family, Mrs. Flowers, Miss Johnson and Mrs. Hawk for organizing the event, to all the parents and guardians who gave so generously and purchased tickets, to all staff who guided the class performances, served and prepared food items, supervised the talent show, patrolled and ensured safety, drove around Nassau to collect food items and to deliver meals to patrons, and music directors. We give thanks!  Hotep!  Maat!  Amen!

Akhepran Aviation in Action

 

Akhepran International Academy uses the Ministry of Education Curriculum as a base to prepare scholars for successfully passing the BJC and BGCSE examinations as well as the SAT and ACT college entrance examinations. However  a major thrust of the vision and goal of the Board of Directors and AIA leadership team is to provide courses and training for our scholars in career paths which are in short demand. As we scope the future needs assessment data for careers in The Bahamas and around the world we tweak our program course offerings to enable our scholars to qualify to apply for the positions. Under the leadership of Captain Fredrick Mcphee, Aviation Scholars are being introduced to the world, knowledge and experiences of the sky via classroom instruction, fieldtrips, practical projects and most enjoyably flight simulation experiences. Recently the scholars completed a comprehensive tour of Lynden Pindling International Airport. The scholars were taught about the necessary safety precautions and methods used, the baggage handling protocols, customer service ethics, and the duties and qualities of a pilot.

Getting into flight school became a bit harder after the September 11th terrorist attacks, especially when it was learned many of the al Qaeda hijackers learned from or practiced flying with the multitude of instructors in Florida. But now the airlines are leaning on these institutions to hurry up and train pilots, as the industry in Dubai, Asia and US is facing shortage as pilots get too old to work. The 2015 Regional Air Cargo Carriers Association (Racca) spring conference in Phoenix opened April 28 on a somber note as members aired concerns about a tangible shortage of pilots affecting their operations. Racca’s membership comprises both Part 135 and 121 operators, some of which fly passengers as well as cargo. Traditionally, Racca member companies act as a stepping-stone for pilots building flight time to apply to larger airlines, but regulatory and other circumstances have vastly thinned the flow of pilots in the pipeline to Racca members.

“We have a serious crisis going on in our industry,” said Racca chairman Tim Komberec and Empire Airlines president and CEO, addressing the opening session at the conference, which was attended by more than 300 people. “There’s much debate about the pilot shortage in the United States and in the world, but there is absolutely no doubt that at our level where we perform, where we recruit pilots from and where we are on the food chain, we have an extremely serious problem and it has taken on crisis proportions. And the thing that is so worrisome is it’s going to affect all of us. We need to see if we can collectively find ways to find solutions to help fix what’s going on.”

 

Here at Akhepran we have begun to play our part in the solution. Aviation in Schools.
