ACD celebrates National Youth Day. Albania celebrates Youth Day every December 8th. It is a day to remember the student’s protests in the early years of 1990 against dictatorial regime of Enver Hoxha. Students of what was then the Enver Hoxha University, now the University of Tirana, marched through city streets, demanding reformation of the political system. The march started on 8 December 1990, but the number of protesters reached 3,000 by December 11, forcing the predecessor of Hoxha, Mr Ramiz Alia to meet with the students in order to quiet the unrest. He agreed to take further steps to democratize Albania. This is how begin the long process of replacing the old communist regime with democracy. .. .. Historia e Dites se Rinise ne Shqiperi .. .. 8 December was declared as the Youth Day for the first time in 2009 with the proposal of Former Prime Minister that time, Mr Sali Berisha to remember this important day which marked the first movement to overthrow the iron regime of Enver Hoxha. #nationalyouthday #albania 🇦🇱 #albanianholidays #albaniancollegedurres #internationalbaccalaureate #education #school #internationalschool #Shkollë #AlbanianCollege

So impressed with this class of Grade 3 PYP students who have arranged @kick_off_cancer_acd event running for a school day around the atrium in order to raise money for hospice of hope in Albania. ... They researched, found and decided on the charity, invited them here, advertised the event, set up the IG account, arranged the TV reporter and cameras to attend. Wrote to the parents, collected money, arrange the rest of the school to participate and also joined in the running. This is what student action looks like! .. .. . #PYP #pypstudents #action #charity #principalsofinstagram #ibworldschool #internationalschool #albania 🇦🇱 #AlbanianCollege #AlbanianCollegeDurres #TransformingteachingandlearninginAlbania #teachabroad #teachoverseas #teachersofinstagram

Today we welcomed two representatives from AdvancED, Kelly Knipe and Anna Pehar onto our campus today. They were impressed with the classes they observed, the teachers they met and the powerful conversations they had with our students, The purpose of their visit was to consider our readiness to begin the process towards international accreditation. This a journey to build security and confidence in our community in the successful implementation of high quality teaching and learning at ACD. Following a series of conversation focal points, it was announced that we will move from being an applicant school to being a 'Candidate for Accreditation' and preparing for the Engagement Review Team Visit. The formal announcement will come in about two weeks. This change in status will provide guidance and support for the direction in which we will head in terms of alignment with international standards, quality teaching and learning, strategic planning for school development, and assurances for the international education community that we are a high quality school. This is excellent news for our community and most importantly for our colleagues and our students. Thank you to all for the role that each of you play in creating a variety of learning opportunities and experiences for our students. Thank you also, for your hard work, dedication and efforts in preparing for this readiness visit today. .. .. . #AdvancED #ReadinessVisit #accreditationjourney #americandiploma #internationalschool #internationalaccreditation #continuousimprovement #AlbanianCollege #albaniancollegedurres #principalsofinstagram #teachersofinstagram #qualifiedteachers
