CCE is delighted to introduce the first member school from Ethiopia - Kelem International School!
Kelem International School (KIS) is a K-8 school based on the best practices of Finnish education system and the Finnish National Core Curriculum. We are on the road to revolutionizing the education system in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. Implementing the Finnish Curriculum, we thrive to create an environment where students develop and learn through inquiry and develop their awareness of the process of learning so that they become lifelong learners.
Our curriculum is based on the conception of learning that sees the pupils as active actors. They learn to become critical thinkers, set goals and solve problems both independently and together with others. Learning is an inseparable part of an individual's growth as a human being and the building of a decent life for the community. Language, physical elements, and the use of different senses are essential for thinking and learning.
Through this conversant system, we foster in the minds of our students that learning is a life-long endeavor. This is manifested in our effort to facilitate quality continued professional development of our teachers and staff. Our school aims to produce responsible and compassionate global citizens, with respect and recognition of the rich heritage of our host country, Ethiopia.
