QSI Quintile Newsletter 2022/02
Connecting the QSI Family worldwide...
Middle States Association (MSA) visiting teams have worked to complete visits to all QSI schools and then compile their observations into a final report that we will share with the QSI community. We are aiming for accreditation in May 2022, at which point all schools will receive updated Component School Accreditation certificates.
The exciting process of working to achieve Systems accreditation has already led to systemic improvements as we embrace systems thinking to tackle organizational challenges.
Interview with Aaron Harnden, QSI Director of Information and Communication.
What are your current roles and responsibilities?
I currently split my time in two areas: Regional Supervisor of African schools and the Director of Information and Communication. I work with the directors in our schools in Africa, and I also do a wide variety of work in the communication portion of my job, which has led me into working on various committees, writing official statements, acting as a liaison with the counselors and headquarters, and meeting with individuals throughout QSI.
QSI school counselors collaborated with connectED to develop our first ever spring QSI Global University Fair. All secondary students, staff and parents from our 35 schools were invited to participate. Over 900 members of our QSI community registered for the fair, where live university sessions and virtual information booths were available 7-9 February.
