Global Leadership Program
This is the 5th year the program has run.
The GLP organized a Zambian celebration in April to give the students an opportunity to meet a Zambian born individual who could answer questions, provide samples of Zambian food, demonstrate how to use Chitenges, and more. Our member Esther Chongo represented ZamBC.
The event was very successful. Past and current GLP students attended and thoroughly enjoyed themselves. A big thank you to Esther for providing some much knowledge and entertainment!

The Human Liver: By Chibesa Mumba
Features: Kuchimwela Malyo
Within the last five years of high school I have seen myself
acquire, put to practice, and achieve personal management skills, fundamental
skills and teamwork skills. I recently graduated from Byrne Creek Secondary
School on Monday May 30th, 2011. This was one of the greatest and proudest
moments of my life; I thank God for making it possible. During my time at Byrne
Creek Secondary School I have earned multiple Principles’ Honor Roll
certificates and an Outstanding Work Ethic certificate.
I am now ready to aim higher and continue into post-secondary education at either college or university.
I would not have come this far without the encouragement and support of my dear mother, late father and all of my family and friends who constantly urged me to work hard and pursue my dreams.
I would also like to thank the teaching staff for all their hard work and the knowledge that they passed onto me. I look forward to major in Biology as I begin my Bachelor of Biology program in September. I then hope to study to become a Doctor specialized in Obstetrics and Gynecology. It is my prayer that God will continue to give me the knowledge and strength needed in order to pursue my career goal. Once again thank you all for your support and encouragement.

Home work- By Brian Mtambo
Hi, my name is Brian Mtambo and I am doing an article about homework. This article exposes and seeks the real truth about homework. In this article you will learn about things you’ve never thought of so sit back and enjoy.
“Homework is defined as out-of-class tasks assigned to students as an extension or elaboration of classroom work. There are three types of homework: practice, preparation, and extension.
Practice assignments reinforce newly acquired skills.For example, students who have just learned a new method of solving a mathematical problem should be given sample to complete on their own.
Preparation assignments help students get ready for activities that will occur in the classroom. Students may, for example, be required to do background research on a topic to be discussed later in class. Extension assignments are frequently long-term continuing projects that parallel class work. Students must apply previous learning to complete these assignments, which include science fair projects and term papers
Why Is Homework Important?
Children across the world ask that question and have no right response. “Because you have to do it” is the answer most of us get, so I’m here to uncover the real truth about homework.
One of the reasons homework is assigned is to improve our social responsibility and get us ready for the world. When we have an assignment we have to gather materials and hand it in on time.
Giving a student a homework assignment is similar to getting papers to work on from your boss at your future job (you have to work on it and hand it on time or else you will lose money in your pay check or even worse be fired).
Homework can provide other benefits such as our ability to bring an assignment home gather and organize necessary materials to complete the assignment, return the assignment and receive a grade. This strengthens our sense of responsibility and time management skills are learned. There is also improved and development of personal skills such as time management gained by completing homework. When homework proceeds smoothly, it can become a positive aspect of the relationship with our parents.
Although we often do not consider that homework serves a school administrative role, it offers schools an opportunity to let parents know what their children are learning. Homework can play a public relations role by keeping parents informed about class activities and policies. Homework can also fulfill an administrative role in helping schools achieve their overall mission of improving student achievement.
Another reason why homework is important is that it can help you practice the day’s lesson. Some subjects, just like math, have some formulas and calculations that cannot easily be learned after one looks at it. If you would like to master your math subjects, there is a need for you to do homework so you can familiarize yourself with the steps to the solution, so that you can easily answer quizzes and exams later on.
