The NFHS or National Federation of High Schools is the governing body in the United States for all high school athletics and activities.

Through their learning portal NFHS Learn they provide over 70 online courses with the majority of them being free. There are courses for; coaches, administrators, officials, students, and parents with a number of courses also about non athletic or activity topics such as Homework Help and Understanding Vaping and E-Cigarettes.

Since 2015 it has been mandatory for AIS coaches to complete the Concussion in Sport course each year but this year we have raised the expectation to include; Fundamentals of Coaching, Protecting Students from Abuse and Sudden Cardiac Arrest.

This year the NFHS has started a school ‘Honor Roll’ program where schools are honored when they have at least 90% of coaches complete these 4 courses. With their commitment to professional development for our coaches, this week AIS Vienna became the first international school in the world to be given this recognition.

I would like to share with you how relationships and the arts matter in my teaching practice here at ISB under the current pandemic. There are two aspects to my experience. The first aspect is keeping the connection going in our Virtual Learning Environment (VLE) and the second how the final DP Theatre performance tasks were completed with one senior performing from their home in Canada with an audience of peers online live here in Belgrade.

According to a recent World Economic Forum report, 65% of children currently in Primary School will enter a job that does not yet exist. The fastest growing job sector is the ‘Gig Economy’, whereby people are not employed in the traditional sense, but instead sell their skills on an open market. Some estimates indicate that around by 2022, 40% of all jobs will be in the Gig Economy.
