Academic success

This kit is intended for 8-12 year olds and was developed as part of Phase 2 of the "Education for All : Access to and Maintenance of the School for Burundian Children through Playdagogy" (AMEP). The objective of this project is to contribute to the achievement of the goal of universal primary education in Burundi.

The aim of this new kit is to combat school drop-out by creating conditions conducive to academic success so that as many children as possible can remain in school. To do this, it seems important to us to ask ourselves about the relationship that each student has with his teacher, his colleagues, but also with himself. Through these 6 sessions, we try to put the children in reflection on this triple relationship, and to bring out in the student more inclusive and cooperative attitudes, in order to create a positive school climate.

academic success



At school, the child/student faces various obstacles (difficulties in Mathematics, conflict with another student, absence from school to help his parents in the field, etc.) that can put him in a situation of failure. Faced with these obstacles and failures, a child may not react, letting himself go, even to the point of abandonment. These various situations can lead the child to experience emotions such as anger, sadness, fear. Understanding, accepting, managing these emotions is learned to allow everyone to live with and react appropriately. A child learns knowledge at school but also learns to discover and get to know himself. A child can gain self-confidence, can feel confident if he or she is convinced of having qualities, of being good at certain activities, but also if he or she perceives his or her shortcomings, weaknesses and seeks to improve, to progress. To respect others, his environment, he must first respect himself, accept what he is, defend his own ideas and convictions.

Too many students because of their socio-economic situation, their gender, or a disability do not access school or leave it too quickly. The school does not give everyone enough chance to succeed because it too often creates a competitive and elitist climate, excluding students who do not meet certain criteria. Disrespectful behaviour between students (mockery for example) is unfortunately very common in schools. They emanate from prejudices, from false representations that children may have, but also simply from jealousy. Indeed, the notion of competition between students is very present in schools (achieving the best academic results, being better than the other). This very individualistic spirit, where the notion of group and mutual aid is relegated to the background, can only favour the exclusion of the weakest, the most vulnerable. Solidarity between students is not sufficiently promoted, defended. It is important to make a child who is doing well at school aware that he or she has everything to gain by supporting and helping his or her peers to progress.
