AISA Support Statement

June 9, 2020

Dear AISA Community,

 

Racism, injustice and violence need to stop. As an international school in Africa that is committed to educating our future leaders, and to the wellbeing of the entire community,  AISA stands in solidarity with all those affected in communities around the world, and with those collective voices that are taking a stand against racism and oppression.

 

At this time, we come together as a school community to recognize the anger, shock, frustration, and indignation, rightly provoked by the senseless killings of innocent citizens in the United States, and throughout the world, due to systemic racism and injustice. 

 

At the core of AISA’s Mission and Vision, are our Core Values.  These values are the pillar of what AISA is and what we stand for today and in the future: 

 

  • All people have equal and inherent worth and dignity

  • Collaboration and consensus-building contribute to an effective community 

  • Embracing diversity

  • Continuous growth and perseverance are fundamental in pursuing one’s goals

  • Intentionally building trust facilitates dependable relationships

 

These values are intended to bring out the best of our community and to support all those within, and outside it.  

 

As a school, our purpose is to inspire, enlighten, motivate, and educate.   It is our duty to galvanize our students and our community positively, to help be the change this world needs.  A world that is inclusive, equitable and without discrimination.

 

In order for this to happen, we must acknowledge privilege, systematic racism, and oppression, and then initiate uncomfortable but necessary conversations to help us, as a school, be instrumental in both sincere and positive change.  

 

As a school and a community, we pledge to be part of this change.

 

Sincerely,

 

Randy Neen

AISA Head of School
