The girls started school this week! They are attending Mt. Zaagkam International School (MZIS). MZIS is a very small school that operates exclusively for expatriates working for Freeport McMoRan/PTFI. It is owned and completely funded by the company, and is a fully accredited school that will allow students to transfer to any other accredited school in the world.
We went to the school on Tuesday morning to register the girls and to introduce them to the school’s superintendent, their teachers, and the other students. At the end of the tour, they were given the opportunity to stay, and begin class, or wait to start school on Wednesday. Kylee chose to jump right in and start class; Ally chose to wait until Wednesday.
So far, they are both enjoying school very much! They are meeting people from all over the world, including Australia, Canada, South Africa, New Zealand, and other parts of the U.S. This is going to be an incredible learning experience for them on many different levels.
