Mt. Zaagkam International School (MZIS)

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.

    Hi Kriste;

    What a wonderful e-mail message. What a blessing it is to know the girls are doing well in their first two or three days of school..They should do well in school and probably do better there than at home.

    It was so nice talking to you last evening. We’re so happy that you are pleased with your new life for the next six or twelve months.

    We love you and are really missing you. This will be pleasing for you, especially Ally and Kyllie.

    We love you and hope the Best for you and your family.

    Mom and Dad
