The entire school team is trained in first aid thanks to the school’s partnership with the Parami clinic, and its French doctor, Doctor Cattin.
On each campus, a first aid kit allows the staff to react to small everyday injuries. For medical emergencies, the school’s procedure is to turn first to the privileged contact communicated by parents at the start of the year, or failing that, we contact the Parami clinic which takes charge of the student immediately.
Regularly during the year, the teams from the clinic come for medical check ups and check that the health records are up to date.
For any school trip, the teams leave with a first aid kit.
In high school, sex education courses following the French Ministry of Education program are provided to students.
Civil liability is compulsory and will be requested at the start of the school year. It is imperative that one of the parents can be contacted at all times for better care of children in the event of a health problem at school.
Sick children should not come to school (risk of contagion, discomfort, fever …). If the child has a fever, it is often a sign of a contagious disease. By not sending your child to school, it will limit its spread.
Pupils are also encouraged to use fresh water throughout the day from drinking machines.
Coronavirus in Southeast Asia
The LFIR is in close contact with the French Embassy in Myanmar, the Ministry of Sports and Health, the medical services and the AEFE, regarding the evolution of the situation about the Covid-19 virus.
Remote learning was implemented to guarantee the safety of students, their families and LFIR staff, following recommendations from the authorities. The teams are ready to welcome face-to-face classes as soon as the situation allows.
A reception protocol covering all the measures taken within the establishment has been drawn up internally for the start of the 2020 school year.
To learn more about our remote learning program, contact the Secretariat at email@example.com.
Specific support programs
PPRE (Personalized Educational Success Program) are set up at school, for certain pupils with difficulties or for whom it is necessary to adapt the educational content.
A document concerning PAI (Individualized Welcome Project) is to be completed by parents if the child suffers from asthma, a particular allergy, a specific medical treatment which needs to be communicated to the school.
Finally, the PAP (Personalized Support Plan), is a plan signed by the parents and the teaching team which makes adaptations when your child is dyslexic, has difficulties with orthography … This therefore concerns all of what we called “learning disabilities”. It is often a speech therapy assessment that allows you to have concrete elements to adapt to the best.
Since January 2020, a Pollution protocol has been helping to determine the pollution thresholds (AQI and PM2.5) from which the teams adapt their activities (sports, according to students at risk …). It was developed from surveys of two locations in Rangoon and measurements made by our own device. Even if this is a crucial question, it is clear that the pollution levels are relatively low (in comparison with the Asia zone), this being particularly true in the districts where the two campuses are located.
The LFIR is in contact with a bilingual French / English psychologist who practices, among other things, “play therapy”: Wailee Kui. She can help children in many cases. She works in Rangoon. Do not hesitate to ask for contact details from the secretariat.
The “Psy Expat” network has also been recommended by the community of parents of students:
http://www.reseau-psyexpat.com/. They can work remotely, by videochat.
Other good feedback concerns Marble Psychological Service (English): https://www.marble-psychology.com/
The AEFE network to which the LFIR belongs puts security among its priorities. To this end, a company specializing in the prevention and management of intrusion risks in schools has been commissioned by the Agency to come and train staff and students on the Intrusion-Attack risk.
In close collaboration with the security services of the French Embassy in Myanmar, the LFIR updated the PPMS (Individual Security Plan) for each campus. These documents give instructions to all personnel concerning all risks (fire, earthquake, intrusion, etc.). Exercises are held regularly every year.
