Dr. Mary Tadros and Mr. Abdel Majid Shamlawi briefed the attendees about the importance of TSF, a forum that is designed to provide teachers with modern and creative strategies and innovative teaching techniques. Moreover, Dr. Tadros emphasized on the importance of the following points:

1- Integrating the IB Program in private schools especially after getting its equivalence from the Lebanese Government. The program can help creating challenging programs of international education.

2- Adopting Diploma Program (DP) which prepares students for success in higher education and encourages them to be proactive in their society.
