Message from the Head of School – October 21, 2022

On Monday 24th, we will once again welcome back our International Day celebrations.  This may be described as one of the biggest events on our calendar. In line with our mission of nurturing globally-minded confident learners, and our definition of international mindedness, I invite all of those who can attend to come along and celebrate our diversity. As the PTA will have made you aware, we have an afternoon of celebrations, activities, events, and of course, some lovely food, to acknowledge who we are and how we stand united from all corners of the globe. The event starts at 1230 and concludes at 1445 in the field and covered court area. NOTE: CCA’s will be postponed on this day, and will resume on Tuesday 25th October. On behalf of our whole community, I would like to take this opportunity to thank Lucy Junghans, PTA President, previous PTA officers Jinae and Novvi, Ms. Nadia PYPC, and all others involved in putting this massive event together. It has been a HUGE task, well done.

May I ask that in the interests of maintaining our North Field football park in good condition, that parents and drivers do not park or turn on the field. Due to the recent rains, the ground has become soft and this has led to troughs being formed in the pitch due to cars parking and turning. 

Sick students: Please remember that when students are sick, they should remain at home to avoid the spread of the illness. Towards the end of the last term, it was noted that a number of students appeared quite sick and had to be sent home to rest. This is still even more important in these current times as we try to reduce covid transmission.

Thank you for your feedback regarding our recently held 3-way conferences. The feedback was very positive but also gave us valuable insights into areas that we need to develop further. We will shortly be sending out short surveys to students to gather feedback on the quality of the food providers that we use. This will be done in school, during homeroom.
