News from the Executive Principal’s Desk

Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,

It is incredible how quickly the term has sped along. The demands of online learning have been intense but also very engaging. Thanks to everyone; teachers, staff, students and parents who have worked together to grow and develop this programme. 

Congratulations to everyone involved in Peace Week last week. Peace Week provided an opportunity to take part in an international celebration focussing on how to contribute to global well-being. It was nice to see the attention paid to this important topic right across the continuum. Last week saw the Elementary 3 way conferences. This week we have the High School progress reports and of course our end of term newsletter will be going out on Friday.

An important piece of information I would like to share regarding our IBO and WASC visits, with the first taking place in week one of Term 2. We will be welcoming four teams of virtual visitors who will be checking our self-study results, reviewing the structure and systems of the school and of course visiting classes. Students can expect on Tuesday to Thursday of week one, our visitors from the IBO and WASC dropping in to view their online learning. This visit provides a great opportunity for the school to review systems and grow as an organisation.

Have a great week.

Martin Blackburn

Executive Principal
