Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,

It was wonderful to have the opportunity of hosting a parent information session regarding our WASC accreditation last week.  It was lovely to see so many parents who were actively involved with the process and to have the opportunity to discuss the very positive implications of this achievement.  Our wonderful Parent Support Group, PSG facilitated the meeting and their positive contribution to our school community must be acknowledged.  Once again we would also like to acknowledge the role that Pak Peter, Ibu Allen and Ibu Nency played as parent representatives on the WASC leadership group.  At the end of the meeting we asked that as many parents as possible take part in our annual continuum parent survey.  The information we gain form these surveys is vital in shaping our planning. This is particularly important this year as we are drafting the 2021-2024 strategic plan and want as much input as possible from all stakeholders.

The organisation of the mock examinations which are all being run online has been superb and is a real credit to Mr Simon and his team. Running examinations online is no easy task and they should feel very satisfied with the levels of organisation and engagement.  Finally, we wish all the very best of luck to those students who are involved with the Sekolah Ciputra Model United Nations this weekend. I know that you will all make us very proud. 

Speaking of feeling proud, thank you to everyone who has participated in the preparation of the Grade 10 Personal Project Exhibition. This is a challenging project in the best of times but organising a virtual exhibition by splicing together 138 videos takes it to a new level!  Thank you everyone for your hard work and dedication. 

Have a great week!

Martin Blackburn
