“WE’RE BACK!” 2018/19 BEGINS

Monday, 20th August 2018

The 2018-2019 year is off to a great start. We started the year by welcoming the students and parents back to kick-start another action-packed year. On the first morning, the canteen was abuzz as students shared their stories of summer trips around the world, internships, and final preparations before heading off to college.

The first day began with an assembly where we reiterated our school’s values and parents renewed their commitment to school expectations. Following the assembly, parents and students visited the classrooms to meet their new teachers and hear about new courses. Grade 5 students were thrilled to hear about their new robotics class, and high school students listened to Mr. McBride outline further details of his upcoming AP macroeconomics and AP microeconomics courses.

Our 60 new pre-kindergartners had already spent summer-school with us, so were quite familiar with their new classrooms and teachers, and confidently showed their parents around.

Summer trips this year were almost too numerous to mention. Students headed off to enjoy summer experiences in different parts of the world across four continents. Some new experiences for our students included aeronautical engineering in Florida and Alabama, our first foray into Scotland, to the University of St. Andrews and our second trip to Oxford, UK as well as a return to Australia and Singapore.

Teachers, new and old, excitedly met their new classes and we all bade a fond farewell to graduates heading to further their education overseas.

Welcome back, everyone! Let’s make 2018-2019 another year of achievement.
