Mr Nicholas West Weekly Update 04th December

Last week, I was invited to talk to a Year 10 class about leadership; they were studying various leadership styles as part of their Business Studies learning.

It was a real pleasure to stand up in front of them and talk about my core beliefs, the importance of people in any organisation and how they should be valued. They asked some very thoughtful questions and I hope the answers they received helped them with their project and homework. I know over the coming lessons they will be meeting our Human Resources staff, formulating a job advert, shortlisting applications and conducting interviews for a position; all key skills for getting the right people in your workplace. In the future, they will be making these decisions for real as they employ a workforce for the companies they are leading, as too will our Primary children in the years to come. If your child is in F1, it is hard to imagine this, but as educators we are already aware and ensuring your children develop personally, socially and academically.

There was such a great feeling and atmosphere of learning in the Year 10 classroom and it was obvious these children are getting truly creative learning opportunities. Afterwards, whilst reflecting on this, it made me think about what our Primary students are learning and what great further opportunities they will get when they too embark upon their IGCSEs. All the way through our school, from EYFS to future International A Levels, the children experience how to be independent, to be good people acting with respect and integrity, how to be critical thinkers, applying their skills and therefore learning the characteristics of effective leadership. I will not personally witness the benefits and effects of your children on Vietnam and Hanoi in the future but maybe one day I will read about one of our F1 students who has led great change and improvement for their country.
