Nord Anglia Education, of which our school is a fundamental and very productive part, declare that being part of the organization allows our students to achieve more than if they were not part of it.
Parents will have heard me reference the Juilliard Programme for Music. We will soon be hosting an information visit from the Juilliard Dance Liaison Team as this section of the programme is developed and rolled out. Julliard Drama will come later. The first group of schools is now involved with the MIT project, allowing for the development of more extensive Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths project-based enquiry and learning, and will certainly not restricted to older children. As we know young children can be extremely creative and often see issues very early. And they can also be more open to discussing matters without any sort of attached ‘baggage’.
The NAE Global Campus calendar of events has been launched here in school and will gather momentum as we develop, becoming fully embedded into life here in the terms and years ahead.
The recent trip to Tanzania for NAE School Leaders, which I referenced in my letter last week, brought to our attention a further wonderful initiative. Through recent discussions, the team has secured a special collaborative partnership with the world-renowned UNICEF, focusing specifically on the Millenium Development Goals. The attached video will give parents and interested parties more information about this exciting project. It does really promise to be a life enhancing activity, helping shape in young people robust value systems and ways of thinking, as well as give the students of all ages avenues for creative thinking, collaboration, and team work. This is a truly wonderful opportunity for all the students.
More details will be forthcoming but I commend it to you enthusiastically.
