I am writing this hub from the NAE senior leadership annual conference at our education camp in Tanzania, Africa. Forty-three other principals and other senior colleagues from NAE across the world are in attendance. We have spent several days in professional development discussing our schools, our organisation and sharing good practice for the benefit of all the young people in our care.
In March 2017 we will be sending approximately twenty of our students to this camp and it has been a great opportunity for me to see the camp first hand and involve myself in the various activities that the students will be engaged in.
The camp was established by NAE as an outdoor education centre for all our schools to access. As well as the experience of visiting Africa it will also be an opportunity for students to meet other young people from across the world and engage in community support projects.
We are all keen to ensure that we support local communities and work with schools and people who are less fortunate than ourselves. As part of our conference this week, we visited a local primary school. I was honoured and delighted to represent BVIS and spent half a day with the other principals and senior staff building a complete set of desks for a classroom. When our students visit they will engage in similar types of work.
There are many more exciting initiatives and opportunities for our students and our school now that we have full and complete access to all the Nord Anglia Education programmes, events and activities. This a very exciting time to be a student at our school.
I wish you all a very relaxing weekend.
