I have had the pleasure of spending the last three days working intensively with 25 teachers from across our family of schools in China on a staff training programme to support the development of their leadership skills.

Swimmers in Nanjing

Nanjing Swimming Competition

A very big round of applause for all the swimmers who took part in this weekend's Nanjing swimming competition! Being one of the smallest schools, there was only a small group of swimmers but it has been amazing to see the impact our team has been able to have on all the events.


Dynamic and Forward Looking

Happy New Year to you all and welcome back to school. I wonder whether you have made any ‘resolutions’ for the year ahead? You may be one of those very disciplined people who find the whole notion of needing a calendar-based prompt to firm your resolve quite bewildering.

The Spirit of Christmas

And so, as the colder days and darker nights draw in, the term closes with winter carols and festive parties. The school has been full of Christmas spirit these last few weeks, with baubles and sparkles everywhere, reflecting the unmistakable, growing, youthful excitement of the nearness of Christmas. It is one of the most rewarding aspects of working in a school, when, even as an adult, one cannot help but be caught up in the excitement of the season.

Yoga can unite the mind, body and spirit and can improve flexibility, strength, coordination. It also has a variety of benefits for children during the developmental stages in their lives.
