As communicated in our "Principal's Update - 17 June, 2022", we have been advised to amend our calendar for next academic year so that we start Term 1 on 1st September in line with other Beijing schools, both local and international.
We expected that this might be the case and were fully prepared for this change. It is highly beneficial in that we get to have induction and training for new and returning teachers before the students return on 1st September as well as time to prepare the learning environment for a very positive start to the new academic year.
We had previously planned for 181 days of face-to face learning on campus, so we have made some minor adjustments to the calendar ensure that exactly the same number of days of on-campus learning are still offered to students next year. Please see the amended calendar attached, showing that the academic year runs from Thursday 1st September 2022 to Wednesday 21st June 2023. The 'Back to School Learning' resources that have already been prepared will still be sent to you so that learning can be supported during a slightly extended summer break.
We know that this is a late adjustment but is a welcome one since it gives clarity now rather than uncertainty in August and gives more time for the control and prevention of the virus to have been fully effective.
Please note that as indicated on the calendar
- Holiday dates are subject to change per local government announcements.
- For the most up-to-date calendar, please see our school online calendar, which will be updated regularly.
