End of the Academic Year-End of the Academic Year

As we reach the end of this extraordinary school year, I wanted to take a moment to reflect on the journey we have all been through together. The challenges posed by the COVID-19 pandemic tested our resilience, patience, and adaptability in ways we could have never imagined. However, despite the hardships of the past three years, we have all made it through, sent our students to university, taught our children in and out of the classroom and welcomed back our youngest to the outstanding teaching and learning spaces across the campus. 

I do want to express my gratitude to all our parents who have been patient, adaptable and most of all supportive of their children as our students struggled with online learning and missing the sociability of their friends at school.  I also want to acknowledge our teachers who have gone above and beyond to ensure that their students reached their full potential, the highest grades possible and ensured the continuity of education for all students no matter the circumstances. 

"If you hear a voice within you say 'you cannot paint,' then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced."

Wise words indeed from renowned painter Vincent van Gogh.  Having confidence in our abilities - whether they be in art, music, sports, academics or any skill we wish to learn and develop - is a vital skill, and one which is engrained in our school values alongside creativity and consideration.  It delighted me, therefore, to end the academic year on a profoundly positive note by issuing the Principal's Awards to students across the school who have demonstrated significant confidence in a variety of ways across this school year.  It reaffirmed my belief that our students are special and that they have incredible futures ahead of them.

I'm sure many of you will now be heading off on wonderful adventures across China and internationally, so please let me take this opportunity to wish you all safe and enjoyable journeys.  I look forward to seeing you all in August for the start of next academic year.
