It was wonderful to see so many of you at our ‘Meet the Teacher’ event last week. I hope you found it useful and informative. Remember though, you may make an appointment to speak to your child’s teacher at any time. Please don’t wait to be invited, we are always here for you.
Now that school is fully up and running, I wanted to let you know a little bit about what is happening inside classrooms. When you hand over your children to us in the morning, I am sure you have often wondered, what happens next? You may also have wondered how you, as parents can be sure that your child is receiving the best possible education here at NAISAK. The answer is that myself and other senior leaders regularly drop into classrooms to check on the quality of teaching and learning in every class. For example, this morning I have been busy calling in to see all the new teachers who joined us in August. I am happy to report that those teachers are doing a great job, inspiring your children to love learning and to do their best in school. Jamal (Yr1) was able to tell his teacher that he comes to school “to grow and to learn”. How wonderful to see that even our youngest pupils are able to articulate the reason for being here and I couldn’t have put it better myself.
Our teachers continue to grow and to learn alongside our students. We remain committed to the Professional Development of our staff here at NAISAK. If small problems are seen in classrooms, they can be swiftly addressed through training and additional support for those teachers. In this way, our educational offer here in school will continuously improve. As one teacher mentioned to her class this morning, “mistakes are opportunities for learning”. Nobody in this world is perfect, but all of us can strive to be better tomorrow than we were today. This applies to all of us in the NAISAK community, whether parent, teacher or student. I wish you all a wonderful week of learning together.
