The Week Without is an annual event when we challenge students and teachers to give up a luxury for the week to raise both funds for Year 12's Service Week CAS Projects and awareness of the lives of those less fortunate than ourselves. Students will have brought home sponsorship forms on Friday with copies also emailed to parents just in case… We will include more details of the different Year 12 Service Week CAS Projects in a future Newsletter.
With the VEX Robotics World Championships, the Year 6 Transition Day, the What Makes a Great St Andrews Community? Monthly theme, the MIT STEAM Launch, Grease, the Childrens’ Books project and the Week Without, last week really was a week that highlights the number of opportunities that students have to both “be inspired” and “to be the best they can be” in so many different ways. And as you can see from the excerpt of the Calendar below there are many more of these taking place between now and half-term.
As well as all of that, this week we have a group of visitors from the Education Development Trust, the Thai Ministry of Education ONESQA and Nord Anglia Education who will be inspecting the school for our International School Quality Mark/British Schools Overseas Inspection.
As I wrote last week, we were very pleased to be judged to be Outstanding both overall and for every Standard individually when a similar Inspection Team visited three years ago, and we are really looking forward to showing our visitors that we are an even better school three years later. We want to “Be the best we can be” as a school too...
Join us for a coffee morning on Friday 18 May at the Jo Adamson Theatre for a discussion of the definition of success presented by Natalie Glebova and Dr Patama Mokaves Dumas.
