It was wonderful to welcome back the children at the start of the week and it was clear that everyone had enjoyed a relaxing break and was eager to begin learning again. The teachers too were very excited about welcoming the children back to school and many classes have begun new topics for the start of the spring term. We also welcomed many new families to Sanlitun this week and I can confidently say that all of our new students have settled in really well and have already made many friends within their classes and year groups. It has been wonderful seeing our existing students supporting new children and helping them to settle into school life.
I have ended the week in Dubai with a group of Principals from our Nord Anglia Education schools and our Education Team, which has been extremely productive in discussing the success stories from our schools, but also how we can further develop them. We will most certainly be involving our parent body in seeking how to further improve our school and ensure our students are enabled to get the best possible primary education in the city. We will be sharing with you how we will do this in the weeks to come.
In the meantime, I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
