We enjoyed another successful evening in school last week, supporting parents of IB and potential IB students at our Succeeding at IB evening. Those attending heard about the philosophy and rationale behind the IB along with top tips on how to succeed from the start. Organisation of the students as well as role modelling from the parents was a key theme. If we are expecting children to read more, as adults, how much do we model that behaviour to our children? It certainly got me thinking about my children at home. I now sit and complete my homework whilst they complete theirs. The ‘succeeding at’ evenings will come to a close this week with our support for IGCSE parents on Wednesday.
Students are looking forward to the KS3 assembly this week. The theme in recent weeks has been one of celebration and opportunity. As a school, we keenly emphasise our links with the UN, MIT and Julliard. Another of our strengths is the local links we have. Regatta Sailing Academy spoke to students last week and demonstrated how to sail a boat with a real boat in the Sports Hall! Havanna Music Events put on a wonderful performance in assembly on Sunday. They showcased a number of different instruments, how they worked and how students can learn to play them.
Tutors of the class are looking forward to meeting parents at our extended tutor time and school in action next Tuesday. There will be a Global Campus task for parents to observe the global goal priorities in school this year. The Student Council will be identifying how we as a school can support the global goals.
I look forward to seeing you this week.
