3. How does our ‘be ambitious’ philosophy help our students and staff?
Ambition is what drives high achievement and success. When we are ambitious with everything we do, the students we teach are constantly challenged and achieve beyond expectations. Their ambition gets bigger and their dreams become achievable. This philosophy applies to staff as well; we are ambitious in every aspect of our practice, whether that’s delivering inspiring units and lessons, constantly reflecting and learning about our own practice or seeking professional development to ensure we are providing the best for the children in our care.
4. Do you have a particular highlight or favourite memory from your time here?
This is not a specific memory, but reflecting on the years spent at BSG, how can International Day not be up there. Every year, a huge community come together to celebrate all that’s amazing about the international setting we teach in. Our parents, children and staff all put in a huge amount of effort to make the day work and every year it does not disappoint.
5. What do you do with your spare time in Guangzhou?
In my spare time I love spending quality time with my friends and family. Last year my wife and I had a baby girl in Guangzhou and it’s great to get home and spend evenings out and about exploring the city, or even just playing with toys and playdough at home. We also have our dogs which keep us busy; we often take long walks around Guangzhou with them. Aside from this, I try to keep healthy by running and I love cooking (and eating) delicious food.
