Thank you to all the parents and teachers who attended Academic Review day. I have received a lot of positive feedback and ideas to improve the experience for everybody which we will take in to account when planning this event next year.
This morning I attended the first Student Council meeting since the election of our Chairperson, Marin Magre. The secretary and treasurer were elected and I am pleased to announce that Michal Majcherczak is the new treasurer and Filipa Campos is the new secretary with Cam Tu Hoang as assistant secretary. The student council set to work immediately with plans for a survey regarding student food preferences in the canteen. The students feel their views need to be represented when food supplied for them is being planned. They also decided on a theme for the Biannual Student Council Ball which will take place on 23 January 2015. The theme this time is ‘The James Bond Ball.’ Lastly they discussed the Global Classroom Challenge open to all schools in the Nord Anglia Group. They have some very inspired, creative and interesting ideas which we will hear more about in the coming weeks. The challenge this year is based on the Rights of the Child, a subject very close to us all working at an international school.
Dates to remember:
Monday 10 November Staff training day
Tuesday 11 November –Public Holiday
Wednesday 12 November-Normal lessons resume.
Rememberance day is Independence Day in Poland
11 November is marked in Poland as a special day. In many countries, it is remembered as the day World War 1 ended and the treaty of Versailles was signed. For Poland this meant independence for the first time in many years. There are commemorative celebrations in the city centre on Tuesday and there have been demonstrations too in recent years. Shops and services will be closed on this day.
Some of our Year 13 students have begun to receive offers form Universities in the UK already! We are busy helping those who have applied to Oxford and Cambridge Universities and to medical schools for eagerly anticipated invitation to interviews. Many thanks to Mrs Blanchard for her work on this and to teachers willing to give up their time in order to help our students. I look forward to reporting positive outcomes for all of our applicants.
