Message from Our Principal

As we come to the end of our fifth week of the current academic year, I would like to highlight some of the amazing ways that our community have worked together to accommodate new routines and ways of working.

On August 31st, our students returned to face a school of designated ‘bubbles’ with specified discrete school entrances and a list of new procedures to navigate. Many were excited to return to school, to see friends and meet new teachers however for some children, this has required perseverance to overcome anxieties.  We have worked hard to make our new routines of hand washing, compliance with mask-wearing and distancing when possible the new normal. The TBS Warsaw community have really been adaptable, flexible and considerate when taking ownership of the mantra of staying safe, staying open and protecting others. . I would like to thank the tremendous support from our families.

Resilience is the theme of our news this week and with this in mind I would like to recognise and celebrate the work of our teachers and teaching assistants. Putting aside their own anxieties, our staff have adapted  to these uncertain times, changing their preferred learning spaces, being creative in their lesson planning and supporting student well-being. They have also embraced the additional challenge of including those students at home, allowing them the chance to access learning at the same time as those who are present. Resilience has certainly been required to ensure we continue to find even more creative ways to engage our learners in these situations.

Our selected articles this week look at resilience from our students' perspective. Ms Sheree Hay explains how our Early Years programme develops an element of risk-taking and a firm belief that its alright to make mistakes in order to build resilience in our young learners. . In the words of Samuel Beckett, ‘Ever tried. Ever failed. No matter. Try again. Fail better’. Read Mrs Joe Shepley-Clarke’s article to find out more. Examples of resilience in Secondary are described by Mr Mark Stimpson as he celebrates the work of Year 8 students in Geography and lastly, Mrs Evelina Mroczkowska discusses the impact on our IB learners and ways they have shown resilience to navigate through a highly demanding curriculum.

Monitoring the situation in Poland and within the school itself is very important as COVID restrictions and advice continues to evolve. Due to the fact that we have now successfully embedded a number of routines, we are feeling confident in gradually adding more elements to our provision. After half-term, we will be recommencing our LEAP programme which will offer a number of interesting clubs for children to sign up for. The clubs offered will be restricted to certain bubbles in order to reduce mixing across our community. I hope that your children will find an activity suitable for them.

I hope you all have a lovely weekend.

Sue Hill
Principal
