Welcome Back To School!

Welcome to the start of the 2016-17 academic year. For many of our students this was their very first week in The British School of Guangzhou but I am pleased to note that teachers and teaching assistants have quickly made them feel part of our school community.

Although we are now the largest of the international schools in Guangzhou, I am proud to say that we continue to promote the ‘love of learning' and core values that have helped to create such a positive learning environment.

I am pleased to note that our new Head of Secondary, Mr. Garry Russell, has obviously enjoyed his first week. Mr. Russell joined us from Regents School, one of the most successful of the NAE schools in SE Asia, where he was Head of Secondary. I know that Mr. Russell is excited by the challenges ahead and I am looking forward to seeing him settle into his new role. 

At BSG we upgrade facilities every summer, and this year has been no exception. I cannot thank the facilities team enough for their commitment in ensuring that we were ready for our first day. The new Primary canteen is extremely popular and includes an indoor coffee shop that provides parents with an area to wait when they are in school.  Please note that a number of projects will be completed this term; including the Primary library, KS2 football field and new Primary playground.

I am pleased to announce that over the summer, we received confirmation from the Council of International Schools that our school had been successfully accredited. Their report included an impressive number of commendations about our staff, parents, students and school, as well as highlighting areas to improve.  We look forward to sharing the details with parents and will be using their report to help identify priorities for our new school development plan.

I would encourage all new parents to take the time to read the community charter and to get to know our core values by checking out the 'parent essentials' part of the website. We will be promoting the expectations and values of our school, with your children, on a daily basis and appreciate your support in ensuring that the importance of these expectations and values are fully understood.

I am certainly looking forward to the challenges of the year ahead and am also looking forward to getting to know new students and parents. As always you are welcome to drop by and say hello whenever you are in school. We really do value your involvement and I would encourage all parents to offer their support to the various parental support groups that are in place.

Yours sincerely,

Mark Thomas
