a-Brian_0002webOn the final Friday of last half-term, school was closed to students, but open to staff who had an INSET day. The day began with teams of staff presenting for 5-10 minutes on a topic of educational interest to their colleagues. The quality of the research, preparation and presentations only confirmed what I already knew about the staff at Regent’s International School; your children are in safe and professional hands.

This week we have a team of students bound for Kuala Lumpur for a FOBISIA Maths Competition with Ms Addis and Mr Corr. We wish them well for the competition and also in making the memories upon which a good school experience is built.

On Saturday we had our annual International Day where both students and staff have been involved collaboratively in preparing National, Multinational or Colour Booths, kick-starting our recycling project and other projects involving our various community partners. It really is a whole school and wider community event with all parties working together to make the day successful.

This week, Dr Peter Jones who will be the Head of Secondary from August 2016 will be visiting the school to meet with students and staff to help ensure that a smooth transition takes place prior to his moving to Thailand in August. I am arranging an informal meeting whereby parents are invited to meet Dr Jones on Wednesday 2nd March at 8.10am in the Business Suite meeting room.

Another busy, exciting and learning-filled week as usual.
