We hope you enjoyed a fabulous family time over the summer break.  It’s great to see so many fresh smiling faces ready to launch into another productive and enriching year.

Welcome our new students and families.  We look forward to getting to know you and we hope you feel a strong supportive culture as you get to know our school community.  Tomorrow we welcome our new receptions for their first big day of school.

It is big year of change for our staff.  Barb Williams (Japan) and Greg Alksne (China) have settled into their new roles very well.  Nikki Edwards is progressing well and her baby is due in a few weeks.  Jude Wood is enjoying the start of a big year on leave; travelling and spending time with the grandchildren.  Jeff McCarthy has decided that he is ready for a more leisurely lifestyle and he will be on leave for the year too.  Jo Cole will be on leave for this term.  We wish her well with her family commitments.
