What a fast-paced three weeks we have had since school started. I can confidently say that we have a wonderful group of boarding students this year. The new children have settled in well and understand the routines and procedures at boarding. Please always feel free to contact me should you have any questions or concerns.
We have had some great activities hosted by staff over the course of the last few weeks. We have had pancake making, board games evening, General knowledge quizzes, movie night, and even a Zumba dance class. Our activities are not compulsory, and we encourage students to participate in at least one activity per weekend.
I will share photos with you as discussed at orientation, Please bear in mind that we do try to get photos of all students, but it might be a case of a student not attending a certain activity or not wanting their photo taken. These activities are important in nurturing emotional intelligence and expose students to a wide variety of different skills from communication, team building, etc. These skills are all valuable in college and business. We also continue to emphasize the importance of academics and study sessions while maintaining an active life. I have told students that if they would like a tutor for a specific subject they should speak to me, and I can arrange it privately.
I will share another report and photos in two weeks. Hope you enjoy it.
