We were pleased to welcome new Admissions Manager Ms Sarah Bowler into the school team this week. A long term Hong Konger, and based just around the corner in Clearwater Bay, she is thoroughly looking forward to meeting you all. Please join me in ensuring a very warm welcome, during a rather chilly winter season.

The cold certainly didn’t stop Year 1 this week, as they made the journey up to Sai Kung Country Park on Wednesday for the first in a series of hikes due to take place this term. Huge thanks to the teaching team and supporting parents for delivering such a wonderful opportunity. Everyone was thrilled by the maturity and diligence shown by children as they undertook a search for a very well known story character known to inhabit the deep dark wood!

Having hosted our strategic team this afternoon I now look forward to a return to the UK and Shropshire next week where I will be interviewing a collection of enormously talented teachers all keen to join our team here in Hong Kong. I very much look forward to hearing from each, before returning to Hong Kong to meet with candidates based within Asia.

A very warm welcome back to you all – I do hope that you enjoyed a restful break. We’ve enjoyed a wonderful start to our second term of the year, particularly given the arrival of a significant group of new students and families. With relationships now in bloom, we look forward to learning more about one another over the coming weeks.

We will be hosting a special tour for prospective families tomorrow, exactly one week before I depart Hong Kong for our first round of recruitment ahead of our second academic year. While my week in the UK will be extremely busy, I thoroughly enjoy the very special privilege of meeting and carefully selecting academic staff. We have an excellent shortlist of candidates prepared, all excited about the prospect of joining the Shrewsbury family.

Having now returned to Hong Kong, I am very much looking forward to the return of academic staff on Monday for a training day focusing upon the delivery of our whole school phonics programme. Students return on Tuesday and will bring with them tales of adventure and renewed aspiration. The first half of term will be brief, with Chinese New Year falling within the first week of February, but there is already so much to look forward to.

I do hope you have enjoyed a restful break with family and friends. Many of us will now be tentatively looking toward the start of our second term together. In just over a week, we resume – refreshed and renewed, expectations reset and aspirations heightened. For academic staff, term will begin with a shared day of professional development connected to the delivery of our phonics programme. Students will return on Tuesday 8th January.

I write to you this week from a very chilly London, where I will be spending the next few days before heading up to Cheltenham for the following week or so. Many of our teachers have also chosen to head home for Christmas and I know that they will enjoy the chance to share news of their latest adventure with friends and family. Students will also be off exploring, now counting down the days until Christmas morning - I do hope that families are enjoying the festive break. Meanwhile, in our absence, it is important to remember the many members of the school operational team that will be hard at work processing applications and preparing the campus for the new calendar year. To you all, very best wishes and Merry Christmas!
