We've enjoyed a wonderful first full week back on campus and, while our time together has been necessarily restrained, it has been a pleasure to reconnect.
Diligently supported by our cleaning and security teams, the arrival and departure of students has been particularly sensitively managed, before the routine deep-clean begins. While mornings often whizz by, students have proven adept at moving online and continue to delight digitally at home during the afternoon.
It seems only fitting at this particular juncture to highlight the incredible fortitude of our academic team, who have repeatedly risen to the challenges of suspension and deserve all credit for the steady and considered reintroduction of students. Most a long way from home, they have given so much and prioritised the needs of others at every turn. I feel extremely fortunate to be able to work alongside such a highly skilled and deeply committed team.
This week also provided an opportunity to reconnect with friends and colleagues in Bangkok who are in the process of exploring resumption themselves. As ever, we stand together in great solidarity.
