At the end of a heavily disrupted week, I write only to wish our families and students a safe and comfortable weekend. School staff look forward to returning to normal operation at the earliest possible opportunity.

In the meantime, we continue to monitor the situation closely and remain in contact with parents regarding academic provision through our virtual learning environment.

I have spent the vast majority of my time this week with students - and what a pleasure it has been. Committed, diligent and extraordinarily keen to learn, they made a particularly positive impression on our friends at Ex Cathedra, who brought their usual sparkle to sessions for children across the school.

I would like to take this opportunity to thank Rob, Ruairi and Sally for inspiring such joy and acting to support our wider commitment to music and the performing arts. The benefits of this particular investment were in full display during our assembly this afternoon, as Year 2 took to the stage with great poise and enormous charm.

Next week, we can look forward to the visit of Ms Debbie Brown, Assistant Principal of the Prep School at Shrewsbury International School Bangkok, a coffee morning with Class Representatives and our second class-led assembly in succession.

The successful visit of the Board of Governors and the hosting of a fabulous evening event for representative parents marked the end of another wonderful and event-packed week here at Shrewsbury.

Historian, Mr Bill Lake, worked with a selection of students in Key Stage 2 on the role played by troops located in Hong Kong during World War 2; Director of Mills International Preschool, Deirdre McCloskey, dropped in to discuss partnership opportunities; and representatives from Top Schools, Santa Fe, OEP Asia and ITS Education Asia gathered for an open discussion on the subject of the Greater Bay Area.

I look forward to connecting with partners and friends at the British Chamber next week during our regular Education Committee meeting, while parents of children in 2LG can look forward to the return of class assembly performances!

The school campus has been eerily quiet this week. What fun it will be to catch up with teaching staff on Monday before we welcome students back in on Tuesday for the start of the second half of term.

Our first week back will feature the arrival of the Board of Governors, who will meet on Thursday morning before hosting the Shrewsbury Parents' Association for supper.

Families will also be thrilled to hear news of the imminent return of our good friends at Ex-Cathedra on the 4th and 5th November.

We have enjoyed a fabulous end to our first half term - a Solo Recital Concert and an Athletics Meet drew great adulation from Shrewsbury families, and rightly so. Specialist teams hosted with aplomb and students rose to the occasion magnificently. An active few days, but all absolutely joyous.

The week concluded with a first update on House Points. Chen House have taken an early lead with Wu House and Lo House hot on their heels. The House Cup will not be awarded until June however, so there is still plenty to play for.

Next week, families can look forward to a mid-term break. I do hope that it brings an opportunity to rest, to recuperate and to revel in the relationships we share away from school. We look forward to bringing our community together once more on Tuesday 29th October.
