Working furtively towards the overarching ambitions outlined within our three-year Strategic Plan, my focus this week has been split between Secondary School Selection, safeguarding of students and active committee membership at the British Chamber. 

The school team now look forward to joining the International Schools Fair hosted by the South China Morning Post tomorrow. Next week will also bring a visit from newly appointed Principal at Shrewsbury School in Guangzhou, Ms Carlien Shelley and, of course, our very first class led assembly of the year - good luck Y6AS!

Fresh from a delightfully informative Curriculum Evening led by Key Stage 1 colleagues, I now look forward to a particularly varied schedule next week.

With the safety of children on campus a continuing focus for the school team, we have the great pleasure of welcoming long standing connection and friend of the school Mr Tim Gerrish OBE to Hong Kong on Monday. Tim will be speaking to various members of the community as part of a comprehensive safeguarding audit.

I also look forward to speaking to parents of Year 4 students on Wednesday, as we introduce our Secondary School Selection programme and consider their upcoming residential trip, and will head off to meet with the British Chamber's Education Committee in Central on Thursday morning.

All of which leads me neatly to the SCMP International Schools Festival on Saturday, where I will be speaking on the subject of well-being.

An inclement start to the week didn't dampen spirits any, as we welcomed a huge audience of parents into the Dining Hall on Monday morning. The opportunity for connection was hosted by the Shrewsbury Parents' Association, who met again on Thursday morning to continue to develop plans for a growing calendar of events.

I must also take the opportunity to thank our wonderful Early Years team for their delivery of such thoughtfully considered information to parents this afternoon at our first curriculum evening. 

Following an extremely well attended tour on Wednesday, I will be hosting another collection of prospective families on campus tomorrow, while our Admissions team represent the school at the Standard Kindergarten Fair in Mong Kok.

Our first full week together has proven enormously successful. Specialist sessions now in full swing, the Aquatics Centre, Recital Hall and Sports Hall have seen an impressive range of activity, and the Dining Hall abuzz with news of the day gone by.

I now look forward to meeting with parents over coffee on Monday morning during an event designed to connect founding families with our newest arrivals. And our growth looks set to continue, with two heavily subscribed campus tours scheduled for next week, ahead of the Standard Kindergarten Fair on Saturday.

It’s been such a pleasure to welcome students back onto campus this week – and it’s been a real success. We’ve made a host of new friends, settled quickly into routine and look smarter than ever with a fresh new uniform in Key Stage 1.

The end of our first week was marked by an assembly on the theme of Communication - as we continue to grow we will need to be increasingly considerate of those around us and the relationships we share.

Bigger, bolder and brighter than ever, our first full week will see the return of our specialist programme. I know that the teachers are raring to go…
