With a vibrant Chinese New Year celebration now behind us, we have enjoyed a wonderful start to the second half of our second term. Students now back on campus for classes each morning, corridors resonate once more.

Increasingly regular attendance has inspired a series of engagements commonly characterised by an impressive level of focus and determination - learning spaces around the school have been abuzz with activity. Long may it continue.

A meeting with the School Management Committee this week leads us neatly towards a second meeting of the year with the Board of Governors, scheduled to take place later this term. Given the incredible changes to routine observed over the last four months, we have plenty to discuss.

A few days on campus this week provided the opportunity to reflect, reengage with a set of emerging strategic priorities and finalise preparation for an upcoming meeting with our Board of Governors. 

On Monday, we begin a new phase of life on campus. Now able to host larger groups of students on a more regular basis, teachers will be keen to make the most of our time together. With a regional vaccination programme now on the way, we very much hope that a positive trajectory is now fixed for the medium term.

Next week will also feature the regular meeting of the School Management Committee.

A bright and vibrant three days brought the first half of our second term to a close - and is important to recognise the contribution made by the Chinese language team in particular as we mark the onset of the Year of the Ox.

With guidance from the Education Bureau now in place, we can look forward to the return of larger groups of students on campus on Monday 22nd February. Mindful of the ever-changing circumstances, we will continue to monitor the situation closely over the mid-term break.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a happy and prosperous new year:

Kung Hei Fat Choi - 恭喜发财 !

Preparation for Chinese New Year now in full swing, we have much to look forward to next week and the final few days of the first half of our second term. With our bus driver now out of hospital and seemingly on track to making a full recover following his Covid-19 diagnosis earlier this month, there are many reasons for good cheer as we enter the year of the Ox.

Following the flurry of news this week, parents will be keen to learn more about our schedule for resumption on return from the mid-term break. While continually alert to the periodic release of statements over the past 48 hours, it is important to recognise that we have not yet received formal confirmation of expectations from the Education Bureau. We remain committed however to working towards the very best possible position on behalf of all community members and will make direct contact at the earliest opportunity.

I remain deeply grateful: for the time we have enjoyed together so far this year, for the ever decreasing volume of cases observed in the region, and for the continued support of students, parents and staff.

The inaugural meeting of Heads for a first Shrewsbury School International Seminar proved one of many highlights this week, with a spectacular mathematics workshop, a collection of evening interviews with prospective teaching candidates, and a series of meetings with mobility professionals from Manulife, Goldman Sachs and Société Générale all supporting a highly productive period. 

The start of February will lead us neatly towards Chinese New Year and anticipation is building for a celebratory assembly scheduled for broadcast on Wednesday 10th. With filming already underway, we have high hopes for a vibrant and colourful celebration. 

The resumption of bus services next week will be rightly celebrated, but our thoughts remain with the member of the bus team recently diagnosed with Covid-19 on their continued journey of recovery.
