Welcome back to the 2016-2017 school year. I hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday. It has been great seeing our students' excitement as they explored their new learning spaces for the year. The students have also been busy this week reconnecting with old friends as well as making new ones, truly modelling the IB learner profile attributes of being caring and open-minded.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our highly experienced and talented new staff in the Elementary School.
