From the Director
Hope everyone had a good break and got some relaxation with family and friends, and hopefully some outdoor time.
Update on Strategy
The conversation held in the Protea Room just before the break was very well attended and a great conversation was had with parents, following a brief presentation.
If you missed it, here is the Strategy Slide Presentation.
One of the four domains in our strategy is the Environment and it is in this area that we seek help from parents and the wider community. Mark James is leading the Green Campus initiative as part of the environment domain with a group of enthusiastic teachers. Our next step is to involve students, who we would like to see driving projects in this area. Parent expertise is critical too! Here is the Environment's Team working document that Mark presented to the parents. Green Campus Group Slides
This too sparked a lot of conversation about how we need to prepare our students in our world of exponential change.

And to ponder:
A Traditional Gaelic Poem
May the road rise up to meet you.
May the wind be always at your back.
May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields
until we meet again…
With kind regards,
Dr. Oli Tooher-Hancock
