It has been wonderful welcoming our students back this week and learning of their adventures and travels. We were very pleased to be able to re-open our main entrance for the start of Term and we are very excited to be using our new reception from this coming Wednesday. The new classrooms will begin to be occupied during the coming month, with an official opening to follow soon after.
I had the opportunity during the break to attend a Heads of School conference which was held for schools with a similar foundation, education and ethos to John Colet School. Schools from Australia, Ireland, England, Trinidad, South Africa and New Zealand were in attendance. While the schools varied widely in structure there was a common thread throughout that reaffirmed the uniqueness of our program and the education we provide our children. It was also an ideal occasion to share best practice and ways in which our schools can continue to develop.
