From the Office of the Head of School

 

Dear Parents/Guardians,

 

Welcome to the 2013-2014 school year! I trust that you and your families all enjoyed a wonderful and safe summer break, that you and your children find yourselves well rested, and now are all ready for an exciting new academic year.

 

Principals, Mr. Evan Hunt, Mr. Dan Kerr and Mr. Andrew Powell, shall be sending out their first news bulletins in due course, but I would like to take the opportunity to provide you with few items of news and information as the school undertakes it final preparations for the up-coming start of the school year.

 

New Faculty: Our wonderful new teachers and administrators have all safely arrived and are currently participating in our formal New Faculty Orientation Week. We are fortunate to have such a talented and experienced group joining our superiorly skilled returning faculty. I have no doubt that this forthcoming school year will once again prove to be something very special for all members of the SCIS community.

 

Summer Schools: SCIS-HQ held two very successful summer schools, which began immediately after the close of the last school year in June. Mr. Dan Zimmermann coordinated the Grade 2 – 10 programs, whilst a group of IBDP specialists facilitated our second DP Summer School for our new grade 12 cohort.

 

Building Renovations and Maintenance: Our business manager Mr. Francis Lai has spent the entire summer on campus, facilitating and monitoring the renovation of certain areas of the school, and the maintenance projects of the entire school. These projects included both capital as well as cosmetic aspects, to begin the year with a shiny new campus. Thanks to Mr. Lai and our Operations Team.

 

IB DP Results: Our recently graduated students were very successful with their internationally and externally assessed DP May 2013 exam session. Once again, our school has improved on past results, and our school average is again above the global average. With the maximum score being 45, seven of our seniors achieved above 40, with 43 being the highest. The schools average score for this past group was 34. Further details will soon be published by Ms. Jasmine Koenig, DP Coordinator and HS vice Principal

Of course, it is the students themselves who should be congratulated for their effort in creating their own success, working with their experienced and dedicated teachers.

 

Class Placements: Classroom teacher announcements and class placements will be sent out to all families on the afternoon of Monday, August 12th.  Please kindly do not seek information beforehand, as the process is incredibly challenging and the pedagogic faculty need uninterrupted time to make sure this happens accurately. Please note that school administrators will be fully engaged with their teachers’ right up to that Monday.

 

Lower School New Family Orientation will commence on August 13th with a short introduction in the theatre at 9am. Returning parents are welcome to attend the Open House from 1 – 3pm on that day.

Middle School New Family Orientation will also commence on August 13th with a short introduction in the theatre at 10am. Returning parents are welcome to attend the Open House from 1 – 3pm on that day.

High School New Family Orientation will commence on August 13th with a short introduction in the theatre at 11am. Returning parents are welcome to attend the Open House from 1 – 3pm on that day.

 

PLEASE NOTE: It is vitally important that Returning Families adhere to the afternoon session, as our teachers and administrators will be very busy with our large group of new families. Your support in this matter shall be highly appreciated.
