Principal’s Message Vol.64 – Apr 2016

Dear Island Christian Academy,
Dia dhaoibh, Hi, Goededag, Hej, Bok!

Welcome back as we begin the last term of this school year! An extra special welcome to those who are new to our school community.

We trust that you had a good break from routine over the Easter holiday – a holiday to remind us of the most momentous event in world history.

Immediately prior to the holiday, we again celebrated the diversity of our family through our “Taste of Culture”. Especial thanks to parents, who provided such a feast of dishes representing so many regions of our world, and who showed such creativity in costuming the children.

Almost immediately upon our return, we held our sports day – another joyful event involving all the children and a substantial number of parents.

This term we welcome Sheri (Mrs Witthoft), who is taking over from mum-to-be Yvette (Mrs Lau) in year 4. Our recruitment of class teachers for the next school year is complete; we look forward to welcoming for 2016-2017 the following: Eleanor—experienced in the British curriculum, Peter—Geography/History specialist with an international teaching background, Dave— a Maths/Science specialist with international and Christian school experience, Jennifer—international and Christian school experience. We are very much blessed to have been able to appoint such experienced international teachers. Current teachers who are at the end of their contracts and are not returning will notify their students in the next few weeks. We will give further information in the next newsletter.

We look forward to all that this final term of learning will bring,

Debbie Middleton
