As always with international schools there are many leavers at this time of year and it was nice to say goodbye to the children and families who are moving on in the assembly. We appreciate the contribution of all the children and families to our continued success and wish all TBS leavers the very best for the future. Special thanks goes to the teaching staff who are leaving TBS – Alex Backhouse, Colin Dooley, James Dunwell, Louise Garner, Becky Salmons, Matt Greenwood, Joanna Bevan and James Bevan. They all move on to a variety of new challenges and we wish them well.

Special mention goes to Aliska Tamrakar and Bela Pangeni for their long service to the school. Bela started at the school in 1997 and she has seen many changes in her time as a teaching assistant in both secondary and primary sections of the school. Aliska started in January 2006 and has also had diverse roles including a spell as the laboratory technician before settling back into her usual teaching assistant role. Although Bela and Aliska are moving on to begin exciting new chapters in their lives, we know they will both keep in touch with everyone at TBS.

We welcome the children back to school on Monday 11th August 2014. Once the children are in lessons with their teachers at 8.15, we would like parents, old and new, to join us in the Main Hall for a short introductory meeting. At this meeting we will introduce you to all the Heads of Key Stage, Parent Governors and other key staff, give you the essential basic information about TBS and show you where to find other important information. 

Have a great Summer!
