Dear students and parents,
It is not surprising to see many activities and learning experiences relating to Christmas this week! Christmas, like all celebrations and holidays, are an opportunity to slow down a little, reflect, and take the time to strengthen our relationships with family and friends. I hope you get the opportunity to do these things over the next few weeks and take a rest, especially from the screens that have been dominating our lives during term time.
We have been reflecting on the achievements of our students this week and you can celebrate these with us by watching our end of term assembly. You will also see some of our ‘new’ staff and students reflecting on their first two terms at TBS, along with two fabulous musical performances; one from our students, with an alternative rendition of ‘12 days of Christmas’ and one from our staff with a rendition of ‘It’s beginning to look a lot like Christmas’ – both are great fun and will make you laugh and get you into the Christmas spirit! It is also that time of year when we say goodbye and good luck to our leaving students. You can also watch these 11 students also on the assembly video reflecting on their time at TBS and completing their leavers’ candle ceremony – all of the very best on your new adventures and do remember you will always be a member of the TBS family.
We will be closely monitoring the COVID-19 situation in Kathmandu during the holiday and adapting our plans accordingly. At this stage, we will be looking to run mock examinations and invite students onto campus in limited ways during Term 3. These plans will be communicated with parents during the first week back, which will hopefully commence in week 2. Our current Phase 3 partial return to campus date remains as the 1st February, 2021.
Have a lovely weekend, a lovely break and please stay safe.
