Dear students and parents,
It has certainly been a challenging week for many of us, and certainly none more so, than for the family and friends of Luba Pristupova Shrestha, who so very sadly, passed away this week. Luba had been a valued colleague and friend to many within our community for over 15 years in her role as a Piano Teacher at our school. Please read some of the tributes and memories of Luba, by some of our students and staff, that encapsulate the tremendous impact Luba had on the lives of those that she came into contact with. Rest in Peace Luba.
The week has seen us move back to online continuous learning and experience news of several confirmed cases of COVID within our community. We have responded swiftly and safely, whilst trying to also accommodate the need for examination students to complete coursework and evidence collating for the summer exams. We are ensuring all safety protocols are in place when a limited number of students are on campus and urge the same when they return back home.
We have a meeting for examination parents at 3:30 pm today and a meeting for all parents at 4:00 pm – please use this link if you would like to attend.
Even though we are all experiencing challenges, it has once again, been tremendously heartening to see how everybody has once again, worked together to overcome these, both on an individual and collective basis. It is also wonderful to see the many positive outcomes; this is highlighted in ‘dramatic’ fashion through our spotlight on the performing arts, in this week’s newsletter. Please take time to read and watch (via the links) the many achievements and talented performances of our students. I think we all need a bit of positivity to end and week and this certainly does the trick!
Please stay safe everyone and have a relaxing week.
