Dear Students, Parents and Carers,
It is with great sadness that we learned today of the loss of Her Majesty, Queen Elizabeth II. Following a long life of duty and service, including 70 years as monarch, she will be missed by many. As a patron of many charitable organisations, she spent much time recognising the contributions of others for their community work.
The Queen visited Nepal in 1961 and 1986 and was a proud supporter of The Gurkha Welfare Trust. As a leader on the world stage, she believed people and nations were stronger as communities and was an advocate for forgiveness and reconciliation. The UK and the Commonwealth will mourn the loss of a part of their history and culture, as well as a leader who ruled with grace and honour.
As a mark of respect, there will be a book of condolence at the guardhouse next week so that parents, visitors and local community members can send their messages to the Royal Family.
Thank you to everyone who wished us well with our BSO (British Schools Overseas) inspection. The inspection team went into over 50 lessons, spoke with a great number of people and looked at the students’ outcomes. They will send us a report which outlines our strengths and also gives some recommendations, however we are unlikely to receive this until some time in October at the earliest.
