Quarter 1 2022

Welcome to the 2022-23 school year!

Welcome back, parents and students! We are so excited to be back in person and are so hopeful that this year will be one in which all of our students thrive. We are proud of our IH/IB programme which is grounded in our learner profile, our mission statement that people with their differences can also be right, and our commitment to a rigorous, internationally-minded education that encourages students to think critically and care for each other.
