I have recently returned from the UK, where Dr Moore and I were busy recruiting teachers to join the BIST teaching team in August. This year, with staff retention at the school at an all time high, we were only looking for two teachers – Maths and Physics – and we were delighted with an outstanding field for both positions. It is increasingly clear that our reputation worldwide is growing ever stronger, and teachers around the world are increasingly keen to come and work at our fantastic school. Dr Moore and I will look forward to sharing with you soon the two stellar appointments we have made, both of which will make these two core faculties even stronger than they are already, and able to deliver even better Learning and Teaching for every student from Y7 to Y13. It was a delight to come back to Bangkok in time to see both the energy and excitement of our Early Years Sports Day, and also yet another wonderful turnout at our Learning and Progress Conversations on both Early Years and Windsor Park campuses – evidence that our parental support, also, continues to go from strength to strength.
