Consolidating our Reputation on the World Stage
Having just been named as the International School of the Year, it is now clear, more than ever, that Branksome Hall Asia is a pre-eminent school on the world stage.
Our Strategy Team has been approached by leading education groups such as Pearson International, the World Education Services, and the Council of International Schools to present and share our expertise with them. As an educator, this is such a humbling honor and indicator that we have truly become an internationally-recognized learning community.
We do not plan, however, to sit back on our laurels. The good work of Branksome Hall Asia continues in house as we further develop our pedagogy and programs. Recently, we offered the ‘Lunar Series,’ an academic camp that took place over the Lunar New Year break. It was an exciting learning experience for our Junior School students and featured a variety of learning enrichment activities in a face-to face learning environment. Encouraged by the participation of our students and positive feedback, other learning programs and opportunities are in the planning stages.
Last week, the faculty were engaged in Professional Development training to advance one of this year’s school goals - improving student oracy in English. Our goal is to inspire our students by engaging them with learning experiences focused on advancing their spoken English skills within the context of the rigorous IB subject material.
Our Grade 12 girls have recently completed their DP Mock exams and we are so proud of them. Our teachers outlined examination expectations and provided revision sessions to support the girls to reach their potential. The students performed admirably and showed their resilience as young learners and leaders.
I am looking forward to sharing more about upcoming projects and initiatives with you over the coming months and are so happy that we can return to full student attendance on campus starting on Monday.
