What a mixture of emotions there are for everyone involved when a new School term begins. Happiness – for many children and staff, this time will be a great pleasure. Being back with friends and colleagues who they may not have seen for several weeks. The opportunity to share stories of the summer holidays and what you have been doing. Relief – for busy working parents who do not to have to worry now about summer holiday clubs and child care whilst juggling the family activities with work commitments. Nervousness – for those about to join a new school. It could be quite an anxious time in wondering how quickly they will make new friends and get settled in. Pride – for those who have achieved great results in recent examinations, and for those who have made that possible.
In all our Laude Schools across Spain, the welcoming back that our pupils will receive will certainly be as warm the recent weather! In many of our schools there will be great excitement as we introduce new teachers and even new Heads to the children and their parents. Some will have fantastic new facilities and developments of the school buildings to explore and enjoy, as considerable investments have been made in a number of our schools to enhance the learning experience for the whole school community.
At Laude (The Lady Elizabeth School) – the new Secondary School campus will open its doors for the first time to over 500 senior pupils where they will be greeted by their new Head of School, Mr Chris Akin, who has just arrived in the area from Canada. The long-awaited, stunning school buildings stand waiting for the teachers and children to fill them – a place where they can thrive within an inspiring new learning enrvironment. However, wonderful buildings only become a school once those teachers and children arrive, settle in and begin their learning journey together. This is at the heart and soul of a Laude School.
We look forward to your children being part of this exciting new chapter as a new school year begins; to helping them to grow, to get better at what they do and to have a real sense of achievement through good struggle which will enable them to reach their goals and true potential.
