Message from the Head of School
The academic year 2019-2020 was a rollercoaster of a year and it is with much pride that I look back at our collective achievements, our resilience and our courage to be a caring and collaborative community in the face of immense challenges, uncertainty and loss.
Here are some of my 2019-2020 highlights. As a School, we:
- Helped UNICEF celebrate 30 years of the Rights of the Child Convention
- Welcomed the joint visiting Accreditation Team from the Council of International Schools, Western Association of Schools and Colleges and the International Baccalaureate Organisation to our community.
- Hosted our first Virtual Tech Conference (VTC) which was attended for free by educators across the globe
- Launched our new UNIS Impact Fund, designed to support student dreams for a better world.
As COVID-19 took hold, what started as a time of postponement, cancellation and closure, quickly became a time of challenging working conditions and real fear for the safety of our families and friends. A time when planning for any kind of future involved multiple scenarios to successfully face such unprecedented ‘unknown’. But this was also a time when we saw our students, teachers and parents come together to support student learning from home. We thank parents for their incredible resilience during this time. Thank you for trusting us with what is most precious to you - your children - and we believe the data below strongly supports our mission to deliver excellent learning, community, responsibility.
