This has been an exciting week where we have been celebrating the evolution of one of our core pillars at GWA: Entrepreneurship, Innovation and Environmentalism. On Tuesday we hosted the official opening of The Hub – our centre for entrepreneurship. On the first floor of the main building this creative space provides a place for students to collaborate and develop ideas and to incubate entrepreneurial concepts.
It is very understandable that parents in our community are concerned about the impact of the Novel Coronavirus. At the school we are following all the protocols set down by the DHA and KHDA. It is easy in these situations to become caught up in hysteria. I would encourage everyone to follow the advice provided by professionals. We will continue to monitor the situation and make decisions for external and overseas trips based on that advice.
It is wonderful to be back at GWA after three weeks recruiting teachers from fairs in Melbourne, Bangkok and London. I was also in Singapore at our sister GWA assisting them with their school improvement plans. We have employed a group of exceptional teachers. What has been really exciting is not only the calibre of the teachers seeking GWA out but their understanding of the programmes and the stature of the school. GWA is really been seen as a ‘player’ on the educational world stage.
