From The Principal’s Desk, 15th August 2019
At Blouberg International we are privileged to have teachers who have a vested interest in our school and the community. Our teachers do not focus solely on the classes they teach, but have innovative ideas about improving our school. They are passionate about seeing their students, and our larger school community, grow and develop. Their ideas and plans are always welcomed by management as it is indicative of their commitment to our school.
I have decided to introduce a Leadership Panel where, once a month, key stakeholders will brainstorm a SWOT analysis (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats analysis) for the school. It is through this collaborative process that we intend to identify the changes that need to take place on a regular basis to avoid stagnation.
I am happy to announce that the second jungle gym for our Key Stage 1 and 2 students is almost complete. I know they are awaiting it eagerly and I am sure it will bring them a lot of enjoyment.
This week we received letters of motivation from our Year 11 students in which they declared their interest in serving on the Student Representative Council (SRC) in 2020. Our students’ passion for their school was evident in these letters and we are looking forward to the finalisation of the voting process.
With only a few weeks left before our Year 10 and 12 students begin their final examinations, emotions are running high and we are doing our utmost to support their academic and emotional needs during this challenging time.
Please remember that we have another exciting Interactive Curriculum Morning happening this Saturday, 17th August. I hope many of our parents will attend, as I am certain it will be another successful and informative morning.
Next week we celebrate Book Week, as well as offer support to the students involved in the West Coast Song Festival.
I wish you all a wonderful weekend.
