Mrs Noble, Mr Mountain and Mrs Temple from the International Department would like to wish you all a very warm welcome back.
Firstly we would like to commend Jerry Chen and Elliot Kwok who did extremely well in their exams last year. This year we have a total 37 international students with 11 new boys hailing from Austria, China, Thailand, Hong Kong and Korea. We had a wonderful induction day and the new boys cooked a bbq lunch for the teachers.
Jiro Chen and Nathan Scott are our two international prefects this year and they have already started organising the term 1 international social. Well done boys, a great start to the year.
Welcome to our new students. (See below)
All the best for 2017, happy Chinese New Year and god bless.
