Head of School Matt Mills was on campus to welcome our teachers to the new academic year. For the first time, he presented to an empty theatre, but he did have a full audience of teachers who joined online through a live stream.
Mr Mills introduced the Academic Leadership Team including Primary Principal Sarah McCormack, Secondary Principal Matt Seddon and Secondary Assistant Principal Luke Jones as well as our new School Manager and Government Liaison Patcharin (Nang) Jingkaojai.
Last year, Mr Mills, leadership and students came together (virtually!) to review our Guiding Statements, some changes were made and those were introduced to teachers today. Mr Mills emphasised the importance of kindness, to others and to ourselves in these trying times. He encouraged teachers to remember the importance of Patana Values as they enter CSL and welcome students new and old.
Teachers spent the rest of the day wth their learning teams in Primary and Secondary, getting everything in order to welcome students back to learning on Wednesday 18th August.
