Dear SIA Community,

I hope this week’s letter finds you well and ready for a great weekend. It has been a delightful week here at SIA, and I would like to take a moment to express my heartfelt gratitude to all the parents who actively participated in various activities, contributing to the vibrant atmosphere around school. A special thank you goes out to those parents who dedicated their time to support reading, attend celebration assemblies, and joined our HPL workshop. Your presence and involvement are invaluable, and they play a crucial role in fostering a strong sense of community within SIA, which as you know is something we aim for here at SIA.

The HPL philosophy, along with the Values, Attitudes, and Attributes (VAAs) and the Advanced Performance characteristics (ACPs), is integral to our educational approach. It is heartening to see the commitment of both parents, teachers and learners to this philosophy. Working collaboratively in partnership creates a synergy between home and school enhancing the overall learning experience and significantly contributes to positive outcomes. I urge the whole community to spend time to learning about HPL as we are all learning and growing in this wonderful community. I would like to thank my leadership team and our HPL lead, Ms. Heather, for organising and delivering the workshop which from the feedback I received was very informative.

I would like to highlight a particularly powerful and touching meeting I had with a group of parents this week. These parents shared their observations of the impact of HPL on their children, highlighting moments where they witnessed increased empathy displayed by their children at home. Such feedback is invaluable and reinforces the positive influence that our shared commitment to HPL is having on the holistic development of our learners. One particularly heartwarming moment was hearing parents describe how their children actively talk about and demonstrate empathy in their daily lives. It is moments like these that affirm the significance of our collective efforts in shaping not just academic success but also the character and values of our learners – Empathy, learning and leadership at the heart of what we do.

Our weekly ‘I in kind’ activity added an extra layer of joy to the week. The enthusiasm and creativity displayed by our learners in sharing their thoughts and experiences was inspiring as always. Let’s take a moment to celebrate the voices of our learners, please click here to watch.

Thank you once again for your ongoing support and commitment to creating a nurturing and enriching environment. Together, as a united SIA community, we are making a lasting impact on the lives of our learners – ‘Life Ready’

Wishing you all a wonderful weekend and looking forward to more collaborative moments ahead.
