Dear Students, Parents and Community Members:
I have benefited from an enriching learning experience at the annual conference of the Association for the Advancement of International Education's (AAIE). The title of the conference was, "Being on Time for the Future'. Together with school leaders from across the globe, we explored 9 themes focused on key leadership challenges in international schools. In addition to the conference I also visited Stanford's d.school. I enjoyed a tour of the school and learned more about the exciting programs and experiments on offer. We were also able to discuss and begin to plan the Design Thinking project we shall undertake at PSI. My visit with the Admissions Counsellor for Stanford University was also useful. She was interested in learning more about PSI and in the interests and aspirations of our students.
Next week, as we head towards our week-long break (18 - 22 February), we shall host our second Core Values parent session. This will take place on 13 February 2019 from 17:30 - 19:00, in PSI's Auditorium. Our Board Chair, Alex Munteanu, our PTA President, Inna Zhurzhii and I will facilitate this inclusive workshop aimed at uncovering our parent body's views and perspectives on the Core Values that define and drive everything we do at PSl. It isn't too late to sign up. Please join us for an evening of conversation and reflection, World Café style. Please sign up here.
