What an eventful September we have had!
We have welcomed our guardianship students back to the UK and we have been conducting personalised online induction meetings with each child and their family before they arrive in the UK. Each family has been incredibly grateful for the extra time and support our team have given them to help with their questions and queries. Many parents were still unsure about quarantine and testing requirements and felt reassured by the information we gave to them.
Our lovely teachers have once again exceeded our expectations in hosting our students before the start of term. John, studying at The King’s School International, left a lovely letter for his host family - below is a snippet for you!
We also received wonderful news from Kenneth at Queen Ethelburga’s College as he was awarded a Silver Certificate in the Junior Maths Challenge 2021. Kenneth is the youngest student to ever be awarded this prize. We are so very proud of Kenneth and the progress he has made over the last year boarding in the UK! As Kenneth is one of our VIP students, we have had the opportunity to follow his academic success more closely - contact us to know more about the benefits of being on our VIP Guardianship service!
As summer came to a close, we have also been busy checking in with our students to make sure that they have settled well into school.
Angela met Jurus and discovered a lot of things about his life as a boarder in the UK. For example, he auditioned to play bugle in the military band at his school! How impressive! Though we are not meeting students face to face yet, virtual meetings are taking place and they are an invaluable opportunity to assess our students’ wellbeing at a time of big change in their lives.
And if you were already thinking that that was a busy couple of months, September was not over yet! The first exeat of the academic year saw students meeting their host families for the first time or returning to them after the summer break. We are looking forward to knowing how the weekend went for all of our students, but in the meantime enjoy a photo of Leo’s leisure time with his host family Teresa!
Our Guardianship team take individual interest in every student in our care, and our commitment to the safety, happiness and progress of our students is exceptional.
