We’ve enjoyed a great end to the week with our annual Wai Kru celebrations. Arranged beautifully by our Thai Studies department, our children took their opportunity to show their gratitude and respect to their teachers.
We had a fantastic start to the week with a special assembly for the International Day of Peace. We sang together and shared poems to celebrate and inspire peace.
Sandwiched in between, all the City Campus staff team gave our ‘official’ warm welcome to Dr Tim Nuttall as our Group Director of Schools.
Dr Nuttall was the Rector and Executive Head of St Stithians College in Johannesburg – one of South Africa’s top independent schools. Prior to assuming the leadership of St Stithians seven years ago, his 30-year career in South Africa has spanned tertiary and secondary education – as an Associate Professor of History at the University of Natal, a Deputy Head at St Andrew’s College and Head of Somerset College. He has been actively committed to advancing education in South Africa’s new democracy. After attending school and university in South Africa, he was awarded a Rhodes Scholarship to study at the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom.
Tim began working with us in May via digital means. It is wonderful that he is able to be based with us in person in Bangkok for a few months, before he moves to China to open three new Shrewsbury International Schools over the next few years.
We all feel very excited to welcome Dr Nuttall as our Director, and look forward to working with him.
