It is with great pleasure that I write this letter to you as the Head of Enishi International School. It is truly an honor to become a part of the Enishi family and community. Though I am still getting to know our faculty and parents, I can already tell that Enishi is a very special and unique place to be.
Time passes by fast! It’s hard to believe that we are at the end of the first term of this academic year. I would like to take the opportunity to thank our Enishi staff for the outstanding work they do each and every day. Their dedication to their students is remarkable. The success we have experienced since the beginning of the school year owes a great deal to families like yours who continue to support us. I wish you all a restful summer holiday and hope you enjoy this time with your children. I would also like to thank our wonderful students for their great effort in Term 1.
We had quite a few events in Term 1; School Picnic (unfortunately canceled because of the rain), Literacy Week, Parents Morning, Numeracy Week, Opening Ceremony and Parent Teacher Conference (PTC). Those events wouldn’t happen without the dedication and hard work of the event committees, so a special thanks to those committee members as well.
