In this photo essay, we highlight some new dimensions to our school. This essay reflects important new additions, including our new Head of School, Mr. Lee Hark. “The first days of school are about possibility, the year stretches out in front of you… there’s so much energy when people come in and I love that, I want to capitalize on that, and I want that to keep going so it’s not just the first days of school, so that sense of possibility is what people wake up to every morning” said Mr. Hark.
