As Deputy Head of Senior School, I should like to welcome you to the new academic year at MIGS. The MIGS family sadly bade farewell to Mr Guy Cassarchis at the end of last year but look forward to welcoming Mr Stephen West as Principal and Head of Senior School in the next
At MIGS we work hard to create an environment where students will be happy, grow in self-confidence, thrive academically, and make the most of the many opportunities we offer. We pride ourselves in the pursuit of excellence both inside and out of the classroom, and on encouraging students to develop their talents and discover new interests. We want our students to evince both at School and in their lives in the local community our Vision of Discovering Potential, Learning to Care and Respecting Differences.
We will continue to strive to offer best practices in 21 st century teaching and learning. We never forget two things. Firstly, that a successful school relies on a close partnership among teachers, students and parents. Secondly, that there is much more to education than just academic success. It is about learning to live with others; it is about preparation for the world outside of MIGS.
Above all, in a rapidly changing world, it is about showing students the core values that will help them lead happy, fulfilling lives. A website can only show you so much. What really matters in any community are the people and the relationships they forge. The MIGS community is a small, welcoming family and I urge you to come to the School and to see and feel that for yourselves. In this way you will be able to appreciate the true value and benefits of a MIGS education.
In conclusion, I wish you all a wonderful school year. If I can be of any assistance, please do not hesitate to contact me.
Deputy Head of Senior School
