Wow! You have made it! You are a member of the Academy family now! This truly means the first step towards following your dreams and achieving your goals. And since for the next 7 years you are going to be part of this school, we heartily wish that you absorb the best knowledge and experience from here.
This is an important and challenging year for you. The transition from the Elementary school to the Academy and having to master the English language will surely make this year a little bumpy. But, let me assure you that if you put the effort in, you will get the result you want. Embrace the challenge, set your goals high, and don’t stop until you get there. It is also important to invest in friendships. You need to appreciate that friendships need time, attention and trust if they are to survive.
I encourage you to take part in extracurricular activities, sports, charity events and become members of the clubs that seem interesting to you. Many wonderful things happen during these events and it’s a very good opportunity to socialise, learn and help others. Highlights of this year for you are the Brotherhood and Valentine’s party, the Sports Day and of course Weir Camp in the summer!
Here at the Academy you will soon find out that self-discipline, altruism and respect for peers, teachers, the environment and the community are key features of the Academy student life. I am sure you will fit in perfectly.
I want to reassure you that your teachers, mentors, older students and I are there to make sure your academic and social life at the Academy are as smooth as possible. Enjoy the ride!
