What a delight it was to see our new and returning Wellingtonians back on campus. With fresh expectations, pupils were full of excitement as they embarked on their journey into a brand-new academic year.
On the first day of school, pupils gathered together in the Grand Theatre for their first assembly led by Ms. Kathryn Richardson, Principal of Wellington College International Hangzhou. The assembly gave pupils and teachers an opportunity to reflect on the tremendous growth of the College and how strong the community has become over the past two years.
To ensure the transition was smooth pupils participated in a two-hour Orientation session. This provided the opportunity for pupils and teachers to interact with each other through activities and group discussions.
In Primary School, one could see our young pupils expressing their curiosity with smiles on their faces when passing by the classrooms. In Secondary School, teachers expect the senior pupils to become more independent as they prepare for the IGCSEs courses that will commence next year.
At Wellington College International Hangzhou, our highly qualified and carefully selected teaching staff personalise the learning journey for every pupil, fulfil their potential and provide them with every opportunity for success. School activities, which are part of our co-curricular activities programme, will begin this week, providing pupils almost 300 different options to enrich their school lives.
For those who are not able to come back to school, teachers are currently providing eLearning services based on the rich experience they gained during the last academic year. At Wellington, we ensure every pupil has a smooth transition into the College.
