June 2021
Dear Colleagues,

The academic year 2020-2021 is coming to an end, finally ! As difficult as it was, lots of triumphs and tribulations emerged in the education system. We surmounted an enormous amount of challenges. One can say the thoughts of these challenges in regular times would have been inconceivable and insurmountable is more common. We accomplished what we thought would be impossible.

To reflect on this year's trials and tribulations, Covid-19 took the education world by surprise, amongst others. Against all odds, we survived, and we came out stronger as educators. We stood by our students, and we took charge. At the same time, we were managing our personal lives and our fears from simple online connections to working entirely online. I am very proud to say we don't only teach resilience, but we modelled it. We were learning while teaching simultaneously. We outdid ourselves.

With the summer around the corner, the smell of BBQs in the parks and backyards, a new normal is on its way. Seeing family members, colleagues and friends face to face will be most cherished and welcomed.

Thank you for being a loyal reader.  We will be looking forward to keeping you informed about any curriculum news and updates next September !

Please rest and enjoy your summer with all your loved ones.

See you in September,

Micheline Ammar
