We have been back for a week now, with the students. But in Boarding, we have been preparing the House for the better part of August to get things ready, and with a full house, there is a lot to organise!
A big welcome to our new supervisor, Miss Carmen Ryan. Miss Ryan comes from Australia (where all the good Boarding people seem to come from). She has been involved in Boarding for a number of years, starting out as a Boarder in Year 8, and never really leaving.
Miss Ryan comes from Green Hills Station in North Queensland, and, in a strange coincidence there is some link to Miss Claudia Holmes, who has taken up the position of Director of Boarding at Green Hills Academy in Rwanda. We thank Miss Holmes for her valuable contribution to her two years in Boarding, and welcome Miss Ryan.
Miss Ryan has an educational background in Social Studies and English, so she will complement my areas in Maths and Science. She will also assume responsibility for the Middle School students, working with Division III as well as focusing on the needs of the girls in the Boarding House.
