It is pleasure to welcome everyone to the 2017-2018 school year, one that I hope will be full of success for everyone. A special welcome to all of our new students and staff joining us for the first time – We are excited to have you here as part of the Aidi family, and look forward to helping you grow and reach your potential!
The new school year is a very special time for both students and staff. For students, after an enjoyable summer break, the new school year is full of intrigue and excitement, as they start a fresh journey with new and exciting things to discover and learn. For all of our Aidi students, I would like to offer you a little piece of advice to help you make the best start possible - start the new school year with confidence, passion and determination! With the right attitude, you’ll discover that success will find you quickly and you’ll be able to accomplish amazing things! As always, your teachers and all the Aidi staff will be here to help and support you every step of the way.
As we head into autumn, and the weather starts to cool, the year 12 students in our Australian WACE program will begin their preparations for their final exams, which are the culmination of many years of hard work and the key to their university futures. Each and every year Aidi’s students produce outstanding, class-leading results in the Y12 WACE exams, and I have the utmost confidence that this year’s Y12 cohort will once again produce astonishing results. From myself and all the staff at Aidi, we wish good luck to each and every one of you!
One of the highlights of my work here at Aidi, and something that I enjoy very much, is the opportunity to see the diverse range of talents possessed by our students. This is a testament to our extensive and wide-ranging extra-curricular system, which allows our students to both discover new, and develop existing, talents. Being invited to fantastic drama productions, beautiful displays of dancing and singing, art displays, presentations, sports competitions, debates and all manner of shows and performances is a wonderful privilege and makes me feel very fortunate to be part of the Aidi education system. One of the best performances I saw in the 2016-2017 school year was our variety show at Beijing’s famous Poly theatre, where we put on an amazing and heartfelt charity event, spreading the love from Aidi to help the less fortunate. It genuinely puts a smile on my face to think back to those amazing events and I look forward to being amazed again in the new school year!
The 2017-2018 school year looks to be another exciting year at school, with new courses and subjects available, and new facilities being added. I look forward to another enjoyable year of enlightenment, success and achievement!
