We are pleased to announce that on the 5th of September 2016, LEAF Academy officially opened its doors for 44 students from nine countries. After four years of preparation we officially opened the school year 2016/2017 at All School Assembly.
It is an incredibly emotional time for many in the community. We are grateful, excited, humble, nervous,hopeful, and curious. This is an incredible community of adults and students who are embarking on an incredible journey together. It wouldn’t be possible without the help and support many of you have provided.
THANK YOU ALL FOR YOUR SUPPORT!
The first day in pictures
The Head of School Chris Cheney’s opening talk about community principles: respect and inclusion.
Full of expectations. Dreams. Fears. Happiness. Friendships.
Not only students are learning new things at LEAF Academy. Chris Cheney, the Head of School, took his very first ever selfie.
Not that bad for the first try, don’t you think? 🙂
Students were engaged, too.
The opening was a great success, but there is a lot of work ahead of us that will require continued support from all of our partners. It is a labor of love as we will not only teach them, but we will live and learn together with them. We will mentor them and coach them. We will laugh with them, cry with them, celebrate with them, and grow with them. We look forward to continuing this journey together.
