We have been back at school for a while now and I hope that you have all had a smooth and enjoyable start to the new school year and new routines. I felt that this would be a good opportunity to introduce myself once the information overload of the first days had passed.
Many of you know me, but for those of you who I haven’t met yet: I am Peter Ledger and I am the new Deputy Director Upper School at ISB for 2015/16.
This is my fifth year at ISB during which time I have worked in a variety of different roles from Homeroom Teacher and Performing Arts Teacher to AMU Chairman and Joint Comenius Coordinator.
Prior to moving to Norway I worked in the English state system, my last role being Year Leader on a rolling basis in a large comprehensive school for eleven years. I have worked in Birmingham and London and have been teaching for over twenty years. In a former life I was a stage actor and worked in British theatre.
I am very much looking forward to the challenges ahead and working in partnership with you in my new role at ISB.
Thank you to all of you who attended the Parent Information Evening on the 27th August. It was great to meet so many of you then. I hope you found the evening useful and informative. I got the impression that a lot of meaningful dialogue was taking place and that good connections were being made across our community.
Thank you too to those of you who volunteered to be involved more in the school in the various ways as outlined by Mrs. Murison, if anyone would still like to sign up it`s not too late just contact me at school.
Finally as part of our House activities for the year and to further promote our positive school environment I would like to announce that on Friday the 4th September we will be holding a whole Upper School Activity. We will be having an excursion over Nattlandsfjell with a picnic lunch at the top and activities including an orienteering challenge. Further details of the event are to follow shortly including information regarding appropriate clothing and supplies needed on the day along with a permission slip for you to sign.
If you need to speak to me personally of course you are always free to contact me at the school.
