It is a huge honour and privilege to have beeen appointed as the next Headmaster of RBIS and I am very much looking forward to becoming part of this very special community. The school's vision and values are very closely aligned with my own and I am excited by the ambitious plans to develop the school further. Already, my family and I have been made to feel extremely welcome and we are all looking forward to playing our part as members of the RBIS family.
I am looking forward to engaging fully with the entire RBIS community as soon as possible - students, staff and of course parents. I want to listen to you. I want to hear about what's working well and know about areas that we can continue to grow in. As a school leader, I have always been driven by my passion to ensure that a school is wholeheartedly committed to placing its students at the centre of all its decision-making. Their education and their happiness are my number one priorities. This sharp focus on students and their wellbeing, coupled with the importance of a strong academic and co-curricular programme, busy students who participate in music, art, drama and sport and providing a range of leadership and teamwork opportunities cannot be underestimated. This combination of opportunities is of course the perfect formula to produce healthy, happy, successful young adults at the end of their school career.
My family and I have spent many years living and working in Asia and are very excited to be here in Thailand. Since our arrival, we have found the people here to be warm, friendly and welcoming. We are delighted to be here in the land of smiles.
I look forward to meeting you all soon.
