Dear Parents, We are into Week 2 of the new year: everyone enjoying being back in routine, now we have all got used to the early start times once more. It is all, I think, very well summarized, in the new Video just out: ESM: Together Again, which I hope you will enjoy. It captures the essence of renewed purpose and activity, so noticeable round the School. With lots of new faces, especially in Grade 1 where we have 4 Classes, there are 800 Students on the Roll. Some new Teachers too, including in reinforced Departments like Sports, Music and ICT - and with other Teachers at the Ramada Hotel, in quarantine, until they can return. The last few days have seen successful Countryside Days in the idyllic countryside next to…

Dear Parents, As you know, we have been running Warm-Up Phases 1 and 2 successfully over the last two weeks. Looking beyond this, the new School Year for ESM starts properly on Tuesday 1 September. Respecting the important safety issues arising from the Pandemic, we will not hold a traditional-style Opening Ceremony for Parents on that Morning. We have in mind a gathering for the larger ESM Family, once we are assured conditions are really right. Our Calendar for Term 1 includes Countryside Days, involvement with MKCC (The Mongolian Kuwait Conservation Centre) and we hope for a Charity Concert (details to follow). We will also be running some Parents’ Evening over the next few weeks, so that early in the year, Parents will have the opportunity to get to know…

Dear Parents, I am writing to you as, at long last, we are coming near to the time when ESM can open again. It has been a protracted summer, but I hope all of our families have been able to spend some valuable time together over Naadam and the Holidays.
