The summer Term has started; ESM and UB are full of new life and buzz. Last weekend saw our U11 Girls Football Team continue to progress to the city semi-final rounds of the Duulian Tournament, while 700 delegates filled our classrooms for a Maths Olympiad.
Numbers on Roll are now over 600, with further growth anticipated for August, alongside a continuing school improvement programme. One aspect of this will be a total make-over of our Assembly Hall, so that in its new form it can seat 400+ students- now an urgent need for Middle/ Senior Assemblies! We welcomed new numbers of staff this week; two Junior School teachers, a Chemistry specialist, IT Designer and Lab Technician.
Exams loom large, with May dominated by the run of Cambridge IGCSE and AS Papers, Mongolian State Exams- and for the first time the completion of the IB Diploma. There are Mock Exams in week 5 and end of year assessments for all grades. Next Wednesday and Thursday we host Parents` Evening for the entire school from Pre-School upwards.
The Calendar untill the mid-Term St. George`s Day Break (starting on 21 April) confirms an imposing variety of events, with the World Scholars` Cup weekend at Elite and our own Model UN Conference (at school and the Chingis Hotel with 180 delegates expected) in the next fortnight. Dr.Andrew Fisher, Director of Music Composition at Southampton University, England, starts his Residency on Mongolian Folk Tales with Middle School Students on Monday.
More Outside Sports now as the weather warms up, with Running and Cross Country added to the programme. Our U19 Boys and Girls Team Kick off for the UBAC Football Tournaments (at U15, U13 and U11 levels too) later in April.
The Box Office for the “The Phantom of The Opera”, now in rehearsal for performances in April at the State Academic Theatre, opens next week. Come and listen to the Music of the Night.
On Friday 31 March, we are holding a Themed Open Morning from 8.30 am to 13.00 pm. All parents will be very welcome to attend what we hope will be an authentic showcasing of the many talented worlds of ESM.
Facebook (www.facebook.com/esmsocials) highlights the passing occasions: do join us to participate in then whenever you can. And if you are in Emart over the next few days, do visit our thought -provoking ESM Art Exhibition Connectivity on Floor 4.
