Dear Parents,

I trust you had a wonderful and enjoyable time this festive season with your loved ones and I hope you had the time to relax and reflect on the year gone by.

A warm welcome to all new Generation Schools families who will be joining us this year. I am excited to have you in our extended family and I hope you take advantage of getting to know new and old parents alike so that we can further extend our Generation Schools community.

Then to our existing Generation Schools families, a warm welcome back. I look forward to another successful year and I know that the best is yet to come. I do believe as a community and family we will continue to grow and develop from strength to strength and I encourage you to continue believing in the Generation Schools brand.

2016 was the start of Generation Schools’ journey. We often used the phrase ‘teething problems’ to buffer concerns emerging, but this year I am confident that we will take the school to the next level.

At Generation Schools, we will continue building strong relationships within the community. I would like to encourage parents and guardians to attend important evenings and workshops hosted by the school. These are great opportunities to keep abreast with important things happening in the school. For 2017, I would like to encourage parents to become active members of our school community and to work alongside the staff to create an even more successful year.

Furthermore, we encourage you to familiarise yourself with our Schools vision and mission as well as the Montessori Philosophy, so that we can continue to ensure the home and school environments are aligned with one other. At Generation Schools, we firmly believe parenting happens at home and education happens at school.

Generation Schools will continue to build a rich environment for each and every child, to ensure we provide a one-on- one learning experience in a safe and prepared environment and to safeguard and nurture the passion of each child.

I am wishing each and every Generation Schools Family and staff a wonderful 2017.

Yours sincerely,

Kerryn Ackermann
Head of Operations
