Dear Parents,
 
Part of the work Anfield does to support the local community is to host teacher training students from Hong Kong Universities. It is vital that trainee teachers see how their theoretical knowledge is actually applied in the classroom.  Our highly skilled international staff are always willing to share their expertise so that others understand both the realities of teaching and also the huge satisfaction that is to be gained from following this career path.
 
As such, we welcomed 17 students from the Education University Hong Kong, this week, to support their studies in the Postgraduate Diploma in Education (Primary) Programme. They focused on our curriculum, daily operations, teaching styles, the impact on student learning, and how to ensure the students develop a global perspective as members of our Anfield family. It was extremely gratifying to be able to support the teachers of the future in their development!

Dear Parents,
 
All staff members have spent time recently highlighting the threads we weave when facilitating the children’s growth mindset, mindfulness, international mindedness and character development.
 
Underpinning these are the skills crucial for effective functioning as adults, the “6Cs” - Character education, Citizenship, Communication, Critical-thinking, Collaboration and Creativity.
 
Earlier this week, I sent all parents detailed information about the “6 Cs” and how you can support us in increasing the children’s awareness of them on a day-to-day basis. I am sure that you will agree it is vital that we all focus on these global competencies to help our students function effectively as adults in the 21st Century!

It gave new parents real insight into why these areas are a priority for us at Anfield, and also provided updates and additional resources for those parents who have been following our
