We hope that everyone in our Haileybury community is safe and well following recent events in the country, and we have been working hard to make plans for reopening safely in both cities in the coming weeks. As a result of the ongoing Covid situation, the Chief Sanitary Doctors in both cities have announced that schools will operate online until at least 31st January. Key staff will contact families about these arrangements, and keep everyone updated.
The tragic events of the past days have left everyone saddened. The beautiful country of Kazakhstan is now doing its very best to prepare to return to a semblance of normality and we are working hard at Haileybury to respond to the challenges brought by recent events as well as the on-going Covid situation. Our Headmaster, Simon Mills and his team have been working tirelessly to prepare the school for every eventuality.
As you are aware, the Chief Sanitary Doctor has decreed that schools will be online until 31st January. I am sure that we will soon be able to once again be together at school, offline and operating normally. In the meantime, I enclose my best wishes to everyone for a safe and productive period in the weeks ahead.
Chairman of the Board of Governors
As we start Term 2 following the recent events in Almaty and Kazakhstan our thoughts are with all families who have suffered loss over this time of relatives or of friends. We are also very aware of the ongoing impact of Covid, and we will therefore start online on 17 January in line with the directive from the Government.
We will continue to focus on safety for all in the community, and at the same time seek to maximise learning opportunities for all ages of pupils. The staff at the school will work carefully with all families to respond to any concerns and to assist all our children and young people to make their best progress. We will move to offline teaching as soon as it is safe to do so and in line with any improvements in the situation.
We wish all families every happiness and success in 2022.
