As a recent principal of Assumption English School (AES), I am very encouraged by what I have experienced in 2018, in particular, the vibrant and positive tone of the school. The students are polite, respectful and friendly, and are an affirmation of the care and professionalism of the teachers and staff of AES.
2018 was an exciting year as we celebrated our 65th Anniversary. The school organized the AES Charity Golf which was also a fundraising effort for the school building and the Academic and Sports Excellence programme. This initiative will allow us to provide a first-rate holistic educational experience for our students in the years ahead.
The last installment of the celebration was the 65th Anniversary Dinner, where we returned, reconnected, rejoiced with our former school leaders, teachers, alumni and other stakeholders. It was a time to deepen and celebrate our identity as Assumptionknights. Indeed, we are grateful to the alumni and everyone connected to AES for their love and pride in the school. It augurs well for us as we forge ahead knowing we have strong support from our stakeholders.
AES will continue to work towards a unique school experience that is anchored in values espoused by Saint Louis Marie de Montfort: encourage our students to have a voice and ownership in their learning, to believe in themselves and to contribute meaningfully to society.
There is much to look forward to in Assumption English School in 2019. We have a handsome school building with excellent facilities, committed and caring teachers, delightful students, passionate alumni and supportive stakeholders. Together with a rich history underpinned by the Montfortian belief that “those whom the world rejects must move us the most”, the journey ahead will surely be meaningful and promising.
