Summer 2014

Founder’s Message Dear Pao School Community, Firstly, congratulations to our first cohort of students graduating from Middle Division this June. I am pleased to announce our new team of highly-experienced international educators that will lead our Secondary Division. Lee Sanders from the UK will be Director of Academic Affairs. Jayne Lund, who has over 20 years of experience in the IBDP in Europe and Asia, will be our new IB Coordinator. Rhonda Leshman will be our Director of College Counselling, bringing 20 years of experience in college admissions and counselling. The design team has worked hard for the past 7 months on concepts for new facilities to be constructed this summer. The Board has also decided to purchase the Songjiang campus. With a total of RMB 250 million needed to fund the purchase, any assistance you can provide would be greatly appreciated. Daniel Legault and Joe Elias from our Secondary Division will be leaving Pao School. We thank them for their 1

many contributions over the past several years. Their hard work and efforts have laid a solid foundation for the growth of Pao School. Serena Shen will be the new Director of Curriculum for our Year 6-8 students. She will be responsible not only for curriculum development but also professional development for our teachers, while Lee Sanders will head the IGCSE curriculum for our Year 9-10 students. Andrew Hamilton will be our new Director of Student Life, and will be responsible for the social and character development of our students. YK Pao School has led in the education reform as we continue to be in the forefront of bi-lingual, private, not-for-profit education. Our students have been receiving awards and recognition in many areas, including debate, swimming, choral music, cycling, drama and art. A syllabus for Character Education has also been developed to cultivate students that will play a meaningful role in society.
