What a fabulous start to the year. SWIS warmly welcomed many new students and staff this first week. It was a wonderful start to the year with old friends reuniting and new friendships being made.

In the library, Ms. Sharon Lin, Ms. Julie Liu and Ms. Clare Farrow welcomed Mrs. Maria Chaytor as a new team member. She will be the Secondary Teacher Librarian, Extended Essay and Personal Project Coordinator at SWIS and looks forward to helping SWIS students and staff with the challenges of the IB curriculum, especially in promoting robust research skills and forging new partnerships within the community.
