Glenn Canterford, the Principal of St Andrew’s School, recently unveiled the
key points of the School’s new Strategic Plan to parents, teachers, faculty and
alumni during an evening cocktail reception.
Held on the premises of the Palm Cay Development, the School’s Community
Partner, the cocktail reception was attended by over 150 members of the
community, and was widely considered a great success.
Thanks to the generosity of the
greater St Andrew’s community, the cocktail reception, and its accompanying
silent auction, raised a total of $17,439.00 to benefit the highly-valued St
Andrew’s School Scholarship Programme.
new Strategic Plan outlines five main goals for the School through the year
2020 and was compiled through the collaborative efforts of every constituency
within the school over a 6-month period. The five titled goals capture the
essence of the policies and actions required within each module: "Mission
Inspires Action”, "Beyond the Classroom”, "Truly International”, "Excellence In
Teaching”, and "Ready for the Future”. A
hard copy of the Strategic Plan is available from the St. Andrew’s School Main
Office, or via the website at www.standrewsbahamas.com.
Glenn Canterford said he was pleased with the evening’s event, "It was
wonderful to see so many faculty and staff, parents, alumni, and friends of the
School enjoying themselves together; we are all eager to begin the work to
achieve our goals on behalf of the students and parents. We’re headed in a
remarkable direction at St Andrew’s, and it’s a course we have chosen together.”
School’s Development Officer, Nicole Knowles, expressed her thanks to the many
sponsors. "It turned out to be a lovely evening that brought our St. Andrew’s
family together and proved to be a fitting way to mark an exciting new era here
at the School! So many people and local
businesses contributed to the silent auction, as well as the event itself, that
we are truly grateful; their generous sponsorship and support was very much
