February Half Term Camp 2024

Pippa's Camp Diaries

Dear Parents and Guardians...

We are delighted to be hosting our 2024 half term camps at the world famous Rugby School. The excellent facilities and quality boarding houses provide the perfect setting for Pippa’s Camps.

This year, February half term for many schools, and the start of our camp was on Chinese New Year’s eve so we had a special dinner prepared for students upon their arrival and a Chinese New Year theme to many of our activities, allowing our Chinese students to celebrate and our other students to learn about the Chinese culture.

 Day One

As students began to arrive for their first evening at camp, we prepared a Chinese New Year dinner for students to enjoy whilst watching the New Year’s Gala.

Students then spent time enjoying the boarding house facilities and getting to know each other.

 Day Two

Whilst our camps help students maximise every study opportunity, we do also recognise the importance of rest and relaxation to aid successful learning. On weekend mornings students can remain in their bedrooms  if they wish. Some of our students studied in their bedrooms, some socialised with their friends and others simply had a lie in, ready to focus in the afternoon study and activity sessions.

Every afternoon we offer students a choice of activities if they wish to take a break from their school work. Saturday afternoon’s choices were badminton, volleyball, lantern making and cookery – making delicious Chinese dumplings. Study sessions are also available for those wanting to focus on school work. After supper we celebrated with fireworks and games and the Pippa’s team handed our red envelopes (a Chinese tradition) as a gift to all our students.

 Day Three

On Sunday morning, a few students were up early and enjoyed a morning swim at the school sports centre. Friendships have already began to form and students were meeting to play games in the boarding house.

After lunch many of our students joined our excursion to Rugby to visit the local shops and see more of the school campus and the town centre.

Sunday evening’s entertainment was team competitions  and games including the peanut race – a challenge to pick up as many peanuts with chopsticks as possible in the quickest time, pong – bouncing a ping pong ball into cups and Mahjong.

 Day Four

On Monday morning our camp tutors were at the study centre providing academic consultations and 1:1 support in mathematics, maths, physics, chemistry and biology.

Our choice of activities for the afternoon included tennis, cookie decorating, yoga and rounders. After dinner, students took part in a team quiz and treasure hunt.

 Day Five

On Tuesday morning students could request 1:1 time with our tutors if they wanted help in Maths, Science, English, French or Spanish. Alternatively, those who wanted a break from their studying could enjoy the gym and fitness suite.

Pippa’s University Advisor, James Harding, hosted an optional seminar for students interested in applying to UK universities. Topics included writing a personal statement, choosing the best university and the application process.

Later than day we had a choice of sports, and a cartoon artist teaching our students drawing techniques with a chinese new year theme.

In the evening students could enjoy lane swimming in the school pool or take part in our musical bingo quiz.

 Day Six

Maths tuition was available on Wednesday morning or self study and revision sessions for many of our students who have been very dedicated to their school work.

We held a mindfulness session in the morning consisting of pottery painting and then a trip to the gym for those who wanted to keep fit.

An optional excursion to Birmingham was available for students who wanted to do some shopping or continue the Chinese new year celebrations in Birmingham’s vibrant Chinese Quarter.

Most of our students attended this trip, so in the evening we relaxed with a valentine’s day movie night with popcorn.

 Day Seven

On Thursday morning, Science, English French and Spanish tutors were available to students.

There was also a seminar by James Copeland-Jordan, the Head of STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) at Cheltenham College.

The seminar explored the STEAM disciplines, what you need to know, what you need to do to get ahead and how you can ensure you are best prepared for your future in the STEAM fields.

Mr Copeland-Jordan then spent the afternoon at camp for 1:1 sessions with students who wanted personal advice and consultations relating to the STEAM subjects.

For other students there were a choice of sports including football, basketball, swimming and dodgeball as well as a fitness class by a full qualified British Triathlon coach.

 Day Eight

Friday was the last day with our camp tutors so students made the most of the opportunity to seek assistance with their studies.

Later in the morning, students feeling energetic headed over to the fitness gym.

A choice of activities was on offer for the afternoon, tennis, art, badminton and netball or the study centre remained open for those wishing to carry on with school work.

 Day Nine

Our final day at camp. We have worked hard, played hard and made some great friends. Rugby School was an excellent venue and we are thrilled to be returning here in May for the next camp.

Our final day was quite relaxing so students could return to school refreshed. Swimming was available in the morning followed by an excursion in to Rugby for the afternoon.

In the evening students played games with their new friends and packed up ready to depart the next morning back to their schools.

We hope to see you all in May!


May Half Term Camp

Pippa's Camp Diaries

Dear Parents and Guardians...

The Pippa’s Camps team arrived at Sherborne International School to glorious sunshine where they eagerly awaited the students arrivals.

The camp is organised by Camp Director Louise Hughes (centre) Camp Coordinator Jodie Godliman (right) and Chinese Liaison Officer Eden Yang (left).

The majority of our students attending this camp are preparing for GCSE, A level or Common Entrance examinations as so the focus is heavily on study and revision this time around.  We have a variety of excellent tutors onsite to support students during this important time in the academic year.

 Day One

We kicked off the first day of our half term camp with a study skills workshop which was led by Mr Adib Badri from Eton College.

This interactive workshop looked at:

How to be an effective learner
How and when to revise
Successful study techniques

Later in the day we headed over to the classrooms for self study sessions. Those who wanted to take a break from study, joined a game of football and basketball.

After supper, some students retired to their bedrooms for online lessons or further revision, others took advantage of some social time, competing in a table tennis tournament.

 Day Two

Whilst our camps help students maximise every study opportunity, we do also recognise the importance of rest and relaxation to aid successful learning. On Sunday morning students could therefore remain in their bedrooms during the morning if they wished. Some of our students studied in their bedrooms, some enjoyed basketball in the sunshine, whilst others simply had a lie in, ready to focus in the afternoon study sessions.

Every afternoon we offer students a choice of activities if they wish to take a break from their school work. Sunday afternoon’s choices were indoor climbing, football, art (glass painting) and badminton.

Later in the evening, our students divided into teams to compete in a scavenger hunt, using their problem solving skills to race to the finish.

 Day Three

On Monday morning our camp tutors arrived in the study centre ready to support our students. Academic consultations were available for mathematics, french, spanish, arabic, german, physics, chemistry and biology.

Our choice of activities for the afternoon included swimming, basketball, netball and tag rugby. Although many of our hardworking students opted to remain in the study centre.

 Day Four

Our camp tutors returned to the study centre providing academic consultations and 1:1 support in mathematics, english, french, spanish, arabic, german, physics, chemistry and biology.

Our choice of activities for the afternoon included tennis, badminton, gym, climbing and music practice.  Students were also able to remain in the study centre and revise if they wanted to.
In the evening, our students cooled off from the sunny weather with an ice cream and movie night.

 Day Five

Our camp tutors returned to the study centre providing academic consultations and 1:1 support in mathematics, physics, chemistry and biology.

After our morning study sessions, some of our students joined a guided tour of Sherborne Abbey. A beautiful and historic building founded in 705AD. We then enjoyed an ice cream before heading back to camp.

We also had a cookery and biscuit decorating class with some tasty treats for all the students to enjoy.

 Day Six

Our students have been making the most of the camp tutors. From revision of tricky subjects, past papers and proof reading to conversation practice and essay writing.

Many students joined our optional shopping trip today to Clarks village where they also enjoyed ice creams and bubble tea.

It was a warm evening so we had lots of fun playing water dodgeball outside on the lawn.

 Day Seven

Science tuition was available for students during their final study session as this was by far the most popular subject requested during camp. Academic consultations and past papers were available all morning.

In the afternoon students who were not studying played netball or enjoyed a textiles lesson outside on the lawn where they designed and created their own pillowcases. We also had students go to their music centre to practice their instruments.

 Day Eight

During our final full day at camp, some students took advantage of a lie in so they could return to school rested. Others who were early risers went to the school gym or studied.

Later that afternoon students played badminton and tennis or showed their talents in an art class.

On Saturday we were celebrating a student’s birthday, so our final evening was a joint farewell and birthday party. We had party games and music in the hall for students with prizes for the winners of the games.

 Day Nine

Students bid each other a fond farewell as they departed camp to return to their own schools. New friendships had been formed and we hope they will reunite at the next Pippa’s camp.


February Half Term Camp

Pippa's Camp Diaries

Dear Parents and Guardians...

We are delighted to be hosting another Pippa’s camp. This time at the wonderful Tudor Hall School near Oxford. As students arrived on Friday, it was fantastic to see so many familiar faces as well as some new ones.

My team and I have an exciting programme prepared for your children and will keep you posted with lots of pictures on our social media platforms and through these camp diaries.

Louise Hughes
Camp Director

Day One

As schools closed for the half term break, students were making their way to Tudor Hall for the start of our February half term camp. As students arrived they were shown to their accommodation and spent the afternoon unpacking, relaxing and exploring their home for the next 10 days.

At 6pm, we all headed over to the dining room for supper and a welcome briefing from Camp Director Louise and introductions to the rest of the camp staff.

 Day Two

As the first official day of the half term holiday, there were no compulsory activity or study sessions. Students could therefore choose between studying in their bedrooms, relaxing or socialising in the common rooms.

After lunch, students had the choice of football, netball, gym, basketball and studying.

After supper, our evening social event was a “getting to know you” scavenger hunt. Students were given a series of questions that they had to answer. The answers could only be found by talking to their fellow camp mates and staff as each student unknowingly had one answer.

Questions included; Who is the oldest student? Who is a vegetarian? Who has a Canadian passport? Who was born in September?

This got students talking to each other and was a perfect ice breaker to begin the camp.

Day Three

Sunday morning allowed students another chance to relax and rest before study and tutor sessions commenced.

In the afternoon students chose from a variety of activities including badminton, dance, tag rugby or a walk in the fresh air to the local farm shop and cafe. Classrooms were also open for those students who wanted to spend the afternoon studying or practicing music.

Our evening social event was a music quiz. All of our students were very good at the quiz and determining a winner was very tricky as we had a number of students with the same number of points at the end. After holding tie breakers with fellow students shouting and cheering, we settled on two winners, Anton and Ronit – Well done boys!

Day Four

Study and revision started first thing on Morning morning with tutors in Maths and Science on hand for 1:1 consultations or group revision.

After the lunch break, students could choose further study sessions or from the camp activities which included art, rounders, gym or netball.

In the evening we held a mini olympics event where students competed in teams in a series of fun challenges.

 Day Five

Happy Valentine’s Day!

Our morning started with tutoring sessions in Science, English, Spanish and French alongside self study and revision.

After lunch students could choose to continue their study, or take part in a valentine’s cookie decorating, badminton or dodgeball.

In the evening we held a valentine’s disco with lots of dancing.

Day Six

Tutors in Science joined our morning study sessions to assist students where needed.

After students had completed their self study and revision, some students joined our excursion to Bicester shopping village, others chose to stay on campus and study further or take part in Basketball or Badminton.

Later that day, students relaxed with a movie and pamper night.

Day Seven

Students have now been at the camp a week and very familiar with the routine and the campus.

Tutors in Science, English, Maths, French and Science were available to tutor or assist the students as required.

After lunch, we had a variety of activities available, including art (clay sculpture making) basketball, volleyball, or show practice. Classrooms remained open for those wanting to continue their studies.

In the evening we held a lip sync/ talent show in the hall. Students performed dance routines they had prepared in groups and as solos.

Students watching were very supportive, clapping and cheering on their camp mates as they bravely took to the stage.

Day Eight

Students made the most of their final day with our tutors, booking 1:1 and small group revision sessions.

After lunch we held further study sessions as well as a cookery class, dodgeball and gym activities.

After supper we held a games night for students in the common room.

 Day Nine

Our final day of camp before students depart and return home to their schools. The day started with rest and relaxation in their boarding houses so that students could feel refreshed before restarting classes at school.

In the afternoon we offered study sessions, an outdoor walk and badminton.

Later in the evening, we held a farewell party before students packed their suitcases ready to depart.


Heading home for Christmas

Heading home for Christmas.

Merry Christmas to everyone!

It is so wonderful to see so many of our students heading home for the Christmas break. It was only a few years ago that students couldn’t get home for the holidays due to the Covid pandemic, so we are pleased that this year so many students are able to get home to spend some time with their families.

At Pippa’s Guardians we pride ourselves on the fact that, when possible, we will be there in person for our students as they travel home. Our Area Managers, host families and network of chaperones are on hand to assist and to allay any worries students might be feeling about their journeys.

Some students are naturally nervous about flying so far alone, and for some it will be their first experience of flying without a guardian. So we were pleased to be able to support many of them as they boarded their plane home for Christmas. Then we enjoy following up to make sure our students have been met safely at the other end. We now look forward to welcoming our students back in the new year, after a well-earned rest.

Here are a few photos of students preparing to enjoy their Christmas holidays, whether that means getting home, or making plans for staying in the UK.

Area Manager Michelle recently enjoyed the Godstowe School carol concert, after which she collected student Nico from her boarding house. Nico then spent a lovely day with Michelle and her daughter, and later that evening Michelle accompanied Nico to the airport so that she could catch her flight back to Japan.

Mido used the school transport service to get to Heathrow airport from Malvern St James Girls’ School, however, this meant she arrived at terminal 3 at lunchtime, but her flight was from terminal 4 at 9pm. Pippa’s Guardians Managing Director Ben accompanied her to the correct terminal and waited with her until she was able to check in for her flight that evening.

Ren, who studies at Windlesham House School, flew home to Tokyo for Christmas just after his 13th birthday, where his Mum was excited to meet him at the airport. They sent this wonderful picture to their Pippa’s Area Manager Anne-Marie to let her know Ren arrived safely and they were happily reunited.

Students Sakura and Yurika are studying in the UK for a year and were recently introduced to their host family, who they will be staying with over the Christmas break. The host family have planned a festive trip to London to see the sights, a living nativity with carols at Ludlow Castle, and a gala dinner at Netley Hall in Shrewsbury for Christmas Day (with stuffed quail as one of the starters!). Sakura is a runner, so is keen to take part in a park run in Ludlow, as well as visiting her local friends that she has made. Yurika is going on a trip to Germany with some school friends for first few days of holidays, which Area Manager Gilly Hartley has helped her to arrange.

It is not easy for our international students to take a short trip to Paris, as this requires a Schengen VISA. To apply, parents often seek the help of a VISA specialist to help compile the vast amount of documentation required. Once completed, the student must go to the VISA centre in London, accompanied by their Guardian. This process was something Area Manager, Sarah Davies from Cheltenham, was so pleased to be able to help her student with, enabling a family trip to Paris for Christmas. This is something the family had always wanted to do, so we wish them a wonderful holiday.

Chaperone Nick recently accompanied Lillian from Sherborne Girls to Heathrow, to ensure that Lillian could safely catch her flight home.

Haileybury student Valerie had never flown on her own before so was understandably a bit nervous. Pippa’s Guardians Managing Director Ben stayed close by during check in so that she felt more confident and was able to pass through security and board her flight home.

更多付出和努力

在英国学习的签证有时候会非常棘手,如果学生在学生签证开始日期之前以游客身份入境,那么学校可能会要求学生离境,重新进入英国激活签证和在签注上盖章。为了完成该入境程序,学生就需要离开英国,到境外进行短暂旅行,然后重新返回英国。

这种情况就发生了Tina身上,Tina就读于索尔兹伯里( Salisbury )的戈多尔芬学校( Godolphin school )。她在她的培宝区域经理Rose的陪同下完成了一次短暂的巴黎之行。虽然这不在我们作为培宝监护人的正常职责范围内,但我们始终致力于在学生留学过程的各个方面为他们提供支持,并在力所能及的情况下提供帮助。

我们始终坚持“多走一英里(即更多的付出和努力)”的工作方式。所以,这一次我们的一位区域经理就真的“走了”几百英里!

与其把这次旅行当成一个行政任务,她俩决定倒不如把它变成一次教育体验,那么,她们能在这么短的时间内看到和体验多少东西呢?

她们乘火车从索尔兹伯里前往伦敦,然后登上前往巴黎的欧洲之星,晚上七点前抵达巴黎。在火车上,Tina说了她 A level 艺术课程的学习,因此Rose帮她定到了卢浮宫的门票,放下行李后,她们步行到巴黎市区,步入了这座令人惊叹的博物馆和艺术馆。Tina拍摄了她目前正在学习的艺术家的雕塑和绘画作品,当然还看了了世界上最顶级的画作《蒙娜丽莎》。

当天的夜晚皓月当空,是一轮满月,因此,在受到奇妙的艺术启发后,Tina拍了一张令人惊叹的“丰收之月”的 照片。

从卢浮宫出来后还有时间,她们就去埃菲尔铁塔,由于当晚天气温暖,很多人都出来欣赏夜景,10 点钟的时候,铁塔开始闪耀起令人眩目的灯光秀,这又是一个即壮观又特别的时刻。

周六早上,她们在一家咖啡馆吃了法国传统早餐,看着外面的人来人往,享受着人间烟火,这可是巴黎地道的消遣方式。然后,她们去传统商店里逛了一圈,Rose还教了Tina一些有用的法语,尤其是在糕点店,Tina决定挑战一下,带着法棍面包和传统马卡龙回学校!

爬完台阶后,城市美景尽收眼底。她们正好有足够的时间去参观圣心大教堂。

最后,是时候返回车站乘坐欧洲之星回程了,当然也是时候在Tina的护照上盖章并激活她的签证了。

法国首都之行虽然短暂,但Tina看到了一些杰出的艺术作品,学习了一点法语,置身于一些标志性建筑之间,并留下了终生难忘的回忆。

我们很高兴能够帮助Tina的签证事宜,同时还让她享受到了法国艺术和文化带来的乐趣。

(法国万岁)

 

 


British Boarding School Fair Japan

Last weekend Pippa’s Guardians, delivered our very first British Boarding School Fair in Japan (https://bbsfjapan.com/). Our decision to run such an event was based on the increasing level of interest in our School Advice Service as well as increased Guardianship enquiries.

Our goal is to recruit students from the Japanese market my demystifying UK Boarding Schools and making them more accessible. We have started this process by bringing 15 leading boarding schools to Japan where they met with over 400 families in one day. The volume of interest was simply extraordinary, and schools had lines of families waiting to speak to them from 10am to 430pm. Furthermore, information seminars provided some further context for Japanese families and feedback suggest the event itself was a roaring success.

Our research and the attendance at our event, demonstrates that more and more Japanese families are looking to access UK boarding schools for their children, often as young as 9 years old. The ISC census confirms that, in the last 10 years, there has been a 117% increase in Japanese students enrolling in UK Boarding Schools. In further research we discovered that most Japanese families see UK boarding schools as distant, inaccessible, expensive and very traditional. There is a misconception that our schools are beyond the reach of many Japanese families and therefore schools in America, Canada, Australia, Switzerland and New Zealand have been the ‘go to’ option.

Aside from running an extremely popular fair we are hosting information sessions both online and in person in Japan to talk about UK Boarding Schools. Information sessions that are well received by Japanese families as they simply lack the necessary information to make informed decisions about UK boarding schools. We have also received a lot of interest from the Japanese media; Prior to the event, we were interviewed no less than five times by leading media organisations all keen to understand the UK boarding school market further.

Ben Hughes, Managing Director for Pippa’s and managed the event in Japan. “When I was 10 years old my school had two Japanese and three Thai students as boarders and this was in 1991. It was a transformation experience for me as a young boy, I loved meeting these new cultures and getting to know them better. We even acted as their host family and visited them in Asia – wonderful!  My point is, Japanese students have been coming to UK boarding schools for years, when properly advised it can be hugely beneficial for Japanese students but also very positive for the British students too, as I can attest. Whilst Japanese students coming to UK schools isn’t new, what is changing is the sheer volume and the increase in demand for information about our schools.“

Japanese students and UK Boarding Schools, it’s a thriving, vibrant and positive collaboration for all parties and we’ll see numbers of students really starting to increase in 2024 and beyond.

Nicola Hugget attended the event representing Cheltenham College. “Our experience of the Pippa’s Guardians fair in Japan was superb. It was very well-advertised in country ensuring a large turn-out of families and we felt it was an excellent first introduction for us into the Japanese market. The trip itself encompassed many interesting elements, not just meeting parents and pupils, but also helping us to understand more of the culture. The level of information that parents received was excellent as it ensured they made informed choices in who they approached. The whole event, and subsequent visits around the fair itself were very thoughtfully and carefully structured. The use of excellent translators was also a terrific detail that made a huge difference. We will certainly want to attend future Pippa’s events overseas.”

We are very grateful for the 15 schools who took the ‘leap of faith’ with us and came all the way to Tokyo (some just for the weekend) to recruit students and to support us at our inaugural event.

Our sincere thanks to:

 

Mr Tim Day, Ms Laura Bursey Faulkner and Mr Neil Hampton from Rugby School

Mr Giles Vosper Brown from Stowe School

Mr Richard Houchin from Cheltenham Ladies’ College

Ms Lorna Dolan from Sevenoaks School

Ms Jane Jorgensen from Abingdon School

Dan Thornburn and James Postle from Millfield Prep School and Millfield School

Ms Nicola Hugget and Mr Simon Conner from Cheltenham College

Mr Dylan Smart from Blundells School

Ms Jo Covenay and Ms Lizzy Lewis from Christ’s Hospital School

Ms Pauline Jackson from Malvern College

Mr David Watkin from Culford School

My James Hills from Clifton College

Ms Rachel Debenham from Wellington School

Ms Donna Cresswell from Queenswood School

Most importantly, Amelia and Archie Hughes representing The Elms School!

Arigato, until next year!


Going the extra mile

Visas to study in the UK can be challenging at times, and if a student enters as a tourist prior to their student visa start date, schools may require the visa to be activated and stamped so a short trip outside the UK is needed.

This scenario was true for Tina who studies at Godolphin in Salisbury, so Rose, her Pippa’s Area Manager accompanied Tina on a very short visit to Paris. Whilst this is not a normal part of our role as Tina’s guardian, we always strive to support our students in all aspects of their study abroad journey and step in and help if we can. We believe in ‘going the extra mile’ and in this case it involved one of our Area Managers literally travelling hundreds of miles.

Rather than the trip being an administrative task they decided to make it an educational adventure, how much could they see and experience in a short time?

They travelled by train from Salisbury to London, then boarded the Eurostar to Paris arriving just before 7pm. On the train Tina discussed her Art A level studies, so Rose was able to secure some entrance tickets for the Louve, so after dropping off the bags we walked down through Paris and entered the amazing museum and art gallery. Tina was able to photograph sculptures and paintings by artists she is currently studying and of course stand and look at the Mona Lisa.

Outside there was a stunning clear night sky with a full moon- the Harvest Moon so after being inspired by the amazing art, Tina was able to capture the Harvest Moon in her hand, which created a stunning photograph.

From the Louvre there was time to travel to the Eiffel Tower, and as it was a warm evening hundreds of people were out enjoying the evening and at 10’Oclock the Tower began to sparkle with an amazing light show, yet another spectacular and special moment.

 

On Saturday morning it was time to enjoy a traditional breakfast at a Café and to watch the world go by, a famous Parisian pastime. Then a stroll around the traditional shops and Rose was able to teach Tina some useful French vocabulary, especially in the Patisserie shop, Tina decided to set a challenge, to return to school with a Baguette and traditional Macaroons!

There was just enough time to visit the Sacre-Coeur Basilica, after climbing the steps below was the amazing view of the city.

Finally, it was time to return to the Gare du Nord for the return trip back on the Eurostar, and of course to have Tina’s passport stamped and her visa activated.

The trip to the French capital was brief, but Tina was able to see some outstanding art, learn a little French language, stand amongst some iconic architecture and create memories of a lifetime.

We are delighted that we were able to help Tina with her visa whilst also having lots of fun and soaking up some French art and culture.

Vive la France!

A very warm welcome

As the school holidays draw to an end, our Area Managers have been busy with one of their favourite parts of the school year, the Meet and Greets.

Pippa’s Guardians personally welcomes students and their parents as they arrive in the UK in readiness to start their new adventure. These valuable face-to-face meetings allow us to get to know the students and build strong relationships so that we can support them over many years. We introduce our host families by visiting them together at their home so parents can also see where their child will be staying. We also help arrange school uniform and other equipment such as bedding or sports kit as needed.

We understand how anxious parents and students can be, especially in the first few weeks, but our Area Managers are close by and check in with the students regularly to support them and ensure the start of term is as smooth as possible.

Here are a few photos from the first meetings with our new students.

A big family meet and greet for Pippa’s Area Manager Sarah N! Sarah already supports Kayley and her brother Aidan at Oundle School and now their younger sister Camille is joining them. Their cousin Daphne is also joining Pippa’s Guardians and will be studying at Kent College.  Her younger brother, Mum and Dad were also visiting and able to meet Sarah.

不舍离别,未来可期

不舍离别,未来可期

新学期即将到来,我们的心情即开心又伤感,因为我们要和一些我们喜爱的学生告别了。这是一年中高年级学生展翅高飞的时刻,他们即将迈入人生和大学的下一个阶段。在这个离别的时刻,我们要衷心地感谢他们让培宝成为他们不可思议的留学旅程中的一部分。

在培宝与学生们一起度过的日子里,他们不仅仅获得了学业上的成绩,同时也得到了个人的成长。学生们和朋友结下了深厚的友谊,留下了美好的回忆,学到了宝贵的生活技能。我们的区域经理和寄宿家庭看着他们顺利升入大学,准备好迎接新的挑战,并且满怀自豪地和他们道别。我们相信,学生们未来的成就会让我们感到骄傲。

以下是部分学生的故事和留言……

Hayden一直在Uppingham学校读书,并希望能在大学学习航空工程。

最近,他的培宝区域经理Sarah开车送他去火车站,给他妈妈一个惊喜,让他告诉妈妈一个令人兴奋的消息,他在当天早上刚刚通过了驾照考试。

那周的晚些时候,Hayden的父母还邀请Sarah一起吃了午餐,和她告别。

 

“ 我想说,非常感谢您在过去四年里对我的照顾。我知道我变得不那么有条理,慢慢地给您添了一些麻烦🙂,有您当我的监护人,我真的很开心。我和您一起度过了一个愉快的期中假。祝您暑假愉快,明年顺顺利利,期待再见面。”

(Hayden对他的培宝区域经理Sarah的祝福)

Kevin一直在Shrewsbury学校学习,自2019年以来,他的放假时间都住在同一个寄宿家庭,因此他们的告别非常感人,但他们发誓要一直保持联系。

“ 我们还记得第一次见到Kevin和他妈妈时的情景。当时他还是一个十几岁的孩子,看起来非常稚嫩和紧张,而且非常害羞。但他很快就融入了我们的家庭,喜欢住在我们家。Shu喜欢给他和另一个中国学生做中国菜。Kevin喜欢打网球和乒乓球,他的目标是在这两个活动中都打败Shu,他最后真的做到了!

Kevin学会了制作披萨,还学习了保龄球和溜冰技能。看到他越来越自信,我们也很开心,我们还陪他经历了他各个时期的不同的发型!

Kevin是一个有礼貌、乐于助人的年轻人,我们很开心这些年来能照顾他、支持他。他已经长成了一个自信的小伙子,专注于自己的学业和未来。看到他离开我们,我们感到非常不舍,但也非常高兴他能迈向更激动人心的时刻。我们非常自豪参与和支持了他的留学生涯,并为他提供一个温暖舒适的家。我们祝愿他未来幸福美满。”
