|The Smith family|
We are delighted to announce the appointment of Fiona and Tim Smith as houseparents for our 7 - 10 year olds this summer. Fiona and Tim will be coming to us from Regents International School Pattaya, in Thailand, where they have been working as houseparent to children aged 3 - 9 and Early Years Teaching Assistant respectively. Fiona has a PGCE in Education and is a Level 3 Forest School Practitioner (environmental education). Both have recently updated Child Protection and First Aid qualifications. Fiona and Tim have two young children who will also be joining us at Port Regis, living and playing alongside our 7 - 10 year olds. Fiona writes: "I am currently working on a project on Positive Education with themes such as promoting resilience, identifying character strengths, positive relationships, etc. I hope to bring some of the knowledge and skills that I gain to use in summer school." We feel very lucky to have found Fiona and Tim and look forward to welcoming them and their children to English Country Schools this summer.
