School visits commenced at the beginning of February and gave us time to catch up with holiday news, to introduce the new Grade 8’s to the rest of the Spirit scholars at their schools, to ensure that they had all they need for the school year, to plan and organise extra tutoring and to chat about goals and challenges for the year.  School visits are vital to the building of relationships with our scholars and lead to more accountability and effective communication with them.  We extend special thanks to our Spirit coordinators at each of our partner schools who kindly assist us with the management of these visits.
