Executive Director Update – June 2018

POSTED: June 5, 2018Category: Executive Director BlogBY: Richard Moire

Welcome to my last update for the 2017/18 school year. At AISA we know that as educators, you strive for excellence every week of the year in all aspects of what you do for the students in our schools. As the school year winds to a close for many of our members, we want to take a moment to say thank you for being an AISA member. I wish you all a very restful break and look forward to seeing you all next year. Well not quite all…

We must say goodbye to some of our outgoing heads and hello to the incoming heads joining us next year.

I’d like to make a special mention of our REO from the Office of Overseas Schools – Mary Russman, who will also be moving on at the end of this year. Mary, I know all our A/OS schools join me in thanking you for all you have done for the Africa region. We also welcome Tom Shearer who will take on the REO’s responsibilities for the AISA region next year. Tom, as an experienced Africa hand, we warmly welcome you back to AISA.

I’d also like to thank the AISA Board of Directors and the terrific AISA Team who have worked so hard to ensure our programmes and services remain at a high quality and continue to serve your needs.

Finally, 2018 marks a full decade that I have been working for AISA. The AISA Board has generously agreed that I can take a short sabbatical from May 28th – August 24th to reflect and revive as we enter into our 50th year. During my time away, Graham Watts ( will be acting Executive Director. In the event of an emergency he will be able to contact me.

All the best.

Dr Peter Bateman

AISA Executive Director
