Farewell to Chris, Sarah and Ling

From English Teacher to Camera Man with many jobs in between. 

Chris Hall retires at the end of this term, after holding a contract at Traidhos for almost eight years. Chris initially ran the Diana Princess of Wales International Study Centre (DPWISC), an early forerunner of today's Intensive English Programme before accepting the post of Admissions and Marketing Director. After successfully developing links in Europe and facilitating the admission of many students into Prem, he carried out feasibility studies for a number of possible Traidhos projects, edited Prem Year books and publications and the Traidhos Quarterly Magazine. Chris helped to develop consistency across campus publications driving both the style guide and corporate colour palettes.

Apart from his official roles, Chris has tirelessly shared his love of theatre, bringing opera and orchestral concerts onto campus and supporting behind the scenes on many school productions. 

Chris has been a supportive and conscientious member of the Traidhos Team, quietly and methodically working through each task. His reliability and good humour will be truly missed but he deserves the opportunities that retirement will bring. 

I wish him happy travels and interesting days!

Farewell to Sarah (1872)

The Farm Team bids farewell to Sarah this week as she prepares to travel and then return to the UK to complete a PGCE. For two years, Sarah has led the farm education team, her high energy and infectious smile welcoming many Visiting Schools groups and patiently encouraging and teaching Prem students during class, Exploria and boarding activities. We will miss her friendly and positive personality and wish her well as she explores more formal teaching opportunities.

Goodbye Ling (0499)

VSP staff Kit Ling has completed her final trip as a VSP facilitator and is preparing to return to her home country of Hong Kong. Ling joined VSP to be with her husband VSP staff Kien. During her time with VSP she was responsible for the Community Market, taught Chinese language to Traidhos staff, supported with Chinese translation and led many visiting groups during their trips to northern Thailand.  We are sad to see her go and wish her good luck for the future.
