Dear Parents, Students, Colleagues,
At the end of this first week with our students back, and what good energy and enthusiasm they have brought to our campus, I have some excellent news for all. I am so very pleased to tell you all that Dr. Régine de Blegiers will take over as Head of the High School at Keystone in July this year, after Dr. Diana Martelly leaves. This is such good news for Keystone. We have conducted an extensive and patient search, starting last summer, to end with this exciting outcome. We had a first round of interviews with candidates from within China here on campus shortly before the break for the western New Year. After that, we carried on searching on a rolling basis, with our consultant agents RSAcademics interviewing about 10 new selected candidates in January. Régine met a number of senior leaders in extensive virtual discussions in February and came through this process as our top choice. I feel very fortunate that we have someone of Régine’s expertise and experience to take up the outstanding legacy of Diana Martelly.
