bsb-adele-corryStarting the new school year, The British School of Beijing (BSB), Shunyi Campus welcomes a new Deputy Head of Primary, Adele Corry.

Corry is a New Zealand trained teacher and she began her teaching career in 1980 in a small forestry town in the North Island. Since then, she has taught in a variety of schools ranging from a remote rural community in New Zealand to a large international school in Taiwan. She relocated to England in 1990 and taught in the county of Wiltshire before gaining the position of Head of British Junior School at Taipei European School in 2008. She is currently studying for a Master’s in Education.

In her career, Corry has had various positions of responsibility including leadership of English, Mathematics, ICT, PE and Music. She has taught all year groups from the Foundation Stage to Year 7.

Corry believes that education is about enabling children to achieve their full potential so they can lead happy, self-assured and meaningful lives. The current generation of young people in schools today will be the problem solvers of the future and equipping them with the means to not only deal with problems, but to create a better world, is central to her purpose as an educator.

She believes that in a Primary School context this first means a strong foundation in the basics; a child has the right to expect to learn to be literate, numerate and technologically conversant. That on its own, though, is not enough. She believes children should be encouraged and challenged to achieve high standards in all areas: academic, sporting, musical, artistic, dramatic performance and personal development.
