Many of our students go home for their first half term so we are busy arranging their safe transfer to and from airports. This weekend passed was our biggest half term arrival in history and all went very smoothly. Minor problems included students not being able to find their drivers straight away. Of course the drivers were there holding their yellow Bright World boards with the student names clearly on it but even so students do not find them. We are used to this though and they just need to call our emergency number or the driver and we soon hook them up together.
Those students who stayed in the UK for the half term holiday enjoyed themselves very much. Anyone staying with a host family for the first time was visited by their Bright World Buddy, our Local Coordinator who went to make sure they were happy and settled.
Above you will see one of our favourite host families, Margaret Hann, with Rita and Maggie who although they only arrived in September, are already part of the family.
"Bright World is committed to safeguarding and promoting the welfare of children and young people and expects all staff and volunteers to share this commitment."
The number of UK Boarding Schools and important Industry Associations attending our Company Conference last week was testament to how highly thought of Bright World Guardianships is. We have had some wonderful feedback at how impressed our guests were with the amount we invest in Child Protection and Safeguarding. It is so important to bring the whole company together once each year to share experiences and obtain important Child Protection Training. I believe it really sets Bright World apart and enables us to strive to be the best in UK guardianship' Lana Foster, Bright World Managing Director
The Bright World Company Conference 2018 was a resounding success. So many of our close partner schools and agents took the time to join us. We all came away feeling very positive about the Guardianship industry and the work that schools and Bright World do together to keep children safe.
