After a concerted and rigorous first term that revealed the multifaceted talents of our students’, they left for their summer break on June 26. It was indeed a pleasure for all of us at The Royal Academy to see their beaming faces when they returned to campus on July 19. In an instant, a campus that was still for over three weeks was thronging with laughter, chatter and the bustle of activities. They shared with us the adventures they had during the term breaks, and they were quite varied. Predominantly, it appeared that they had a wonderful time and they are glad to be back – rejuvenated and ready to tackle Sheljun Phelrim, the creation of new knowledge.
