This year’s incoming class of new employees represented locales all around the globe. Under any normal year, this would have been a significant logistical challenge to relocate families to Taiwan, help them establish everything from bank accounts to Costco memberships, and prepare them to teach our KAS students. But 2021 is anything but a normal year. Thankfully, our experienced team was up to the challenge, and on October 14th, the last of our new arrivals walked through our doors.
It was cause for celebration, and the PTA was ready! With balloons and decor to rival a gala event, Kaohsiung’s newest Dragons were met with a panoply of fanfare fit for these world-weary travelers. Each new employee was recognized by name and gifted treats from the PTA leadership, including handmade pineapple cakes – a Taiwan delicacy!
