Important News about San Roberto Institute

We are proud to announce that Instituto San Roberto will join Nord Anglia Education, the world’s leading premium schools organization, along with the majority of other Meritas schools. This is exciting news because Nord Anglia Education’s commitment to the highest quality education tightly aligns with the Meritas approach to personalized global learning. This move brings together some of the best educators and administrators in the world and will mean more opportunity for students.

As part of Nord Anglia Education, our students and staff will:

  • Be part of a vibrant global community of 32,300 students and more than 6,500 teachers and teaching support staff across 15 countries and 41 schools.
  • Benefit from the support of world-leading educational experts and access to bespoke learning platforms.
  • Participate in exclusive experiences such as the Global Orchestra, a selective summer music immersion program, and learning expeditions designed to support your child to develop the knowledge, skills and behaviors to succeed in school and beyond.

While this transition takes shape, your student’s education and wellbeing, as always, will remain our top priority.

This year’s SLRP is open until July 31. All interested employees are strongly encouraged to refer to the HR’s Intranet for more comprehensive information.  Please review FY 2015 Policy and Procedures, Frequently Asked Questions and How to Apply.

Personal Finance and Investment in the Foreign Service

On June 9, the Transition Center held a Personal Finance Webinar. The presenter William Carrington is not only a financial advisor and owner of a financial planning firm in Arlington VA, but is also a State Department EFM with a true understanding of the Foreign Service lifestyle.

He presented and fielded questions on topics such as: understanding and avoiding the most common financial pitfalls in the FS context, planning for a successful retirement, effective investing in the TSP, clarifying what works in modern investing, staying informed while overseas, how and when to use a good financial advisor, planning for children’s education and more.

If you haven’t had a chance to attend the webinar, note that the Carrington Financial Planning Firm made the 89-page presentation available on OpenNet. Please visit our SharePoint to access the link or contact your CLO.
