Date: March 5th, 2018
To: TES Board of Directors
Petition by parents to reinstate Mr. Stuart Glascott as Head of British Secondary and High School, Taipei European School as soon as possible
Many parents of British Secondary and High School Section have serious doubts about the integrity of Mr. Gatley’s decision and explanation to fire Mr. Stuart Glascott suddenly. This is evident in the town hall sessions hosted by Mr. Gatley on Feb 21st, 2018.
Many of us have known Mr. Stuart Glascott for many years. He is a very experienced and competent principal. He has passion for his job and cares for his students. He is also highly regarded by many parents and students. His sudden firing has caused a lot of distress and distrust of Mr. Gatley amongst the parents. It has also caused confusion amongst the students and will certainly lower the morale of the teaching staff. All these have had negative impacts on the learning environment for our children. We, as parents, would just like our children to learn in a stable and nurturing environment. We hereby, would like to appeal earnestly to every member of TES Board of Directors to consider reinstating Mr. Stuart Glascott, as Head of British Secondary and High School, Taipei European School, as soon as possible.
Jointly signed by parents of British Secondary and High School, Taipei European School
陳 情 書
受文者：台北歐洲學校董事會 (TES BOD)
主旨： 請求恢復Mr. Stuart Glascott 於英國部中學暨高中部之校長職務
本校眾多家長對於CEO, Mr. David Gatley 決定解任本校英國部中學暨高中部之校長Mr. Stuart Glascott有諸多疑慮。並且，在2018年2月21日當天對家長所召開的說明會中，Mr. David Gatley仍舊無法提供針對該解任的合理理由或令人信服的解釋。
Mr. Stuart Glascott是一位非常有經驗、有能力的校長，他對教育工作的熱情及對學生的關心與付出皆是有目共睹的，因此他在師生與家長間備受喜愛與尊敬。此一無預警解任案不僅造成家長們對Mr. David Gatley的高度不信任，以及學生們的不解與困惑，同時也必定會造成教職員間的士氣低落。這些在在對孩子的教育環境都有著負面的影響。身為家長，我們只希望孩子能在穩定的教養環境中成長學習，也因此，我們誠摯冀望 董事會成員們能儘早撤回此解任案，讓Mr. Stuart Glascott 恢復其於英國部中學暨高中部所擔任的校長之職務。
