BSME would like to inform members, friends and supporters that Ed Goodwin, Chairman of British Schools in the Middle East, has been awarded the Order of the British Empire for his services to British Education in the Middle East.
The British Embassy in Bahrain issued the following statement:
British Ambassador Iain Lindsay this morning congratulated Ed Goodwin, Principal of St Christopher’s School and Chairman of British Schools in the Middle East, on his OBE in today’s New Year’s Honours List.
“I am delighted that Ed’s many years of valuable work on behalf of British education in Bahrain and the region has been recognised in this way. He is an exceptional educator who richly deserves this award from Her Majesty The Queen. I know that this award will not only be welcomed by St Christopher’s and the British community in Bahrain but also by many across the Middle East. He has led the development of St Christopher’s into one of the best British schools outside the UK and has been a leader of British education in the region, as acknowledged by his peers at other British schools in the Middle East. Many congratulations to Ed.”
Ed Goodwin commented:
“I am delighted to have been honoured in the New Year’s List. Of course, awards such as this are only achieved with the help, support and dedicated work of colleagues, friends and supporters and members of the BSME and school community, including parents and, without doubt, students. I owe deep thanks and appreciation to all of these people for their encouragement and contributions, over so many years, to the quality and reputation of both BSME and St Christopher’s School”
