MESSAGES

  • We look forward to welcoming you at our ‘Meet and Greet’ meeting on Monday 21 August from 6.00-8.00.  There will be a brief ‘Welcome’, followed by two sessions with class teachers in the classrooms; one at 6.30 and another at 7.15.  This will give you the opportunity to meet teachers if you have children in different year groups.  It will allow you also to ask any questions and meet other parents of children in your class.  

We would like to ask that children do not attend the Meet & Greet event. The event is targeted at adults and the timing is late for the children on a school night.  We fully understand that for some NEW parents, you do not yet have child care and so may have to bring your children. If you are bringing your child, please be responsible for your child at all times as they cannot be left unsupervised in school or the playground. You may want to bring something to keep them quietly occupied while the teacher is talking.  Thanks for your support and understanding.

  • Homework will be given out on Wednesdays and expected in on Mondays. 
  • Please ensure that your child has the correct school uniform. In particular please ensure your child is wearing black shoes. Girls should wear plain white socks and boys should wear black or grey socks. You can review the school’s uniform policy at http://www.nordangliaeducation.com/our-schools/shanghai/puxi/our-students/student-life/our-school-uniform
  • Please remember to send in and label your child’s snack box and water bottle, as well as a hat during the hot weather.
  • ECA and BISCAP sign-up is available on the school website and confirmation letters will follow. Both programmes will begin on Monday 4 September.
