MESSAGES

  • Outside clothing : As the weather changes and becomes warmer please do make sure your child has a named sunhat, and when appropriate apply sun cream before coming to school. Please also send then with a light rain coat as we try to go outside everyday when it is light rain too.
  • Spare Clothes: Please be reminded that it is very helpful for your child to have a spare set of clothes – underwear, socks, T-shirt and shorts/ dress. As the weather is warmer we are able to spend more time outside and enjoy the water and sand play.
  • Wedding: We will be learning about wedding celebrations as one of our teachers in Early Years is getting married in July. It would be great if children could bring in a family wedding photo so that we can learn about wedding celebrations around the world.
  • Wanted - Jumble items for Tanzania Table at the Garden Party

We are a group of Y.8 & 9 students who are busy fundraising for the projects we will support in November when we travel to Tanzania on our amazing service project. We are looking for your help for contributions of second-hand toys, books and any other small unwanted household items for our Jumble Table at the Summer Garden Party. If you are leaving China or just having a Spring clean, please consider donating your unwanted items to our Tanzania Jumble Table. Please send them in to either the Primary or Secondary reception desks.

Thanks for your support.
