Primary Parent Update - 7 January, 2022

Primary Parent Update - 7 January, 2022

Dear Parents,

Welcome to Term 2 of our academic year. We have had nearly thirty new students join us so far this term – a very warm welcome to our new students and their families. I look forward to meeting parents of new students in person in due course. All students have made a great start to the new term, happy to be in school with their friends and teachers and settling back into the routines and expectations of our school very quickly.

Primary School 2022 Calendar

2022 BSB Primary Calendar cover

Every afternoon next week – week beginning Monday January 10, 3pm – 3.30pm - members of our Primary student council will be selling our wonderful Primary 2022 Calendar at the front of school. The calendar costs 50 rmb and all proceeds go to our nominated Primary charity,  Dew Drops. The calendar features amazing artwork from our Primary students, from students in Early Years right through to our older Year 6 students. Parents can also purchase the calendar through scanning the QR code here:
