A hearty welcome back to school to all of our Léman families on behalf of the PHE Department.
We are excited for another great year of sport, learning and fun for all of our Red Pandas. This year we are proud to bring back our entire teaching team in Physical and Health Education. I am honoured to lead our committed and innovative staff in providing engaging and effective PHE classes to our entire student body. I would like to express my appreciation to Felicia Dracz, Scofield Guo, Paul McCarthy and Kuan Li for all the hard work they do for our students.
We have had a great start to classes this week, and have had a really positive response from the students. We remind parents to send their child to Léman with their sun hat and water bottle. This is of particular importance on PHE days.
Next week, we begin practices for our Season 1 CISA Sports. U19 Volleyball will begin practice on Monday from 3:30-5:30 and U15 Football will begin on Tuesday from 3:30-4:30. Student-athletes will be sent home with permission forms on that day outlining their schedule for the season and the expectations for student-athletes. Buses home will be arranged and all parents will be notified of these arrangements beforehand.
We are also reminding everyone to please register online as soon as possible for the Explore China trips. These trips will take place from Sunday, September 8th with students returning to Chengdu on Thursday, September 11th. We have brought in two new trips this year to offer more variety to students and to explore different areas of China.
Grade 6- Ganbao
Grade 7- Four Sisters
Grade 8- Lijiang
Grade 9 & 10- Yangshuo
Grade 11- Kangding and Tagong
All students have been provided with the trip brochures and the link to the online registration which I will also include here.
It is VITAL to get the registration online as soon as possible so that the trips which include flights can be booked.
We will hold an information session for all trips at Meet the Teacher Day on August 31st.
Thank you and GO RED PANDAS!
