We have a few changes to the layout of our Newsletter this term. Introducing ‘Tip of the Week…’ and ‘Food for Thought…’ (see below). We hope these provide some useful information to you all. If anyone has something they would like us to add to the newsletter, please email us on firstname.lastname@example.org.
‘Tip of the Week’…
If you’re looking for a local or China-wide tour guide, try Lisa. She has advised many parents in the school and helped to organise walking tours, trips to various parts of China and will even customise the perfect holiday or outing for you. Please visit her website for more information www.shanghailisa.com.
To start the New Year, we have lots of events coming up to get you all involved and to make our New Parents feel welcome.
Drinks night for parents and teachers – Saturday, 21st January, 2017
We hope you can all make it along for a casual drink at the Big Bamboo in Jin Qiao (259 Hongfeng Lu) next Saturday. The Community Group will be there from 7.30pm onwards. This will be a very relaxed evening – just turn up and have a drink and/or a bite to eat.
Temple Fair – Sunday, 22nd January, 2017
This event is organised by the School and is always a lovely way to join in the celebrations leading up to the Chinese New Year.
Taobao/Didi Dache course – dates to be announced
The Community Center has kindly offered to provide a workshop at school which will teach you how to use Taobao and the Didi Dache taxi App. The taobao class will teach you how to translate text, sign-up for an account, search and pay, and make returns.
The Didi Dache course will teach you how to get a ride with the most popular and efficient taxi App. The courses will be run separately, and depending on demand, can be run over a few days. Visit the Community Centre website if you would like to see further courses they offer www.communitycenter.cn.
DTL Bus Trip – Monday, 23rd January, 2017
Due to popular demand, the DTL Furniture Store trip is being organised again this term. You are invited to join us on the trip which will take you to their warehouse for a browse…and purchase….and then onto lunch somewhere close by (venue to be announced). The bus will leave from school at 9:00am and be back by 14:00pm. If you would like to join us, please email Charlotte McLuskie on email@example.com.
Welcome Back Lunch – Wednesday 22nd February, 2017
To help settle ourselves in again after Chinese New Year, there will be a Welcome Back Lunch at El Willy’s on The Bund. More information about the lunch will come out through the Class Reps and in the newsletter. We would love to see you all for a nice lunch.
’Food for thought’…
Many have asked what the Community Group does with the money raised. We are working on a Mission Statement to outline the purpose of the Community Group and where the funds can most benefit the wider community. For instance, charities we have funded in the past provide much needed education and healthcare for under-privileged children. More information will follow on this soon.
For now though, there will be lots of other exciting things happening both during the week and the weekends this year! Make sure you stay tuned by reading our news in the school newsletter every week.
