As I have spoken of before, our vision at NAIS is to give outstanding opportunities to students so that they can thrive now and in the future. The opportunity to perform and to challenge themselves are great examples of how we need to make our students Personally Ambitious. Work has already started in the primary school to plan our calendar for next year and we are very keen to build on our Ambitious programme of opportunities for all our students.
Part of the planning for next year includes improvements to our building and facilities. I was able to share with our Primary students two improvements to the playground that will be made over the summer holidays. Our current climbing frame will be replaced with a new wooden structure and I am confident that this will provide the children a more modern play experience. Secondly we will be adding a second play equipment structure on the grass between the Astro turf and the secondary building. This new ‘Trim Trail’ will be a low structure that is designed for children to climb, travel and explore. Both will be made from wood, as we want to move towards more natural look throughout our outdoor spaces, as started in Early Years. When I displayed the designs in the Primary assembly, they were very well received by the children so I know they are excited by the changes.
I want to give some advanced notice about the last Thursday of term (21st June), as on this day we will be holding two events that involve parents. Firstly, in the morning (9-10:30am) we will have our ‘Primary in Review’ assembly in Sports hall B. This is our annual review of the year and will celebrate the achievements of all students and have performances from the choirs and musicians. All parents are invited to attend as we share our memories of this year. In the afternoon, we will be having the class parties. I will be sending home a letter with details next week, but please do look out for information from your class representatives about arrangements specific to your child’s class.
Have a great weekend
