Over the holiday, I met up with my sister in Singapore and we spent ten days enjoying our time together, reminiscing about old times and talking about our childhood and family lives. Meeting in Singapore was also a special location, as I had previously lived there for nine years, and my sister had visited me there on many occasions. This time, it was just a meeting point for the two of us. When we choose to live 6000 miles from home, moments with family members are to be cherished and enjoyed. One of the reasons for living in Vietnam is the importance you all place on family life and this has been witnessed over the few weeks with the preparations for and indeed the celebration of Tet. We all hope that you too managed to spend quality time with your family members and create new memories to become the conversations of your future. Great childhood memories, as my sister and I recently discovered, truly do last a lifetime. Making special moments and times for your children and parents, for each generation of your family, is priceless.
As each term progresses, the whole Primary team becomes increasingly excited at the prospect of opening the Primary Building, across the Royal City boulevard opposite our current building. We have now outgrown our current home and so will be moving into the new one. You will read much about this in the coming weeks but we wanted to let you know about a competition launched today in our Primary Assembly. The children will have two weeks to design a safety floor space to host the playground equipment. The current climbing frame is on orange and blue flooring but we can design it how we like. Please do encourage your children to be bold in their designs but make them simple enough so their message stands out clearly. Could it be an aquatic theme, a road map, an airport…the possibilities are endless. Their design will be seen by everyone. Good luck!
