What a fantastic day!!!!
Community Day on Saturday was a hugely successful school event that was enjoyed by everyone who attended. It was great to see how the planning team had used their experience of previous events to plan the layout, ensuring the whole school had an exciting buzz as children, parents and staff enjoyed the occasion.
Every year this event has got better and better, and Saturday’s event was fantastic. Congratulations to our PTG who have worked tirelessly with our school administration, especially the Estates Department, to set up and manage this impressive event.
I will also say a massive thank you to our Estates Department - especially the maids, gardeners and technicians - who worked hard before the event, but even more importantly worked on Saturday evening and Sunday to tidy up the school such that this morning coming into school it was as though there had been no Community Day!
The rest of the great raffle prizes were drawn on Saturday evening and a list of the winners is posted on the School Office door and in this linked folder.
To collect your prize, please bring your winning ticket to the School Office.
Nord Anglia Education Parent Survey
Nord Anglia Education’s Parent Survey was sent to parents last week and so far we have responses from 18% of parents. We pay close attention to the feedback from this survey and use it to make improvements so as to better serve our school community. Therefore it would be really helpful if more parents could complete the survey and share their opinions on the school with us.
The survey can be found here.
The closing date for responses is Monday 13th February 2017.
The survey contains questions about many aspects of the school’s management and takes around 15 minutes to complete. Responses are analysed by our central Nord Anglia team and their findings are presented to each school. The data identifies areas for improvement, and we will share the results and our action plans going forward with the PTG.
High School Srivikorn Campus
Last week the first of the science laboratories was installed at the Srivikorn site. This allowed myself and several other staff members to visit the new facility and ensure it meets our specifications. Following our science teachers’ visit we have made some modifications to the room, as designs always look a little different to the real thing. Having made these adjustments, now all 11 laboratories can be completed quickly.
It is great to see how fast the site is developing and all work continues to hit our deadlines, which is fantastic.
Car Park - Idling Engines!!
I know our school has very limited car parking space especially when school ends at 2.30pm and everyone heads home. One issue that appears to be getting worse is that some cars parked in the car park, both in the morning and the afternoon, are leaving their engines idling (on) while they are parked. Idling engines generate a lot of fumes which everyone has to walk through when entering and leaving school.
The PTG has raised this as a concern and we shall be working together with the student community to raise awareness of this problem so that cars are not left with engines running in the car park.
There will be a House competition across the Primary School to raise awareness, with our student body taking a very active part to ensure that everyone knows that they should not be in the cars with the engine on. Please see the KS1 and KS2 sections of the newsletter for more information.
Please bear this in mind when you are next parked at school.
