Children have very much settled into school life and have already adjusted to their daily timetable. Routines and expectations have also been established with the children adjusting well to classroom rules.
It was great to see such a great turn out of parents at last week’s Milepost presentations. We hope the sessions were informative. The information from the presentations is now available on iSams and the school website.
In order to continue to support parents, the school is hosting numerous presentations and workshops. This week’s presentations are as follows:
Sunday 9 September IPC presentation 7.30am to 8.15am
Monday 10 September Arabic presentation 7.30am to 8.15am
Wednesday 12 September Dutch Information evening 7.00pm
Thursday 13 September EYFS (Early Years) presentation 7.30am to 8.15am
We would also like to invite all our parents along to our School in Action next week which will take place on Monday 17 September. The focus for all teachers will be IPC (International Primary Curriculum). The morning will give parents an insight into the teaching of IPC and the terminology used in the classroom. Parents are welcome to visit any classrooms to see children in action and how they learn in different parts of the school. The session will begin at 7.30am and finish at 9.30am. We are looking forward to seeing all our parents at our open morning.
Our first FCS (Friends of Compass meeting) will take place on Tuesday 11th September. All parents are welcome. The meeting will be led by Rebbecca Leslie the school’s FCS Chairperson. The meetings are great fun and a fantastic way to meet other parents.
Thank you to all parents who attended last week’s leadership assembly. At the assembly, Mrs Hunashi announced the school’s new Head boy and Head girl, House Captains, Student Leaders, Library and Playground Leaders. Once again we look forward to listening to our students’ ideas. Well done to all our student representatives.
I would like to end this message by thanking parents for a very positive start to the school term and for ensuring that the teachers’ jobs are made easier by supporting the school’s policies. Please remember to remain in communication with the teacher, informing the school of any issues which may have an impact on the child’s behaviour or learning.
