We are fortunate within our family of 42 schools to have some amazing facilities around the world which are available to our students. You should also have received an email from Mr Cooklin on Wednesday with an update on school developments and improvements.

SECONDARY ASSEMBLY – Focus on the impact of bullying – Click here for Mr Boyd’s presentation

Mr Boyd covered a very important topic in today’s Secondary Assembly: bullying. This is something that we take very seriously and we are constantly reinforcing to our students the impact that bullying has on children, whether they are being bullied or are the bullier. Please take the time to review Mr Boyd’s presentation and to discuss this important topic with your child.

 

WINDSOR BOUNCE-A-THON RAISES $16,000+

The whole school – teachers and students – got on the Windsor Bouncy Castles last week in support of Windsor House’s local charity, The Heep Hong Society. As well as being a great fun end to the first half-term, we raised an impressive HK$16,000. We look forward to seeing what the next House event will be!

 

VISIT BY THE CAMBRIDGE EXAMINING BOARD

As our Year 8s move towards the start of their Cambridge IGCSE years (Years 10 and 11), we will be welcoming the assessment team from Cambridge to review the readiness of our facilities and teachers for these qualifications. Assistant Principal, Mr Bishop, has been working with the team to demonstrate the qualifications of our teachers (many of whom have taught IGCSEs successfully for several years) and our teaching facilities.

FOOTBALL – Y5/6 NAIS Knights – Click for our team photo

Our Year 5 and 6 Football Team had a great tournament at Kings Park this week. They made it into the Plate Semi-Finals with wins over Shatin Junior and hard-fought draws against Glenealy and GSIS.
