Year 1: Biel Bertran Molinas, Dave Wu, Rinnosuke Konishi, Purssa Hornsby, Alicia Ying

Year 2: Sebastien Jerga, Eric Chee, Gypsy Hignett, Frederick Cary, Esme McFee

On a wet and wintery day in Hong Kong, Class 3C put on a fabulous assembly about different weather and countries. They read out some of their wonderful poems they have been writing over the past week including acrostic, Haiku and cinaquains styles. Thank you to Mr. Stephen Holt and his class. Photos can be found here and in Firefly.
 

 SECONDARY ASSEMBLY

Our Secondary Commendation certificates for Maths were awarded to:  

Year 7: Mattia Muggeri, Kate Wong

Year 8: Daniel Cheng, Ryan Chu

Congratulations to you all! 

In the Secondary assembly, Mr. Boyd talked about Tootoot which is an anti-bullying software. Tootoot allows our students to talk about bullying with our teachers. They can raise their own concerns or concerns for others, and they can do so anonymously if this is easier. Please take the time to look at this software and to have a chat with your child. You can find more details on Firefly under the 'Houses' section. Mr Boyd also discussed iPad etiquette, and why students must remember that talking and communicating directly to their peers and people around them is just as important (more important!) than starting at a small screen!

 

PICK-UP CARDS

You should now have your child's ‘pick-up’ card which we would like to use from Monday 18 January. You can read more about this important initiative to keep our children safe at this Firefly link.

 

LOCK-DOWN

This week we held a successful Fire Drill with all our children making their way safely to the safety area. None of our teachers or students knew we’d be having the Fire Drill so their impressive and safe evacuation was doubly impressive. Next week we will be holding another important safety drill; a whole school ‘Lock Down’. This is a simulation of an intruder coming into the school. It involves students being held safely in their classrooms with their teachers and TLAs with doors locked and barricaded. Our teachers will be talking about the importance of the Lock Down with our children before it takes place to ensure that they are all calm and ready.

 

ISSF U12 BOYS BASKETBALL TOURNAMENT

Finally, good luck to our Basketball Knights for tomorrow’s Tournament against HKIS and Victoria Shanghai Academy. They are playing at HKIS at 11am if you want to go along and cheer!

 

I hope the weather picks up a little over the weekend and we look forward to seeing you all on Monday.
