Our Year 4 adventurers had lots of fun, out and about on their 3 day trip to Long Hai this week. I was lucky enough to spend all day with our explorers on Tuesday. The day started early with a morning trip to the beach; this is where the children’s skills in design and architecture shone through as they all took part in the sandcastle building competition. Amazing designs were seen with many castle features such as moats and battlements.
After a leisurely lunch, the problem solving challenge began. Teams were given the task of making a ‘marble run’ out of cardboard, pipe cleaners and straws. Perseverance was needed as the children tried to make the marble reach the end in the longest possible time.
I left the children after a session in the hotel swimming pool. What an excellent way to end the day! Thank you to Ms Tam, Ms Van Anh, Ms Emma and Mr Mike for their superb organisation and congratulations to our Year 4 explorers for their exemplary behaviour and sense of adventure.
Congratulations also go to our four mathematicians who represented the TX Campus in the recent FOBISIA Maths Competition in China. Yu Geong, Shao Fu, Andrew and Jeanette came back victorious after coming 4
out of 31 international schools. This is a super achievement - Well done to our gifted mathematicians and Mr Rob!
Parent and Teacher Meetings
Next Thursday we have parent and teacher meetings here at the TX Campus. Please sign up for a time slot to meet with your child’s teachers. The sign-up sheets are displayed in the foyer.
Security at TX
In the light of our child protection audit and staff training which was held last week, I would like to remind you all about our security procedures. All parents should carry their child’s security card with them and present the card when asked at the school gate. Any parent who does not have their security card will be asked to sign in and wear a visitor’s badge. Visitors entering school during the school day will be escorted to the office for assistance.
