It has been another busy week at the AP1 campus. We were delighted on Monday to welcome back our
Music students who, under the carful guidance of Ms Beth, participated in the FOBISIA Arts Carnival hosted by Shrewsbury School, Bangkok. The event was a major success culminating in a magnificent concert on Sunday and according to the feedback from Ms Beth, the students and the parents in attendance, it was superb.
We are delighted our children could be part of such an event. As one event finishes the focus is already shifting to the Spring Concert on Wednesday 1
April. This is a wonderful evening with all three campuses participating. If you are a parent of the children in any of the choirs or orchestras taking part, please do make sure you have purchased your tickets from Ms Trang our AP1 cashier.
As you are no doubt aware, the temperature has risen in recent weeks and we would ask you please to make sure that your child comes to school every day with their hat and water bottle, both essential items with the current hot temperatures that are set to continue.
Our Terrace Café is proving popular with parents and teachers and I would urge you, if you have not already done so to pop by and grab a coffee, pastry, smoothie or juice. We have some seating available overlooking the field where parents can meet while waiting for children at the end of the day or just after drop off. It might prove to be the ideal venue for class coffee mornings! A reminder please that no children should be buying items from the Terrace Café unless they are with an adult.
Clubs and Activities are drawing to a close and next week will be the last week of clubs for this term. It has been another successful term with children able to choose from a wide variety of clubs. While we are not yet finished with Term 2 clubs, Term 3 clubs are already being finalised and the booklet will be shared with parents on the 9th of April. More details will be shared with you in next week’s newsletter.
Our parents evenings will be held on April 7
. For the first time we have used an
online sign up system
and the feedback to date has been very positive. Sign up has been extended until Tuesday, March 31
at 5pm so if you have not already done so, please make sure you book a slot online with your child’s class teacher. The picture below is a screen shot of accessing the parent sign up portal. Just a few clicks and the appointment is made!
It is always a pleasure to walk around the campus and visit the classrooms where our children are engaged in a plethora of learning experiences. This week has been no different. Activities have ranged from science investigations taking place in year 6, persuasive letter writing in year 3, community service partners visiting year 5, Foundation Stage investigating dinosaurs, a number of classes preparing for upcoming assemblies, t-ball matches on the field, band performances in Music lessons and a host of other amazing learning opportunities. Learning could never be described as 1 or even 2 dimensional here at BIS with our teachers always striving to make the learning experiences for the children as exciting, dynamic and challenging as they can and they have certainly succeeded this week. No doubt these learning experiences will continue as our teachers continue to go the extra mile for our students.
Wishing you all a relaxing weekend.
Mr Simon Higham, Head Teacher
