Identification Cards and Campus Access - AP2
Our enhanced security arrangements have been in action for two weeks now. I would like to thank all parents and visitors for their cooperation. With the cards worn around neck on the red and blue lanyards, adults on site are now much more easily identified as parents or legitimate visitors.
As a reminder, any parent without a valid school parent card and all visitors needs to follow the procedure outlined below:
1. A form of photo identification card (e.g. driver’s license or ID card) will be requested from you by the guard.
2. The ID will be exchanged for a visitor badge with a red lanyard.
3. Each visitor will be required to sign in and complete all sections in the visitors book.
4. On leaving the campus, each visitor must sign out and exchange the visitor badge for their photo ID.
In addition all parents and visitors on campus are expected to wear their parent card or visitor badge around their necks using the lanyards provided.
Nepal - VND22,032,700 and rising
Our student led campaign to support Nepal following the devastating earthquakes started in earnest this week. By Friday morning, a total of VND22,032,700 had been raised. The fundraising will continue next week. The money will be transferred to the British School, Kathmandu, to be used in their rebuilding projects. This message from Chris Phillips at the school describes how.
At the moment we are working with our current charities because we can be assured that money pledged to our care will result in every single penny being spent on projects that TBS children and students can help them with and see develop over time.
We will be directing our efforts to helping school rebuilding projects for our Dhading project schools, Bungamati DSA school (hearing and sight impaired children) and the Disabled New Life centre. The buildings have been devastated and they served large communities of people who needed them desperately. These projects will benefit children, are related to education, and we know they will give long term benefit to the children and people of Nepal.
In the short term we are trying to get supplies and temporary shelter to these projects as many of the people are staying outside. We know for certain that one of the schools in Dhading has been completely destroyed.
For more information on the projects we work with and for continued updates go to http://www.tbskathmandu.org/extra-curricular/community-service-charitable-work/
The best way for you to assist at the moment is to donate to the cause, which will go towards immediately supporting the projects and for the future rebuilding of earthquake proof buildings. For information on how to donate please go to the following link:
