Many events took place at the Tu Xuong Primary campus this week including the TXtravaganza, our annual summer concert. Mr Robbie did a wonderful job of bringing together our TX musicians and choirs in a lively concert on Wednesday evening. Apart from the two choirs and orchestra, the audience were entertained by the string group and brass ensemble, the chamber choir and solo performances from Andrew Vu and Yu Gyeong Kang. Congratulations to all our performers who worked incredibly hard in their clubs this term. Thank you to Mr Robbie, Ms Heather, Ms Alice, Mr Mike and Ms Julia for their hard work in preparing the children for the concert.

On Thursday morning, in was the turn of our Foundation Stage children as they performed on the stage in their summer production, ‘Let’s Get Fruity!”. The audience were amazed at the level achieved by our youngest members of the TX campus. All the F3 children had speaking parts; they told the story of the naughty animals who stole the fruit only to return it after some careful negotiation. Once again the costumes were impressive, especially the Foundation Stage 1 and 2 children who dressed as animals, and I must thank our talented teaching assistants for their wonderful creativity. The teachers too deserve a great deal of praise for directing our young actors and actresses; not forgetting Mr Robbie who has been working with the children during their music sessions.
Other events this week include the maths tournament held at BVIS and the LAMDA acting exams held at the An Phu Secondary Campus. I must congratulate the teams of children involved.
Sustainability was the focus of our assembly today. Year 5 explained how and why we must save our planet including the animals. One such animal, the endangered pygmy loris has been a focus of research for the Year 5 children. They are aiming to raise money to donate to the EAST project to build an enclosure to help rehabilitate the lorises which are saved from captivity. All parents are welcome to visit the Rainforest Café in the foyer next week which is being organised by Year 3. On sale at the café will be some of the EAST merchandise.
I would like to finally say a big thank you to our TX parents for inviting me to afternoon tea at Villa Song last Saturday. I was overwhelmed by the lovely flowers and kind comments made by parents and children.
