TX Nutrition Coffee Morning

Parents' Corner

Keeping Healthy

It has been a busy week at Tu Xuong!  On Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, three inspectors were visited the school and spent time observing lessons and meeting with different groups including teachers, children and parents.  They were very impressed with what they saw and we look forward to receiving their report in the near future.

TX Nutrition Coffee Morning

On Wednesday, Dr Thao, from International SOS led a coffee morning on the subject of ‘Nutrition’.  A healthy diet is essential for children to learn and grow.  If you were unable to attend, please click on the link below where you can see the slides and download the W.H.O. growth charts that Dr Thao mentioned.

TX Nutrition Coffee Morning

The Rube Goldberg Machine

Rube Goldberg

There is an expression, ‘necessity is the mother of invention’, well that was definitely not the case on Thursday.  A group of children accompanied Mr Mike to join with children from the An Phu primary and secondary campuses to produce a huge Rube Goldberg machine on the AP2 campus.  The idea is to design and build something that completes a simple task in a very complicated way – a video to show the whole machine will be following shortly, but these photos give an idea of how spectacular the event itself was.

Upcoming Events

Lion King Poster

The Lion King

‘I Just Can’t Wait to be King’, ‘Hakuna Matata’ and ‘The Circle of Life’ are just three of the songs that have been echoing through the corridors of TX this week.  The children have learnt their lines and the costumes and stage are looking amazing.  Even if your child is not in Milepost 3, I would urge you to join us on Tuesday evening at 6.00pm (please remember children have to be at school between 5.00 and 5.15pm).  You can download a copy of the programme here, and below is a taster to whet your appetite for next's week spectacular!

CHQ Club Sign Up

Sign up is now closed. Clubs will now be allocated on a completely random basis, and you will receive notification of which clubs your child is in, and details regarding payment, after the holiday. 

One More Day

One of the benefits of being in a group of schools is the opportunity to share in each other’s celebrations and productions.  Earlier this year, I went with a group of students to watch the BVIS Tet Assembly; it was great! Below, is an invite from Mr Holyome, the principal, to all the TX Community to watch their musical production, ‘One More Day’.  I will be there and hope many of you can join me.

Parents’ Corner

The Long Lunch 30.3 (21)

What a year it has been!  It is great to see our parents getting more involved in the life of the school; thank you to those who have been helping out with the costumes and props for the forthcoming  production of the Lion King.  Parent lunches are going from strength to strength and it was great that so many parents were able to enjoy the delights of The Long @ Times Square on Wednesday.  A new feature is included this week in 'Parents' Corner' - 'What's Going on in the City?' Here you can find information about all sorts of events that are coming up suggested by different members of our parent community.  To find out more and see some wonderful photos of last week's events (including Holi), please follow the link:

Student Council Disco

On Thursday 5th May our Student Council will be hosting a disco for all the children to attend.  Children, get your glad rags on because it's time to boogie!  Thank you to our student council for their hard work and efforts that they have been putting in to planning and preparing for their annual whole school event - I am reliably informed that it is going to be the event of the year!

Student Disco

Thank you once again for all your support, and I hope you have a relaxing and enjoyable weekend.
