On Monday morning around 12:00noon, we received wonderful news; Felice Eric was born at 9:00am. So on behalf of TX community, we would like to congratulate Mum Mina, Dad Giovani and big brother David. Felice Eric is such a cutie pie and everyone at TX is looking forward to meeting him and welcoming him to the TX family. Mina, take rest and see you soon.
On Tuesday, it was time for our first parent lunch of this academic year. We met at Cha Ca La Vong, a restaurant offering only one dish on the menu; a traditional Hanoi fish dish. We highly recommend you to try it out. Welcoming the new mums was the aim but also we were able to catch up with everyone after the summer holiday. We did a round of introductions so the new Mums could see who is who and have the opportunity to introduce themselves as well. It was nice to see how much we know about each other now. There was always someone to add something extra about the person who had just finished introducing herself; there was always someone to say, “not only is she…but also …”. Yes, we have a lot of talented and gifted parents at TX!
On Wednesday, it felt a bit like Christmas as we picked up a bag full of books from our APS campus. They have been donated by the APS PTG for our book swap starting next week. The PTG was very keen to help us when we explained that last year we did not have enough books for our Year 5 and Year 6 children to choose new titles. They promptly replied to our call even though they have a full agenda of events. In the upcoming weeks, we’ll need to find a way to make it up to them.
On Thursday, we reviewed the sign up for the book collection and swap days and we already have 10 volunteers signed up to help. Most of the slots are filled however everyone is always welcome to join and help during the event. Children will bring 2 books to exchange for 1 new book of their choice. The extra donated books will be donated to our community partners. Our community partners are happy to receive books in both English and Vietnamese.
On Friday, not only did we celebrate the moon festival but we also congratulated Mr Ian on his birthday. Well, belated happy birthday wishes but we are sure he enjoyed the belated birthday croissants this morning! They were all gone before you know it. The question now is, who did he share the 5 croissants with or did he eat them all??! The answer next week...maybe!
Have a fantastic weekend and don’t forget to bring your used and well read books to exchange for new books on Monday ;) (Remember, 2 books can be exchanged for 1 book)
