Parent Group Update – 23/9/16

23 September 2016

This week at TX, for parents, it was mainly about books; receiving books, counting books, sorting books and more!  To know more about it, just read our weekly “parents’ post”.

  • TX Parent Group 230916 2
  • TX Parent Group 230916 1
  • TX Parent Group 230916

As I’m writing those lines, the final count of books has not yet been made but we are around 450 books! It’s an amazing number. 

This year we collected more books for our MP3 children and we have to extend our gratitude again to An Phu Secondary campus (APS) as, after receiving a full bag of books the previous week, a teacher sent us around 20 more books!  We are also thankful for the form teachers in APS who informed their students about the book swap at TX.  As Mr Mincher mentioned to Y7 parents during the introduction meeting, we are the same school, so it’s also nice to see we get support from each other and receive updates on the activities at each campus.

During the week, we had a wonderful team of volunteers who welcomed children and parents in the lobby during the mornings and afternoons.  They were joined by children from Y3, Y5 and Y6 who wanted to help.  Well done to all parents and children who have been involved this week.  You’ve done a great job. 

We are excited about next week’s book swap, however we’ll need a few more volunteers to run the stall.  The online sign up is still available here:


The days and times that we would like more volunteers for are:

  • Thursday 29th September in the morning – 7.40am to 8:00am (we have 1 volunteer, but 2 would be better)

  • Friday 30th September in the morning – 7.40am to 8:00am (this slot time is empty so if we cannot find a volunteer the book swap won’t open at this time)

If you drop your child at school, don’t feel shy and just pop up to help as well.  Some parents did this week when they saw an extra help was needed and we are happy they did.

Thursday night was An Phu Primary campus (APP) social evening at An Café in District 2.  Three members of TX community took part in the event.  They had a great time getting to know parents and teachers from APP and APS. 

On Friday, Eva and Duyen took part in a community service meeting with the APP and APS Parent Teacher Groups (PTGs) regarding organising a “Worldwide coffee morning”.  Ms Clover, the BIS community service project manager and Ms Deirdre introduced the idea to replicate this event created by a UK based charity called Macmillan.  They want to raise awareness and funds for people with cancer.  You can read more about it here;


So in next week’s newsletter we’ll update you on the event (When? Where? What?). 

Before wishing you a wonderful weekend, we remind you that the 20 giant lanterns are still on display until mid October at 30 Bo Bao Tan Thang street (Tan Phu District).  The structures are around 8 metres tall, they are shaped as animals and they are better to be seen at night when illuminated. 


Have a lovely weekend,

Anne on behalf of the parent group.
