For those returning from holidays, we hope everyone had a wonderful time. The children were certainly keen to share their tales of the many adventures and activities they got up to.
With only 8 full weeks ahead before the end of the year, we have a jam-packed schedule ahead of us. I would ask you all to ensure you stay up to date with class and school events by checking in with Seesaw, reading the weekly learning letters and weekly updates.
The first event I would like to draw your attention to is the Digital Citizenship Workshop scheduled for next Thursday, May 9th. It will take place in the Junior Campus Gym, beginning at 8.30am and is open to all parents. It is extremely important that parents are vigilant about the online safety of their children and this workshop will guide you as to how to do this. A reminder letter with more details was sent to all parents yesterday.
The second event that is approaching is our PTG AGM taking place on Thursday May 16th. This event is for both the primary and secondary Parent Teacher Groups and the committee will share what events have been run this year, what monies have been raised and how this has been distributed. The PTG committee will need new volunteers next year so should you be interested in stepping up, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or speak to current committee members, Lily, Nicky G, Nandini, Eng Wan, Dawa and Ruchika to express your interest. We are keen for new volunteers to come on board and help to build an even stronger school community.
Other events this term at the Junior Campus include our Junior Production later in May, the Aquathlon in June and a host of other events. Please do scroll down to the Dates in the Diary Section for more details.
Classes for Next Year
Each year, we look collectively as teachers as to the mix of students in each class and whether we need to mix the classes. This is done if we feel there is an imbalance of gender, nationality, ability or other. This year I am pleased to share that all teachers feel the classes can remain as they are for the following year groups; Year 3 Year 4 and Year 5. Year 6 will be mixed as they move into secondary. New students to the school will be placed carefully in classes to ensure that a good balance is maintained.
For those that ordered hard copies of photographs from Pret a Portrait, the first batch have arrived. We are sorting them and will distribute them to classes on Monday. Please note, more are expected so if you don’t receive your orders, they will most likely be in the next delivery.
A new term and new events for our PTG. The biggest and most important, the upcoming AGM. Please make sure you click on this link to find out more information about this event and the Parent Lunch that is also coming up.
