T2W9 – 10 Feb 2023
Photo-taking Feb. 14 – 17
Students will take their class and individual photos next week. Form Teachers will notify you and the students of the date of photo-taking for their class.
Please ensure your children are dressed in their winter uniform (not PE uniform) with black shoes on their photo-taking day. Our G6 students will also take their graduation photos in graduation gowns.
Students are reminded to wear their regular uniform with black shoes on regular school days and PE uniform with long PE pants on PE days. Students can come to school in their own winter jackets in cold weather.
Lost and Found Items
Our Lost and Found Room is full of unclaimed items – uniforms, water bottles, swim gear…
These items will be displayed for parents and students to retrieve on the day of the Student-led Conferences. All unclaimed items will be donated or disposed of after April 5.
Please be reminded to label students’ items with their names and current classes so the lost items can find their way to their owners.
Save the Date: Student-led Conferences (March 18th)
Student-led conferences are a great opportunity for students to share their learning with parents. Students will be sharing their portfolios which demonstrate what they have been learning and provide reflections on work and units that have been completed. Student-led conferences provide many benefits: responsibility, self-reflection, goal setting and leadership and communication skills.
This year the student-led conferences will take place on the morning of the 18th March. Parents will sign up for a timeslot through SchoolsBuddy. More information will be shared at a later date.

Poems by Students
In English and Chinese classes, students throughout primary school have been introduced to a selection of poems from different times and cultures which enhanced their understanding of the world, people and oneself. They read and learnt to appreciate poems.
Our students are very creative in writing poems. Please enjoy the following pieces from our Poetry unit.
Animals awake from slumber
Blooming flowers fill the land
Daffodils sway in the wind
As if they were welcoming
The arrival of spring
by Chen Yun YANG (G6 Maple)
There was a girl names Lydia,
And she took a flight to India.
She loved the flight.
But got into a fight.
The crew threw her to Abyssinia.
by Rohan KRISHNA (G4 Angsana)
Red, orange, yellow,
Green, blue, indigo, violet.
I can see a shiny rainbow.
Is it a colourful banana floating in the sky?
Is it a colourful boat sailing in the sea?
Is it a colourful bridge connecting the clouds?
Is it a colourful moon shining in the night?
by Buyi WANG (G2 Maple)
