Dress up days are a great opportunity to express ourselves, so we would like to invite all the children to join us for a Halloween dress-up day on Friday, 29 October. Children can come to school on this day dressed as a character that they enjoy. Costumes do not need to be elaborate or detailed – just something fun (and safe) for the children to wear. The children will be enjoying some fun and games within their own class. However, can we ask families not to send any goodie bags, sweets or treats on this day, please.
The upcoming K1 Parent-Teacher Conferences (PTCs) is now available for sign-up. Please make an appointment via the app at your earliest convenience to secure a time to meet with your child’s teacher.
Frog & Panda Class - 25, 27 October
Dolphin & Monkey Class - 26, 28 October
Please note classes will continue as per normal throughout the PTC weeks. The appointments are about 10-15 minutes long for each child. Please appreciate that these are the dates when we have arranged cover for teachers and we would like to keep to them as much as possible. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us on 2540-0066.
