ES Off to a Great Start
Posted 08/24/2017 10:52AM

Dear Parents,

We've had an excellent start to the new year.

Here are some of the highlights of the first week back:

Orientation and Ice Cream Social - We warmly welcomed our new families to the SIS community. Parents had the opportunity to learn more about our extensive After School Activities programme, buy additional school kits, meet the Parent Support Association and sample the delights from our new catering company Nom Nom.

Meet the Teacher afternoon saw students finding out who their new teachers are for the year. There was definitely an excitement in the air and parents received important information about schedules, contacts etc.

Curriculum Night offered brief information about SIS's adoption of the International Baccalaureate Primary Years Programme and what this means in terms of Teaching and Learning as well as a quick overview of the authorisation process. Parents then had an in-depth presentation with their child's homeroom teacher about what to expect over the course of the year. Both sessions stressed the importance of the parent, student, teacher partnership and how working together will give your children and our students the best opportunity for success.

Parents and teachers have commented that we've had a positive smooth start, despite the challenges of the construction outside the Jing Shan campus. To continue ensuring speedy traffic flow, we'd like to remind you to only drop off your children in the designated areas.

Finally, all the adults that visit our school are expected to wear yellow lanyards. If you do not have one of these, please visit the office at Parkside and talk to one of extremely helpful office assistants Sonja and Laurie.

Best wishes,

Harish Kanabar

Elementary School Principal

PS There will be many more parent learning opportunities over the course of the year so please make sure you check as well as this newsletter!
