It was fantastic this week as the Grade 3 students kicked off our overnight field trips. The students slept in school and had two activity days. The first was in Selangor State Park where they made their own fires, cooked lunch and engaged in river tracing. Apparently, the children’s lunch was yummy, maybe they can help cook at home from time to time! Having expended a lot of energy, they slept very well and looked fresh and raring to go for day 2, stand-up paddle boarding in Rawang. Thank you to Mrs Ngatai, Ms Nikki, Mr John and Mr Rizal for providing support over the two days and one evening.
Our annual Student-Led Conferences are coming up. These will take place on Saturday 15 April 2023 from 8:30 am – 12:30 am. It is expected that all children attend and share with you what they have learned. You may be asked to play games with them in the classroom or in the PE area, maybe they will encourage you to play an instrument. The day is planned and led by your children. The homeroom teachers will be sending you an appointment for the homeroom time (30 minutes). It is a really fun morning to be involved with your children’s learning and I look forward to seeing everyone on the day.
On Wednesday, 5 April 2023 in the PVO room at 8:10 there will be a Parent Information session for Grade 4 parents. This information session will be about the 1 to 1 laptop programme in Grade 5. Mr. Harvey will be facilitating the meeting.

For people who grew up with yearbooks, they are an annual right of passage that you look forward to; for others, they are fun, but not a part of the end-of-the-school-year experience you had as a student. A lot of conversation has been happening behind the scenes debating and discussing the financial and environmental costs of printing +400 copies of a 150-page yearbook for all grades every year, and as a result, in conjunction with the Yearbook Committee—the wonderful team that created this year’s version of the annual book—we are going to make a change:
