A request from Mr Gibson to please complete the e-Notice on the Gateway that he has sent you, if you have not already done so. This e-Notice relates to ukulele loans as the students will begin learning to play these instruments in Music lessons soon.
Our Student Council have been inspired by a teacher’s visit to Impact HK who are a local NGO who support people who are less fortunate than us. Impact HK believes that kindness is very important so it looks to help people in poverty through finding people jobs and affordable housing, sports groups and language lessons. The Student Council will be presenting to the school at Golden Book on Monday 12th November. They will be asking the students if you have any towels, water bottles, tinned or dry food and adult clothing that you no longer need. If you do, there will be a collection box in the foyer. We thank you in advance for your support.
Our latest Scholastic Book Club is still running! Go to http://world-schools.
Please place your order online by November 23rd, 2018.
