32: Friday 13th May 2011

From the Headmaster
We need your help - 3 minutes of your time
It is vital to obtain the opinion of our community in terms of how the school is doing. At the end of each year we have a questionnaire that will help us gather your opinion and improve. It should take no more than 3 minutes and we would be grateful to have it done by Friday 27th of May.
This short questionnaire will allow you to rate the school on how it is fulfilling its Vision, Mission, Values and Traits, and give your opinion.

Traffic disruption due to OAS General Assembly meeting in El Salvador

Maths workshops
In order to help parents to help their children with their maths homework we will be running some short maths workshops for parents in Grades 1 to 5 next week. Each of the workshops will last for only half and hour and will be held in your child’s classroom. Teachers will concentrate on showing you the methods that we use in school to teach the four basic operations. If these workshops are popular with parents we will plan to do more next academic year. Please see the calendar dates below.

Music concert: The Story Behind the Song, Thursday 19th May, 6.30pm PAC
The final music concert of the year will take place this Thursday.  Musicians from the Upper Primary choir, recorders and violin extracurricular groups will perform together with the secondary band and special guest staff performers.  There will be a great variety of music on offer from Handel's Water Music to the theme from Starwars.  This will also be a fantastic educational experience for everyone, as the story behind each piece of music will be revealed.

Safari Day
The Kinder, Prepa and 1st Grade children enjoyed a very special day last Thursday. The children and teachers came dressed in safari clothes and colours ready to participate in the exciting activities that the teachers and assistants had prepared for them. They started the morning with a discussion and story from Ms Corry and Ms Ana. Then the groups rotated around the classrooms trying to anticipate what was in store for them. It was a great day and a very memorable one!

LP Spanish assembly - Prepa Pashley
In school we feel that the values of politeness, good manners and caring for each are extremely important and we try very hard to help the children to develop these attitudes. Prepa Pashley’s Spanish assembly today was on this theme and the children reminded us of this message in story, role play and song. Well done and thank you to all of the teachers and children responsible for putting this assembly together.

School Council
The last value of the school year will be introduced in UP by our school council next week. This is the value of independence.
