Primary News

Maths workshops
Many parents attended our Maths Workshops for parents last week and reported that they had learnt new ways to help their children with their maths at home. Many thanks to the teachers for taking the time to organise these valuable opportunities for our parents to learn too! On Monday 4th March 1st Grade teachers will be holding their Maths workshop for parents from 7.14 - 7.45am in their classrooms. Please remember to use the emergency carpark if you are attending this event.

World Maths Day
Wednesday 6th March is World Maths Day and children in the primary school will be taking part in a range of maths based activities to encourage their enjoyment and appreciation of this area of the curriculum.

5th Grade camping night
Unusually the children from 5th Grade are being permitted to have their camping night during the week! This is because they are fulfilling a part of the PE and Science primary curriculum while they are away with participation in outdoor activities and scientific investigations into forces and habitats.

Careers Day
This coming Friday, March 8, we will have “Careers Day” in Upper Primary. Boys and girls will be able to come to the school with appropriate clothing of the different professions that exist and/or what they dream about being when they grow up.

All students of Upper Primary (2nd to 5th grade) are invited to participate. Don’t miss it!!

The cost to participate is US$1.00. The money will be used for the grades’ saving funds.

Bicultural Schools Arts Festival
The Bicultural Arts Festival brings together students from different schools to experience and produce Art (art, music, drama, dance, etc.)

We believe that students will have an enhanced experience by working together with students from other schools, as well as by participating in a festival which is put on combining the resources of the schools involved.

The Upper Primary is taking part in this great activity with the Choir and some Strings players. All students are working hard to put together a good repertoire of songs learning about the beauty of music and making new friends.

The Bicultural Festival Concert will take place on Saturday 9th of March in Teatro Presidente at 6:00 PM. Entrance is free!!
