All these donations are welcomed:

On behalf of the school and the Second Harvest Food Bank, we thank you for your support.

Class Observation on Nov 6, Dec 4, 2015 and Jan 8, 2016.

Nov 6 is our first Class Observation Day in this school year.

On any or all of these 3 days, all parents are welcomed to download or pick up a form from the office or Building B corridors, then proceed to sit quietly in their child’s classroom to observe and evaluate the teacher’s classroom teaching. Write down your feedbacks on the form and drop it off to the office. This will help us in giving anonymous feedbacks to the teachers as well as improving the school in general.

As a token of appreciation for your efforts, we will have a lucky draw for the participating parents. When you return the Class Observation Form to Student Center, the Officer On Duty will give you a raffle ticket. Please fill in your name, cell phone number and your child’s name/class on the ticket. We will announce the winner(s) during Chinese New Year Party.

It was so much fun and satisfaction to see the many graduates happily posting with their parents and bidding farewell to their beloved teachers.

We had a wonderful evening watching the live performance of our winning students in the ANCCS competition, congratulating the first recipient of our college scholarship, and best of all, listening to the inspiring speech of each of our nine graduates. We wish them the best of luck in all their future endeavours.

Here are many pictures from Philip to share and treasure the moments.

With our official sent-off to the summer, we will see you all on Friday September 4!

Happy Graduation this Friday!

We worked hard in the past 9 months and had finally made it to the graduation! Make sure you will not miss this happy day.

We will follow the process similar to last year. All students will first report to their classrooms and then join the celebration at the large gym inside the student foyer. We will congratulate our 9 graduating seniors, and thank our teachers for their years of dedicated hard work. We invited two of our ANCCS competition winners to reenact their winning performance, followed by another performance by our student council. We will then give out our first ever scholarship to the student winner, and introduce our next year school board members. The students will spend the next hour receiving their trophies, awards and report cards in the classroom. Please remember to take pictures with best friends and classmates, before diving into the hot summer.

Here is a detail program of the event. See you all at the gym!
