Next week is an incredibly busy week at the EP campus and so my message this week is really focused on these happenings. Following the final rehearsals this weekend, we are looking forward to seeing as many people as possible at our Summer Concert on Monday evening. Please click here for further details.
On Thursday evening, we hold the annual MAD Show which promises to be a wonderful event. The work of our students is of such a high standard and this is an opportunity to come together as a community to share and celebrate their hard work and talent. We are honoured that Her Excellency, Vicki Treadell, CMG MVO, the British High Commissioner to Malaysia, will be attending and opening the event and also by the presence of Ms. Caroline Russell, Chief Executive Officer of BOH Plantations, a long time supporter of the Arts at the Alice Smith School. Please click here for further details and we do hope you are able to join us.
Also on Thursday we will be holding the House Summer Sports Festival and you will have received a letter and schedule for the day’s activities earlier this week. Please do come along to support your children and their House in the range of different competitions: water polo, badminton, touch rugby and rounders. Thank you to our PE Team for their organisation and also to our Key Stage 5 students who will be developing their leadership skills by organising and officiating the games.
We also have two focuses for the whole week. Firstly, it is Charity Week, to raise funds for the upcoming Trips Week. Each day will have a different focus and many fun, interesting and challenging activities have been developed by the students. All the year group trips include significant work with the local community and all monies raised next week will go towards this work. For example, during the Year 8 trip to Bintan, students will be helping to develop an ICT room for a local school, donating computer equipment and also painting a mural. Year 10, during their trip to Tioman, will be continuing their support of the turtle sanctuary and the community of Juara. As a follow up from the many information sessions for parents about the trips, if you have any remaining questions, please do not hesitate to contact the trip leader who will be able to answer any queries.
Next week is also Transition Week, with Year 6 students and parents coming into school to find out more about life in the Secondary Campus. We look forward to welcoming you to Equine Park and the Key Stage 3 team have planned a range of different experiences to make sure your time with us is well spent next week and that you feel well prepared and confident about joining us in September.
Finally, once again, thank you to all parents who participated in the annual Parent Survey. You should have received a letter today with a summary of the feedback, and full responses can be found on the Parent Portal. Please do take some time to read these documents and I look forward to working with you to further improve our campus.
Have a lovely weekend
