This is our final newsletter for this term. With only three more school days to go, the finish to Term 1 has been full of excitement.
Our St. Mary’s Cathedral Service was wonderful and I would like to thank Reverend Cheah and the St. Mary’s community for making us feel so welcome and supporting us with this special event. Thanks also to all of the staff, students and parents, including our PTA, who participated and helped with the service, coordinated by Ben James.
The PTA Christmas Bazaar at JB Campus tomorrow promises to be a terrific event. Proceeds from this year’s bazaar will go towards supporting both the school and the two PTA charities chosen for this year - Rumah Jaireh and the Home of Peace. Please come along and join in the fun. There is always a great variety of stalls at the bazaar, a wonderful opportunity to browse at leisure and find special gifts for loved ones.
Our final event before we break is the 'Carols Round the Tree' concert on Tuesday 15th December commencing at 6.00 pm at the Primary Campus, Jalan Bellamy. Come along with the family and enjoy the festive spirit of a good old sing-a-long.
KLASS are 2015 ISAC Swimming Champions! Last weekend, we hosted the annual ISAC Swimming Competition at our EP pool. This was an excellent event, with over 500 swimmers participating over the two days. Thanks to Mr Bromley and all the staff and parents who assisted and supported with this event and congratulations to our swim team on their excellent performances across all age groups to claim the overall trophy.
Another reminder to please share the word with any friends from the school you may know in the UK about our 70th Anniversary Alumni Get-together in London on Saturday, 16th January 2016. We are looking forward to meeting up with KLASS alumni at this event.
It is great to see the number of Twitter users increasing weekly. I encourage you to catch up with some of the latest activities on the campuses by following our social media sites. These sites and our Parent Portal are an important link and source of information about school life and school events.
This week we shared with you the Academic Calendar 2016 - 2017 and an introductory letter from Tom Verity, who will join us as Primary Principal in August 2016.
Please remember that we will close both campuses to students at 12:00 midday next Wednesday, 16th December. Buses will depart the campuses from midday. Please remember to collect your child/ren at midday if you use private transport. We will be finishing the term with a Christmas lunch at both campuses for all staff, teaching and non-teaching, between 12:00 and 13:00.
Please be aware that the school campus offices will be closed during the holiday period from Monday 26th December 2015 to Monday 2nd January 2016.
My sincere best wishes for a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.
