We had such a lovely day at the ‘Welcome Back Picnic Social’ last Sunday - many thanks to all who attended and supported the event! We’ve received lots of feedback, and it sounds like everyone came away with something positive, so that’s great news!
This week saw the grand opening of the amazing new Sports Complex at the Secondary Campus - see the Alice Smith School Official Facebook page for photos. MASSIVE THANKS to our four runners (Clare McCulloch, Diamond Ogbeide, Hayley Holle and Tony Heneberry) who represented the parent body in the relay - you did us proud!
Now we’re settled into the term, you may be thinking about getting more involved in the school, so do have a think about volunteering to be a Class Rep (at the Primary campus) or Year Rep (at the Secondary Campus), there are still some vacancies! Both teaching staff and parents find the Reps invaluable as a link for communication and support. For more information on the Primary Class Reps at JB, email Annie in the campus office at firstname.lastname@example.org; for Secondary Year Reps at EP, email Kelly Chivers from the PTA at email@example.com.
Another way to get involved is in helping with PTA events, and we’re thrilled to announce the first Christmas Bazaar Planning Meeting coming up on Thursday 22nd September, 8.15am in Bellamy 2 at the Primary Campus. Pop along with your ideas and suggestions - we’re always on the lookout for fresh inspiration! The Bazaar itself, a fun festive fundraiser for the whole family, is on Saturday 10th December at JB so add it to your calendar (and please note the change to the date from that previously advertised).

STOP PRESS! KLASS dry bags (in house colours) are now available to order from the PTA via uniform shops at both campuses! Ask at the counter for an order form - RM90 for one of these highly practical bags - 10litre capacity; great for trips, swimming, and other sporting activities where you want to keep your kit dry!
There are still tickets available for the 70th Anniversary Platinum Gala Ball on the evening of Friday 11th November. The cost is RM350 per person which includes a 4-course meal and free flow drinks.
