Welcome back to the 2018-2019 school year. I am delighted to join the school and be part of your students’ school experience.I hope you have had a wonderful summer holiday. It has been great witnessing our students' excitement as they explored their new learning spaces for the year. The students have also been busy reconnecting with old friends as well as making new ones; truly modelling the IB learner profile attributes of being caring and open-minded.
I would like to take this opportunity to introduce you to our new highly experienced and talented staff in the Elementary School:
KG.1 Ms Sophia Bustamante
Performing Arts - Tony Palumbo
ESL - Ms Sarah Herbert
Thursday 23rd August, 5:30 pm Changi Hall - Elementary School Meet the Teachers Night - A chance to meet your child’s teacher and find out more about classroom routines.
More detailed information on this evening will be sent home soon.
Middle School News
Welcome to the new school year. We are underway and everybody has fitted in very nicely. Some great new students and a good increase in student numbers from last year. Again nice to see so many new and inquisitive faces.
Speaking of new people, we welcomed a number of new teachers to Paterson Campus this year:
Lucy Atkinson- Visual Arts and Design
David Herbert- Individuals and Societies
Tony Palumbo- Music
Rina Mochizuki- ESL Teaching Assistant
These staff have all settled in and are making an impact in the classroom. We wish you a fulfilling year ahead.
We have moved to the a Kampong style Homeroom this year. What this means is a smaller group of students with the teacher to start the day. Students and teacher will build a closer community to work with over the course of the year.
