From the Head of Primary


Our congratulations to Mrs Susan Sanderson, one of our Primary School Homeroom teachers who gave birth to a beautiful baby girl, Elise Marie (weighing 8lb 8oz) on Sunday. We would also like to wish two more of our Primary staff: Mrs Lucy Soliman and Mrs Zoe Zhou who have have announced that they are expecting. Zoe’s baby is due shortly and Lucy is due in January 2018. Mrs Clare Dong has been appointed to cover Zoe’s maternity leave. Clare has been working alongside Zoe since the beginning of the term, getting to know the learners and our curriculum expectations.

Parent Teacher Conferences

Please see the important notices section for details of our upcoming Parent Teacher Conferences. If you have not already booked your appointment for the Parent Teacher Conferences, you will need to do so via the Parent Portal. We have extended the Parent Portal booking system (for BOTH evenings) until midnight on Sunday, 24 September. Please be mindful that the conversations with Homeroom teachers are planned for 15 minutes. At the end of the conversation we respectfully ask you to leave the Pods quickly to maintain some privacy for the next parents coming in. Your cooperation with this is very much appreciated.

And finally, in the next couple of weeks we have our Chinese Mid Autumn Festival (Mooncake Festival) lantern making challenge and Nexus Crazy Hair Day (organised up Alex in Year 3). Please see the Up Coming Events section for details of both.
