Thank you!

Dear Parents, Families and Friends,

Many thank to all of you who made it to the Student-Led Conferences on Monday.  It was great to see some many families take the time to talk to their child about their learning.  Students enjoyed showing off their portfolios in the class, different activities, testing their parents knowledge and understanding and even singing a song and playing some badminton.

A massive thank you to our PTA for supporting the school and organising events such as Teachers Day, Vietnamese Week, Spring Carnival, the 20th Birthday and the Elementary Production Bake Sale.  The PTA would like to thank all parents, students (especially the grade 11 CAS students and the student council), teachers and HIS staff, for the successful Spring Carnival.  We raised 65.727.000 VND, roughly 2900 USD.  On the last assembly of the school year (June 07 at 13:30) this amount will be handed over to a representative of Blue Dragon.  The PTA would like to promote new membership during orientation week in August.

Some of you maybe aware of staff  be leaving this year.  We sadly say goodbye to Miss Yana, Mr Grant, Mr Adam (PE) and Myself from Elementary.  We have wonderfully qualified and experienced people replacing them, but although they will be replaced they will never be forgotten.

We would like to welcome, Ms Erin our new Grade 3 teacher, Mr Dean for Music, Ms Meryn for EAL, Mr Christopher for PE and Ms Kelsey as the new Head of Elementary.

Due to the fact that we have little turnover in elementary, most of the teachers and TAs are remaining with the same Grade, the only difference will be two grade 5 classes next year.

Ms Rebecca and Ms Loan will be teaching Prek-K

Ms Kate and Ms Hoai will be teaching Grade 1

Mr James and Ms Thu will be teaching Grade 2

Ms Erin and Ms Xuan will be teaching Grade 3

Mr Adam and Ms Huong will be teaching Grade 4

Ms Pushpa, Mr Currie and Ms Thao will be teaching Grade 5.

Ms Vani will be stepping into a new role of ELS Coordinator and PYP Coordinator

Please support our Grade 5 Exhibition in any way you can and all parents are welcome to come to attend the Grade 5 Exhibition on Tuesday 6th June.  Yearbooks will be available soon.

I would like to take this opportunity to wish you a great summer, goodbye to those families leaving and good luck.  Thank you all for the support, love and enthusiasm you have given me over the last 6 years.
