Dear Parents/Guardians,

We want to welcome back our pupils after the September term break. We believe our pupils have used their time wisely during the break and you had a good bonding time with them. We are now into the final term of the year and it will be another great term of learning for our pupils. We want to take this opportunity to thank our Primary 6 teachers for conducting extra lessons for our Primary 6 pupils during the holidays. We want our Primary 6 pupils to be well-prepared for their PSLE this term.

We would also like to thank our PE department teachers for organising a morning walk and hike at MacRitchie Reservoir on Saturday, 1 September 2018 for a group of our

pupils and parents. They had a good time, walking, exercising and bonding. We appreciate our teachers for making the effort to bless our pupils and parents. Thank you teachers.
