We very much enjoyed celebrating ISM’s colourful International Day on Friday. Thank you to all parents who organised for their children to dress up in clothes from their home country, or who helped out with the various country booths in the afternoon. The International Assembly was a good reminder of why we love being a part of this diverse community.
Next week is Healthy Living Week at ISM. The assembly and some of the lessons will have a Healthy Living focus. You can support the teachers by encouraging these good habits further at home, e.g. having a good balance of work, rest and play; getting good quality and enough sleep; eating a healthy, balanced diet; drinking plenty of water; taking care in the sun; always washing hands after going to the toilet; and getting daily exercise.
As part of Healthy Living Week, we will hold the Primary Interhouse Sports Day on Wednesday. All EC – P6 children should arrive at school wearing their house t-shirt, shorts, a hat and their running shoes on this day. The events start at 7.40am on the top pitch and last all morning. Parents are welcome to come along and cheer the children.
We will celebrate Halloween on Friday afternoon. Children should come to school in normal clothes that day, ready for normal lessons in the morning. Halloween events will only begin at 3.30pm, when they should return to school in their costumes. Please help us by signing up to create a ‘Trunk or Treat.’ The sign up sheet is on the Primary Noticeboard.
