Dear YK Pao School Community,
Well, what a fantastic last week of the school year. The school has been buzzing with activity and preparations for the school holiday and the Summer Camps but we have also been taking the time to reflect upon what a productive year we have had.
The Year 5 Graduation ceremony on Thursday was a wonderful way for our students to mark their final days in Primary School. To have our Founders, Board Members, special guests, parents and teachers there to send our students on their way was truly special. Thank you to all of the parents who attended and made it such a special occasion, and particularly to those parents who spoke so passionately about the school and to those of you who produced the wonderful quilt which will be a long lasting legacy for the graduating class of 2014. I am sure you will join us in thanking each and every member of the school community who has contributed to the learning of this special cohort of students.
We are also preparing for our summer building programme. The last week has seen many of the Administrative staff re-locate to new offices and the library is all set for a renovation and extension, courtesy of this year’s Annual Fund. We look forward to improved accommodation next semester.
Please find attached the information relating to your child’s homeroom teacher and also the calendared events for next year. You will notice that we have added some new events and removed others. As a school we are evolving and making sure that the planned events do not detract too much from our classroom teaching and learning. At the same time, we want our school to continue being a busy, active and dynamic community resource.
Finally, on behalf of all staff we would like to thank you for your tremendous support this year and wish you all a very restful and relaxing holiday. We look forward to welcoming you back safely on Monday August 25th.
Chinese Culture Week
A nine-day cultural week ended this Tuesday. This cultural week, teachers designed colorful activities for students around themes for different Years. Students experience Chinese traditional culture through the activities, mixing playing and learning together. During the “Speech Day”, students showed their own learning achievement by speech, drama, and exhibition. We really appreciate parents’ support to the Mandarin activities!
At the beginning and end of each school year we welcome some new staff and, unfortunately, say farewell to others. For different reasons, staff who are leaving are Maureen Giulieri, Jeffrey Reed, Anne Murray, Phuong Phan, Vinci Shi, Tin Hu, Laila Du, Sara Miao, Nancy Zhou, Dorothy Dai and Amy Zhu. We will also say goodbye to Tess Stanton, Jemima Mcneillis, Verity Amos, Andrew Peden and Morgan Yee. We would like to thank the staff named above for their contributions to the school community and wish them all the very best in the future.
We have four Intern Teachers who are making the move up to teacher status. They are Rainbow Huang, May Gou from the Math Team, Jassita Min from the Mandarin Team and Laura as a CAL teacher. With 2~3-year learning and practicing in YK Pao School, these young teachers have grown to be capable of undertaking the teaching tasks on their own. Congratulations to all of them!

Message from the PE Department
School Sports Uniforms
All students that are leaving Primary should by now have handed sports uniforms back to their coaches. All students that are continuing in YKPS Primary School may keep their kit. Should the kit become too small after the holidays then upon return of the shirt and shorts smelling of lavender, we shall issue your child a new set!
Parent /Teachers Football Team
I am pleased to announce that we shall combine a team of teachers and parents to play soccer in the Shanghai Asia Masters 7 a side Football Competition, to be held on Saturday 6th and Sunday the 7th of September at the Shanghai Rugby Club, Wuzhou Rd, Wai Gao Qiao, Pudong.
The tournament is over two days for footballers over 40 years of age (we are allowed 2 players over 35 years). Should any parent feel that they would like to come along and play, please email me ( email@example.com ) and I can give you more details. Meanwhile; start the battle for fitness!
Sunday Football at Shanghai High School 2014 / 2015
There will be 5 dates for Sports For Life Football at S.A.S. next season. As soon as we have had confirmation of these dates we shall inform you.
In each Year Group from Year 1 to Year 4, we shall run two teams. Training will be twice a week, done during one lunchtime and during Team Sports class.
A Head Coach for each Year Group will be appointed and we hope to have 20 – 24 students per Year. This would mean two teams at each age group. The Head Coach will take one team and we need help for the second team. This is where I am asking the parents to step forward and support us. Rather than bring in coaches who have no connection with the students, I am asking for two parents per age group to join to run one team. That means two parents from Year 4, two parents from Year 3, two parents from Year 2 and none as yet from Year 1 as there will be only one team until season two, when we shall need two parents.
I would ask you to contact the PTA rep from your child’s Year Group if you are able to commit to 5 Sunday mornings in Semester 1 to help run a team in which your child will be playing. If you would like to know more please email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I can give you more details.
