各位包校集体成员:

本周,我们成功地将五天的工作浓缩在四天里完成!能尽力保证学生在周二正常上学也是一个明智之举。此外,由于亚信峰会的召开,包校于本周三放假一天,我们也非常感谢大家对此安排的理解与支持。

感谢那些前来参加国际学校测试家长信息会的各位家长。我们很高兴能与您会面,并借此机会向大家介绍协调此次会议安排的小学部测试协调员Victoria老师。总体来说,我们对本次的测试结果很满意,通过此次测试,我们了解了学生的强项也对他们需要提高方面有了清晰的认识。

上周,我们以精彩纷呈的一至三年级体育日活动完美收官,而本周,约200名学生参与的春季音乐会也将在周五完成。学校里充满了美妙的乐声。我们感谢12支音乐小组和各合唱团为此付出的努力。我们也要感谢音乐组老师为学校带来了浓郁的音乐氛围,同时也给学生的生活增添了不少色彩。

我们还要祝贺与马西莫贝里尼歌剧院携手在上海国际之春音乐节闭幕式上表演的那些孩子们。与他们相处过的工作人员给予了他们极高的肯定,相信这次的经历也将让孩子们终身难忘。

欢迎您抽空欣赏在西楼5楼展出的艺术作品。(很明显,学校的舞龙占据了欣赏学生作品的最佳视野)

和往常一样,本周末孩子们又将是活动满满,祝各个体育队出战顺利。

一起电话欺诈事件引起了学校的关注,请阅读校长来信中有关“欺诈电话”的信息以避免此类事件发生在您的身上。

祝各位度过一个轻松愉快的周末。

欺诈电话

有个别家长已向学校报备他们接到了自称是其孩子老师的人的电话并要求他们转账以支付孩子在体育课上因意外事故或受伤而需要紧急手术的相关费用。但打电话的人在被询问更详细的情况时却露出了马脚,如被问到“你是谁?”、“你是哪个部门的老师?”等。请各位家长注意,根据学校政策规定,学生在上学期间受伤的话,班主任老师或校医会及时联系相关家长。如果您接到了其他人打来电话说孩子受伤,还请立即与班主任或校医联系确认以免上当受骗。

上海教委辟谣恐怖分子扬言目标为学生

以下信息节选自中国日报网站,供您知晓:

人民网北京5月23日电 (田雪)近日,网上流传着有关“教育局通知,东突恐怖分子已进入上海”的消息,引起众多网民的担忧。今日,上海市教委辟谣称,从未发过此消息,不要误信。

被广泛传播的消息称“教育局紧急通知:东突恐怖分子已进入上海,扬言目标为中小学生。教育局要求近期取消一切集会活动……”对此,上海教委在其官方微博表示:“据核查,本市教育系统从未发过此类通知,也未接到过此类报告。请广大网友不要误信、误传!”

此后,上海市公安局官方微博也转发教委微博内容称“不信谣,不传谣,谣言止于智者”。

开卷助人项目之休宁之行

上周末,一行20人的学生、家长和老师组成的探访团出发前往安徽省,探访小母牛在休宁县板桥乡徐源村和蓝田镇儒村的两个项目,了解我们的捐款如何帮助中国贫困地区的农户改善他们的生活状况。

探访团不但探访了受助农户家庭、入住农户家,更参与了在儒村举办的小母牛礼品传递仪式以及观看现场炒茶过程。今年再次来到徐源村,我们欣喜的发现村中新建了广场,房子,鱼塘和小桥。原来,在这一年中,村中的经济改善了,更多的农户有能力花钱建鱼塘,村民的脸上洋溢着笑容。

探访活动后,同学们感受良多,不约而同表示回到上海会更加珍惜自己所拥有的,并会更加努力地去帮助有需要的人!

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

家长们都觉得,在当今这样一个纷扰繁忙的世界里最困难的任务之一就是要抽出时间。好好花时间和孩子们相处会彻底改变他们的世界。我们往往为了给孩子一个美好的未来而努力打拼,却不能在他们学习与成长的过程中常伴其左右。然而这段关键时刻如果被错过的话,它也将是一去不复返的。本周的人文关怀角,我想给大家提几个好点子,希望能帮助您挤出多一点时间和家人共聚。详细内容请见附件。

头虱

近日有一些学生感染头虱,学校已经开展了检查和消毒工作,以确保在校学生中没有头虱。经常洗头是有效的预防方法,同时还应尽量避免头与头的触碰,也请培训你的孩子只带自己的帽子(这需要帽子的名字标示十分清楚才能做到)。

头虱虫卵呈微小颗粒,孵化前为黄色,棕褐色或褐色。它们在头发毛囊附近接近皮肤表面的地方产卵,那里的温度有利于卵的孵化。虫卵看上去像头屑,只是它们无法被梳下来或摇下来。如果您发现孩子头发上有头虱或虫卵,希望您积极为孩子治疗,并告知校医或班主任,校医联系电话61671999-1-8131。在没有治愈好—– 头发上没有任何虫卵,包括死去的虫卵(因为我们无法通过肉眼去鉴别)之前,请您让孩子待在家里,已经生头虱的学生一定要校医复查没有虱卵后方可复课,谢谢配合。

本次游泳比赛共有来自8所学校的300名学生参赛,包校一至九年级有近80名游泳运动员参加了这次周六的比赛。尽管我们的表现优异,我们也应当铭记以下几点:

  1. 一些参赛学校并没有自己的游泳池来进行训练,他们在比赛中也已竭尽全力拿出最好的表现。(五年前包校学生也经历过同样的境遇!)
  2. 比赛成绩是中小学部的学生们在团队体育时段和晨训时段坚持不懈努力训练的成果。我们的游泳选手们身上体现出了百折不挠的精神,他们都是好样的。同时,我们也要感谢在孩子身后默默支持的父母,毕竟能坚持每周两天早起送孩子来晨训也不是一件容易的事!周六,我们见证了很多个人最佳成绩的诞生,作为老师这让我们倍感自豪和满足,当然,这样的进步无疑也将大大提高孩子的自尊心、增强孩子们的自信心。
  3. 来自包校创办人和校长们百分百的支持与鼓励是孩子们的坚强后盾。没有坚持不懈地晨训和专业教练的投入,我们到达不了现在的水平。
  4. 游泳总教练Johnston和小学部游泳教练Johnny功不可没。

现在,让我们重新调整目标重新出发,努力赶超中国国际学校体育协会的其他成员学校。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have definitely managed to squeeze in five days work into four days this week! It was very good that we were able to run our Tuesday as a normal school day and thank you for your support and understanding regarding the closure on Wednesday for the Shanghai CICA Conference.

Thanks to those parents who attended the feedback meeting on the ISA Testing. It was good to meet with you and to introduce Victoria Adamovich, our new Assessment Coordinator, who helped coordinate the team. We have been pleased with our results overall and we have a clear focus on areas we need to develop and those in which we are strong.

Last week finished with an excellent Year 1-3 Sports Day, and this week will finish with our Spring Concert which features more than 200 of our young musicians. The school has been buzzing with performances! We appreciate the efforts of our 12 musical groups , choirs and ensembles greatly. Our thanks to the team of Music teachers who add such wonderful value to the lives of the students and the school.

Congratulations, too, to our students who performed in the Opera with Teatro Massimo Bellini to end the Shanghai International Music Festival. Our students were highly commended by all who worked with them, and they will definitely take away a memory for a lifetime.

Please do take the time to have a look at the Art Exhibition on the 5th floor of the West Building. (Our school dragon clearly has oversight of this wonderful display of student work!)

Every good wish to our sports teams this weekend; as ever, there is a full and busy programme.

A case of phone fraud has been brought to our attention today, please read the section called “Phone Fraud” bellow to find out more details of how to avoid this happening to you.

Have a restful and relaxing weekend.

Phone Fraud

We’ve been reported that several YKPS parents received phone calls from people who claimed to be their children’s teacher and requested them to transfer money to certain bank accounts for medical operations, as they claimed children had been in an accident or got injured during PE lessons. However, the swindler gave his show away when being asked for more details such as who he is, which department of YKPS he is in, etc. Please be advised that as the school procedure, only the school nurse or homeroom teacher will call parents promptly when related students have accidents during school hours. Please bear that in mind when you get a call from someone else claiming your child is injured; please contact your child’s homeroom teacher or the school nurse immediately for confirmation.

Shanghai Education Commission rumor “East Turkistan elements Ruhu threatened to attack the students.”

The message below was taken from the website of China Daily, just for your information:

People, Beijing, May 23 (by Tian Xue) recently circulated on the Internet about the ‘Bureau notification has entered the Shanghai East Turkistan terrorists’ message, causing concern of many users. Today, Shanghai Municipal Education Commission announced that it never sent this message. Do not mistakenly believe this.

A widespread message that says ‘urgent notice Bureau: East Turkistan terrorists have entered Shanghai, threatened to target schoolchildren’s education requires all gatherings… recently to be canceled.’ In this regard, Shanghai Education Commission in its official micro-blog said: ‘It is verified that the city education system has never had such a notice issued nor received any such reports. Please do not be misled into believing the majority of users misinformation! ‘

Since then, the Shanghai Public Security Bureau official micro-blogging content is also forwarded the BoE said: ‘Do not believe rumors, do not pass rumors, rumors must stop.’

Read to Feed Trip to Xiuning

Last weekend, a group of our students, parents and teachers set out for Anhui Province to visit project in Xuyuan Village and Ru Village in Xiuning County to see at firsthand how the money they raised will be spent in rural China.

We not only visited families and stayed in the famers’ house but also took part in passing on the gift ceremonies in Ru Village and watched the process of curing tea leaves. This is the second year we visit Xuyuan Village. When we got to the village we were happy to see the new village square, new houses, more fish ponds and bridges in the village. We found out that the village economy had improved and more villagers could now afford to build new fish ponds, and everyone was smiling much more.

After the visit the students said they felt inspired to treasure what they have and they promised to help more people in the future.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

One of the most difficult tasks that parents find in today’s busy world is just finding time. Time well spent with your child will make all the difference in the world. We are working hard to give our children the best future they can have, but missed time now while they are growing and learning can never be taken back once it’s missed. For this week’s Pastoral Care corner, I would like to offer some great ideas for finding a little more time to spend with the family. Please check the attachment for more details.

Head Lice

We have seen several cases of head lice recently and are checking daily to make sure no students at school have head lice. Washing hair often is a simple but effective prevention method, as is avoiding head-to-head contact. Meanwhile, please train your child to wear his/her own cap which is clearly labeled with the name.

Lice eggs (nits) look like tiny yellow, tan, or brown dots before they hatch. Lice lay nits on hair shafts close to the skin’s surface, where the temperature is perfect for keeping them warm until they hatch. Nits look similar to dandruff, only they can’t be removed by brushing or shaking them off. If you find head lice or eggs, please inform class teachers and the school nurse, seek medical treatment and keep your child at home until there are no eggs on the hair, including the dead eggs (Because we cannot estimate the hatchability for the eggs with naked eyes). You can contact our school nurse on 61671999-1-8131. Students returning to school after treatment should have their heads checked by the school nurse before proceeding to the classroom. Thank you for your cooperation.

YKPS had nearly 80 competitors from Year 1 to Year 9 competing. There were 300 students in total from 8 schools. Although we look impressive at the top of the pile, there are several factors we need to remember:

  1. Some of these Schools do not have swimming pools, so they have made a massive effort to be present at all. (This was our situation some 5 years ago!)
  2.  It is the consistent, regular, hard work done in the Team Sports Practice and the Early Morning Team Trainings that has made the difference at Primary and Secondary Divisions. Well done to the swimmers firstly for the commitment and secondly well done to you the parents, as I know and understand an early wake up twice a week is not easy! I witnessed so many P. B’s. (Personal Bests) on Saturday, that it makes our jobs as teachers so fulfilling and of course it’s so good for the students’ self esteem.
  3. The Founders and Principals have supported, pushed and been 100% behind us at all times. The progress made so far could not have happened without time in the day to practice and the personnel brought in to coach.
  4. The dedication of Johnson (Head Swimming Coach) and Johnny (Primary Swimming Coach). They have made this happen.

Now let’s look to move on, realign our targets and look to get ahead of the rest of the CISSA Schools.

Newsletter 16 May 2014

各位包校集体成员:

我们度过了极为精彩的一周!紧接着上周五的民族舞晚会和周末的各项体育、音乐活动,这一周的活动更为密集!其中,中文舞台剧的表演是本周最吸引眼球的亮点。舞台剧“寻找声音的耳朵”的巨大成功让我们深刻体会到了大家万众一心、同心协力的力量。首场演出当晚,我们的创办人也到场支持孩子们。通过表演,他们感受到了这群充满活力和天赋的孩子们对舞台的热情。孩子们的表演非常出彩,他们也完全有能力胜任难度更大的角色。祝贺所有参与舞台剧的工作人员,特别要感谢金威老师和她的团队在整个策划、准备、排练及协调过程中的付出。“倾听”是整场演出向观众专递的一个重要信息,我也希望无论是学生、老师还是家长都能思考这个技能的重要性。

今天,四年级的学生出发去了朱家角。孩子们对于此次出行非常兴奋。同时,我们也祝另一群前往安徽休宁的学生、家长和老师借着此次安徽之行了解更多有关开卷助人项目的信息。

此外,我们也希望我们的小歌手们周末表演顺利。他们将与知名的意大利歌剧公司合作表演,为此他们刻苦练习意大利语歌词并熟记自己的肢体动作。对他们来说,这也将会是一次非常难忘的学习经历。

本周最终以一至三年级的体育活动日收尾,大家都玩得很开心!春天学院赢得了最终的胜利。感谢体育组老师为学生们组织这么有趣的活动。

下一周也将是繁忙的一周,孩子们正在积极准备春季音乐会的表演,我们期待下周五再次与您共享听觉盛宴。

请各位留意本信中稍后提到的国际学校测试结果的家长分享会信息。国际学校测试为我们学生就英语和数学能力与其他国际学校学生对比提供了重要的衡量指标。如果您有兴趣了解详情,我们欢迎您前来参加会议。

祝各位度过一个轻松愉快的周末。

中文舞台剧信息

《寻找声音的耳朵》终于完美落幕,历经几乎一个学期的策划和排练,最终我们的中文音乐剧完美收官了。

同学们,导演们,老师们,你们辛苦了。所有站在这个舞台上的同学,你们感受到了苦尽甘来吗?所有的辛苦换来那璀璨的一刻,只为圆你心中的一个舞台梦!我们为所有人感到骄傲。

我们包校的核心中文音乐剧团队为此付出了艰辛的努力,在此,我仅代表《寻找声音的耳朵》剧组向以下老师表示深深的感谢:Annie、Chloe、Laila、Jade、Molly、Aly、Nancy、Maureen、Victoria、Nita、Poppy和Tin老师。 同时,我们要对支持中文音乐剧的全体志愿者、后勤、IT、财务、前台和教学团队说声‘谢谢’。

中文音乐剧会后续推出DVD和照片集,我们会给每位参加的同学和老师送上一份留作纪念。所以还是要请家长们耐心等待哦!

请一定注意金老师的微信和邮件:lily.jin@ykpaoschool.cn  微信号:jinwei200

感谢

上周五我们成功的举办了民族舞晚会,相信大家都度过了一个愉快的、令人兴奋的晚上。

亚洲相互协作与信任措施会议第四次峰会将于本月21日在上海举行。家长们也可能已经知道21日当天上海市区学校将放假一天。为响应教育局号召,包校小学部也将放假一天。我们想要提醒大家的是,包校中学部5月21日仍是正常上学日。谢谢您的关注。

国际学校测试

三至五年级学生已于本学期初参加了国际学校测试。今年已是包校学生第四次参加此测试了。国际学校测试的报告将反应和描述学生所学的知识和掌握的技能。每一年的测试结果可做比对,利用此结果,可以在一段时间内跟踪学生及学校的水平。我们将于5月22日18:00-19:30在礼堂安排一场ISA说明会与三至五年级家长分享ISA测试结果。我们也欢迎一、二年级有兴趣的家长来参加此会。

来自教育局的通知

近期,教育局接到几起电话欺诈案件的汇报。一些其他学校的家长接到自称是其孩子老师的人的电话,要求家长转账以支付孩子因意外事故或受伤而需要紧急手术的相关费用。为避免此类欺诈案件发生在包校集体成员中,如果您接到类似电话,请及时先与班主任老师联系确认。此外,也请家长配合学校教育孩子不要将个人信息透露给陌生人。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

We have had a tremendous week! Following on from the Folk Dance last Friday and a whole range of sporting and music activities last weekend, this week has been even busier! The performing arts have been a highlight. The Chinese production, ‘In Search of Sound’, has been a wonderful reminder of what can be achieved when the whole community pulls together and focuses attention on a shared goal. It was wonderful that our Founders were able to attend the event and to see how energetic, enthusiastic and capable our students are. Our students performed superbly and all were able to be a part of something bigger than themselves. Congratulations to all involved and especially to Lily Jin and her team who oversaw the whole process. The importance of ‘listening’ was a wonderful message and I would urge us all to consider how important this skill is, whether we are students, teachers or parents.

We waved off our Year 4 students on a trip to Zhujiajiao today. They were very excited about the trip. We also wish those students, parents and teachers who have gone to Anhui Xiuning to learn more about the Read To Feed programme.

We wish our young opera singers well this weekend, too. They will be performing with a professional Italian opera company and have worked extremely hard to learn their lines and actions. It has been an outstanding learning experience for them.

This afternoon finished with our Year 1-3 sports day. What fun! Thanks to the PE team who organized such a wonderful event. Congratulations to the winners, Summer House.

Next week promises to be busy, too. The Spring Concert is well underway and we look forward to seeing you next Friday.

Please also note the meeting for parents regarding our school assessments. We wish to share the schoolwide results of our ISA testing which enables us to benchmark our academic standards for English and Mathematics with other schools internationally. Do please come along if you are interested in finding out more.

Have a restful and relaxing weekend.

Message on Chinese Production

The curtain of In Search of the Sound has just come down today. After almost a whole semester of planning and rehearsing, our Chinese Production came to a perfect end.

A big round of applause to all the actors, teachers and the Director of the Production. To all the actors who were on the stage, did you feel the reward that the flashes and applauses have brought to you? It felt like all the hard work has paid off when standing on the stage with all attention from the audience, when your dreams came true.  We are so proud of you.

Thanks to the Production team for their great efforts, and on behalf of the team; I would like to express my sincere appreciation to Ms Annie, Chloe, Laila, Jade, Molly, Aly, Nancy, Maureen, Victoria, Nita, Poppy and Tin. Meanwhile, a big thank you to all the volunteers and staff from Logistic Department, IT Department, Finance, Reception and Teaching and Learning team.

We will also prepare the DVD and Photo album as gifts for all actors and teachers who supported the production. You can look forward to that!

The Folk Dance Evening last Friday was a big success and we believe that you all enjoyed a pleasant and exciting evening.

In addition, with her ideas and support, Ms Carol and was able to arrange the brilliant group dances. And thanks to Ms Carol and Ms Jessica for organising the wonderful group dances.

International Schools’ Assessment

Students in Years 3-5 took part in the International Schools’ Assessment at the beginning of this semester. It was the fourth time that our students have participated in this assessment. The ISA reports provide descriptive information about what students know and can do. The results are equated from year to year so they can be used to track changes over time at individual and school level. We will have a meeting to share the feedback with Years 3-5 parents at 18:00-19:30 in the Auditorium on May 22nd.  Year 1 and Year 2 parents please feel free to come if interested.

Notice from the Education Bureau

Recently, the Education Bureau reported that several parents from different schools received phone calls from people who claimed to be their children’s teacher and requested the parents to transfer money to certain bank accounts for medical operations, as they claimed children had been in an accident or got injured. To avoid deception cases like, please contact your child’s homeroom teacher if you receive phone calls asking for money. Meanwhile, please work together with the school to train our students to take care and not to share personal information to strangers.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

The Character Strength of the month is RESPECT. During the month, your child will be learning about what it means to be a respectful person and ways that they can demonstrate it in their daily lives. We have included a number of simple activities and discussion topics on respect which you and your child can complete together at home. They are a great way for you to understand what your child is learning and for your child to show you what he or she knows.

Thank you for supporting your child in learning the skills and attitudes that lead to success in school and in life.  Please check the attachment for more details.

Newsletter 25 April 2014

各位包校集体成员:

在本周校长来信的开头,我想讨论下包校社区成员这个问题。最近,在接送孩子上下学的时候发生了两次不愉快的事情,有个别家长对待其他家长以及我们的保安不太礼貌。我想,在包校社区中,这当属罕见现象,因为包校是这样一个友爱的、令人愉快的地方。我想请大家留意,我们每个人都是孩子的榜样,礼貌、友爱、有教养的行为对孩子的影响是至关重要的。学校希望包校集体的成员都能是尊重他人并富有责任意识的。

上周末包校小学部异常精彩!我们举行了一系列高质量的活动。衷心感谢所有家长和学生热情参与环保二手集市,此活动之所以能大获成功在很大程度上是由于家校协力会的努力,特别是二年级家长王玮先生所领导的环保二手集市筹备委员会的付出。

另一个精彩活动是上周六29名包校学生在嘉定赛车场参加了F1大奖赛开幕式的合唱表演,这真是一次非常特别的表演,我们很幸运能够成为此赛事的一部分。祝贺所有参与其中的师生!

我们的体育部门也继续在为孩子提供多样化的精彩活动机会,上周六举行的击剑比赛又为我们的行事历增色不少。此外,我们的女子排球队在上周末的校际比赛中获胜,我们真为她们自豪!

像往常一样,超过80名足球队员参加了在上海美国学校举行的本赛季第二轮一至四年级的足球比赛,他们表现出色,这也是我们大家的荣誉。

我有幸在本周一的早集会上为最近在游泳比赛中获奖的队员们颁发奖章,恭喜我们的获胜选手以及所有的游泳选手为了代表学校出赛,每天都早早地投入到游泳晨训当中。本赛季的成果颇丰,胜过以往任何一季。

很高兴本周看到有这么多家长来参加家长/老师见面会。希望跟老师们的这种互动对您有帮助。感谢您在这段时间内的支持,如果家长能跟学校紧密合作,这对孩子们的学习非常有益。

祝您与家人度过一个轻松愉快的假期,期待在5月5日看到孩子们安全回归校园!

假期作业

所有假期作业都将于最后一天上学日发放。老师将不会为提前度假的同学做特殊安排,所有学生都于正式放假的前一天拿到假期作业,家长可安排家人或助手前来取作业。我们希望所有学生得到平等对待,也希望减轻老师们的负担。感谢您的理解与支持!

来自音乐组的信息

本周是繁忙的一周,各项活动在包校轮番上演,当然音乐项目也是精彩纷呈的。上周五,我们进行了月度早集会演奏会,参加演出的学生有:钢琴独奏:郑雅文(Y3B)和窦木梓(Y1A);钢琴二重奏:孙仪安(Y2C)和周思涵(Y3B);大提琴二重奏:刘天安(Y2B)和黄麦加(Y4A);大提琴四重奏:宋洁儿(Y4A)、严斯思(Y5A)、葛宁(Y5B)和白昕悦(Y5C);最终演出在一场漂亮的弦乐四重奏中结束,弦乐四重奏:刘天佑(Y4A)、梁宸浩(Y4B)、吴峻豪(Y4D)和朱哲立(Y4D)。这次演出是窦木梓的首次亮相,她正在为皇家音乐的三级考试备考。这次弦乐四重奏队伍是由吴峻豪(Y4D)组建,所有的排练也是他们自己安排进行的。

周六音乐项目基本正常进行,除了周六合唱团暂停了,因为四、五年级差不多有30 位学生需要去上海国际赛车场为今年的赛事表演。经过了在停车场漫长的等待,我们与西华国际学校、长宁国际学校以及60多名来自包校中学部的学生一起,在寒冷的雨水中进行了第一次联合彩排。总共有300名歌手参加了当天的彩排。好在,周日天气好转,演出也非常成功。这次赛事面向全球转播,赛场内也有十万名观众现场观看。 站在起跑线面对那么多观众表演是一次振奋人心的经历。

本周一,我们在学校早集会上举行了另一场演出。来自上海音乐学院的学生们为我们奉献了一场萨克斯、钢琴和贝司合奏的演出。这场振奋人心的表演为我们这一周的工作开了个好头。

我校有20名左右的学生参加了一个由长宁区少年宫主办的艺术竞赛。此竞赛有器乐和戏剧两个方面。 我们预祝所有的参赛者都能获得好成绩。该比赛将于4月26日上午10点在长宁区少年宫举行,地址是愚园路1136号。参赛者请务必带好您的参赛证。

周四下午,15名包校学生成功通过著名的Teatro Massimo Bellini歌剧公司的试听,将加入5月18日上海国际之春音乐节的演出。在正式演出的前两周,学生们将由专业声乐教练进行培训。

上海学校体育协会举办的排球锦标赛在包校中学部进行

在冠军赛开始之前,球员们以原来的阵容进行几场热身赛,最终,我们11岁以下年龄段球队赢得了最后的比赛。祝贺刘凯教练和他麾下的这支刻苦勤奋的女子球队。

412日在上海美国学校举行的游泳对抗赛

我们很高兴地向您宣布,包校游泳队的总体成绩已上升至第四位。从比赛成绩上看,孩子们的竞技水平有了切实的提高,这也是孩子们在晨训和体段时段艰苦训练的成果。

8岁以下年龄段女子自由泳接力赛第三名:李忻桐3C、 伍可怡3B、温婉誉2C、李雨倩2B

9-10岁年龄段女子组50米蛙泳第一名:杨熙佳4B

李忻桐3C 荣获8-10岁年龄段100米自由泳第二名并在8岁及以下年龄段的25米蝶泳中取得了第三名

以上是游泳队部分成员取得的优秀成绩,但我想借此机会祝贺整支队伍,祝贺他们通过自己的勤奋与努力纷纷提高了个人最佳成绩。很多排名在第五、六、七名的队员也为我们争取到了很珍贵的积分,让我们的总分名列前茅。

我也留意到最近的晨训出勤率有所下滑。游泳队员每周因至少参加晨训两次并于6:45抵达游泳池进行训练,迟于7:00到校的队员将无法参加训练。

持续的训练是提高个人水平、在与强队竞技的大赛中取得好成绩的保障,而让我们的孩子站在更高的领奖台上就是我们下一个目标。

Sport for Life 周日足球赛日程提醒:

家长联系人: 在遇到空气污染严重(污染指数超过150)、暴雨或其他影响比赛的情况时,请在周日当天的7:45之后联系您孩子所在年级的年级代表确认当天的比赛是否照常进行。

教练(通常情况下是Mike老师)会在7:45之前与球赛主办方先行确认,随后再通知各年级代表开赛与否的结果。感谢各位家长的理解与支持。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

I would like to start the newsletter this week by appealing to you as members of our community. There have been one or two incidents recently at drop-off and collection times when some parents have been less than courteous to one another or to members of our security staff. This is, in my experience, extremely rare at YK Pao School which is an overwhelmingly happy and friendly place. I would ask each of us to remember that we set the examples for our students and it is important that we model polite, friendly and courteous behaviours. It is an expectation from the school that all members of our community are respectful and responsible.

Last weekend was excellent for the Primary Division! The number and quality of events were outstanding. Our sincere thanks to all parents and students who attended the very successful Eco-Fair last Saturday. It was a tremendous success and this was, in large part, due to the outstanding efforts of the PTA and the Year 2 parents organizing committee led by Mr Wong Wei.

Another outstanding achievement was the involvement of the 29 students who sang as a part of the opening ceremony at the Formula 1 event at the Jiading Circuit last Sunday. For those of us fortunate to have been part of the event, it was a very special performance indeed. Congratulations to the students and staff involved.

Our PE department continues to thrive and provide outstanding opportunities for all of our students. The Fencing Competition was a wonderful addition to our calendar last Saturday. In addition, the girls Volleyball team won the inter-schools competition last weekend and we are very proud of them!

As always, in excess of 80 football players attended the second round of this season’s competitions for Years 1-4 at the Shanghai American School last Sunday. They performed well and were a credit to us all.

I was fortunate enough to be able to give out a host of winners’ medals during the Monday Assembly as a result of an excellent swimming competition hosted recently. Congratulations to our winners and to all of those swimmers who have committed to early morning training in order to represent the school. Their achievements this season have been better than ever.

It has been a pleasure meeting so many parents at the Parent -Teacher Conferences this week. We hope that you have found the interactions with your child’s teacher helpful and productive. Thanks for your support during this period. It benefits students’ learning a great deal when we are able to work in close partnership with parents.

We wish you all a restful and relaxing week with the family and look forward to welcoming the students back safe and sound on Monday, 5th May.

Holiday Homework

All holiday homework was released on the last day before the holiday. Unfortunately, this means that students not in attendance will not  have received it. Please note that no special provision will be made for those students. Your understanding is appreciated.

Power Outage Notice

Please be advised that the school email, Moodle System and other services will be offline from Sunday night (Apr. 27th) until Tuesday morning (Apr. 29th) due to the power outage in Primary Division. The Shanghai Electric Power Company is going to take that time for testing and maintenance of the high voltage electrical equipments. Just for your information.

Message on Chinese Production

We will stop the rehearsal for one week as the Director and Producer will have an outing activity. We hope students can take a good rest and enjoy the holiday. Meanwhile, Ms Lily wants to remind everyone to take a moderate approach at holiday time, to ensure that you take a good 1-2 day rest before May 5th, as the first week after holiday will be a really tough rehearsal period, especially for the core actors who need to rehearse every day and the main actors also need to rehearse for three consecutive days. As for the other actors, I am sorry to keep you waiting for so long.  I am wondering if you can sing the song, ‘Did you hear it’, now. Can you remember all the lyrics by heart now? If not, please be sure to practice more…

Thank you for all the support from parents and teachers.  Our tickets and handbags selling went very well. Almost all the tickets were sold out with only a few tickets left.  We still have some seats on the second row on the second floor available, so if you want to invite friends for the show, please hurry. The ticket selling deadline is 9th May 2014.

Please take note that the special arrangement locations have been changed:

May 5th and 6th (Monday and Tuesday): All core actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in Room 2318, third floor, East Building

May 7th and 8th (Wednesday and Thursday): All core actors and main actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 9th (Friday): All core actors, main actors and other actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 12th (Monday): Core actors at 16:00-18:00 in Room 2318, third floor, East Building

May 13th (Tuesday): Ma Lan Hua Theater Stage Rehearsal

For any follow-ups or updates, please check the messages sent by Ms Lily via WeChat and email. Thanks!

Message from the Music Department

This has been a packed week of many different activities and events throughout the school, and it was certainly true within the Music programmes.

Last Friday we put on our monthly assembly recital featuring solo piano performances by Yawen (Y3B) and Emily (Y1A); a piano duet with Susie (Y2C) and Helen(Y3B); a cello duet with Matthew (Y2B) and Micah (Y4A); a cello quartet with Anna-Lee (Y4A), Sissy (Y5A), Apolline (Y5B) and Sheena (Y5C), finishing with a slick string quartet made up of Nathaniel (Y4A), David (Y4B), Evan (Y4D) and Charlie (Y4D). This was Emily’s debut and she was sitting her ABRSM Grade 3 exam. The final string quartet was set up by Evan and the group rehearsed the music themselves.

The Saturday Music Programme continued nearly as normal – there was no choir as 30 of our years 4 and 5 had to leave for a rehearsal at the Shanghai International Race Circuit to sing in this year’s Shanghai Grand Prix opening ceremony. After a long wait in the car park, we gathered in the cold rain and had our first practice with students from WISS and SCIS together with 60 students from YK Pao Secondary Campus. In all, we were 300 singers strong. On Sunday the weather was much better and the performance went extremely well. This event was televised round the world and there were about 100,000 spectators at the event itself. To stand on the start line and sing in front of so many people was a truly thrilling experience!

On Monday we had another performance assembly, but this time given by a trio of saxophone, piano and bass guitar made up of students from the Shanghai Conservatory. This was truly inspirational and set the week off to a very pleasant start!

Around 20 of our students have entered a major arts’ competition arranged by the Changning Children’s Palace. This competition is for both instrumental and drama performances. We wish all the competitors the best of luck. The competition will be on at 10:00 am on Saturday, 26th April at the Changning Children’s Palace, No 1136 Yu Yuan Road.  Competitors must remember to take their admission cards with them.

Finally, on Thursday afternoon, 15 of our students were successfully auditioned by a well known opera company, Teatro Massimo Bellini, to participate in the final number of the Shanghai International Spring Music Festival in a concert on Sunday, 18th May. They will be singing as a chorus of villagers at the beginning of a performance of Pagliacci, an opera by Ruggero Leoncavallo in Cultural Square. Throughout the two weeks prior to this, the students will get training from a professional opera coach

Read to Feed Programme

Following the successful Read to Feed Programme we ran during Book Week, the Heifer Organisation is going to take some of our students and teachers to Anhui to see how the money they have raised will be spent from May 16th to 18th.  We would like to take some small gifts for the children in the village we will visit.  If you can help your child to donate some books, stationary or sports equipments, we would really appreciate your contributions. Children can put their donations in the box beside the reception desk in the West Building over the next two weeks.  They should also write a message and tape it on their donation.

Discount on EF Education English courses for Children of YK Pao School Staff and YK Pao School Students

Shanghai Schools Sports Association, Volleyball Tournament held at YKPS Secondary Campus

After several friendly games with students in older categories as a prelude to the Championship games, our Under 11 years Team won their final. Congratulations to the girls who have worked so hard under Mr. Liu Kai’s leadership.

Swimming Results East v West River, held at SAS

We are very pleased to inform you that YK Pao School came in an overall 4th place. This is real progress and a testament to the hard work and grueling hours put into training in the pool before school and during sports time.

Our Under 8 Years Girls Freestyle Relay Team came in third place (Rainbow Lee 3C, Chloe ENG 3B, Wendy 2C, Lori 2B).

Jacqueline Yang 4B was 1st in the 50 m Breast stroke for 9 and 10 Year Old Girls.

Rainbow Lee in 3C achieved a 2nd place in the 8 and Under 100 m Freestyle.  Rainbow also got 3rd place in the Girls 8 years and Under 25 m Butterfly.

 

These were the outstanding results from our Swim Team, but I would like to congratulate the whole team for their efforts and improved Personal Bests (P.B.’s). Many students swam a 5th or 6th or 7th place that gained us valuable points for the Team Award.

I have noticed a fall off recently in the team swimmers at Early Morning practice. A team swimmer should be swimming at least twice a week and arriving in the pool ready to swim at 6.45. No swimmers will enter after 7 am.

It is the commitment that will improve swimming times and make our students rise to the challenge in the big meets with the schools like SAS. This is our next target.

Reminder of Sport for Life Sunday Football Dates:

Newsletter 18 April 2014

各位包校集体成员,

在包校,没有哪一周能被贴上平凡无奇的标签,即便是周末,我们的活动也丰富多彩!

本周的早操上,孩子们为了5月9日的民族舞晚会积极排练了各式传统舞蹈。音乐组的老师们为此编排了优美的舞蹈,我们也非常期待活动当晚孩子们和家长们能为我们带来怎样的惊喜!中文舞台剧《寻找声音的耳朵》的进展也非常顺利,舞台剧的门票几乎已经售罄,相信本次的演出也会大获成功!

今天早上,孩子们又为我们呈上了一场听觉盛宴,孩子们的音乐才华总能让我们感到惊讶。钢琴独奏、大提琴与弦乐四重奏以及钢琴和大提琴二重奏的表演都极为精湛。我们不仅见识到了孩子们的演奏水平,更为他们能演绎如此多类型的音乐而感到惊叹。很高兴表演学生的家长能在现场与我们共同见证这一美好的时光。

令人激动不已的周末终于到了!首当其冲的活动是本周六上午在小学部举行的击剑比赛。此外,我们还有篮球比赛以及80位足球运动员们将于周日在上海美国学校进行周日的足球比赛。另外,还有部分中、小学部的学生将代表学校在周日上海一级方程式赛开幕式上表演。这群孩子将于明天先行前往赛车场地彩排。

最后想要提醒大家的是,包校的二手集市将于明天在长宁校区举行,我们希望在活动现场见您活跃的身影。

祝您和您的家人周末愉快!

下学年重要日期

为了帮助家长更好的规划家庭假期,我们把下学年的几个重要日期先知会大家。

822-23日:家访 (仅小学部)

8月25日:开学 (中学部24日学生到校)

9月6-8日:中秋节

9月27日-10月6日:国庆假期

1117日:十一月节 (仅中学部)

12月20日-1月4日:圣诞新年假期

2月7日-3月1日:寒假

4月4-6日:清明节假期 (中学部于4月3-5日放假)

4月25日-5月3日:五一假期

6月19日-21日:端午节假期

6月25日:学生最后一天上学 (中学部学生最后一天上学日为6月26日)

请各位家长留意,家访通常安排在8月中下旬,这是开学前家长和老师交流的好机会,请家长们预留好时间。老师会在家访前致电与您沟通具体会面时间。

中文舞台剧信息

在《寻找声音的耳朵》全校的预热集会活动后,家长们掀起了购票和纪念包热潮。这是令人兴奋的好消息!

除了此次表演的学生家长购票外,我们更希望那些没有参与本剧演出的孩子也能来观看包校首场中文音乐剧的演出,我们保证您和您的孩子不会对这出戏失望,同时,这也是培养孩子戏剧兴趣的大好机会呀!

告诉大家一个好消息,此次张导的《寻找声音的耳朵》电影已经入围北京国际电影节,是首部以儿童题材为主题的入围电影。我们恭喜张导,同时,也为包校学生可以第一时间参演这部剧而感到荣幸。

同学们,家长们,倒计时已经开启了,参演学生排练时间会比较特殊,我们进行了如下安排,敬请留意:

4月24日(周四),由于家长老师见面会,所以,我们全部排练暂停一次。

5月5日和6日(周一/周二),所有核心演员排练。16:00-18:00大礼堂

5月7日和8日(周三/周四),所有核心和主要演员排练。16:00-18:00 大礼堂

5月9日(周五),核心,主要和群众演员集体排练。16:00-18:00大礼堂

后续安排或有改变,敬请留意金老师的微信和邮件。谢谢大家!

 

晚托政策

根据学校的政策,4:05时仍未被接回家的学生将被带至晚托教室2220,晚到的家长可自行去2220教室接孩子。

学校每天安排了专门的老师在晚托教室看护学生,但并不额外向家长收取任何费用,此举旨在方便家长,因为我们理解路上总是会有堵车现象,偶然的晚到是再所难免的。但最近有家长向老师提出,不愿意在自己晚到情况下把孩子放到2220教室,而是希望让孩子自行留在操场上。这是不符合学校规定的,为了孩子们的安全,学校不允许学生在无人看护的情况下自行待在操场上,还望家长能够配合学校的政策。

另外,晚托的时间是每天下午4:05-5:00点,希望迟到的家长能够尽量配合在此时间段内把孩子接走。谢谢您的理解!

学校拍照

又到了拍摄学校年刊照片的时节!五一假期后的第一个星期起各个班级和各俱乐部团体将会陆续拍摄照片,请家长查看以下安排并提醒孩子们把跟自己有关的时间安排记在家庭作业日志上。

人文关怀角 人文关怀主任Shane老师

我想在本周的人文关怀角里向各位家长传递一个消息。我想提醒家长们的是,请不要让学生带贵重物品来学校,这一点非常重要。孩子们遗失了贵重物品或对他们有特别意义的物品后,自己会觉得很受挫,同时也为学生管理带来一定困难。有学生将自己的电子产品和大笔现金带来学校,却忘记把东西放在哪里了或不小心弄丢了。我们现在正对孩子进行自我管理的教育,同时,我们也教导他们要怀着诚信与尊重的态度成为一名积极正面的包校成员。孩子们都能很快地吸收这些理念,当然,我们也不排除有人出于羡慕或没有抵住诱惑而拿了不属于他们的东西。包校对这类事件的态度是非常严肃的,我们也一直致力于给学生以最好的行为指引。

在学校、老师教育学生的同时,我们希望家长也可以配合学校提醒孩子们不要带贵重物品来校,如不必要的现金、手机、电子产品或具有情感纪念意义的其他贵重物品。如有特殊情况而必须带来的话,请事前通知班主任老师以便我们对这些物品做好适当管理。

来自图书馆的信息

随着学乐图书俱乐部春季订购的结束,我们很高兴地宣布,我们将与贝克国际图书俱乐部一起拉开夏季订购的帷幕。贝克图书俱乐部提供更广泛的儿童读物以供选择,以及许多最新出版的书籍来吸引读者的眼睛。在贝克图书俱乐部订书,家长需要做的是去我们的网上“家长付款”(Parent Pay)账户(http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2,详见下图),选书后用自己的信用卡直接支付。请注意,在贝克图书订购过程中学校不代收任何钱款,因为一切都将在网上支付。

今天您的孩子会将贝克图书俱乐部的目录带回家,如果不小心遗失了,您也不用担心,因为您可以在网上找到所有的图书目录。

本次贝克图书俱乐部夏季订购的截止日期为59

另外,如果您有三年级的孩子还没有收到全部学乐春季订单订购的书籍,请让孩子带上订单表格,并尽快联系我们的图书馆工作人员。

感谢您的鼎力支持!购书愉快!

42425日无拓展课及晚托安排

由于家长老师见面会将于4月24、25日进行,这两天下午我们将不开设拓展课。请家长做好接孩子回家的安排。敬请留意,鉴于老师都将忙于家长见面会,24日也没有晚托服务提供,请准时来接孩子。谢谢。

F1大奖赛彩排及演出

提醒:参加F1 大奖赛演出的学生,本周六需要参加正式彩排。请相关学生于11:50在包校集合,校车于12点整准时出发开往上海国际赛车场。

重要通知:

周日的时间安排有所更改——参加演出的学生请提前一个小时到校集合,即上午850而非原定的950

周日(420日)                  08:50              在包校集合

                                                 09:00              校车准时出发

无论是周六的最后彩排还是周日的正式演出,所有参加活动的学生必须统一乘坐学校安排的校车前往赛车场,因为只有登记过的车辆及持有当日门票的车辆才能进入场地。

由于周六的彩排是唯一一次在赛车场进行的排练,因此我们要求所有参加演出的学生必须全数出席。

  • 赛车比赛预计在当天下午15:00开始
  • 报名表上选择“比赛开始后30分钟返程”的学生将乘坐于15:45发车的第一辆校车返回包校。由于当天交通情况未知,我们预估校车将于下午17:00-17:15抵达包校
  • 报名表上选择“比赛全程结束后返程 ”的 学生将乘坐于17:30左右发车的校车返回包校,预计到校时间为晚上19:30。我们预估在返城高峰时段可能会遇到通堵塞的状况。

周六音乐项目

由于Dominic老师将为周日的F1 大奖赛演出彩排,因此本周的周六合唱团暂停一次,除此以外,其他周六课程都将照常进行。

来自体育部门的消息

412日在上海美国学校举行的游泳对抗赛

上周六,包校选派了一批平日坚持刻苦训练的学生组成一支代表团与来自上海各顶尖学校的学生进行比赛。虽然比赛的正式结果还未公布,但据我们观察,我们的孩子已获得了很多个人最佳成绩,我们的总分成绩也位列前五。我们将稍后与您分享最终的战果。

我很高兴地通知大家,包校小学部将承办由上海学校体育协会组织的击剑锦标赛

比赛时间为418日,周六的9:30-13:00

比赛类别-塑料花剑比赛(适合低年龄孩童)

或使用完全装备的混合年龄组(参赛选手必须自带击剑金属服)

上海学校体育协会组织的排球锦标赛将在包校中学部举行

本周将有三个组别的球队进行排球比赛,他们分别是11岁年龄段以下球队、12岁年龄段以下球队及15岁年龄段以下球队。

本次代表包校小学部出征的是11岁年龄段以下球队。本周六,在与宋庆龄学校进行冠军赛之前,我们的队员会先进行几场友谊赛作为热身。

Sport for Life 周日足球赛日程提醒:

一年级和四年级的球队为本赛季开了个好头。

感谢上周日冒着风雨仍坚持来为孩子们加油鼓劲的家长们。当天孩子们在球场上的表现也是可圈可点的,他们踢得真棒!对于接送巴士出现的一点小状况,Mike老师也深表歉意,还望一年级的家长见谅。

 

第二次周日足球赛  – 一级方程式赛车比赛将于4月20日即本周日在上海举行,为避免在前往上海美国学校的途中遇上堵车,我们将比以往提前10分钟即8:50在学校集合。

家长联系人: 在遇到空气污染严重(污染指数超过150)、暴雨或其他影响比赛的情况时,请在周日当天的7:45之后联系您孩子所在年级的年级代表确认当天的比赛是否照常进行。

教练(通常情况下是Mike老师)会在7:45之前与球赛主办方先行确认,随后再通知各年级代表开赛与否的结果。感谢各位家长的理解与支持。

请各位家长理解,根据孩子的年龄和竞技状态,我们在努力为之安排合适的比赛。因为各项差距过大而致使孩子总是以大比分输球或赢球都是不利于孩子成长和提高的,因此我们把不同年龄和水平的球员混编入相应的比赛队伍,具体如下。希望家长能支持教练们的安排并一如既往地支持我们的孩子们,让他们成长为更优秀的小运动员。在此,我们要再次感谢您对我们的支持,您的鼓励是孩子们最宝贵的财富,也将是他们不断前进的动力。

Dear YK Pao School Community,

There is no such thing as a quiet week! The weekends are extremely busy too!

The students have been learning a range of traditional dances in Assembly this week in readiness for the Dance evening which is coming up on May 9. Our music department has excellent moves and we look forward to seeing the students and their families showing us what they can do!

The Chinese Production “In Search of Sound” is progressing extremely well and the tickets have all but sold out. It promises to be a great show.

This morning, we were treated to a wonderful selection of music performances in assembly. The talent of the students never ceases to amaze us. The piano solos, cello and string quartets, and piano and cello duets were extraordinary not only for their quality, but also for the variety of musical genres performed. It was lovely to see the parents of the performers in attendance.

We look forward to an action-packed weekend, too!  On the sports front, we are hosting a fencing competition on Saturday morning, we have teams playing basketball and eighty footballers will be playing on Sunday at the Shanghai American School. We are also sending many of our Primary and Secondary students to represent us at the Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday. They will be rehearsing at the circuit tomorrow.

Finally, we have our Eco-Fair tomorrow morning. We look forward to seeing you there!

Have a good weekend.

Message on Chinese Production

It’s exciting news that the production ticket sales are going excellent and the souvenir handbags are soon becoming an “it” item in the community after the successful warm-up assembly.

Besides the families whose children have participated in the show, we really want those students who are not involved this time to enjoy the show as an audience. We’re confident that we won’t let you down and you will be supervised by students’ effort, that’s guaranteed! Meanwhile, this will also be a great opportunity to cultivate your children’s interests in drama.

Another great news is that the movie of “In Search of Sound” which was directed by the director of our Chinese production has been nominated at the Beijing International Film Festival. This is the first child theme shortlisted movie. Congratulations to Ms. Zhang and we are honored to be the first ones to act and deliver the movie in a special way.

Tick tock goes the clock. As the big day is approaching, we’ve made some special rehearsal arrangements for the actors. It is listed as follows:

The rehearsal on April 24th will be cancelled due to Parent Teacher Conference.

May 5th and 6th (Monday and Tuesday): All core actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 7th and 8th (Wednesday and Thursday): All core actors and main actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

May 9th (Friday): All core actors, main actors and other actors rehearse at 16:00-18:00 in the Auditorium

For any follow-ups or updates, please check the messages sent by Ms Lily’s via WeChat and email. Thanks!

Late Supervision Policy

According to school’s policy, parents or guardians should come to school and pick up students who are not going back home by school buses promptly. Students who have not been collected by 4:05 will be taken to Room 2220 in the East Building so parents know where to find their children when being a bit late to get them.

The school understands that parents will sometimes be late due to occasional traffic jams and to provide a safe environment for the students who haven’t been picked after school, we work out a late supervision plan by asking teachers to stay late after school. This is a special service without extra charge offered by school; we try our best to support families anytime in our power. However, some parents recently proposed to leave their children alone on the playground when they are late for picking up instead of their children being supervised by teachers indoors. This request is not in accordance with the school’s regulations and we will not allow students to stay in the playground without supervision from a safety perspective.  We hope that parents can work closely with the school to minimise unnecessary chances of accidents for students. Children are our first priorities after all.

Just a kind reminder, the late supervision starts at 4 and finishes at 5. Hope that parents who are late can try their best to come and get their children by 5. Thank you for your understanding and cooperation.

School Photo

The school photo sessions are coming. We will arrange for students to have their photos taken starting from the week right after the May Holiday. Please check the timetable below and suggest your child write the dates down on his/her homework dairy as a reminder.

Pastoral Care Corner by Director of Pastoral Care – Mr Shane

This week I have just one quick message for pastoral care. I would like to remind parents about the importance of students not bringing valuable things to school. It is very difficult when a child loses something of financial or sentimental importance to them. We have had students bring electronics and large sums of money to school and misplacing them or losing them in some other way. We are working with students on both self-management as well as being a positive member of the community with respect and integrity. Children learn quickly from these lessons but there may be some envy or temptation to take something that does not belong to them. We take it very seriously at YK Pao, but we are always working on demonstrating best behaviour.

As we work on these important life lessons at school, I hope that parents will remind their children not to bring valuable items such as unnecessary amounts of cash, mobile phones or other electronics, or anything else of monetary and sentimental value to school. Should there be a need for this, please contact your child’s class teacher and we will be able to make appropriate arrangements for the item.

Message from the Library

With the closure of our Scholastic Spring Book Club, I am excited to announce that we will be working with Baker Books for our Summer Book Club. Baker Books provides a wider range of a great selection, and the latest titles to catch our eager reader’s eyes. With Baker Books, all you need to do is to go to our online ”Parent Pay” account (http://parentpay.bakerbooks.co.uk/clubs/YKPCHA2 Please see the picture below), choose books, and pay with your credit card. Please be reminded that the school doesn’t collect money, since everything should be paid online.

Your little ones should bring home a Baker Book Club catalogue these days. No worries if the catalogues are lost, because you are also able to find everything online.

No EP Classes or Late Supervision on April 24th or 25th

There will be no EP classes or late supervision on April 24th or 25th due to the Parent/Teacher Conferences as teachers will be busy meeting with parents. Please arrange transportation for your child accordingly.

Grand Prix Rehearsal and Performance

A reminder that the students involved are required to attend a rehearsal this Saturday morning. Students should meet at YK Pao at 11:50. The buses to Shanghai International Race Circuit will leave at 12:00 sharp.

IMPORTANT NOTICE

There has been a change – On Sunday morning students involved should arrive at school for 08:50 for 09:00 NOT 09:50 for 10:00:

Sunday           08:50              Singers arrive at YK Pao

                         09:00              Buses depart promptly

ALL STUDENTS MUST TAKE THE SCHOOL BUSES – STUDENTS CANNOT MAKE THEIR OWN TRAVEL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE REHEARSAL NOR THE PERFORMANCE. Entry to the Race Track is by bus permit only (or valid ticket). This is true on both Saturday AND Sunday.

The Saturday rehearsal is the one and only rehearsal at the race track and so it is vital that every student is there.

  • We expect the Grand Prix to start round 15:00.
  • The first bus (for those who elected to return after 30 minutes of the race itself) will depart the track round 15:45. Depending on traffic, this should arrive back at school at perhaps 17:00-17:15
  • The second bus (for those who elected to watch the whole race) should leave round 17:30 and should get back round 19:30. For this we are expecting quite a lot of traffic

Saturday Music Programme

This will run as normal EXCEPT that there will be NO SATURDAY CHOIR this week. This is due to Mr. Dominic being involved with the rehearsal for the performance for the Shanghai Formula 1 Grand Prix on Sunday.

Under 11 will be the team from Primary Campus and we shall have several friendlies on the morning of Saturday 19th, before the Under 11 Championship game at the end of the day with Soong Ching Ling.

Last Reminder of Sport for Life Sunday Football Dates:

A great start to the season for Y1 to Y4 teams. Thanks so much to the parents who braved the weather and came along on Sunday. Some amazing football played by our kids – well done!

Apologies to Year 1 parents with the buses mix up. Mr. Mike’s fault – sorry!

Week 2 Sunday Football – As the F1 will be in town this Sunday 20th of April, can we meet 10 minutes earlier at YKPS at 0850 please. The roads will be busier going to S.A.S. so that should help us.

Contact Parents: In case of bad air (over 150) or heavy rain or any other circumstances, please contact the representative for your child’s Year Group. Please do not contact before 0745 on Sunday!

One of the Coaches (usually Mr Mike) will be in contact with the Year Group representatives prior to the above time, after speaking to the football organizers.

Many thanks for your cooperation.

Parents – please understand we are trying extremely hard to match the level of competition with the level of your child, hence the different age categories and levels within. There is nothing quite so dispiriting as losing all games by a large margin, neither is it a good thing for children to win every game by a large margin. Please support the coaches in encouraging your students to become excellent ambassadors for YK Pao School and better players as a result. So far your support has been invaluable and I thank you for this.
