The children worked so hard for their big day last week, I can’t tell you how proud I was of Reception C during their Spotlight performance! For many of the children this was their first experience performing on the stage and it really was a pleasure to see the delight on all their faces. Thank you for your support on the day!

Next week we will be concluding our Sharing the Planet unit, however it is not too late to send in photos of your child taking Action. This could be taking care of animals, a sibling, the environment, being responsible, being independent etc. Please send us photos or drop us a line if you see your child taking action at home!

Wherever you are this summer, drop us a postcard at: CDNIS Summer Travels 2017, 36 Nam Long Shan Road, Aberdeen, Hong Kong or take a picture (tell us where the picture was taken) and email it to us.
