Gruffalo Trip – 12th January

A week last Friday we had a fantastic visit to the HK Academy for Performing Arts to see the Gruffalo show. The children seemed to really enjoy the show and there will be plenty of follow up learning about the story and the performance itself. The children have enjoyed retelling the story with props in the outside area.

We gave out many of your tickets at the end. These tickets entitle you to discount on future shows. If you didn’t receive your ticket and would like it, please let the office know before Friday and they will send it home in your child’s bag.

Books Available – Donation to Charity

A collection of second hand books will be on sale in the entrance area from tomorrow, with a suggested donation of HK$5 per book. The books are for children aged 8 -12 years. Money raised will be donated to Catherine’s Puppies.
