A few weeks to go until the end of the school year and we are working at full-steam to ensure that our parent community enjoys the ride ahead.
Here are some of the many items of interest coming up soon:
THE PTC NOMINATIONS
We are delighted to announce the PTC Executive Committee for the new school year. The committee will be much larger with 11 members, which will enable us to plan more exciting events next year.
We still have three positions available. If you are interested please email the Parent Relations Executive, Shelley Hamilton at firstname.lastname@example.org
Please welcome our new and re-running PTC members:
PTC FAMILY FUN DAY
Saturday, 9th June, will be abuzz with activities at our first ever Fun Day at school. The afternoon will include experiences for young and old, such as “beat-the-keeper”, “water-balloon-toss”, “Tug-of-war”, “Bouncy castle” and an awesome “Water-slide” to name a few, so remember the bathing suits, sun hats and sunblock.
And get your throwing skills practised for our “Dunk-the-Teacher” tank!
We will also have some yummy foods such as Boerie rolls, hot dogs, samosas, and pizza, which you can enjoy on your picnic blanket with live entertainment on stage.
Please RSVP to attend our Fun Day and stand in line to win some great lucky draw prizes.
The PTC are also looking for parent volunteers to help sell refreshments at the drinks’ stalls on the day. Please sign up here if you are able to help for an hour time slot.
TEACHER AND FACULTY APPRECIATION DAY
We will be hosting another Appreciation afternoon for the Teachers and Staff of GEMS (Singapore) on Tuesday 12th June. We will communicate nearer the time as to food items that we will be asking for.
In the meantime, we are encouraging the students to write a note of appreciation to their teacher/s. This will take place during lunchtime outside the canteen on the 5th and 6th June.
We are requesting parents to volunteer to help students with their messages on these days. Please sign up here.
We will be collecting donations of pre-loved school uniforms and sporting kits during the last week of term and during the school holidays. We will then arrange a Used Uniform Sale during the last few days of holidays and the first two days of the new school year.
All money raised will be donated to a local charity – Siloam Xperience.
More details to be communicated nearer to the end of the term. If any parents wish to sell their uniforms instead, you are welcome to list them on the PTC Classifieds page on Facebook.
