A Note from Ms. Amy’s Desk

Term 1/Wk 4

With cooler weather over the week and the leaves turning brown, it’s time for our little ones to be “layered-up” as autumn sets in. Autumn is also the season for flu and cold it is important for us to continue to be vigilant to ensure the little ones get enough rest and a balance diet with lots of fluid. Please do send in a light jacket and change the regular water bottle into a thermal flask to ease our young learners into winter.

It is the Preschool Division Mid-Autumn Festival tradition for our young learners to get creative and make a lantern out of recyclable materials (e.g. milk cartons, egg cartons, etc…) with their family. The details will be sent home in your child/children’s communication folders today. This not only encourage family closeness but also provides a platform for our students to be aware of the importance of being a good steward of the natural resources that Mother Earth has blessed us with ~ learning about “Reduce, Recycle and Reuse”; and leading a responsible and sustainable lifestyle.
