Brunei National Day celebrations took place this week and it was wonderful to see so many people getting together to mark Brunei’s 38th National Day in Bandar Seri Begawan. Our students across both Bandar and Seria campuses hosted special celebration assemblies this week to mark the occasion.
We are very excited to launch the Mighty Write 2022 next week. More information will follow within the special Mighty Write folder on Seesaw. We plan to showcase writing across all Primary year groups over the next few weeks.
Pre Kindy and Kindy were full of joy this week. It was wonderful to see them interacting and learning together as they continue to develop both academically and socially. We know that these opportunities are currently not available in school to the rest of Primary, but please be assured we are doing all we can to ensure a swift return to on-campus learning. As soon as we receive any updates, we will inform parents and immediately welcome students back to where they belong, at school.
A special thank you to Lauren, who this week joined the House Captains to launch the next House Challenge. This is an excellent activity to be enjoyed by family and friends.
Writers of the Week and Stars of the Week continue to be celebrated. Look out for the certificates in Seesaw over the coming days and check the Seesaw Class Blogs to see who has achieved excellence this week.
Seesaw is an excellent tool and a vital component of our Virtual School provision. Both the Seesaw Class and Seesaw Family apps have slightly different functionality. We recommend using both apps in combination in order to fully benefit and we have created a simple overview of the features.
This week, Year 6 have been calculating fractions, Year 5 have been thinking scientifically, Year 4 have been debating, Year 3 have been traveling with light, Year 2 have been adding and subtracting, Year 1 have been exploring, Reception have been very creative, Kindy have been using their phonics sounds, Pre Kindy have been painting on different surfaces and we have all been hoping for a return to ‘normal’ school.
Enjoy the extended weekend break.
