This week, we have had a very sporty week with swimming lessons on Monday, PE lessons throughout the week and our EC – Grade 1 Sports Day on Thursday. The children thoroughly enjoyed all the fun and challenging games and activities that were organised by Mr Martin and the teachers were also put through their paces as they all joined in with the races. It was a very successful morning and we would like to thank all the parents who came along to support the event.
After such a successful Sports Day, I have some rather sad news about some personal items going missing. We have always considered our campus as a safe place, where this type of incident has never happened in the past. However, we would like to reiterate to parents and students the need to be vigilant about your personal property around the school. It may be advisable that students do not bring any expensive electronic devices or phones into school until these incidents have been further investigated.
Now back to more positive news. Book Week is coming to OWIS 20th - 24th November. Our theme this year is 'Escape to Everywhere' and there will be a visiting storyteller on Tuesday 21st November in school to run some workshops with our students. There will also be a book swap on Wednesday 22nd November and a Book Fair on Thursday 23rd and Friday 24th, so plenty of opportunities to refresh your home libraries and encourage everyone to read. The week will culminate with a special book week assembly on Friday 24th where students are encouraged to dress up as their favourite character and parade their wonderful costume while displaying their favourite book. The week will be filled with activities to celebrate the importance of reading and the joy of books and we look forward to sharing it with you all.
