It is great that so many students are playing out on the fields. There are a number of balls (football, rugby, basketball) that you can play with. To help everyone to find the ball of their choice (and to stop balls being left in the far flung corners of the school), please put the ball back into the basket when you have finished with it. Your friends and other students will appreciate your thoughtfulness!
Beginning on Tuesday, SPB coaches will provide free soccer sessions for boys and girls in Gr 5 – Gr 7. Sessions will run from 2.45pm – 4pm. Sign up via mobile or Wechat. See poster above for more details.
You may have noticed that we have 2 new outdoor table tennis tables outside the gym entrance. These are for everyone to enjoy. Please take care of the tables, the bats and the balls. We have a limited supply of bats and balls so please put them back in the box when you are finished playing so the next people can enjoy playing too.
For Grade 5 – 8 boys and girls. 3.15pm – 4.45pm. No need to sign up – just meet on the field.
