Locker Shocker

Dear MSUS Students,

do you have a locked lock on your locker?! If not please make a change to your locker today. Your Advisor or Ms Zoe Tang can help with all locker troubles.



To game or not to game…??

Now that the Gaming Room has closed many people have asked the question…. where can I play computer games in school at lunchtime?

Here is the answer:

  • The cafeteria and all hallways are tech free zones
  • Devices are permitted in the Library for doing assignments or personal research (not for games)
  • Computers may not be used outside at lunchtimes; they should be away in your lockers

The simple answer is to take a break from playing games whilst you are at school. Use the time to be present with your friends, play games or sports inside or outside, read, chat or discuss the learning from your classes.

Questions? Please ask!


Goodbye Gaming Room

Hello Gamers! The cooler weather has arrived and the chance to breathe fresh air and take a break from your screens is here. The gaming room is closing until further notice. Go outside, play a game, be in nature, have a walk around the track or simply take time away from your devices. What a wonderful opportunity to do something different. Enjoy yourselves!

ELL Toolkits

Dear MYP Teachers,

Please return your ELL toolkit to either Ruth or the Library before Tuesday next week. This will enable us to update the name charts for next school year. They are all in blue plastic folders and have a barcode.

Thanks very much!

Can you operate a sewing machine?

Calling all sewing machinists…..

We have 4 new sewing machines in school all set up and ready to go. We just need experts to help us to support the students showing them how to use them and how to take care of them. Can you help?

Please let Ruth or Anna know if you are willing to offer your time and skills! Many thanks.

Sign up for the Science Fair!

This year we have an amazing group of Scientific Superstars in Grade 9 who are dying to share their Science projects with you. If you would like to bring your class to the Science Fair in the PAC on Tuesday June 9th from the end of break until lunchtime, drop Ruth an email with the time you want to visit so that she can schedule you in. Social Distancing to keep us safe!
