Fabulous classical concert in Poly Theatre – still few tickets

Tuesday May 30th at 7.30pm

Amy Childers still has a few tickets for this fabulous concert at the remarkable architect designed Poly Theatre

Even if you are not a classical music enthusiast -it is worth going just to experience being insider this remarkable Zaha Hadid building.

We are fortunate, following the untimely death of this world renowned architect to have one of her frontier busting buildings here in our city.

See Amy for details – do not miss this chance for some serious “KULTUR” and some stunning music by the renowned Radio France, Philarmonia Orchestra.



Reducing rubbish – easy new idea from Admissions

Now that we have all reduced the number of rubbish bins and plastic bags in our classes and offices, what do you now do with those small bits and pieces like tissues, orange peel or pencil shavings that accumulate throughout the day?

Grace Kim has made some small paper boxes using recycled paper. If you would like a template or to bring a couple of your students over  to our offices to see how easy they are to make – you are welcome to drop by.

Let’s all play our part in improving sustainability in our school and saving our beautiful planet.

(More importantly we need to reduce the amount of rubbish we make – so we do not need bins of any shape or size….)
