CISSA touch rugby

Training is on today at 3.10pm on the field for anyone in Grade 5-8 wanting to take part in the CISSA touch rugby this year.  Also,  please remember to sign up to the team on Veracross. See you out there, coach Marsh, Kay and O’Brien.

Cafe use for MYP/DP Students

Due to a shift in our approach to Cafe use, only students in Grade 10 and up are allowed use of the Cafe without parental supervision. This means that MYP students in Grades 6-9 MAY NOT use the Cafe during break or lunch (nothing new), or after school without THEIR parent with them.

This means that the only time a 6-9th grade student should be in the Cafe is with their parent, not their friend’s parent… not someone’s friend’s, buddy’s, cousin’s, aquantance’s parent… their parent.

The downstairs portion of the Cafeteria, however, is a cool, comfortable, climate controlled area that IS available to MYP students until 4:15pm each school day for those that need to remain for ASA’s.

Please see Mr. Bratton with questions.

Would the person who has it please return it as soon as possible. Many thanks.

Changed access to the Café after school

Dear Students,

Please remember that only students in Grades 10-12 may access the Café in the Centre after school.  Students in Grades 5-9 who are registered for an activity that starts after 4:00 may wait on the first level of the cafeteria.

Thank you,

Mrs Tyoschin

CISSA Touch Rugby is back

The CISSA rugby tournaments are being played in Shanghai in 5 and a half weeks so we need to get training.  If you are interested and in grade 5 to 8 please come to the first training of the year tomorrow, Thursday the 13th of August.  For those of you new to the school touch rugby is a mixed girls and boys sport and is a great way for the girls to teach the boys a thing or 2 about sport. Don’t forget to bring a hat, sunscreen and a drink bottle. See you on the pitch at 3.10pm.  Coaches Marsh, Kay and O’Brien.

School Bells

Each week’s school bell is a 15 – 20 second song clip that is chosen by a different homeroom and advisory group. Classes that choose to submit a bell will hear their clip sometime in the upcoming 36 school weeks. If there aren’t enough bells submitted, then individual / teacher bells are also accepted. If your class would like to submit a bell, please drop it onto the server at the following address:

Studentlargestorage / Music / School Bells.
Name your file like this: ClassName – Title – Artist.mp3

Here’s some rules / advice:

1. All lyrics must be appropriate.
2.The file should be high quality (not taken from a crackly YouTube video, e.g.)
3. The file must not have a GarageBand metronome ticking in the background. (If you need help turning it off, then please see Miss Keus)
4. The song must be less than 20 seconds long (15 seconds is preferred).

You can see when your video will be played, or find the name of the current week’s song, at the following link.

For more information, please see Miss Keus.

Please return Design Centre equipment

Throughout the year, faculty, staff and students have been borrowing equipment from the Design Centre.

Equipment includes cameras (Canon SX20 IS, Nikon Coolpix P100), tripods, SD cards, card-readers, tools from the workshop, etc.

Please return any such equipment as soon as possible so an inventory can be taken for this school year.

Green Team Vegetable/Flower Sale

The rains have finally stopped and so the Green Team will have its last sale of the year. There will be freshly cut sunflowers, green pepper plants, basil, cucumbers and other assorted vegetables.

The vegetables will be available in the center foyer at 3 PM.  Support the green team and its quest for a healthy planet.
