Time flies so fast, we are now half way through Term 2. We can’t believe that Christmas is coming to our door very soon. All the teachers and children are now busy preparing for Christmas decoration as well as practice for the coming Christmas Carol on 21st December.
Here is a recap of our progress in November. We celebrated Teachers’ Day on the 20th, the children made Teachers’ Day cards to thanks their teachers for all the effort thay have made to teach and take care of them. On behalf of the teacher, we would like to sincerely thank all the parents and the children for your lovely gifts, fruits and flowers. You have really made our day!
Our student enrollment continues to increase. In the month of November and early December, we welcomed Quoc Anh, Minh Anh, Thiên Kim, Ngoc Anh and Khoi Nguyen to Rosemont family. All the new children have settled very quickly into their classes. We hope that they will have a great time and will go along with RAIS during their kindergarten life.
The recap of the weekly themes includes: Jobs and Occupations, Different Means of Transport for Penn 3 and Penn 4 and different kinds of animals (farm animals, jungle animals, sea animals ad zoo animals). Each theme introduces new vocabulary, explores new math concepts, and special excursions with precious practical experiences.
For Jobs and Occupation, we had a visit to Dr. Lieu Dental Clinic to understand the job of a dentist. We had an opportunity to observe how the dentist take care of our teeth. The dentist also taught us how to take care and brush our teeth properly. We also had an wonderful excursion to a fire station where we could see the real fire trucks and meet the fire fighters at. They talked to us about their jobs and showed us the parts of the Fire trucks and the functions of each parts.
On the last day of the month, we had a great outing to Thu Le zoo. That was an amazing experience for the children to see different animals at the zoo and feed some of them. They also had a chance to observe the job of the zoo keepers to know how they take care of the animals at the zoo.
The above activities are really useful to the learning theme and we are sure that those will be unforgettable memories for each child.
For Christmas preparation, we would like to call for our parents’ co-operation to make the coming Christmas event a great success. At 10am on Friday, 21st of December – the last day before Christmas holiday, we will organise Christmas carol, each class will perform a Christmas song which they have been practicing during the month of December. So parents, please arrange your time to come to the Christmas Carol where you can see your child’s first performance in life. Your presence at the performance is a great motivation to your child as well as to the school. The teachers of your child class will inform you what dress to prepare for your child’s performance. After the performance, we will have Christmas party. We ask for your kindness to support the Christmas event by sending party treats, Christmas decoration… If possible, please send your support by 20 December. It would be so good if a tall and big dad can be a Santa on that day. The school will give Christmas gift to each students through the Santa Clause but if parents would like to send gift for your child, you are welcome!
Please be advised that Rosemont will be closed from Monday 24th December 2018 until Tuesday 1st January 2019. School will resume on Wednesday 2nd January 2019.
We wish you all a happy and safe Christmas holiday and a very healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
WITH MUCH JOY,
