Dear Natalie, thank you very much for coming to 1ai as a Mystery Reader! Kids had a great time listening to the books, especially Xavier!
Greetings from the Art Room!
The yearly art show will be up in time for the music concerts this year on Tuesday, 24 May. However, the vernissage will be held on the afternoon/evening of Thursday 26th from 3:30 - 7:00pm, to allow families to come and view the artwork together.
Again, I’ll be asking for help to label and hang the show. We had an amazing team of teacher and parent volunteers last year, and were able to get almost all the work done in one afternoon. If you can lend a hand, please come along;
HELP Hang the ART SHOW: Friday, 20 May at 2:30 pm Please meet me in the Primary School Office.

As a culminating activity for the unit of inquiry 'Sharing The Planet', G1 students along with their G5 buddies had a seed planting lesson with native species seeds today. The seeds were provided by the University of HK in an effort to reintroduce them back to HK environment. The lesson involved learning about seeds and native plants, working with soil, potting, planting seeds and labeling. But the learning does not end there. The students under the guidance of G5 Deforestation Ambassadors will continue monitor and care for the plants keeping in mind the plants' role and importance for the environment as well as habitat for insects, birds, and animals. Well done, G1s!
Our Mystery Reader today was Scarlett's mom Julia. Students met her with our traditional Mystery Path and quickly set close together to listen to a story. The book Julia brought was the most unusual - it is all about a NAME! The story was about a little girl who lost her name and went on multiple adventures to find it. This particular book has Scarlett as the girl's name. But, as far as I understood, you could order this type of books with customised names. What a wonderful idea! Thank you, Julia.
Dear Parents and Students, here is a link to the library blog about the inquiry circles we held just before the Easter break. Within the scope of the Sharing The Planet unit and learning all about how plants grow, the students inquired into different topics by asking questions, researching for information and sharing their knowledge. Please follow this link to the blog.
