Grade 5 Camp

Today we had a great presentation from Asia Pacific Adventures giving us lots of details about the camp. There will be many challenges for you on the camp, including a traverse, hiking, orienteering, abseiling and camping!

Please make sure that your parents have returned the camping form back to us. The deadline is next Monday.

Remember you are not allowed to bring your mobile phones, jewelry, or any ipods or electronic devices such as PSP's. If you're not sure what you can bring ask me.

Don't wear jeans, crocs, flip flops, sandals. You will need two pairs of trainers. One that will stay dry, and one pair that you can get wet.

You should bring long sleeve tops and trousers. It will get cool in the evenings and there are mosquitoes.  You will need to bring a hat. No hat, no play!

Read the packing list you have been given. You should also take responsibility for your own belongings and pack your own bag before you go.

It is recommended that you don't bring your good digital camera. You can buy a disposable camera, and all of your teachers have digital cameras and will be taking lots of photos and they'll be available on the web site and you can take a copy away on your USB drives after the October break.

Charity Store
A big well done to the charity store community who ran their first store today for grade 1 and K5. They raised over 100 HKD! More details soon in the newsletter.

Bake Sale
A HUGE well done to the bake sake group who have added up the money from their first bake sale, and they made over 1400 HKD! It was highly popular and I know lots of teachers who are looking forward to the next one :-)

Communities
The other communities should be following their plans and looking at what they have to do next. Including who they should contact and how they can get started. There will be more time at the end of the day tomorrow to talk as a group.
