Welcome Back

4/12/2010

 
Welcome back after the Easter break. We are now into a busy time of year. We have the exhibition quickly approaching us and student, parent teacher conferences next week. All parents should have received a letter from the youngest sibling today with the times of the conferences next Tuesday or Wednesday.

I will be sending out a parent questionnaire tomorrow, please take a moment to fill it in.

I wanted to share a great holiday experience that I had. As all my students know I am a very keen scuba diver. I have been diving all over Asia and one of my dreams has been to dive with a whaleshark. This holiday that dream came true when I met a whaleshark at Tubbataha in The Philippines on a five day scuba diving trip. I have logged the sighting with the whaleshark website and hopefully I will have more information about the actual shark that I saw soon. Here is the video I took underwater.
Update: Here is a video I created of my holiday at Tubbataha
 
It was great to see so many parents today at our exhibition information session. The presentations that we used are available here and you can keep track of everything that is happening with the process of the exhibition on the wiki.

All of the students should be visiting the wiki and looking at the group lists and thinking about their problems. I have spoken to many of you about why we have not  accepted your group by making it green. Think carefully for tomorrow and have a second problem just in case!

Four Square Video

10/29/2009

 
In early October I filmed the students playing four square on the rooftop. I have always been impressed with how they play four square, not only their high ability but the way they all play together fairly and with determination. Here is a short video to honor a HKA tradition.
