HIST PRIMARY CAMPUS NEWS and INFORMATION
Bulletin 12, Week 5, Semester 2, 2017-18
Dear primary school parents and families,
It has been another exciting and enthralling two weeks at the primary school in Tianjin. On the 23rd of March, the primary school department convened its first parents’ association meeting for the new semester. This meeting was attended by our international principal – Mr. Erwin, primary school leadership and members of the parents’ committee. Participants shared lunch together and an overview of our department’s moral education program for this semester was conveyed. Furthermore, friendly dialogue about the food provided by our school’s cafeteria was exchanged. Many improvements are being made because of the communication and collaboration between the school and its parent committee. For example, it has been decided that the cafeteria will now provide healthier snacks such as sandwiches and cupcakes during recess and afternoon tea. Interestingly, these cupcakes are being made from Mr. Erwin’s own home-made secret recipe which he kindly shared with cafeteria staff.

On the afternoon of the 23rd of March, staff and students were treated to a special guest lecture by Dr. Pan - the father of one of our students from 6B. The title of his speech was ”Infectious disease prevention in Spring". Our students were privileged to hear from an expert in this area and undoubtedly learnt a lot of practical knowledge about staying happy and healthy. Germs and infectious diseases spread faster as the weather warms up so it is important that we all take the necessary precautions so that we don’t get sick. Immediately after the lecture by Dr. Pan, year 6 students and their parents remained in the theatre to hear another talk. This time, the presentation centred on briefing students on transitioning into year 7. International principal Robert Erwin started off the proceedings by giving a speech on the importance of staying on the Haileybury pathway. Next, Cheryl McKenna, the head of English at our school introduced the Cambridge middle school English program to the audience. Middle school students under the guidance of Ms. Black (Head of middle school English) also spoke about the many unique clubs available in the afternoons. Lastly, James Kennedy (head of VCE) explained to parents about the advantages of the Australian VCE program. Haileybury offers a world-class English program and the internationally recognized VCE program. Most people would agree that the best English as a Second Language program in the world is the Cambridge English program. This English program is precisely what is being used in our school from years 1-10, with students in years 10 and 12 taking another internationally renowned program – the VCE.

Three international school took part in the competition and these were Haileybury, Hope International and Hui Jia International school.

Parents and spectators were impressed by the dazzling basketball skills displayed by our boys on the day, our A team came second (a win and a loss) and our B team came first (two wins). Congratulations to all the year 6 boys were participated in the competition and special thanks must go out to their coach Mr. Fang as well as Mr. Sun and Mr. Webb who accompanied and guided the boys on the day.
