Dear Grade 1 Parents,
Happy Chinese New Year! Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Thank you to all the parents and children that contributed to the Chinese New Year Assembly and the fun activities during lunch time.
After School Activities
This week is the first week of After School Activities. To avoid any confusion, please make sure your child knows what they are doing and on which day.
Last week we saw a poorer-than-usual air quality as you know. KIS have been working hard to update procedures and protocols in line with our Air Quality Policy. Below are the changes:
Outdoor activity thresholds have been changed:
- AQ 125 – Students with asthma related or sensitive respiratory will remain indoors, in the library
- AQ 150 – EY through to Grade 1 cease all outdoor activity
- AQ 175 – Grade 2 through to Grade 12 cease all outdoor activity
All G1 air conditioner wall units have been fitted with an air filter. There is some evidence that this is effective in lowering the AQI reading. (This is happening school wide.)
