Principal’s Message Vol.44 – Feb 2015
Dear Island CA Community, 您好.
Happy Chinese New Year, Gong Xi Fa Cai!
Thank you to everyone for contributing to the success of the Chinese New Year School Fair. It looks as if there was a lot of fun and learning involved in addition to the colour, costumes and decorations.
We are in the process of confirming staff movements and placements for the 2015-2016 school year. We are very pleased to be welcoming to Island CA Tracy Ausburn who is currently teaching in an international school in Vietnam. The plan is for her to teach either a year 2 or 3 class, and to be the Literacy Coordinator for the school. We are also pleased to welcome Charlie Owen full time to Island CA (she is currently working 2 or 3 days a week at both Island CA and Small World Kindergarten. Charlie will continue in her dual role as member of the Senior Leadership Team — with Joy Penner — with oversight of areas such as Learning Support. Both Joy and Charlie will continue in their D.P. positions. Sadly, we will farewell Christine Chan, Ilodi Jacobs and Ruth Lee, as they either move overseas or follow a new direction in Hong Kong. We have a few months to wish them God Speed and thank them for all their hard work and service to Island CA.
Teachers are looking forward to meeting with you at the Student-Led Conferences tomorrow. Each conference has a maximum time of 15 minutes from the scheduled start time. Please help teachers to ensure that each conference starts on time and finishes on time. Then everyone will be happy! If you need more time, please email the teacher to arrange another meeting time over the next few weeks.
May God richly bless you and your family,
