Important : Internal ECA Allocation( Year 1 – Year 6)

Dear Parents,

Please check your email accounts .Within the email,you will find your child’s internal ECA allocation for the term.

In almost all instances, we have been able to allocate your child to one of their preferences.How ever, please be aware that due to the sheer numbers of children that are participating in ECA’S this term, this will not always be their first choice!.( Some of the more popular groups were the 1st preference of over 100 children!).We truly feel that this new randomised system is fairer for all.

Kind Regards ,
The VHPS Team

P.S :- If it looks as though your child has not been allocated a club on a day that you have requested, it is likely to be because they have been accepted on a sports club on the same day. Mr Simmonds will be in touch regarding this.

VHPS Bear

Dear Parents,

At Victory Heights Primary School, our FS1 children are about to finish their first full week of school. This is a precious moment in their journey through their school life, and so we wanted to give the children a keepsake to commemorate the occasion. For this reason, they will be bringing home a VHPS bear on a key ring.

Furthermore, additional bears will also be available to purchase in the entrance areas of FS1 and FS2. They are perfect as a gift for other children, friends, or family members, and are priced as shown below:
13cm bear (with key ring attachment) AED 39.00
28cm bear AED 59.00

There is also an option to order bears that are personalised with your child’s name on the back (28cm bears only) for AED 69.00. For the personalised bears, order forms will be available – any bears ordered on the day can be delivered to the school within one week.

Squad Update

Dear Parents

All squads and clubs will have their last session of this term next week. Please read the information to see what’s happening with regard squads after the holidays.

Next week will be our last football squad training for boys and girls and these will not carry on after the holidays. I would like to thank all of those children who have been committed and dedicated members of the squads. All teams have a finals tournament next week (separate emails will be sent).

Contact and touch rugby squads will replace the football ones and emails have been sent to parents with information regarding  times and days.

Netball, cross country and Swim squad will stay at the same time on the same day and all members of these clubs will hopefully carry on. Please let Mr Simmonds know if this is not the case.

Squad Trials

Monday 12th December – U9 (Y3/4) boys and girls basketball trials 6.45am MPH

Tuesday 13th December – U11 (Y5/6) boys and girls basketball trials 6.45am MPH

There will be a tag rugby trial for Years 2 and 3 boys on Wednesday 14th December at 6.45am. Please attend this trial or let Mr Simmonds know if you can’t but would like to be considered, so he can announce the squad before the end of term. PE kit must be worn.

We are hoping to start basketball in term 2, however this will depend on the availability of facilities, so it won’t start straight away. Information will be sent out in due course.

Kind regards
