The Big Book Swap

 

Dear Parents,

We are pleased to announce that VHPS will be starting an outdoor library! But we need your help to fill it with wonderful treasures, so we are starting ‘The Big Book Swap’.

Please encourage your children to bring in one or two old books and swap them for someone else’s, at our new Rainbow Road library, that will be opened by Reading Man on the 16th of November.

Feel free to bring more than one book in but not bag fulls, please.

This will be a great opportunity to give the children a wider range of books to read and share their reading experiences.

Thank you for your continued support,

The English Team

Victory Heights Great Exhibition

Dear Parents,

On the 1st May 1851, Queen Victoria opened the Great Exhibition in Hyde Park, London.  This was an exciting time in British history, a time of innovation, invention and discovery.  If we travel into the not too distant future, our very own United Arab Emirates will be hosting the Expo 2020, reigniting the passion for solving problems faced in a rapidly changing world.

Here at Victory Heights Primary School, we have found inspiration from the pioneers of the past and have looked towards the leaders of the future to design a curriculum that builds the essential skills to search for and solve problems in tomorrow’s world.  This is the aim of our S.T.E.M curriculum.

You are therefore invited to the Multi-purpose Hall on Tuesday 28th November 2017 between 3pm and 4pm to witness a range of engineering projects from Year 2 – Year 6.  This will be our very own Victory Heights Great Exhibition.  We feel that it will be a superb prelude to the UAE’s Expo 2020.

We look forward to seeing you there.

Internal ECA Club Locations

Dear Parents,

Due to the overcrowding that is taking place after internal ECA clubs, collection at 3.30pm on Sunday and Wednesday will now be directly from the location of the club.

As always, the children’s safety is our number one priority, and this change will help to ensure that all children are always safe and accounted for.

Attached is a list of each of the internal ECA club locations for Sunday and Wednesday. Please note that, for the purposes of consistency over the week, Homework Club collection will still always be from the courtyard.

ECA Attendance

Dear Parents,

Please ensure that if your child is unable to attend their ECA, you inform the school by 11am on the day of the club at the latestThe easiest way to do this is to send an email to your child’s class teacher and activities@vhprimary.com, so that there is adequate time to inform the club leaders.

On Wednesday we had no fewer than 20 children who did not attend their selected ECA – many were collected beforehand by their parents with little or no notice to the school. This not only creates a significant health and safety risk, but it pulls support staff away from clubs in order to clarify absences. This impacts on the quality of the clubs that we can offer.

If your child is no longer able to attend their allocated ECA, please do let us know.

Kind Regards

The VHPS team
