Week 6 Sept 10-14, 2018

(Posted 6:45pm Thurs Sept 13) Please note due to Signal 1 being raised in Metro Manila and expected deteriorating weather all after school activities will be cancelled Friday Sept 14th. Students should make their way home as soon as classes end.
(Posted Wed Sept 12  12 noon) Please be advised after discussions with upper administration and with AD’s from ISB/TAS  a consensus decision has been made that ISB/TAS will not fly here for the volleyball exchange and ISM will not fly to the soccer exchange in Taipei.  With the approaching typhoon, it’s projected path and the ‘potential unknowns’ of how this storm may further track or develop in intensity all three schools have agreed this is the best course of action. The soccer and volleyball players will no doubt be disappointed however in the best interests of student safety this decision has been taken. 

The Cross Country and Dance exchanges this weekend to Bangkok and Jakarta will take place and proceed as planned.

C3/C4 soccer parents…the postponed festival from Sept 8th will be rescheduled and we will advise the date as soon as the Rifa board meets to confirm a date and venue.
