I wanted to take this opportunity to thank parents for their flexibility and support during the set-up of JVLR. Remember, if you have any questions or concerns the first person to talk to is your child's homeroom teacher.
We are using SeeSaw to share assessment tasks with parents, please take the time to talk to your child about what they learnt from a particular topic they have been exploring. Ask questions such as:
What did you know and understand at the beginning of the unit?
What did you change your mind about?
If you could do this unit again, what would you do differently?
What choices did you make and take whilst learning about this unit?
You may remember our Grade 4s recently went on a visit to St.Catherine's orphanage. Below is the response we received:
We acknowledge your generous contribution of sugar, pulses, oil, wheat, bath and washing soap, farsan, biscuits, chocolates, etc with a sense of deep gratitude. May you be blessed as you reach out to us keeping in mind the deprived section of society especially the girl child at St. Catherine’s Home. It is through your support and encouragement in small and big ways we are able to carry on this noble mission.
May God bless and reward you for all your goodness towards our Home and children.
Sr. Silvy Jose
Thank you for all your continued support,
Miss Lisa Hughes
Head of Primary @ OIS JVLR
