5th April

Dear Parents & Students

JAPANESE DISASTER FUND

We are very pleased and proud that the students of the school have, from the smallest to the biggest, exhibited compassion for those struck by the disaster and devastation that hit Japan recently. The Students have come up with marvellous ideas to help and we would like to do our best to encourage their compassion and desire to come to the aid of others in times of such despair.

As mentioned in our earlier newsletter, the Sri Ara Students (“Araians”) through “Mufti Week” have raised just over RM600/-.

The main event, however for the charity drive for the Japan Disaster Fund will be the Food, Fun Fair and Jumble Sale, this Saturday, 9th April.

We are very positive of a very healthy turnout as several hundred ‘flyers’ have been distributed and posters posted in condominiums, restaurants, cafeterias, clinics, …

5th April

Dear Parents & Students

Charity Drive

We are proud to announce that the students collected about RM612.60 from the ‘Mufti’ held last week.  This included donations by some of our parents.

The main event for the charity drive for the Japan disaster fund will be the Food & Funfair and Jumble Sale, this Saturday 9 April.  It will be a replacement day for the school so attendance is compulsory.  Students will have to be in school by 8 am and go home at 3 pm.

We urgently need parents and students to help with this event. More specifically:

We need donations of clothes, books, toys or anything else you have lying around that we can sell. It won’t be much of a sale if there is nothing to buy or sell. Cash donations would be more than welcome too of course!
We need volunteers, parents who …

10th March

Dear Parents,

Traffic Movement

Traffic flow during peak drop off and pick up times at building No. 23 has not been smooth lately due to limited space.  Therefore, we have cleared the parking area to make it easier for parents to park and pick up or drop your children off. Please adhere to this traffic flow diagram at all times (noting the advised left turn out of the gate for your own safety):

To ease traffic flow, secondary school students should be picked up or dropped off at building No. 13 during and shortly before or after normal school hours. At any other time, please use No.23.

First Term Break 12 – 20 March

The first term break starts on Friday, 12 March until Sunday, 20 March.  Sri Araians, go have a good break, and come back fresh to start a new term. …
