FIRST TERM BREAK
The first term break will begin next week 12 March. We hope that students will use this time wisely to look into their studies.
FUND RAISER / YOUNG ENTERPRENUER’S DAY
There will be a fund raiser next term on Saturday, 14th April here at the school grounds. The idea was mooted last year by the teachers and is aimed at encouraging our students to take part in raising funds as an ongoing project. Part of the funds will go to a charitable fund that the SRC normally will contribute to at the end of the year.
Some of the parents have offered to chip in and help, we are happy to say through the Sri Ara Schools Parent Group.
The SASP have a dedicated e-mail at saspgroup[at]gmail.com. Please contact them and support our project and make this a success.
