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 …

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. …

6th March

As mentioned in an earlier post, the second Parents-Teachers group meeting took place on the 3rd March.

Thanks to those parents who made an effort to turn up.

There were enough attendees to elect a committee (although we still want MORE PARENTS to attend because it’s YOUR group, people) but we’re definitely moving in the right direction.

The full minutes of the meeting – assiduously collated by Puan Fatimah (for which, thanks are due) – will be published in due course.

In the meantime, please be aware that a newsletter will be on the way to all parents later this week (i.e. between 7-11 March).

This will contain a short précis of the meeting covering the major points that parents need to be aware of.

We need your feedback on some of these issues to ensure that the decisions we take are agreed by the majority. …

Note for a Parent Teachers group meeting

5th February

Just a quick note for all Ara Schools parents.

You may be aware (assuming that the ‘darling’ offspring brought the notice home) that we are planning to get a Parent Teachers group together.
If you’re not aware, well, we are.

To get the ball rolling, the first meeting will be Friday 11th February at 5.30pm at the school, and we’d love to see as many parents as possible.

Just one thing though.

If you’re planning on coming, please let the school know so that we can make sure that we’re not all sitting on each other’s knee!
Thanks, and if you can make it, I look forward to seeing or meeting you there.

Steve Cowan
