I have 2 children who have been students at Ara Schools since they were in Standard 1. Ashvini Sivakumar has just completed Year 6 and Ashvin Sivakumar has just completed Year 4.
The first time my husband and I walked into this school we loved it. The environment and surroundings, the students and teachers were all so cheerful. It was so different from the conventional schools that we were used to.

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.

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.

The new Parent Teachers group met for the first time on February 11th, 2011. You can read the minutes here!
The next meeting will be on Thursday, 3rd March at 08.30am. All parents are invited to attend.

However, this will only work if parents want it to. Therefore, if you are interested in being involved in such a group, could you please provide us with your name and contact number and available day and time to meet on the form provided and hand this to the administration office as soon as possible.
