Dear Parents/ Students
The Chinese Community in Edinburgh will participate in the seventh Edinburgh Festival Carnival on 15 July 2018. This is an opportunity for you and your child to participate in the Carnival parade. For adult, you can join one of the Chinese ethnic minority “miao” dance and for children, there are 2 choices, either join the “walking in the jungle” which is an animal dance or “little shinning red star” which is particularly suitable for younger children. The practices for both the “miao” dance and “walking in the jungle” dances are being held at 11.30am every Saturday until 23rd June at our school.
Please be advised that our End of Year performance will be held on Saturday 23rd June 2018 at the school assembly hall at 12.45pm. There will be performances to showcase what our students have been learning both in their language classes as well as their Arts and Culture classes. If your child would like to have a solo performance, please let their class teacher, Deputy Headteacher May Li or Secretary for the Executive Committee Tammy Wong know.
As we head towards the end of this academic year of learning, please be informed that registration for next academic year (2018/19) will begin on 26 May 2018.
