I do hope children are refreshed after our recent short holiday. Whilst children were away from school on 9th and 10th February, all staff were in school on the Friday for a full day of CPD (Continuous Professional Development). The day proved to be extremely beneficial for all staff where a range of workshops and training session took place. Teachers were able to choose those they felt were most relevant to them and the day was a full and productive one. This training is in addition to our usual weekly professional development for staff. 

In other news - can I remind parents of children who have enrolled this term that a survey has been sent to you to fill in. We send such surveys to all new parents in order to see how we can keep improving as a school. Can I please encourage you to take the time to fill it in - the survey has been sent to your family e-mail account. 

Lastly can I inform parents that the Awal Muharram public holiday in September has been changed from 21st September to 22nd September. This will not affect the students because we have already allocated both days as school holidays. Teachers will now have Thursday 21st September as a Training Day with Friday as the public holiday.

The school calendar is available on the school website (http://www.pc.tis.edu.my/news-events/school-calendar)
