28 February 2020 - Coming Together As A Community
Dear Parents,

It is lovely and such a blessing to be back at school on a normal day. There are not too many things greater than to see the playground full of happy, smiling children. I am sure you would agree with me. The purpose of this circular is to update the school community on all the steps that we took to combat this emergency. It was a fraught few days but I was so thankful of the way we all pulled and came together as a community. To gather over 3000 signatures is just simply amazing and I have to hand on heart, say thank you to all of you. I would also like to thank the Bomba for their magnificent response. At times they were excavating 6 meters in order to extinguish the flames. As a school we have learn a lot about dealing with crises like this. Though, I hope that we don’t have to put it to use again.

Thank you for your continued support. 

Kind regards
Stefano Piumatti
Principal of Taylor’s International School Puchong
