Success for Sixes!

Our Year 6 students recently sat Progress Tests in English, Maths and Science to mark the end of their time in primary Key Stage 2. At Taylor’s International School we are dedicated to a culture of excellence, and so we are both delighted and proud to announce the following results:
96% of students achieved Level 4 and above in English Reading.
88% of students achieved Level 4 and above in English Writing.
86% of students achieved Level 4 and above in Maths.
88% of the students achieved Level 4 and above in Science. 

Moving on up!

With their recent success to build upon, the students from Year 6 attended a three day transition programme in the secondary section of the school. The programme gives them the opportunity to ‘feel’ the difference between primary and secondary schooling, and to meet new friends with whom they are going to share that experience. Each year, the leadership teams of both sections of the school look at how to make the transition easier and more effective. Current Year 7 students shared their advice in the form of posters and videos. This annual migration of students is always an exciting time in primary school, and I take this opportunity to wish each of them the best of luck. Keep up the good work!

At the same time, all students from Reception to Year 5 had a preview of the year to come, by spending a couple of hours in their 2018 year group. Teachers organised a range of taster activities for the students to carry out. 

Helping Hands

Our Charity Event on Friday 10th November was a resounding success, with every class from Early Years to Year 6 running a stall to raise proceeds for Community Kampung Pandan amongst other local charity organisations. The final total has not been announced, but a little birdie told me it was in excess of RM20K!!
Stalls with games, craft and food filled the courtyard and the school hall. My personal favourite was the ‘Massage Centre’, where, for only RM2, I received a very nice head and shoulders massage from 3Y students. Huge thanks to all staff, students and parents who collaborated to make this event something to be proud of. More details in next week’s newsletter, but for now, enjoy some photos in the gallery.
