We want to ensure that students are not spending too much time on their digital devices at home. As part of the STEAM Arcade Game Project, students will be spending more time coding in class than in previous terms. We want to emphasise that this is not part of their homework and we do not encourage students to work on this project from home.

Do you recycle?
Our very own environmental warriors Alice Harbottle, Remi Apostolopoulos and Oliver Moore were very upset with the low rate of recycling by AISHK students at recess and lunch. They decided one of the reasons for this was that the recycling bins were not accessible. These three students took it upon themselves to present their findings to Mr Shirley and Mr Christmas in hope to get more recycling bins installed on the field. Remi, Alice and Oliver presented a very convincing argument and can take credit for the newly installed recycling bins on the field. They now plan to work with the Environmental Committee to educate students about better habits for a better environment!
Students have a few more weeks left to borrow books from the library. Please remind your child to check if they have any overdue books at home because they need to return them as soon as possible.
