Parent Opinion Survey

Each year, the school conducts an opinion survey amongst a sample of the school community. The data from the survey will be used to inform and direct our future school planning and improvement.  Thank you to the families who have already completed the survey. The survey will close on August 18.

Yangcheng Number One School – Sister School in China

I would like to take this opportunity to acknowledge our Host Families for opening up their homes to accommodate a student from China this year.    Thank you to Miss Cheng for organising a great week for our visitors. 

Hope to see everyone next week at the school concert :)
