Dear Parents, Teachers and Staff,

Well done to the High School for their wonderful athletics day. Even though it was a very hot afternoon the students competed strongly and the competition between the houses continues. In this event, the Red House came away with a narrow, but hard fought victory. Overall, we have held three events so far this year, Yellow House holds a very slim lead over the other houses. We look forward to this rivalry continuing over the year.

Last week the Grade 9 students hosted a group of war veterans. They listened to them speak about their memories and the sacrifices they made to Indonesia. An interesting and moving experience that links to our vision, “Being proud of our national identity”.

Our ICAS 2018 tests started last Friday. ICAS testing is an assessment designed to challenge a student’s knowledge and understanding over a broad range of levels of difficulty and highlighting students strengths and weaknesses. The final tests will be held at the end of this week.

The Elementary Arts Committee are holding a batik event over the next two weeks. This is to celebrate Hari Batik Nasional. We hope you get a chance to drop by and see this wonderful activity.

Finally, it is heartening to share the Creativity, Activity, Service (CAS) undertaken by Arthur Theo, Bryan, Matthew Go, Gading, Angelo and Anthony. These six Grade 12 boys raised 26 million rupiah for the village Gurusina, in the Bajawa District of NTT (Flores). Their actions really exemplify the type of student Sekolah Ciputra strives to produce.

Have a great week.
