News / Nunn Road / 2006 / March 2006 (E53)

Dear parents,

I am happy to meet all the children again after the school break. A mother told me that her girl called my name and talked about the kindergarten in her dreams. I am glad that the children look forward to come back to Nania. They told us about where they had been or what they had done during their holidays.

During the school holidays, I met with a hundred primary school teachers in a workshop. We discussed teachers’ roles, children’s development, communicating with children and teachers’ emotion management. I was pleased to know that the government is encouraging teaching with love and joy. During the workshop, I also reminded myself that adults need to be more aware about our behavior, emotion and most important our beliefs as these effect our children for their whole life time. Children do not learn what we teach but they learn who we are.

Enclosed with this newsletter is letter from Mr. Ong and Junko. Taska Nania will be managed by a new private limited company named Life Spirit Sdn. Bhd. Please read their letter for more information.

We will have a change of staff members in April. One of the Japanese Class assistant teachers, Teacher Lim is leaving to look after her sick mother-in-law. Our ex-staff, Teacher Ong, is coming back to assist Junko.

Lastly, please take note that during the celebration of Hirotomo and Por Hao’s birthdays and Easter Day which fall on Fridays, water play will be cancelled.
