Week 31: 16-20 April

Greetings 5A Community,

Next week is the long awaited PYPX! The following is the schedule for the two day event.

Tuesday 24th of April Schedule
Students arrive at school at the standard time. They will finish setting up for the presentations (which they started the day prior) and attend any specialty classes up until 12:30 pm. This is when the first visiting schools begin to arrive. G5 students are presenting the PYPX process and then station themselves at their exhibits until 3:20 pm. There will be a short 15-minute break between 1:45 and 2:10. Students will travel home as per normal travel arrangements.

Wednesday is a public holiday, so no school

Thursday 26th of April Schedule
Students arrive at school at the standard time and attend the normal school assembly. At 9:10 am students greet the first round of guests. Students continue with their exhibits until 2:55 pm. Normal lunch and break times are observed over the course of the day.

Thursday 26th of April – Parent and Guest Evening Schedule
Students are required to be at school by 5:30 pm to tend to their exhibits and prep for the parent presentation which starts at 6:00 pm. The presentation will take approximately 20 mins. Students will then return to their exhibits and explain their PYPX journey and learning, to parents and a variety of other guests.

At  7:15 pm students will return to the theatre to sing their closing song and listen to the closing statements from their PYP coordinator, Ms Angela Meikle. The event should be finished by 7:30 pm

I look forward to seeing everyone on Thursday night!
Nathan
