Dear Parents,
 
Last night we hosted our e-Open Evening with Ampleforth College U.K. offering parents an insight into secondary school provision at one of the leading boarding schools in England. As many of our parents, not only those of Year 6 students, are currently navigating the applications and interviews for the next phase of their child’s learning journey, we hope that those of you who attended found it useful and informative. Our staff are here to support you through this next phase, so please get in touch with us if you have any questions about secondary provision.
 
This Saturday, we will be hosting our own online briefing session for members of the public who are looking to start at Anfield School in August 2022. It is always a pleasure to share what we do with prospective parents, as we are so proud of the learning that takes place and the emphasis on student wellbeing at the heart of all that we do.
 
Finally, don’t forget that our Friends of Anfield AGM will take place online this coming Tuesday, 21st Sept at 8.45am. A great opportunity to get involved and to support the school and our students.

Dear Parents,
 
We have enjoyed another great week of learning here at Anfield. The staff were delighted to be able to share their curriculum plans for the year ahead with so many of you at our Curriculum Evening on Tuesday. For any parents who were unable to join, the presentations have been uploaded to Google Classroom, please take a look and contact your child’s class teacher if you have any questions about what was discussed.
 
This coming week we will once again be welcoming staff and students from Ampleforth College in the U.K to share their experiences with us online at their e-Open Evening. All details about how you can register and join this event (Thu 16th Sept @ 7pm) are on the next page of the newsletter. We are in a unique position at Anfield to be able to have a link with such a prestigious boarding school in the U.K. I’m sure many of you are interested in finding out more about the curriculum, facilities and practicalities of boarding school life as an option for your child once they leave Anfield School.

Dear Parents,
 
It is wonderful to have all of our children back in school for the start of the Autumn Term. We look forward to a continued positive outlook and ongoing stability, following a couple of years of uncertainty with online and face-to-face schooling. Our new students have settled quickly and are getting used to their new environment and classmates. It is a big change when you come to a new school and we realise that it takes time for everyone to feel comfortable in their new space.
 
We are excited to welcome the staff and students from our new St. Bosco Koon Ying School to join the Anfield family. They are working here with us at Tai Wai on a temporary basis until their brand-new school site is completed and we are enjoying sharing our learning space with them.
We have been busy working on some changes over the summer holidays and were so pleased to be able to open our new STEAM Lab this week (see pics later in the newsletter), which replaces our previous Computing Suite. The staff have worked together to develop this in order to ensure we continue to offer the highest quality learning opportunities which will prepare our students for their future careers.
 
We look forward to sharing learning with you again this year and hope to see as many of you as possible online to meet with the staff at our Curriculum Evening this Tuesday 7th Sept. Teachers will post the Google Classroom link at 5pm.
