Tech Crew by Mr. Dipak Mondal On Saturday 29 October, our BPS Tech Crew had a fantastic opportunity working with students from Tatung University and Kevin Cheng (Associate Professor, Graduate Institute of Design Science, Department of Computer Science and Engineering) in a Maker Day event, funded by the Ministry of Education.

The children were given a problem and a design case to create something interactive and fun. Through problem solving, collaboration, creative and critical thinking the children were able to make imaginary creatures come alive.

As you can see from the photos the Tech Crew had a fabulous morning!

H1 and Year 4 Students Collaborate over Halloween Hats by Ms. Siobhan Baker On Friday 28th October all the H1 students from ESC travelled down to EPC bearing a special cargo. The H1 students had been working hard during their Maths lessons using complicated formulae to create individual, accurate and creative hats with a Halloween theme for the younger students. In return, after measuring their heads and specifying a hat height, the Year 4 students then measured-out and mixed accurately,

B

ingredients to make cookies in return for their hats. Both cookies and hats were truly fantastic! With great excitement and anticipation the students met up and traded their gifts. We then held a Halloween Family Fortunes game, and we still aren't sure who the winner was! Some of the more confident students led a cat-walk parade, showing off their hats and

posing scarily. It was fantastic to have a unique event that involved students from Secondary. Thanks to H1 students for all their hard work.

Cafeteria Lunch – Home made lunch delivery by Mr. Kerry Nockolds At the start of each year there are a number of new parents trying to get to grips with the new school procedures and rules, and this is true of the procedures for the cafeteria and student lunching also. So this is just a reminder/helpful guide to the cafeteria lunch process if your child is bringing their own home-made home lunch to school.

 Lunches must be delivered to the cafeteria at the start of the school day, before 8:00am.  If your child’s lunch is to be heated at lunchtime, please do the following: o Use a stainless steel lunchbox (with your child’s name and class code clearly marked). ma  Please don’t use other materials for lunch boxes as they can melt when put in the steamer. (we will only put stainless steel lunchboxes into the steamer) o Put the lunchbox into the refrigerator before 8:00am. o The lunch will be put into the steamer machine machine by the cafeteria staff ready for your child’s lunch sitting.  If your child’s lunch does not require heating, they may keep it in their school bag until their lunch sitting or it can be placed on the lunchbox rack at the back of the cafeteria and picked picked up at lunchtime. (Please ensure the lunchbox is clearly named, and put into the correct section’s rack) Please note: Due to safety concerns, during cafeteria lunch period, the cafeteria is out of bounds to all,, except on duty staff and students. It is not permissible to deliver lunch to the cafeteria/school except before 8:00am, as outlined above. Thank you for your cooperation, and if you have any questions related to this or ordering the school lunches please contact M Ms Gloria Chen, Cafeteria Supervisor, ext. 1810.
