Manigong Bagong Taon – Happy New Year!
As communicated yesterday, we will be implementing a few changes to Lion’s Roar this term to ease up on the information sent out from school. Starting this week we will send out a short bulletin with key dates and information only. On the last Friday of every month we will send out a full newsletter similar to what we have done before.
The purpose of the change is to make key information easily accessible on a regular basis, without missing out on valuable and interesting curricular information and of course keeping the communications flowing. Our regular communication channels will remain as key communicators.
We will conduct a full review of our Marketing and Communications by a specialist consultancy in mid-February and look forward to tweaking our practices and protocols in order to improve our community experiences.
Please see the dates below for when we will send a bulletin and a full newsletter for the coming term.
