CHRISTMAS 2009
We have collated all our Christmas Concert Photographs. If you would like to enjoy these photographs, please bring your thumb drive to Arts Junior Montessori on Monday 11th January so that we may assist you in uploading these photo's.

AIKIDO
Arts Junior Montessori has bettered her Aikido program, in doing so we have made a shift in our timetables, Aikido lessons will now run from 11am-12pm on Mondays as of this coming Monday 11th January 2010.
To give a greater benefit to your child, Aikido classes will be split into two groups according to the children's ability.
The company we have engaged is known as AIKIDO SHINJU KAI, this Aikido school is direct from Japan.
AIKIDO SHINJU KAI aims to teach children to:
·Coordinate body movements
·Learn easy self-defense
·Practice falling safely
·Train children to have strong minds.

NEW TEACHERS
Ms. Noor - Ms. Noor has over ten years teaching experience in an International Pre-school and Primary school in Singapore.
With a child of her own, 8 year old girl, Ms. Noor has the experience of a mother and is confident in handling your child and nurturing them. Ms. Noor, is not only a wonderful teacher but her strength in Arts and Craft will excite your child and help them better enhance their creative and fine motor skills. Ms. Noor is also very qualified in teaching the Malay language, this is another quality she will be bringing to our school - The Malay language will now be available for all students who wish to learn.

If you would like your child to take Malay language class, please let us know and we would be more than happy to make arrangements for you.

Ms. Zhou Zehui - Ms. Zhou Zehui has over fifteen years teaching experience with Primary Schools in China, She has also attained experience in Pre-Schools in Singapore. Ms. Zhou Zehui joins us with not only the qualifications of a teacher but with the experience of a mother, she can therefore be confident in providing the love and care that your child requires as they grow every day.

PARENTAL ASSISTANCE
1)We have noticed that a few of the toys and materials in our school seem to be missing. We would appreciate your kind help to check if your child may have accidently brought any of our school items home. If so, could you kindly bring the items back to school as soon as possible?
2)Due to the growth in number of children in our Arts Junior Montessori, we would like to strongly encourage that children do not bring their own, toys/books/stickers/etc… to school.
