The Venue for the sessions are as below, so request you to please be on time at the preferred subject session venue.

Session 1- 8:00- 8:50

  • Science at Hippodrome
  • Language and Literature at Pulse

Session 2- 9:10- 10:00

  • Math at Hippodrome
  • Integrated Humanities at Pulse

Note: Individual queries regarding MYP assessments will be catered after 10:00 am by respective coordinators.

IMP Note Regarding PHE Unit-2 starting August 10

IMP Note Regarding PHE Unit-2 starting August 10

Dear Students,

Please note you are required to bring your own personal badminton racket and spare shuttlecocks(plastic one)-1 for use in the next PHE unit starting on 10th August.

We will be commencing a unit on Rackets games and require your kind cooperation. Please take note of the following points.

1) The school and coaches are not responsible of your equipment.

2) In the event of you not having a racket already. Please kindly purchase according to your budget and need, we don’t need extravagant equipment, it should be just enough for you to grasp the concept.

 

Regards,

MYP PHE Teachers
