Kids do better in school when parents get involved. Attending parent-teacher conferences is one way to be involved and help your child succeed. A parent-teacher conference is a great opportunity to discuss your child's progress, share your child's strengths and needs, work with the teacher to help your child do well in school. Thank you to all parents who came last 8th June 2019, Lavender Meadows Academy's Parent-Teacher Meeting.
We live in a world of distractions. More and more these days, kids seen unable to focus on anything for any decent length of time. Yoga can help with that. It teaches kids to be present, and to concentrate and focus on their breathing. They learn how the breath can help them throughout the day, in any situation. They learn to focus on the pose by learning correct body alignment, and in so doing, learn to focus on their bodies and how they function- guiding each limb or part of the body through the nuances of the pose. That's why Ms. Grace Hobbs, Liam's mother do a 30-minutes yoga session with the kids on the 7th of June 2019.
Our school celebrated Hari Raya Puasa on the 30th May 2019, where the children get to explore the Malay Culture.

Selamat Hari Raya to all!!
Eira’s mum came on 18 March 2019 to share about Saint Patrick’s Day, which is on 17 March, with the children as part of a parental involvement activity. The children had fun in trying out the costume.
Dion's grandmother and mother came to share a song and a phonic lesson with the children as part of a parental involvement activity. Parental involvement is important as much research exists about the importance of parent involvement in education. The research overwhelmingly indicates that parent involvement not only positively affects student achievement, it contributes to higher quality education and better performance of schools overall.

Deepavali, the Festival of Light on 24 October, LMA celebrated Deepavali. It was an eye-opener for LMA children on Indian's culture and practices. On that morning, the center was enveloped with Indian songs and decors to set the mood. We were so privilege to have our two Parent Volunteers, Ms Aiko (Chiharu's mother) and Ms Ranjeet (Sukhmani's mother) to help in the Heena Art Work and the program. The celebration started with a short introduction to this Festival of Light by teacher Carra. Thereafter, our beautiful and lovely Parent Volunteer, Ms Ranjeet, taught and led LMA children in a Tamil dance. Lavender Meadows' parents and guardians were also very generous with their contribution to this celebration. Many thanks to Ms Ranjeet, Ms Aiko and all parents / guardians who had contributed to make this event so wonderful for the children. Last but not least, LMA children got to bring back their little oil lamp art piece home.
A great teacher never try to be the best teacher, they simply try to bring out the best in their students. Happy Teacher's Day!
Children boarded the bus to Jurong Bird Park with great excitement to meet variety of bird species on 14 August, Thursday. They got more than what they were expecting. Watching the ‘Kings of the Skies’ show was a very noteworthy moment. Children had close face-to-face counter with vultures, condors, eagles, owls and kites; the birds of prey. They viewed how these birds skillfully snatched their food tossed in the air. These birds have keen eyesight for detecting food at a distance and during flight. ‘High Flyers’ show was also very amazing. Children observed in super close distance birds in their graceful flights and incredible skills. The talking and singing Macaw in English, Chinese and Malay language was remarkable. Children kept talking about Flamingo, then they saw them and more. The penguins, chicken, toucan, horn bill, parrots, pelicans and others. This experience would surely ignite their curiosity to know more about birds.
