LOWER PRIMARY BOOK FAIR IS NOW MARCH 6 & 7! - rescheduled due to School Closure

Treasure a Good Book at the Lower Primary PFO Book Fair!

Blimey! Our Book Fair has been postponed! School Closures can't stop our Book Fair but they did postpone it. Not to worry, we have plenty of books to help kick off the Year of the Dog at the Lower Primary Book Fair, now scheduled for Tuesday, March 6 & Wednesday, March 7. Aye Aye Want Books!

Everyone is welcome to browse and purchase a wide variety of NEW books at the Lower Primary PFO Book Fair! The Lower Primary Book Fair will be held on Tuesday, March 6 & Wednesday, March 7, 2018, in the Lower Primary Chapel in Repulse Bay from 8 a.m. - 3 p.m. Each class will have a scheduled visit to the Book Fair during these dates.

A suggested amount of $250 will enable your child to select a book or two. If you didn't make the deadline, please send in your child's labeled envelope after CNY unless you will join your child for shopping. The Book Fair is a great opportunity for them to practice their math and budgeting skills! 

Parents are welcome to come browse and shop anytime! Parent volunteers are needed during the book fair. Your child’s teacher will be sending out the class schedule. Please refer to this when you go online to sign up if you would like to volunteer during your child’s scheduled time.

Many thanks to our Parent Volunteers staffing at the Book Fair! Slots are newly available for the rescheduled Book Fair Dates - please sign up to volunteer here.

Got Candy?

Anyone traveling to the US in the next few months? On the day of the World's Fair in our Games area, we go through A LOT of candy (and US Candy is an HKIS favorite). If you can make a run to your favorite big box store and bring back bags of individually wrapped treats (please no nuts, chocolate or lollipops) we will happily reimburse you for the sweets. Your kids and their friends will thank you for their skittle/smarties/etc. sugar rush on April 14. For detailed guidance, please reach out to pfo.worldsfair@hkis.edu.hk.
