Alexandra: Half term is here and many UK boarders have returned to Hong Kong for two weeks back home. It is wonderful to have the whole family under one roof again. The students have their stories of their first few weeks of term to tell, school work, friends, new routines, sports, music, drama.... their whole new world. Some will have grown, may have a new hair style or picked up a different way of speaking. I've heard mothers remark "She sounds so British now!"

Happy Monday!

“There was only orange juice in the fridge. Nothing else you could put on cereal, unless you think ketchup or mayonnaise or pickle juice would be nice on your Toastios, which I do not, and neither did my little sister, although she has eaten some pretty weird things in her day, like mushrooms in chocolate.”
– Fortunately, the Milk, Neil Gaiman

This book highlights the highs and lows of growing up, complex family relationships, and the importance of empathy and acceptance, especially in the face of difference or difficulty. It includes strong female characters and, through the voice of the young, lovable protagonist, serious, thought-provoking themes, allowing…

Helen:

"Hong Kong is still recovering from the huge typhoon, Mangkhut, that hit on Sunday. The clean-up operation from this storm will take some time and I am sure many of you have seen lots of fallen down trees and broken windows on the streets this week.

It is so important for everyone to come together and help at times like this, there are many great books and websites to show children to encourage them to help others.

Alix's choice:

As the ingenious siblings repeatedly thwart the fortune-stealing schemes of wicked Count Olaf, Snicket explicitly introduces the reader to a range of vocabulary, whilst telling the tales with wit and intelligence. This is a fantastic series that champions…

Alexandra: Hong Kong is preparing for a super typhoon this weekend. Many of us will be spending the day at home with our family. It could be an opportunity to play some classic family board games - Monopoly, Cluedo, Trivial Pursuit or Articulate. My family like big games of cards, we play racing demons with as many people as we have packs of cards. There's also Bananagrams and Boggle where you make words from different letters. Games are a great way to learn and these…
