Open Day (for MYP5 – DP2)
In December, we will have the last Parent Open Day session in 2023-2024, which is mainly for M5-DP2 parents. High school learning and campus life is tighter compared with lower grades. We do hope this activity can give parents more opportunities to understand the learning for high school students so as to provide the most needed support as they can as parents.
