The series of WASS important events in September ended with the field trip for our kindergarten students. Among the various events was the International Day of Peace 2016 organised by the WASS Student Council. The event included a very impressive induction ceremony for nine outstanding student councilors. For our primary students, their full moon festival was an exciting occasion and was held in the school Conference Hall. Now let’s read on below for articles about other memorable moments from last month.
