A class list will be available at the centre for the parents to send specific invitations.
If a parent wishes, the child’s birthday can be celebrated by having a class party. This needs to be organised under the supervision of the class teacher with assistance from the parents. The centre may organise some games and activities as part of the celebration. Any private celebration is not encouraged at the centre.
