End of the Year! (English)

Dear Khayay Families,
 
The end of the school year has finally arrived! On Friday May 29th, we will celebrate the Aozora students’ graduation from kindergarten to primary school, and the Kirara and Hoshi students’ moving-on to KG. We welcome all of you to join us for this wondrous occasion. 
 
Around this time of year, the teachers’ hearts ache and they tear up as they prepare to send their students off to the next stage. Since August, they have shared many treasured moments with each and every child, laughing and learning together, holding them when they are sad and guiding them throughout and throughout. Within this joyous yet bittersweet end-of-the-year feeling, we can see and feel how much our teachers have dedicated themselves wholeheartedly to their students.
 
We will send out more specific details about graduation in a separate sheet. Please refer to this for more information.
 
The Khayay Music Show marked a new stage of development for many. From this one moment, the confidence and ability of the students soared.  The Aozora students gained more self-esteem and motivation to challenge and do things. They can observe their entire environment while communicating comfortably and confidently with their peers and the school. The Kirara and Hoshi students have nurtured deeper friendships and understand relationships even more, never forgetting to always have fun in both their learning and playing. The Soyokaze and Sazanami students are able to reflect on their own opinions, imagination and situations, and can distinguish them from actual events going on in their environment. The Tsubomi and Tampopo children’s imagination have grown immensely and they are able to come up with wonderfully creative stories and fantasies. The Shizuku children embrace their environment, and openly and bravely try to interact with it. Lastly, the primary school students recognize their own greatness and the greatness of others; the importance of peace; hopes and dreams; and self-motivation. Their motivation and willingness to learn, and experience more, are growing because they know that learning different subjects at school supplements all of this.
 
The Khayay School is not just a language school. The Khayay School exists to nurture confidence, patience, high self-worth and social empathy within each child, with the understanding that co-existence and working together can create a happier society. Regardless of any differences, we foster the love and human dignity in each child with our socio-emotional and peace-incorporated education.
 
Through different languages, we learn and embrace each other’s culture and society and grow as deeply empathetic people—while building resilience in the face of challenges and differences that life may throw at us. We wish for our students to hold these values in their hearts and become leaders wherever they may go.
 
Some parents may think that their child needs to be only English-proficient; however, if we overlook the children’s ability to build empathetic relationships and resilience, they will face more difficulties in reaching their full potential of whom they aspire to be in their life. We want our students to believe in their own potential while keeping their young spiritedness.
 
In this year and the past years, Khayay parents who understand our philosophy have always supported and walked alongside us, and I look forward to the years to come with your support. From the bottom of my heart, I thank you. We will continue into the future with this philosophy in mind because we want to keep treasuring this world, our earth and the universe we live in.
 
Every year, we learn about ecology in summer school. This year, primary school students, including students who will be first graders in August, will have summer school until 2pm. Please have them bring a lunchbox to school everyday. To prepare for first grade, we will have fun math activities and basic Myanmar language learning in the afternoon.
 
Like every year, the teachers have workshops, lectures and learning sessions in the afternoon of summer school to plan next year’s curriculum and discuss how they can make each child’s education even better. I hope parents can recognize the passion that every teacher and staff member of The Khayay School have in creating the best learning environment for your child.
 
Thank you very much and see you at Graduation!
 
Sincerely,
Principal
