PTA News

Yesterday, the PTA Committee said a heartfelt thank you and farewell to our principal Chris. We wish him good luck for his next chapter. We are extremely grateful that Chris has always made the PTA an integral part of the CWBS community. We are also very grateful to parents and students for acting fast and creating so many illustrations, well wishes, and delicious recipes that were bound into a book by our resources manager Bonnie. Hollie Arnulphy, the chair of the PTA Committee presented both the student book, and an iconic Hong Kong photo by Laurence Lai to Chris last night at a celebration hosted by the PTA. In the words of Cyrus Fu from Year 6 in his dedication to Chris, ‘As one chapter ends, another begins, so grasp the exhilaration that comes in embracing the joy in life.We will miss you dearly but and hope that you can relish a whole new kind of life ahead, full of experiences just waiting to happen’.


We would like to thank all parents and students for their contributions so far for teacher gifts. It is important we work together to uphold this tradition of thanks. If you would like to contribute to the gift for your child’s teacher and EA, please get in touch with your class contact, or we can identify that person for you.

We are really disappointed that the PTA cannot organise and run the usual events for the year six students who will graduate soon.The PTA has worked with the principal to adapt to the current situation, and the PTA will serve a freshly baked pizza lunch and refreshments on June 24th for the celebrations, and the graduate t-shirts have been delivered to the school today. Our in house technical wizard Mr Blundell is producing photography for the graduates too.

The PTA will be open on Mondays and Thursdays until the end of term. We can greet you at the office by appointment only Monday or Thursday between 8.45am and 3pm. You will need to book an appointment by emailing us on cwbspta@cwbs.edu.hk

Due to the extended school closure and social distancing rules, all PTA events for the rest of the term will be cancelled.


School uniform

We have a lot of second hand uniforms that we are selling at HK$20 a piece. The school is happy for students to wear the ‘old’ school uniform, so there is plenty of affordable kit to choose from.

Aston Wilson our old uniform supplier in Mong Kok still has some items available, please contact them directly Tel 2523 2517.

“Try on” samples for the new uniform have arrived, please make an appointment to come in on a Monday or Thursday, by emailing us on cwbspta@cwbs.edu.hk.


Hot Lunches

No hot lunches will be served for the remainder of the term. Please continue sending your children in with a healthy snack and lunch from home. We will resume lunch provision for the students as soon as we can.

Zebratasty are happy to offer a full refund for February’s meals,  parents can e-mail schoolmeal@zebratasty.com   if they do not hear from parents, they will use the unused funds for August 2020 meals.



The school buses are run independently, therefore we have no control over fees and refunds, we have asked the bus companies to communicate directly with parents with regards to these matters.If you find that you are having difficulties with any bus provider, contact us by email or phone, and we will do our best to help and find a solution.


Lost property

The PTA sells laundry marker pens and these are by far the easiest was to label clothing.  If you want to buy labels, there are a number of companies operating in Hong Kong and locally, there is a company called Very Very Sticky, selling all types of labels – https://veryverysticky.com/.
