From the Headmaster
Our bulldog mascot has a name!
The stork “delivered” our new bulldog mascot on Founders’ Day - 23rd of October - and after a competition involving hundreds of entries we were able to select the most popular name for it. Since it is a young mascot, with some growing up to do, we need to teach it the ABC values. Our vision is to create Responsible Outstanding Citizens - ROCs as we say at the ABC. So it is appropriate that “Roc” is the name of the new bulldog mascot (it is already being called “Rocky” when face-to-face).
We are all very glad that the ABC Bulldogs have a mascot emblem to support our school activities! GO BULLDOGS!

We are in the middle of our team building trips with each Grade and we hope the students find them not only fun but also that the trip will help them discover new things about themselves and their classmates. Thank you for your support for these trips. Grade 9 are returning tomorrow morning and we have trips for Grade 8 and Grade 11 next week.
We have had fun celebrating British fortnight these past two weeks and hope your son or daughter have learned some things about Britain and especially some of the scientific heritage.
We are still having some students not wearing the correct PE uniform and we ask for your help in ensuring your son or daughter wears the correct socks and footwear.
