Primary News

Easter Holiday
School closes at the normal time on Friday 22nd March for the Easter holiday and reopens at 7am on Monday 8th April. We hope that you and your family have a restful holiday. Please help and encourage your children to continue speaking and reading in both Spanish and English whilst they are on holiday.

Parent/Teacher meetings
In a questionnaire sent out to parents last year some people felt that there were not enough opportunities for parents to meet with teachers to discuss their children's progress. In response to this we are now organising parent/teacher meetings each term. You will be invited to make appointments for these meetings shortly after the holiday.

Registration at school takes place at 7am for all pupils. If children are not in their classrooms ready to begin the school day at this time they will be marked as late and this will be reflected in their reports. We have been lenient in LP, especially with our youngest pupils, but now that everyone is well settled into school and the daily routines, please ensure that your child arrives at school with plenty of time to get to their classrooms in time for 7.00am registration, this is a very important part of the day for all pupils.

Secondary News

On behalf of all the Secondary Section I would like to wish you all a very happy Spring Break or Easter Holiday. School reopens in two weeks time on monday 8th April. In the meantime we are expecting our older students to be working very hard over the coming holidays as Grade 9 and 11 Exams start the first week we are back and the IB Exams start three weeks after we get back with IGCSE starting soon after. This vacation is an ideal time to rest, recuperate and see family but also to study and prepare for important exams.

We are all looking forward to next term with intertribal volleyball and handball coming up as well as Careers Day and all of the events surrounding the graduation of the Class of 2013. We are also planning some musical performances towards the end of term to encourage our singers and young actors!

We look forward to seeing you all on Monday 8th April. However I would like to add one word. We are very concerned to maintain high standards with respect to school uniform and in particular we expect our girls to wear skirts of the required length and to wear proper ankle socks. We will be enforcing these issues more forcefully next term and I know we have your support so please play your part in ensuring students come to school appropriately dressed.
