Possible traffic delays on Monday - arrive early!
The last day for the Class of 2013 is on Monday. The traditional “entry” on the last day will take place at around 7am and drivers are asked to arrive early to avoid being caught up in the congestion.
Students in the Secondary School should have already registered their laptops with the school so that they can be covered by our special laptop insurance. It is a “breaking-in” (hurto) policy which means that the insurance company must judge that the laptop was stolen by forcing open a secure area.
All students must use suitably strong padlocks on their lockers and maintain the security of their keys or combinations. Remember: if it is not registered and locked away, it is not covered.
