From the Headmaster
National Holiday for Fathers’ Day
Monday 17th of June is a National Holiday and the school will not be open. We have adjusted our events appropriately.
End of Year Reports
Children in Upper and Lower Primary will receive their end of year reports today.
There is growing evidence that children who read throughout their summer holidays are less like to slip behind and will have a much better start to the next academic year. All grade blogs include suggestions for suitable reading for primary children and the Jubilee Library will be open from 9am until 12 noon every Tuesday and Thursday in June and July so that you and your children can continue to borrow books. Please make the most of this opportunity.
No roller bags next year please
Children in Upper Primary should bring an ordinary, sensible sized backpack to school next year please. We will not be allowing children to have roller bags as it encourages them to carry too much around with them unnecessarily and we simply do not have space for bags of this size. Thank you for your cooperation.
