Help setting up Parental Controls 
Due to the very positive response from our Web Influence School for Parents, and in recognition that Santa will have provided lots of new electronic devices, we are now offering the following facility. Fernando Montes, our Systems Manager, and his team will be available between 1:30pm and 2:30pm to assist you with setting up parental controls on your devices. Please do take advantage of this if you need to and help keep your children safe online.

Sports Days
Our youngest children took part in their sports events this week, thank you to the PE team for their organisation and to all the parents who showed up to support their children and their tribe! Next week Grades 1 to 5 will be having their Sports Days, please check the calendars below for dates.

Internet Controls
We would like to reinforce the advice coming from the Primary School about the importance of setting up filters and checks in your home to ensure your children are not exposed to pornography or inappropriate sites. We also ask that you check the sites they visit on mobile devices such as phones if these have roamers.

Congratulations to the Class 2015 for an excellent Circus last night.

Grade 9 and Grade 11 Parent Teacher Meetings are on Tuesday evening.
The Grade 11 meeting will start in the ABCLT and the Grade 9 in the PAC at 5.30 pm. These will be followed by individual Parent Teacher meetings.

Grade 10 and Grade 12 Mock Exams are starting on Monday
Students are aware of their individual timetables and only need to come to school for their exams. They must arrive at least fifteen minutes before an exam in full school uniform (NOT their PE kit). If they have only one exam they may go home straight after that exam but if they have more than one exam they may not go home between exams but must stay at school until the end of their final exam that day. Students will be able to revise in classrooms as well as make use of the LRC.
