After school arrangements for your children

Please let class teachers know via the HCB or email if your child is going home with someone other than yourself at the end of the school day.

UP Reading workshops for parents
Next week teachers in Upper Primary will be leading workshops for parents to help them to help their children at home. Reading is such an important part of our curriculum and something that we place great emphasis on in school, whatever age the children. Please come along to the appropriate workshop to discover how to help your child to develop a love of books and of reading. Please see below for dates.

First Grade Reading and Maths workshops for parents
On Thursday 13th February our 1st Grade teaching team will be leading a workshop for their parents which will give them knowledge, ideas and advice about how to help and support their children with these core areas of the curriculum when they are not in school.

Internet Safety
The internet offers boundless possibilities for learning, developing your problem solving skills and for entertainment. We make use of it constantly in school as part of our programme but we have strict controls in school to protect our children and we teach them about the dangers of the internet. Next week we will again refocus on this issue and we ask that you join us. Please talk to your children about their privacy settings on social networks, please try to protect them from accessing age inappropriate or offensive material on line. 

In our assembly with Grade 6 to 8 we stressed the importance of leadership in school. All students play leadership roles in their lives at school and they are all responsible for helping each other make smart choices. In school we are going to use our leadership values to help improve our recycling effort and we hope you will also talk to your son or daughter about their leadership responsibilities. Many of our older students have been on a Leadership Conference today and will be again tomorrow with ESEN

Grade 9 and 11 Exams start next week
Students all have access to their timetables and they must make sure they are in school at least 15 minutes before their first exam of the day. They may leave school after their last exam of the day but may not leave school between any exams on the same day. Students are always welcome to study at school during any period they do not have exams. Please help your son or daughter by encouraging sensible revision at home and making sure they have a good night sleep and breakfast before coming to an exam.
