Primary News

We are very proud of Alessandra Cassanovas who has taken our school traits and values to heart. Alessandra had her hair cut short and donated her hair in order to help patients who are receiving treatment for cancer. She looks as beautiful as ever! Alessandra was awarded Rocky in assembly in recognition of her consideration for others. Here is a note from her Mum:

Last week Alessandra donated, for the second time, her hair for patients under cancer treatment. She was 5 years old when she first decided to donate her hair; she proved to her proud parents patience and compassion and kept her promise for a year. When her hair was long enough to meet the required length to make a wig, she got a gorgeous haircut.

This year, after losing her grandfather to Cancer, this donation has a greater meaning. Now her short hair is a wonderful reminder that a selfless act can have a great impact. Please take a minute and share this act of love with others.

Donations can be made through:

Ayudame a Vivir
Eduardo Matheu (90 Grados)
Fundación Edificando Vidas

Swimming Galas
Our Pre Kinder swimming lessons this week were attended by the children’s parents who enjoyed the opportunity to see how their children learn water confidence and swimming during their lessons in school. Swimming Galas for all other grades in primary take place over the next few weeks, please check the dates below.

Next week we look forward to welcoming parents who have children in 3rd Padilla, 5th Brenes and PK Carbajal to their class assemblies. Again please check dates below. Please remember that when attending assemblies and other functions during the school day parents must use the emergency car park.
