Primary News

Prepa Family Days
Next week it is the turn of our Prepa parents to join their children in school for their special family days. Unfortunately we are unable to allow siblings in school to attend these family days as they go on for several weeks and this would create a major disruption to the children’s learning. However, we do hope that parents enjoy the opportunity to have some special time with each child. 

Digital video awards
The Digital Video Awards take place in the PAc next Tuesday evening (27th May) and primary as well as secondary children have taken this opportunity to show off their technical skills. We do hope that you will come along to support the children.

Latin Music and Arts Festival
Our annual Latin Music and Arts Festival also takes place next week, on Wednesday 28th May, and our choir and musicians have been working hard to prepare for this occasion. There will also be the opportunity to view some of the work that our primary pupils have been working on in Art and ICT lessons. Again, we look forward to seeing as many of you as possible coming to support our children and specialist teachers. A letter will be coming home shortly and tickets are available from the primary office.

Transition meeting for Grade 1 parents
At 9.30am on Saturday 31st May we will be having a meeting specifically for parents whose children will be moving from Grade to Grade 2 next school year. Teachers from Grade 2 will talk to parents about what they should expect when their children start in Grade 2 and reassure them that their children will continue happily through the next academic year. It will also be an opportunity for parents to ask any questions they may have. 

Primary classes
Unless there are exceptional circumstances the primary school has a policy of not mixing classes on an annual basis as used to happen. It is felt that keeping the children in the same class with the same friends and tribe is better both for their education and for their social development. On Moving Up day, Friday 6th June, the children will move up to their new class as a cohort and will have the opportunity to spend a few hours with their new teacher ( wherever possible).
