Thank you for your presence on International Day. Your contributions of delicious food were greatly appreciated. The children presented a fine programme of singing, dancing and fashion. We are proud of our children and of the spirit of global unity that they project.
Those who came out to the Lower School Garden on the evening of 13th June were delighted with an outstanding performance of our Upper School students in their production of Oscar Wilde’s, The Importance of Being Earnest. We congratulate the cast and crew on their hard work and success.
Sports Day, held on Friday, 20th June, was a success. The children, in their houses of Einstein, Newton and Mandela, enjoyed competing in fun races and games and the weather was perfect for the picnic that followed. We thank many of you for your presence and participation on that day.
As the school year draws to a close, I’d like to call your attention to the following information and reminders:
Reports Out and Child Progress Conferences – 25th and 26th June
Reports will be sent home with children on Wednesday, 25th June and parents will meet with teachers on Thursday, 26th June. Lower school teachers have sent out appointment slips. Middle and Upper School teachers will meet with parents in turn throughout the school day (8:00 – 15:00).
Last Day of Term / Prize Giving – Friday, 27th June, Institut Français Paillote
The 27th of June is the official last day of school. We end on this day with a farewell ceremony (from 9:00 –10:30), during which we reflect on the academic year and award prizes. I would like to ask parents to inform teachers if, for certain reasons, they will need to travel before the final day. We ask parents to kindly take their children (dressed in school uniform) directly to the Institut Français by 8:45.School will end immediately following the ceremony, so please make sure that unaccompanied children are collected promptly from the Institut Français. We look forward to seeing you there.
The school calendar for Academic Year 2014 – 2015 is out and should be consulted when making travel plans. Please note that the next academic year will begin on Wednesday, 17th September 2014.
Reminder:Please turn in your re-inscription form as soon as possible if you wish to guarantee a place for your child in the upcoming school year.
I would like to wish you, in advance, a pleasant, safe and restful holiday, and thank you for your cooperation and support throughout the school year.
