We look forward to seeing you this evening at our Annual Social Evening / Barbecue for Parents and Teachers, from 19:00 – 21:00 on the School Field.
Teachers have been working hard to get the 2013- 2014 Academic Year off to a productive start. We once again welcome new families who have joined us. Teachers look forward to meeting you at the following upcoming event:
New Parents’ Conferences and Information Evening – Thursday, 3rd October, 16:00 – 18:00 in the various school buildings.
Prior to the date, new parents will receive invitations to select appointment times for this day. The evening is scheduled for discussion of your child’s early progress with teachers. Teachers will also display curriculum materials and answer questions about classroom routines, expectations and goals. If teachers find it necessary to discuss academic or behavioural issues of students who have returned to school, they will send out letters to schedule meetings with those parents on this evening.
We appreciate your consideration of teachers’ busy work schedules and the necessity for them to remain attentive to pupils’ needs during school hours. You may seek assistance from the school secretary to make appointments with them if queries should arise outside of scheduled conference times. We thank you for your cooperation in making sure that the telephone numbers which you have given to school are working numbers, should we need to contact you in the event of an emergency.
World Peace Day (21st September)
As many of you know, we celebrated World Peace Day at school on Friday, 20th September. Under beautiful skies, our march over to the school field was symbolic. Sitting down on the grass, in the formation of the peace symbol, we observed a minute of silence. Some of the poems that the children wrote on that day are now on display in the school hall. Our reflections and prayers go out to those who are suffering because of lack of peace for various reasons.
