Upon a smooth completion of the first week of a new school year, I would like to extend a warm welcome to our new school families and welcome back those who have been with us. We look forward to a fruitful academic year, and count on your support and cooperation.
We welcome the following new teachers to our staff:
Mrs. Nicole Kamenga – Middle School English and Special English Support
Mrs. Layale Chidiac – Year 9 Maths and Physics; Advanced Maths
As most of you already know, our school newsletter is an important vehicle of communication, informing all of what is going on in our school community and sometimes in the community at large. Please make it a priority to keep up with the latest information. In maintaining our commitment to the environment and our determination to reduce paper waste at school, we continue to post our newsletter on the school website and on each of our building boards. You may also call into the secretary’s office if you need a hard copy in hand. By subscribing through the website, the newsletter will go directly to your email address. If you have difficulty with your subscription, please see Mr. Khaled Soumanou, Administrative Secretary.
Please review the calendar for this school year, and note the following information:
After-School Activities will begin next week. A variety of physical, arts and enrichment activities are on offer this term. For further details, please visit our school website. Activity fees are paid directly to instructors at the start of the term.
Swimming classes began this week. If your child is to be exempt from swimming due to illness or other reasons, kindly put this intention in writing, addressed to the class teacher.
Orders are still being taken for school uniforms and will continue to be delivered to children. If any adjustments are necessary, the Secretary will be able to contact the tailor. We ask that parents make sure that their children are dressed properly and neatly before leaving for school.
Information Evening – Friday, 5th October, 18:00 – 19:30
Teachers will display curriculum materials and answer questions about classroom routines, expectations and goals. More information about this important event for new parents will be forthcoming.
Dropping Off and Collecting Children
We wish to suggest that cars dropping off children to the Middle School make their approach as if coming from the airport road (driver’s side to the school entrance). This should help traffic to flow more smoothly. Cars bringing Lower or Upper School children to school are to remain outside the barrier, as we share the road with residents. Young children can be escorted down the pavement to their building.
Thank you for your cooperation.
