As we approach the end of the first term of the school year, we’d like to thank you for your support and extend our compliments of the season.
Please consider the following information and reminders for your diaries:
Collection basket for the needy
As we think of those who are not as fortunate as we are, we prepare items to donate to a local orphanage / alternative school. If you have good quality used clothes or toys, please gather them together to bring to school. Baskets will be placed in front of the administrative building and at the Middle School for collection starting next week.
Mock IGCSE and AS-level examinations will be held from 3rd - 6th December. Letters will be sent out to the parents of students involved.
In the spirit of the season, and in keeping with our tradition of giving presents at this time, each student in the Middle and Upper Schools is asked to bring a present to give to another student in their class. The class teachers will organise how the gifts will be distributed. An amount of 5,000 FCFA is suggested. Presents should be brought to school by Monday, 10th December.
In the Lower School and Pre-School, class teachers will inform parents directly of how present-giving will be handled. Kindly await further notice on this from your child’s class teacher.
Performance – Tuesday, 11th December 2018, 18:30 on the Upper School roof
In the spirit of the Christmas season, Lower, Middle and Upper School children will treat you to an evening of singing and theatre sketches.
Reports Out and Child Progress Conferences
Reports will go out on Thursday, 6th December. The date of the Child ProgressConferences will be Friday, 7th December. Lower and Middle School teachers will send out appointment letters closer to the date. Upper School teachers will meet with parents in turn on the evening from 16:00 – 18:00.
A flu / cold virus has been going around school. As always, we emphasize frequent and thorough hand washing in school. Do keep your child at home if he/she is ill.
Thank you for your cooperation.
