Congratulations are in order for Vaibhav Iyer, Year 12. Vaibhav will represent E.I.S. this summer in Cambridge, U.K. as a Global Scholar. We are proud that two of our students have been offered scholarships for summer study in the U.K. this year – Vaibhav Iyer in Cambridge and Cyrian Kedowide in Oxford. We will send them off with our best wishes and know that they will return in September with rich experiences behind and much to share.
As we are in our last month of the school year, I would like to call your attention to the following events and information:
Public Holiday: Monday, 10th June 2019
School will be closed on Whit (Pentecost) Monday.
Cambridge IGCSE and Advanced-level examinations will end on 14th June. Cambridge releases the results of these examinations in August. Year 6 and Year 9 students will be given their Statements of Achievement for Cambridge Checkpoint Tests in English, Mathematics and Science once the school receives them directly from Cambridge.
Reports Out and Child Progress Conferences – 20th and 21st June
Reports will be sent home with children on Thursday, 20th June and parents will meet with teachers on Friday, 21st June. Teachers will arrange appointment times during the week prior to the conferences.
Sports Day – date to be announced (taking the weather forecast into consideration)
Children in their houses of Einstein, Newton and Mandela, will compete in fun races and games. More information will be forthcoming from class teachers. We will request that children be sent to school on that day wearing the colours of their house.
Last Day of Term / Prize Giving – Friday, 28th June, Institut Français Paillote
The 28th of June is the official last day of school. We end on this day with a farewell ceremony (from 10:00 – 11:30), during which we reflect on the academic year and award prizes. I would like to ask parents to kindly inform teachers if, for certain reasons, they will need to travel before the final day.
The school calendar for Academic Year 2019 – 2020 is on the website and should be consulted when making travel plans. Please note that the next academic year will begin on Monday, 16th September 2019.
Reminder:Re-inscription is necessary if you wish to guarantee a place for your child and to help us plan well for the upcoming academic year.
Thank you for your cooperation.
