From Mr. Brian Irving, Head of Secondary

 a-Brian_0002This week the students were as shocked as I was to hear that already we had passed the 12% mark of the year! It seems like only yesterday that we returned from the long summer holiday ready to begin another academic year. Tempus fugit.

Our current focus is on absence and lateness- both factors which can seriously damage the progress made and ultimate level of achievement made by our young people, so I urge all parents to help us help your children by getting them to school on time, every day. I shall be sending every family a letter outlining our new procedures and sanctions, in Secondary, for our persistent offenders.

Thursday was our annual Wai Kru ceremony a very humbling event and one of the highlights of the academic year.

Friday this week is a long weekend. Students are back in school on Monday 28th September.
Have a learning filled week.
Brian

From Mrs. Rachel Perkins, Head of Primary

a-Rachel_0002Dear Parent, as we come to the end of yet another busy week in Early Years and Primary we celebrated our teachers and teaching assistants in our annual Wai Kru ceremony.


It was a very humbling experience to receive such lovely flowers and good wishes from the children. Many of the staff particularly from the UK have never experienced this ceremony and they all told me what a wonderful event it was and how pleased they are to teach in such a wonderful and thoughtful school environment.


Please let me take this opportunity to wish you a lovely long weekend with your family.

with best wishes
Rachel
