We hope your child has had a wonderful first week back to school on campus. We were delighted to welcome them back, and know that learning alongside their peers at school is best, not just for their academic development, but also their social and emotional development and wellbeing.
We need your help to ensure that school remains safe for all students and staff. Please avoid allowing your child to participate in large gatherings outside of school in evenings/weekends. Please make sure that whenever your child is out in public places that he/she is taking necessary precautions (social distancing, face protection, sanitization) so as to minimize risk. Covid-19 is still very active in our wider community and we will continue to monitor positive cases that may occur within our community and will need to return some classes and students to online learning where positive cases appear.
If your child is at all unwell, or a member of your household is unwell, please leave your child at home until you are able to confirm that any illness is not Covid-related. If you suspect Covid, please alert our school doctor, Dr. Sally Gouda (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Parking and Pick-up and Drop-off
We are also very concerned by some of the parking and picking up of students at the end of the school day. We are asking parents and drivers to please not stop on the main road and expect their children to cross the road. We are very concerned that a serious accident could happen and are working to ensure that the recent traffic congestion in the mornings and afternoons is rectified.
Ministry of Education mid-year examinations
Parents of students in Grades 4-11 / Years 5-12 should be aware that we have received updated information regarding Ministry Arabic Studies Exams. We will soon send you further details regarding internal examinations in these grade/year groups when we have clarity on the full details.
Please have a wonderful, and safe, weekend.
Ms Allison Fleet and Mr Matt Topliss
