Workshops and Information

 Dear Parents,

We hope you and your child had a fun and engaging week of school, our first full week was very successful as our students and teachers begin their year-long journey together as a classroom community. Just a couple of bits of important information for the upcoming week.

Learning Package Pickups:

Packages will be available for all Primary School parents as a drive-through service, in the main (secondary school) parking lot. Please drive up to the staff and open your window, hand them your paper with your child’s name and return any reading materials at the same time. Thank you

Further details

  • Pick-up is organized for Friday 27th of August, this coming Friday.
  • Pick up will be between the hours of 8:00 am and 4:00 pm
  • Returns: Please return any reading materials to school at this time i.e. Library books, reading resources such as class novels ORT and others. Please place in a bag with your child’s name on it (nickname and grade) so we can catalogue their return and put them back into the system.
  • Please keep your child’s whiteboard and stationary
  • Please prepare a scrap of paper  with your child nickname and grade and hand it to the staff so they can give you the correct package (it is sometimes difficult to hear because of  windows, masks, and running engines)
  • Please drive off when you have the new package

Assessment (Grade School 1-5)

We have begun our baseline assessments for reading, math, spelling, and writing.

You can help by providing a learning space that is quiet and has few distractions, encouragement, and support will help too. However, we ask that you do not assist your child in these assessments, it’s fine to get things wrong, this is how we learn and how we know exactly where your child is as a learner. This is how we plan appropriate lessons and learning for your child.

Here is a copy of the letter sent to you from Ms. Tania, our PYP Coordinator.

Welcome back to the New School Year

Dear Parents,

Wishing you all a warm welcome to the new school year, although we have not started the year as anticipated, everyone is eager and motivated to get started. Our first few days have been filled with excitement as the students get to know their new teachers and are introduced to new friends. Please find the revised parent handbook regarding guidelines for online learning.  This will help you to navigate and understand the programme a little more.

Dear Parents,

Here is wishing you all a very happy New Year and we hope you had a fun-filled and restful holiday. Thank you for your continued support and partnership as we enter into the new year.

The year 2021 has not started as we had hoped, but we look forward to seeing you all and your children through the lovely lens of Zoom or Google Meets for the next couple of weeks. Currently, we are mandated to be closed until January 31st, so have worked to ensure we can provide our learners with the be remote learning opportunities we can. The teachers have provided tuning in activities and zoom meetings over the past few days and have prepared packages to support the online learning activities, to create a balance and hopefully, an enjoyable programme for everyone. The following handbook will provide you with some information regarding the structure and expectations of the programme and the teachers will be sending home emails and updating their blogs this afternoon in preparation for the more structured programme that starts on Monday.
