WELCOME TO TERM TWO!

Welcome back to school after what we hope was a wonderful and exciting holiday, spent with family. The second term is well underway with teachers and learners actively engaged in quality teaching and learning. Learners are advised to work hard and complete all tasks from the outset of the term and to follow a structured daily revision roster.

We urge all parents to continuously be involved in their children’s education. Today’s parents’ evening offers all of you an opportunity to meet with your child’s teacher to discuss his/her performance for the previous term, decide on intervention strategies and set performance targets for Term 2. We look forward to your continued support and co-operation.
