LATEST GOINGS ON AT THE SCHOOL...
I would like to remind those who have not already done so to send us the application/s for the next school year. You can download the application form from our webpage and send us the completed application forms by post, e-mail or you can leave them at reception.
Thank you for your help.
You have already received the tuition fee invoice this month, which was 80% of the regular tuition fee.
For the second part of May, the K1 to grade 3 students who returned to school yesterday will revert to paying the full tuition fee; the difference in the fee for March will cover the difference in the fee for May. In June, they will receive an invoice for the regular tuition fee.
Grade 8 students will receive a 10% reduction in fees for June, as they will return to school in the last week of May.
We will use the same system of payment for the Afternoon and Kindergarten programmes. Parents will also receive the invoice for these two programmes in June.
For the pupils who stay at home, there will not be a charge for the Kindregarten and Afternoon programmes, and the March difference of the fee will be returned at the end of the school year.
Any pupils who do not return to school will be charged 80% of the fee for the rest of the school year. The March difference, or the difference for the prepaid tuition fee, will be returned at the end of the school year.
Two months ago we closed our school and immediately proceeded with online learning. During this time I have not received any information regarding anybody becoming infected or ill in our school community. Some of our grades and teachers have returned to school today and I hope it stays that way.
Please be aware that in case of any of your family members becoming infected with coronavirus you must inform the school. We will do everything to keep our pupils and staff safe and healthy, and we count on your cooperation and responsible safe behaviour.
Thank you for your help and support!
I have missed the laughter, joy and vivacity of children and I look forward to seeing at least some of this again on Monday, after two months away. Of course our school life will not be the same as before, we will all have to follow the preventative measures as the danger of coronavirus is still present.
We will be airing our classrooms and facilities at all times, and if possible, the pupils will also spend a lot of time outside. It could be quite cold in the coming days so they should wear warm clothes (layers), which they can take off if it gets warmer.
The pupils should also bring their own bottles of water to use during lessons, so as to avoid some common points of possible infection.
They should bring all their materials (notebooks, folders, books) to school, where they will use and keep them until the end of the school year.
Upon arrival at school the pupils will store their shoes under a ledge in the corridor in front of their classrooms and bring their (extra) clothes to their area in the classroom. They will not use/share their lockers again this school year.
Please bring and pick up your child to/at the designated area punctually at the time their group meets/parts to avoid crowding.
