Dear Parents

It is hard to believe we are fast approaching July. Thank you for ensuring your children arrive on time as continual lateness is very disruptive to the learning opportunities of the other students.

Last week two cases of Covid-19 reminded us how easy it could all start again. We continue to take sensible precautions and are pleased we decided on a slow reintroduction to inter-school sport and large gatherings. There is a tracking app located at all the gates for you to keep a track of your movements.

Shade Sail Progress
The fences are gone so we can now use this area. We hope to have the astro-turf in approximately

4-6 weeks depending how quickly the Ministry approve the project.
