Dear Parents,


Welcome: Welcome back and Happy New Year 2022. I hope that you are all keeping safe and well. We are off to an exciting second term, in continuation of our journey of learning. With the cold weather season, please have your child dressed appropriately in their winter uniform everyday.


Health and Safety:

As we welcome students back into the classrooms from a well-deserved break, our highest priority continues to be the health and safety of our students, families, and staff. To this end, we will continue to enforce our health and safety measures in place to ensure students and staff are safe and that our schools can remain open.
