Weekly newsletters are circulated each Thursday. These contain important information for parents. From time to time, they have reply slips which parents are asked to complete, sign and return.
Extra-mural timetables are usually circulated together with the last newsletter each term. Parents are encouraged to find a place where they are pinned up for easy, regular reference.
Homework Books/School Diaries:
The homework book/diary is sent home each day for the parents to check and sign. Parents are also encouraged to use the homework book or diary as a means to communicate with the class teacher.
Parents are afforded regular opportunities to meet with the teachers at Parent-Teacher Meetings. Should parents wish to meet with either the Principal or any of the teachers; they are required to make an appointment through the homework book or by contacting the school Secretary.
In the event of any absence from school, immediately upon the return to school, a letter explaining the absence as well as duration is to be presented to the class teacher. Please note that absences of longer than 2 days require a doctor’s certificate.
Family holidays / trips must be restricted to the official school holidays only. Educators are unable to provide work to learners in advance who leave before the end of term. The nature of our school programme is based on learning experiences, which cannot simply be “caught up”. Children thrive in a climate of routine, both at home and school. Any absence is disruptive and unsettling for a child.
