Dear Parents and Guardians,

Back to School: We are delighted to have our pupils back on campus! Thank you to you as parents for all of your efforts to support your child’s education. Please be reminded that engagements with us are encouraged so where you have questions or concerns, or see opportunities that will bring benefit to the institution, please engage with us. 

A reminder that the Parents Assembly committee are also available to you and are an avenue through which you can raise concerns, queries or ideas for improvements. The Chairman, Mr Tombindo, can be reached on Please see the attached directory for details of the other members. 

Form 1, 2 & 3s Return to School: A reminder that boarders are to check back in to hostel between 10am and 3pm on Sunday 5 September. The Bursars will be available in the hall during this time for those who may need to still engage with them. Please note that they will not be able to assist those who come outside of those times. 

Lessons for juniors start at 7:30 on Monday 5 September. 

Day Scholar Programme – Monday 6 September: Day scholars are to be at school by 7:20am as per usual expectations. A reminder that students are to present their daily symptoms check list on arrival. This checklist is to be signed by you as the parents. Please assist in ensuring that this is done before arriving at school. Please note that on Monday 6 September day scholars should be collected at 3:30pm, not 5pm as previously indicated. 5pm collection time will come into effect from Tuesday 7 September. 

Co-Curricular Programmes: Following this week’s Cabinet announcement on the opening up of sports we will look to implement sports programmes associated with this term – namely swimming, basketball, tennis, volleyball and cricket, within the COVID-19 safety protocols which had been approved by the relevant governing bodies.  As such, we remind pupils to bring their own equipment for the sport that they will be involved in. All pupils will be involved in sport for the month of September, with the Form 4s, Lower 6s and Upper 6s stopping sport during their examination season. 

A reminder that swimming is a compulsory sport as we firmly believe all pupils must at least learn the important life saving skill of being able to swim to save their own life. Swimming is therefore a compulsory activity for all Form 1, 2 and 3 pupils. Please ensure your child has a school swimming costume. 

All Form 1, 2 and 3 pupils will be involved in the usual club programmes associated with this term. 

Lower 6 Consultation: Please note that you will receive a meeting invitation from the IT Department during the course of next week for your individual appointment date and time. These appointments will fall in the week of 13 – 17 September and are determined by our timetables. Your children will also be part of this time of consultation.

Some Important Reminders: 

All pupils to return to school with: 

  • All textbooks, notebooks and appropriate stationery. 
  • A minimum of two books to go towards the school library.
  • “Earn a Brick” raised funds and form.

Boarders please remember to pack:

  • Either 5 washable triple layer cloth masks, or 3 boxes of disposable masks
  • Small bottle of sanitiser
  • Clothes pegs
  • Padlock set – good quality with spare keys
  • Mosquito repellant (lotion or stick)
  • Labelled umbrella or rain coat
