Newsflash 30/1/19

Father – Son Camp: Is scheduled for 8-10 February. The deadline for confirmations and payment has passed but very few dads have paid and with the number we have, camp will not quite be viable. We need confirmation of attendance by tomorrow, 31 January. If you are not able to pay immediately you can make a commitment to pay later. This should be done in writing and emailed to and copied to Cost USD130 for one father & one son. Contact Mrs Musa for further details or clarifications – 0772 350 327. Thank you. 

Parent Database Updates: If you have had any changes to your address, phone numbers, email addresses, medical aid details etc – please be sure to update us. 

Exeat Weekend Arrangements: This year, Exeat weekend is inclusive of Youth Day so will start at 1pm on Wednesday 20 February. Note that the Parents Assembly AGM is scheduled to take place at 11am on this day. All parents are encouraged to attend this meeting. Official notice will be sent in due course. Lessons resume on Tuesday 26 February. All boarders are expected to go home for this weekend. Some pupils may be involved in national tennis, swimming and cricket trials over that weekend. Once selections at provincial level is done, further communications will be sent out pertaining to this. 

Exeat Weekend Bus: Should be available for those who are unable to travel for the Parents Assembly AGM – specifically for the Harare route. Costs will be confirmed in due course. 

Those wishing to register interest for a Bulawayo – Hwange – Victoria Falls (return) bus service and those who would want a Masvingo – Triangle (return) bus service are to please register their interest and destination on by 7 February in order for a decision to be made about viability and costs to be established.

Costs for those two routes will be calculated once numbers are known.

Please note that in all cases, this service is subject to confirmation.
