Newsflash 6/7/22

Dear Parents and Guardians,

Internal Examinations:

Mid Year Examinations are underway. Please refer to the timetable for exact details. 

Day Scholar Parents please note:

  • Once your child’s examinations have started, a day scholar is not expected to come to school on a day that they do not have an examination. 
  • Day scholar pupils may be collected between 1-2pm if they do not have an afternoon examination. From 3:30pm onwards pupils should be collected 15 minutes after their afternoon examination ends. Any other collection time will require your child to get a gate pass from the Examinations Department. 

Celebrate with us!

We congratulate our Eagles, Sharon Marangwanda and Karl Makahamadze along with the rest of this junior Moot Court team on winning the European Championships! What a fantastic achievement – not forgetting that they had already won the world championships. We look forward to the team’s return to Zimbabwe on Thursday evening.
