Communication Channels:

Please note that we will be opening up WhatsApp groups organised by forms. These groups will be set with the parameters that only the Administrators can post information. Newsflashes, newsletters and other relevant announcements will be posted from the school on these groups as and when appropriate. We encourage you to accept the invitations to these groups as they are designed to help you stay up to date on key school announcements and areas that require your specific attention as parents. 

Super Parent Supporters:

A big thank you to the many Harare based parents who supported our rugby and hockey teams this past weekend. We urge our parents to be deliberate in setting aside time and resources to support our Eagles as they compete – both away and at home.

Details of each week’s fixtures are found in the newsflash. Please take note of this weekend’s fixtures included in this communique. 

Form 2 Day Trip:

Please note that the Form 2 day trip to Jabulani will take place on Monday 18 July.

A reminder that the first part of the payment for Lower 6 camp is due by Friday 17 June.

The session will run from 10am – 12noon in the MCGS Hall on Saturday 18 June. 

Note that this seminar coincides with Fixture Free weekend and is an opportunity for boarder parents to travel to school to attend this seminar and be able to see their children.
