Speech Day Appreciation

Our sincere thanks to all who joined us for Speech Day and to those who chose to partner with us in some way. Your presence and contributions are appreciated. 

Examination Season

Is in full swing. 

We pray that our examination candidates will acquit themselves well in this season. Please take note of a couple of key points:

  • SWOT leave for Form 4, Lower 6 and Upper 6 pupils starts on Monday 21 October. 
  • During SWOT leave, day scholars who do not have examinations on that particular day may remain at home. Those with examinations should report to school in their proper uniform. 
  • Boarders will SWOT at school and should also be in proper school uniform. 
  • Those with examinations before SWOT leave starts may take a mini-SWOT time. Where someone has a morning examination, they may SWOT the afternoon before the examinations. Where someone has an afternoon examination, they may SWOT that morning. Note that teachers are aware of the dual pressure and work with pupils to help them cope. 
  • Lower 6 lessons resume on MONDAY 4 November. 
  • Form 4 and Upper 6 boarders are expected to leave hostel either the day of their final examination or the day after. Boarders are to not stay longer than that. 
  • Attached is an overview of public examinations by examination level – O Level, AS Level and A2 Level. Please review this document to help ascertain when your child’s last examination is.
  • Note that all pupils need gate passes to leave campus in this season for any departures before 5pm or when boarders are signing out for the term.
