High School Week 5 Newsletter

Dear Parent/Guardian,

We have successfully come to the end of week 5 of this term. It has been a busy week for our students and staff. I wish to thank you for your continued support.

All will be well if……

The year 10’s have started the IGCSE syllabus in earnest. This is the most important stage as the better part of the IGCSE foundation is built now. Each student is encouraged and challenged to start working hard now. Proper planning is critical and more time should be spent preparing for the IGCSE examinations not far from now. We encourage each parent to partner with us as we insist on students spending more time to study.

To the students, spend at least 45 minutes each morning to study. It can make a big difference! Then all will be well!
