Dear Parents and Friends,
I trust that all is well.
Firstly, we are proud to announce the membership of James Hope College to the Microsoft Imagine Academy (MIA) programme. This programme will provide technology education for students and staff spanning computer basics to high-level programming, along with information and communications technology management – from a complete Computer Science and Office 365 curricula geared toward converting computer users into computer developers as well as converting computer users into productivity software experts. Students can get hands-on experience with the latest Microsoft technology to learn new skills and gain a competitive edge in the next step in their academics.
To learn more about the programme please CLICK to see the attached launch brief.
Secondly, all staff are labouring intensively to prepare our Year 9 and 11 students for their respective examinations in April, May/June and October, through booster classes and subject clinics. In addition, the Year 11 students will receive additional support over several weekends and during the holidays to perform at optimum level for the scheduled IGCSE examinations. Please see the information from Mr Ikuyinminu.
In the third instance, I look forward seeing the parents of our Year 9 and 11 students for the Academic Review this Saturday at 10:00 am and punctuality will be appreciated.
In conclusion, ‘Never forget where you have been. Never lose sight of where you are going. And never take for granted the people who travel the journey with you.’; also, ‘Acceptance and tolerance and forgiveness, those are life-altering lessons.’; and ’Love recognises no barriers. It jumps hurdles, leaps fences, penetrate walls to arrive at its destination full of hope.’
Mr. Abraham Swart
