Dear Parents and Friends,
Time certainly flies when you enjoy yourself. No doubt, the students currently on half-term break will be wanting an extra few days holiday. However, the reality is that we have an extremely busy second half-term ahead and all of us, including students, will have to do their part. Thus, we are looking forward welcoming them this coming Sunday, bright-eyed and eager to continue to do their best.
A reminder to all parents to check that your children have all the correct uniform items and correct gear, in other words, no clothing items which are not approved or electronic devices, etc. before their arrival on campus.
The Year 12 students have been engaged in the IGCSE examinations and will be completing the last examination in less than three weeks’ time. Once again, a vote of thanks to the staff who stayed back to ensure that these pioneers are well cared for, academically and physically. Here is a summary of the programme for the next half-term.

In conclusion, here are some wise counsel for a positive day and life: ‘Did I offer peace today? Did I bring a smile to someone’s face? Did I say words of healing? Did I let go of my anger and resentment? Did I forgive? Did I love? These are the real questions. I must trust that the little bit of love that I sow now will bear many fruits, here in this world and the life to come.’ Enjoy the weekend until we meet again.
