Dear Parents and Friends,
Greetings and well wishes from Agbor!
I can happily report that students are settling into their routines and have fast shed the mellow holiday attitude. Parents of the Year 7 students will have the opportunity to call them this weekend as this will be the first opportunity to talk and catch-up since they arrived earlier this month.
Congratulations to the Year 7 Scholarship recipients (see page three), we offer you our support and look forward to living up to your potential to make us proud! Similarly, best wishes to the newly appointed student leadership (see page three) – heads, deputy heads and prefects. Never forget that ‘to whom much is given, much is demanded’. We have the confidence that you will exceed in executing your responsibilities.
The BECE results were received and our students performed well, so a heartfelt note of gratitude to the staff and students, and of course, you, the parents. To note, we are expanding the co-curricular programme to include Karate, Judo and Tae-Kwando and specialist coaches will be utilised. Furthermore, expert coaches will train students in Volleyball and Basketball. The students who show a keen interest in the Oriental Martial Arts may progress within the national grading/promotion system. More information will follow regarding the latter.
In addition, we have the JHC Interhouse Athletics & Parents Visiting Day coming up on Saturday, 12th of October 2019 and we look forward to all parents joining us for a fun day.
In conclusion, ‘When you rise in the morning, give thanks for the light, for your life, for your strength. Give thanks for your food and for the joy of living, and never forget your Creator. If you see no reason to give thanks, the fault lies in yourself.’
Have a great weekend until we meet again.
Abraham P. Swart
