JHC Parents Newsletter 7th October 2020

Dear Parents and Friends,

I trust that your families and you are safe, healthy, and content.
Just a reminder that JHC will welcome students as from Sunday, 11th of October 2020, as shared in the last newsletter.

Here are the dates again,Sunday, 11th October 2020 – only the new Year 7 students for the orientation which starts at 10:00 am promptly. We will meet in the new JHC Multipurpose Hall Monday, 12th October 2020 – all Year 8, 9, 10, 11 and 12 students to arrive.

To note, if there are any new Year 7 students with older siblings at JHC then
they may arrive on Sunday to save on an extra trip. However, please inform Mr. Oloyede in advance. This arrangement is ONLY for new Year 7 students with older siblings at JHC.

We are ready to receive our students, new and old, and extremely excited to get the new academic year underway. Furthermore, face masks (at least between two to four washable fabrics) must be brought to College with at least 2 bottles of pocket hand sanitizer, all boys must return with appropriate haircut and girls if wearing braids, this must be of the same colour as that of their hair. No face mask, then no entry from
the main gate.

In conclusion, ‘We cannot change our past. We cannot change the fact that people act in a certain way. We cannot change the inevitable. The only thing we can do is play on the one string we have, and that is our attitude’; and ‘Adopting the right attitude can convert a negative stress into a positive one’.
Be blessed and may God’s smile of approval be upon us until we meet again.
Yours truly,
Abraham. P. Swart
