Dear Parents and Friends,
I trust that all is as well as it can be. JHC is currently doing continuous assessments with internalterm three examinations starting on the 7th of June 2021.
A virtual meeting was held last week Saturday (15th May 2021) with parents of Year 7, 8 and 9 students – thank you parents, for making the effort
Here follows a summary of topics discussed:
- Covid vaccinations & PCR tests: The goal is to have staff and other campus dwellers vaccinated before resumption of the new academic year. Alternatively, a negative PCR test will be required. The same information will be shared with our regular vendors. To note, I can confirm that this has already begun to further improve the JHC covid-free bubble.
- The JHC Pledge: Two parents mentioned issues pertaining to the sharing of schemes of work and students’ personal items. A reminder that all parents have the right to contact the principal via his email and/or mobile number (shared at the end of every newsletter and on the JHC web site) if it is felt that the desired outcome has not been resolved with the specific staff.
No doubt, it was a productive meeting and a healthy exchange of views, but I do miss our face-to- face meetings. Importantly, the JAMB dates have been announced and this should not impact the IGCSE examination schedule. However, we are still waiting on the release of the WAEC examination schedule.
In conclusion, “Few things in the world are more powerful than a positive push. A smile. A world of optimism and hope. A ‘you can do it’ when things are tough.”; also, “It is a wonderful thing to be optimistic. It keeps you healthy and it keeps you resilient.”; and not forgetting that “A good laugh is sunshine in the house”, or workplace, but don’t laugh too loud otherwise the boss might think that you are up to mischief.
Be safe until we meet again.
