Dear Parents
Everyone is thoroughly enjoying our return to a more normal school day, although all protocols regarding Covid prevention remain in place and are strictly observed.

In addition to afternoon activities, we will be including optional activities such as ballet, tennis, modern dancing and gymnastics as from next week.  To assist parents who would have difficulty collecting their children within twenty minutes of the activities ending, we are offering Day Boarding to pupils in ECD to Grade 5 as per the communications forwarded yesterday.  Please note that pupils are only allowed to remain at school on the afternoons they have scheduled activities or during the times they are doing optional activities, unless they are Day Boarders.

We will be holding the following Termly Inter-House Competitions on the dates indicated:

Inter-House Bonds & Tables   Friday 4th March
Inter-House Spelling    Friday 18th March
Inter-House Shona Word A Day  Friday 25th March
Inter-House Public Speaking   Tuesday 5th April

Further, we will be holding our Inter-House Athletics for Grades 3 – 7 this term.  Depending on the Covid restrictions, this will either be held by Grade during the mornings or will be held on Saturday 2nd April.

We will also be holding Inter-House Cross Country events by Grade with the trophies and awards to be presented at the Final Assembly at the end of term.

Our Parent/Teacher Consultations will be held during the afternoons of Monday 4th April and Tuesday 5th April.

Please note that now pupils and teachers are back in the classrooms, all communications to the school, including informing of absenteeism and queries, should either be put in writing or directed to the office and not forwarded directly to teachers on WhatsApp.
