Superstars Summer Camp
Closing date for registration is Wednesday, 22nd June. Please note that we will be unable to accept registration after that date.

Summer Arrangements
Remember that school closes this Friday, 24th June for the summer holidays (12:15 for Infants and 12:30 for all others). We reopen for all pupils on Wednesday, 31st August. See our 2022/23 Calendar.

End of Year
Despite the increased freedom of the past couple of months, it has been a year again dominated by disruption due to Covid. Absences were much higher than normal and for much of the year we were still very restricted in how children (and staff) could mix in school. Thankfully restrictions have eased and we have been able to resume many of our more enjoyable activities. Let’s hope that future waves of the virus continue to become less disruptive as immunity due to prior infection and a high level of vaccination in the population help to counteract its worst effects.

As we approach the end of another year I would like to thank all those who help to keep the school running so well, including those who volunteer their time and efforts in many ways. I especially want to thank the staff for their hard work and for all the dedication and the exceptional care and attention that they give to your children.

There is a special, happy atmosphere in our school that pupils, parents and school staff have all developed and nurtured over the years. Thank you for playing your part and we really appreciate your continued support. I hope that during the summer all of you parents and caregivers find at least a little well-earned time for yourselves to rest and relax.

Thank you.

Principal

Newsletter 16th June

Covid
For the first time in many weeks, we have been notified of a case of Covid. This is an opportune time to thank you all for your excellent cooperation with public health measures during the past couple of years. We know that it was difficult at times for all concerned and we appreciate in particular those parents who informed us of cases. It is unclear how the next school year will be affected but for now,  public health advice remains that – tested or not – if your child has symptoms, s/he should not attend school. Thank you all again.

6th Class Graduation
This will take place next Wednesday, 22nd June at 7:30 p.m. in the school. More details to follow.

School Reports
This year’s school reports are available on Aladdin. Regarding standardised test results, as in previous years it is important to note that the test is not an examination and it is unfair to make direct comparisons. Teachers gather information about your child’s learning all the time and this is part of the process. It is an indication of your child’s achievement in English (reading) and Maths.
