Please note that children should be collected from school not later than 15 minutes after the morning session ends or by 4.30pm if your child has attended afternoon activities. The school is not responsible for children left on the school grounds after these times. Children who are not participating in afternoon activities may not be left at school all day. Regretfully children who are continually left at school until late will be requested to be withdrawn as the school cannot be held liable.
Homework is considered an integral part of the child’s learning process and therefore it is important that parents ensure their children carry out the homework set by their teachers. Homework is given to all children from Standard 1 upwards. Each student is given a Homework Diary in which to record their homework on a daily basis.
A high standard of behavior is upheld at the school, with students being considerate to their teachers, other staff, peers and visitors. There is a clear discipline procedure in the school for teachers to follow which includes counseling for children and, if necessary, calling in their parents to discuss the problem.

Parents are always welcome at the school, but please make an appointment with the Head Teacher’s secretary in advance so that teaching is not interrupted.
