Anti bullying week
Reach out was the theme of this year’s Anti Bullying week which was held from November 14th to 18th. The global week-long activities commenced with an Anti Bullying themed assembly on Monday to reiterate the theme of the celebration.

Examination preparation tips 
As we get into the examination season, we trust these tips will help you in offering support for your child. 

  • Organise a space for study
  • Create a study schedule

  • Help them to create study goals 

  • Encourage them to take time out for regular breaks 

  • Ask your child how they are feeling about the exam

  • Encourage them to go to bed early

  • Give them a good breakfast

  • Double- check their school supplies; pencils, pens, sharpeners, erasers, rulers and more.

  • Ensure they are familiar with the google classroom login details

  • Ensure they arrive school on time

  • Ultimately, ask them how the exams went, help them understand that exams do not totally define their abilities. Applaud their efforts and cheer them on to put in more effort.

Here’s wishing all our students outstanding success in their examinations.

Thank you.
