NOVEMBER 8 / 2018

Dear Parents,

The autumn break is an opportunity for your child to do just that - take a break, recharge and reconnect with family and friends.

Our teachers have made a special effort to limit the number of assessments in the week following the break to allow our students to take some time away from their studies. We hope you enjoy quality time together.
