In the Junior School assembly, the choir sang John Lennon’s Imagine. Both Junior School and MS/SS assemblies were impressive and the students were exceptionally focussed and attentive.

“Respectfully, we gave thanks to those who sacrificed their lives, giving us the privileged existence of living without active warfare in our lives.” - Conor Jones Head of School

Photos of both assemblies can be found here

Pick Up and Drop Off Reminder

Dear Parents,

As we get into November and the threat of snow looms (Yay!! Yikes!!), we remind all parents of our parking and driving expectations. Note there is no parking between the school and the corner of Glen Elm and when parents park there it creates a dangerous situation for both pedestrians and drivers and can upset our neighbours.

Many thanks for your cooperation and keeping all of us safe this coming winter.

Did you know?

A goat herder on the Ethiopian plateau in the 14th century remarked that after eating the berries from a certain tree, his goats became so energetic that they did not want to sleep at night. By the end of the 18th century, coffee had become one of the world's most profitable export crops. After crude oil, coffee is the most sought commodity in the world.
