Dear Parents and Guardians


Annual General Meeting 11th March 7.00 pm in the Training Room

We urge all parents to attend this most important annual event. To obtain a quorum at least 53 parents must be present. The AGM is an opportunity to hear from current board members about 2019 and to participate in the election of new board members and the new PTFA Chair for 2020. Meetings usually last no more than one and a half hours and light refreshments will be provided. The School will also run a creche for younger children on the night. The Board would like to hear from anyone interested in becoming either a board member or the Chair of PTFA (who also sits on the Board). Please call Tony Baron personally on either 30186 or 7321385 to receive further details.

Assessments are currently underway, please continue to support your child/ren with their time management, assignments and study schedule.


b. Punctuality

We would be grateful for the cooperation of all parents/guardians in ensuring that their child leaves home early each morning to get to school on time and in encouraging them to be punctual. Students who arrive late without a valid reason are issued with a 30-minute detention that da
