MESSAGE FROM PRINCIPAL

Welcome back to campus!
We are elated to have the children back the noises in our hallways are rejuvenating. Two years was a long time.
We also welcome the new families that have joined us. Thank you for trusting us with your children. We promise to walk this journey with you as we aim at producing holistic and responsible citizens.

As a school, we have tremendously grown as we hit our 100th mark we can’t be happier. We have also added on a few structures as we await approvals from the city Authority to be able to ground break our new construction as easier communicated by our CEO.

The term has been filled with so many activities that we were happy to do them once again in person.
Academically, we clearly see the effects of the pandemic where many concepts were not clearly understood online due to many reasons, we have had to go back to revisit these topics and we, therefore, request parents to help us and supervise these children while at home so that homework is done and submitted on time.

Lastly, I request that all our parents take time out and read through our school policies and parent handbooks so that we know how the school is run. We are all excited to be back and can’t wait for the growth that lies ahead.

Happy holidays!
– Evelyn Twebaze

MESSAGE FROM CURRICULUM COORDINATOR

As a school community, we continue to practice perseverance in everything we do. We encourage our students to tackle challenges because they understand that learning takes a lot of efforts. Our hope is that they do not give up when things get difficult, because they have learned strategies to persevere.

We are immensely pleased to have our kids back at school campus! We did make it! It was not an easy term- thank you for your patience and endurance as we have ridden the corona virus.

Rumina Gaulani

As we set goals for third term, we focus on participating in class, extra curriculum activities, and physical education. We know that our students can do what they set their minds to; we see them trying and we see them succeeding and we celebrate their individual growth and progress daily. Thank you for your continued support and patience as we navigate each new day.

As we head towards Easter break, and into the third trimester, work does ramp up in complexity- it is important that your child remains actively involved, and ask questions as the need arise. If you have any questions or concern, do not hesitate to reach out!

Thank you to everyone!
Rumina Gaulani.

Fire drill

Fire drill took place on 18 th March 2022 in the morning. When the emergency alarm went on, all the children were sent to a safe place in the field as soon as possible. Children were aware of the alarm and tried to be calm and patience during the drill. It was a very good learning experience for them and completed it successfully.
