I would like to give my heartfelt thanks to our board of directors for the continued visionary guidance, the parents for the support and trust you have shown us, to the teachers who have shown resilience and adopted to new teaching methods like virtual classrooms a big thank you. Lastly, to our learners who have soldiered on with the changing times.

The academic year 2020-2021 has taught us many lessons and one of the great lessons has been adaptation to changing times .We have had the privilege to continue learning and we promise to keep doing so.

I am also excited to inform our community that the Cambridge curriculum is revised every five years and such has been done, so from the next academic year we shall be teaching the new curriculum, teachers have been delay trained and the school is procuring new books, which will be here by new academic year.

I would like to congratulate our learners from reception class upon their completion of their early Childhood and our year 6 learners upon their completion of the primary level. Congratulations!

 Finally yet importantly, I would like thank every one of us for the dedication and effort put together to make this academic year a success .I wish you all a restful summer break!

MESSAGE FROM DEPUTY PRINCIPAL

Dear parents and guardians,

As we come to the end of our academic year, it is a good time to reflect on what we have achieved, update upon on some important changes and look forward to an even more successful 2021-2022.

Firstly, I would like to thank you all for your continuous support towards the school. Without us working together we couldn’t have achieved so much. It certainly wasn’t the end to the academic year that we were expecting, but we have coped with many challenges and changes that occurred.  We are incredibly impressed with all your efforts to engage in these difficult times.

I would like to acknowledge the hard work of all the staff who has worked tremendously in planning, preparing and delivering the live lessons, alongside teaching the children in the class.
Over the summer break and to continue their learning, all children will be given holiday home work. Please encourage your children to complete as many activities as they can as this will help them prepare for the next academic year.

Finally wishing you all a very happy and safe holidays!
