School Closure Due to COVID-19
We are sorry to have closed school two weeks earlier than planned. However, we managed to test the children for end of term and reports will be ready for collection starting from Monday, 6th April 2020. It has not been an easy term due to security and health threats arising from gassing incidents and COVID-19 (Corona Virus).
We have intensified security measures in the school which includes investing in CCTV and reducing the number of people reaching the learning area. We ask of you to always inform the school of any changes in transport arrangements for your children and to pick them from school as soon as school is over.
