1st Term 2012 Newsletter
Dear Parent /Guardian
Compliments of the new season! I trust that you had a joyful festive season and that, whatever you have resolved to do in 2012 will usher you into a realm of excellence and divine order.
I should like to inform you that Sr Philomena who was our Deputy Headmistress was transferred to Harare at the end of 2011. She was hardworking and pleasant and will be missed by all of us. Meanwhile the Regional Superior has appointed Ms Jenny Moore to take over as Deputy Headmistress with effect from 1 January 2012. I should like to congratulate her and wish her all the very best in her new position.
We have a full staff compliment and this term we welcomed Mr. Chikonye who joined the Sports Department as assistant coach. Among his other duties Mr. Chikonye will introduce Boot Camp so that our girls have yet another option of sporting activities to choose from.
Cambridge results will be out on 23 January 2012 and we expect the L6s to report to school on 18 January 2012 for orientation. Before then, they are encouraged to pay their school fees, after seeking “clearance” from the Secretary’s Office.
Form 1 parents are reminded of their meeting with Form 1 teachers and Heads of department on Tuesday 17 January 5:30pm sharp in the High school hall.
Form 4 & U6 parents ;- please psyche up and be budgeting for Cambridge examination fees which are due sometime in the 2nd term. Please note that the overseas examinations account which gave parents leeway to make direct deposits is no longer functional. You will be advised on payment plans before end of term.
The following reminders are essential to keep your daughter out of trouble:
It is paramount that we teach our daughters PUNCTUALITY. I am therefore appealing to you parents to ensure that your daughter is on time for school every day. Late comers miss out on the first lesson of the day as they should stand under the “big tree” so that they do not disrupt lessons in progress.
Girls should turn up for school smartly dressed and skirts should be knee high or lower. Anything shorter will result in your daughter being sent back home. Blazers are essential for all school functions.
LOITERING IN TOWN:
This is a serious offence whose penalty is very high. No girl is allowed to go to town during lunch or any other time. Please familiarize yourself with your daughter’s timetable so that you know when to pick her up or when to expect her home.
Lastly encourage your daughter to adhere to school rules so that her years in high school may be some of the best & memorable years of her life.
