2nd Term 2012 Newsletter
It is befitting that we thank God when our staff and pupils come back safely from the holidays as more often than not we take such mercies for granted. The term has started well and the stage is set for what promises to be a busy term.
At the end of 1st Term we bade farewell to Miss Deas an excellent English teacher who has now retired from teaching after serving the school for 10 years. We welcome Mrs. Ntuli who takes over from Miss Deas and wish her a happy and long association with the school. We also said goodbye to Mrs. Godfrey a dedicated coach who resigned at the end of the term to take a break from teaching and coaching. We wish her well in her future endeavours.
The following are key reminders that I urge you to act upon so that we are able to move smoothly during the course of 2nd term.
If you have opted to pay your daughter’s fees in instalments be reminded that the first instalment of 50% for Forms 1-4 is $540 and for 6th Formers $590. Your daughter will not be allowed to attend lessons until this amount is paid in FULL. The 2nd instalment will be due at the end of May.
Parents, whose daughters will embark on the French- Paris trip in August, are to please ensure that they adhere to deadlines for payment of air fares. Also, remember that the Visa interviews will take place in Harare at the French embassy approximately 30 days before departure.
Parents whose daughters are sitting for external examinations at the end of the year, are reminded that their school fees has to be paid in full before examination fees are accepted. Deadline for examination fees payment is 15th June.
Please mark your daughter’s winter clothing so that if she carelessly loses it at school she can easily check for it at the lost and found property. There is a tendency by some of leaving jerseys and anoraks unattended to when temperatures warm up by mid-day.
In my previous newsletter to you I appealed to all parents who drop off their daughters during the morning peak hour to desist from making U turns or parking in the middle of the road for well over 5minutes while deciding how much tuck money to give their daughters at this extremely busy time. Thank you very much to the majority of our parents who have endeavoured to put this into practice. This has gone a long way in easing congestion. However if ALL of us were to be considerate we can still improve on the smooth flow of traffic during the morning peak hour.
May I also kindly remind you to submit your email address if you have not yet done so. In case your daughter forgets to give you the hard copy of reminders or newsletters from school, be reminded that you can still access these on our website www.conventhighbulawayo.org
The piping and plumbing project currently underway has left our grounds looking a bit untidy. Please bear with us until the project is completed when the paving and tar will be neatly restored.
