3rd Term 2013 Newsletter 01
Dear Parent/ Guardian
The final lap of 2013 is upon us and we are thankful to God that all staff members and our girls are back safely after the holiday break. In true Convent style, work has started in all earnest and we anticipate having a great term culminating in the end of year External and Internal examinations
Please ensure that your daughter is neatly dressed for school each morning. A few cases of torn uniforms have been noted, where the blouse collar or skirt side pocket- seam is in bad shape. This looks untidy and more so affects the girls’ self-esteem. I encourage you to take note of such issues and address them accordingly.
After reviewing progress in the computer department, we felt that if the girls are to sit for their ICDL modules and finish the course in either Form 3 or 4 payments are to be made before term begins so that upon completion of a module the girls can sit for the examination promptly rather than write reminders and wait for payment to be done in a haphazard manner before examinations can be administered. An examination Fee of $20 has therefore been levied on the 3rd Term statements for Forms 1 and 2.
SCHOOL FEES PAYMENT
Thank you for honoring your commitment to pay school fees on time. A firm reminder to those who may have been given a week’s extension, please settle your Account on the agreed date.
Parents whose daughters are sitting for external examinations in 4 weeks’ time, please ensure that your daughter arrives an hour before commencement of her exam. All examination candidates were issued with their Statements of entry as well as their Examination Time tables. Please familiarize yourself with these documents so that you ensure that your daughter is on time and at school when she is meant to be. Candidates who arrive late for an examination may be disqualified.
Dr Mudenda will be conducting career assessments on Thursday 9 September 2013. If you wish for your daughter to undergo the assessment please make the necessary payment before or on the date. The cost in total is $50.00.
Please keep the detailed Calendar accessible so that you are familiar with the key activities that will be taking place at School this Term. The detailed calendar can also be accessed from our website.
Parents please be reminded that your daughters are not allowed to carry cellphones to school. If caught, the cell phone will be confiscated and kept at the school office till end of term. It will be released upon payment of a fine. Exam candidates should remember that they risk being disqualified if they are caught with a cell phone on them in the examination room. This is a Cambridge directive.
The Form 4s went for a retreat last week, Friday afternoon, and found the experience very rewarding. The spiritual exercise was meant to give them support and also help calm their nerves as they get ready for their final examinations.
May the peace of God which surpasses all understanding continue to guard your hearts and mind in Christ Jesus.
