Public Holiday (Eid)

 

The school will be closed on Monday for the Eid Holiday.

 

EID MUBARAK!

 

 

Welcome to new children!

 

We are pleased to welcome Luna Moretto (who has joined Pre-Nursery Class) and Chiara Moretto (who has joined Year 1).

 

 

 

 Update from Board of Trustees

 

Last night the School Board set the fees for September 2017.  They are included on the back of the newsletter.  We have made every effort to keep the fees as affordable as possible.  There is only a small increase for primary and the secondary fees are remaining the same as this school year.

 

We would like to inform parents that you are welcome to start paying term 1 fees as soon as the school closes on 5th July.  This will help the school and also help to reduce the size of your monthly payments.
