Conflict Resolution

Semester Exam Week
During the Week of June 5th to June 9th, Secondary students will be sitting semester exams.  All students have been sent their schedule for that week.  Years 6, 7 and 8 students will only have exams in Maths and Sciences while other year levels may have exams starting the previous Friday (2nd of June) or end the following Monday 12th of June.  All Secondary students are expected to be in School between 8:00 am and 3:00 pm each day of this week, regardless of whether they have exams, regular classes or Study Hall scheduled. 
Year 6 Camp
On Tuesday and Wednesday of this week our Year 6 generation spent two days at the La Montaña Christian Camps in San Ramón.  Students participated in a range of activities throughout the two days aimed at promoting teamwork and having fun. 
PE Uniform
We would like to clarify that students are permitted to wear their PE uniform to School only on days when they receive Physical Education classes.  If a student does not have the official PE uniform, provided by Tonka, then they are expected to wear their regular school uniform on days in which they have PE.  They will then be permitted to change into Sporting clothes at the start of their Physical Education class.
For IGCSE Physical Education students and students participating in afterschool clubs, the expectation is that students will wear the regular School uniform throughout the day and then change into the required sporting clothes at the start of the physical activity.
