UPDATES AND NOTIFICATIONS:
WEEK IN REVIEW: As Week 17 comes to an end, we would once again like to thank all students, staff members and parents for their continued support and flexibility as we continue with our virtual learning programme. While we recognise that virtual learning presents a range of challenges we have been delighted by the levels of student engagement as they continue to adapt to the realities of distance learning.
