It is hard to believe that we have begun our fourth and final term of 2015. The last term of the year is always a very busy one with work to finish off and many activities and functions taking place.
Some of our staff as well as our Grade 4 to 7 girls will be writing exams this term and we wish them all the best. The Grade 4 to 7 exams start on 5th November and finish on Wednesday 18th November. During this exam period the girls may leave every day at 2:00 pm to go home and study. However, if they are not staying at school for sport they need to tell their coaches. Please note that the Geography exam has been moved from 11 November to 10 November.

The Budget for 2016 together with the financial report for 2014 will be presented to the parents on Wednesday 18th November in the school hall at 6:00 pm.
It is vital that parents attend this meeting in order to approve school fees for 2016.
