Post-Covid School Re-opening

Dear Parent / Guardian,
Greetings…!
We are grateful to the Almighty God for the safety, good health and blessings of the year 2020.
We wish to appreciate all of you for the commitment and cooperation you have accorded to the school this year. The return of Form IV students gave us valuable learning experience in practical observance of COVID-19 protocols.
It is our intention to ensure complete adherence to the Ministry of Health guidelines on COVID-19. However, reporting to school is staggered to avoid crowding, therefore, siblings in a lower class may report on the same day as their elder siblings.

Reporting dates are as follows:

Tuesday, 05/01/2021 Form 4 Reporting: 4B – Morning (9.00a.m. – 12.00p.m) 4A – Afternoon (2.00p.m. – 4.30p.m.)
Wednesday, 06/01/2021 Form 3 Reporting: 3A – Morning (9.00a.m.-12.00p.m)
3B – Afternoon (2.00p.m. – 4.30p.m.)
Thursday, 07/01/2021 Form 2 Reporting: 2A – Morning (9.00a.m. – 12.00p.m)
2B – Afternoon (2.00p.m. – 4.30p.m.)
Friday, 08/01/2021 Form 1 Reporting: 1A – Morning (9.00a.m. – 12.00p.m)
1B – Afternoon (2.00p.m. – 4.30p.m.)

NOTE: A student who fails to report to school on the scheduled day without prior notification will be deemed to have transferred to another institution and will thus forfeit their position in the school. They will, therefore, be replaced immediately without advance consultation.
