Newsletter 6, Term 3 2020

WELCOME BACK ALL!

Happy 45th Independence PNG! We celebrated in style last week!

Seasonal greetings to everyone! Hope all  of you are well and smiling! By the way this is only a brief letter to inform you all with the remaining activities of this term. It will not be the normal newsletter!

YES, It has been a while since we last shared and understandably due to the Covid-19 Pandemic most of this year, some children have been affected. I can only sympathise with those who are unable to attend so far. However, this has not in any way affected the programs and activities set out for our 2020 academic year!

During the lockdown periods, the teachers continued to prepare and to provide “homework” for all classes. Parents were asked to collect them so there was no disruption with the children’s learning. Many parents who did this continue to bring their children back to school. These children will be able to upgrade in 2021 because they would have completed the year academically.

The list below is a brief advice for your information and attention so please do take note!

END OF TERM 3 CONCERT: Only the students will be able to have a small party after some class presentations on Friday before home-time. *Parents and guardians have not been invited because of the health and safety of our children. We do hope everyone understands the position the management is taking.

This newsletter is not the usual capacity as most news have been described briefly above. Should you have any queries please do not hesitate to email us at office@bavaschool.com, call 3258715 or just speak to Mrs Tione at the front desk. On behalf of the teachers, the staff, management and myself, I wish to apologise to all our parents/guardians for not being able to join us this Friday to close the term in the usual style! Just know that we will certainly miss you and we hope that you do understand our position! Thank you very much for your continuing support and understanding!
