WELCOME BACK ALL!
A visit from our principal Ms Daro always ends with an exercise routine
Slowly but surely things are getting back to normal. The weather has been a bit tricky but mostly keeping the environment cool and clean. The rain has been a blessing to everyone keeping the dust and dirt at bay! Regardless, the students have settled in well and are all working hard towards their final tests and assessments. Having said that, I would like to ask all parents & guardians to make sure to bring their children on time to school. This way they do not miss out on their revision work for the past three terms! We have traveled a long way to be here and I am so proud and thankful for your support, especially the progress your children have made this year! We are looking forward to a fresh new year in 2024!
The trust and confidence you place in us to take care of and educate your children speaks volumes. We have enjoyed your company throughout the last three terms. Now we are on the final leg of our journey together for the 2023 School Year! There is so much to do and we are making sure the children are upbeat and in good form to make it to the next level! Each class has its own news spot in this edition. I would be doing a disservice if I played their part in imparting their news to you. They will have their own story to tell you below! Now let us begin with the rest of the term commitments.
