HS DAILY – Monday, September 11, 2017


  • Lunch

Please be reminded that when we pay for a set lunch in the cafeteria it is for one person only and not for sharing with our friends. There is no limit to the quantity of food in the set lunch and this system relies on us all being honest. (Ms. Vitty)

  • Early dismissal

Tomorrow (Tuesday 12th Sept) MS and HS classes will finish at 3:20pm as teachers have an extended professional development session. Activities will start at 3:30pm and finish at 5:30pm when there is early dismissal. There are several dates during the academic year when classes finish early for staff development and these can be found on the calendar. (Ms. Vitty)
