  • Use of technology: CLC reminder

As part of our Connected Learning Community we all agree to follow the Responsible Use Policy and I wanted to remind you of the following:
“Use at school should be limited to installed or online programs that are directly connected to school-related activities, and not involve recreational games, non-academic use of social networking sites or other activities that disrupt studies, peers or classes.”
It’s been noticed that some Middle School students are using their laptops or other devices for gaming. During your free time at school enjoy talking with your classmates and teachers or reading a good book instead of using technology. (Ms Vitty)

  • Retainers Found

Retainers were found in M306 last week. Please collect them at the Secondary School Office. (Ms. Shiina)

  • Sunglasses Found (Repeat)
