importance of good attendance
Good attendance and punctuality at school are critical for achieving success and are also important life skills. Building this life skill now can lead to greater success later in life when students join the workforce.
AP exam fee collection
AP Exam fee collection forthcoming from accounts; all AP exams for 2021-2022 are ordered.
importance of getting picked up on time
Recently, we have noticed that more and more high school students are not leaving school or are not picked up on time after classes are dismissed at the end of the school day. This has resulted in some students making the journey over to the new Starbucks unsupervised. We are concerned that this could lead to issues with overcrowding, altercations or other unnecessary issues. We thank the parent community for your continued support as we support our students.
hsc week update (previously sent to parents)
Thank you all for your understanding and flexibility as we have reintroduced the opportunity for students to travel both internationally and locally for HSC Week in the high school. There have been frequently asked questions about various aspects of the planning process for HSC Week this year that we hope to address here.
