MARKING AND REPORT CARD WRITING DAYS

Marking days and Report Card writing days will be held from Monday, June 11 through Tuesday, June 19, 2018. There will be no school for High School students on these days. Students return to school on Wednesday, June 20, 2018.

REPORT CARD DISTRIBUTION

Report Cards will be distributed on Thursday, June 21, 2018. Parents are asked to ensure that all tuition fees, library fines and printing fees are paid. All overdue books must also be returned. Any of the above left outstanding will result in reports being withheld. Therefore, we ask that these matters be resolved without delay. Parents will be required to collect their child’s report card from the Counselling Centre if the GPA is below 2.00. For students, whose GPA falls below 2.0 summer school will also be mandatory. As the report card envelopes will contain a lot of important information, we ask that students not open the envelope but rather deliver it to their parent/guardian in the sealed manner in which it was given to them. This will allow all vital and necessary information to be received by the parent/guardian. School will close at 12:00 noon on Thursday, June 21, 2018. Summer School will begin the following Monday, June 25, 2018.
