The Modern Languages Department is proud to re-launch our Costa Rica Fast Forward Immersion Programme this year. This two-week trip is planned for April 12 to 26, 2019. This once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to visit one of the most stunningly beautiful countries in the world is currently priced at $2750 (or roughly $395.00 over the next seven months).

PROJECT EUROPE 2020

We are very pleased to announce PROJECT EUROPE 2020, scheduled for July 16 to July 31, 2020. The trip includes 3 nights in Copenhagen (Denmark), 1 night in Hamburg (Germany), 2 nights in Amsterdam (Holland), 4 nights in Paris (France) and 4 nights in London (England). Costs have been calculated based on rooming preferences: (triples/ quads - $280 p/month, double - $325 p/month, single - $350). This is based on a payment plan of 20 months. Please collect additional information from the High School Office or email gdeane@qchenceforth.com.

THE Q BOOK AND SCHOOL RULES

We urge all parents and students to read thoroughly all of the rules and codes in this year’s Q Book. Many rules have been amended and new rules have been added. Not knowing what the Q Book says will not be accepted as a defense if rules are broken.

EXTRA ACCESS CLASSES/SUPER SATURDAY CLASSES

Super Saturday Classes began on Saturday, September 22, 2018. Letters have been sent home regarding the subject/s and time that your child’s class or classes will be held. Extra Access classes resumed on Monday, September 24, 2018. These classes are held for one hour each afternoon, 3:15 – 4:15 p.m. and some from 4:15 p.m. to 5:15 p.m. Students are advised to choose a subject in which they experience some challenges. All students on probation have to pursue at least two of these courses.

UNIFORMS

Some girls are wearing uniforms whose hems are above their knees. Hemlines should always be worn one inch below the knee. We have also had to ask several girls to revert to their natural hair colour and some boys were sent home to rectify their hair length. Hair is to be properly groomed at all times. Makeup is not allowed. Black tennis shoes and Vans are not allowed in school. Only black leather shoes, that may be polished, are to be worn. Please refer to the Q Book for all uniform/hair policies.

CELL PHONES AND OTHER ELECTRONIC EQUIPMENT

Cell phones and other electronic equipment are prohibited on campus. This includes iPods, iPhones, iPads, cameras and other electronic gadgets. Any item found or seen anywhere on campus, including down the drive will be confiscated i.e. will not be returned. SMART WATCHES ARE ALSO NOT ALLOWED.

DELIVERY OF ITEMS TO STUDENTS

The staff in the High School Office will not be able to deliver money or items (e.g. Lunch Boxes, P.E. Bags, Homework and Home Economics supplies) left in cars or forgotten at home. The constant delivery of these items negatively impacts the office. Parents are asked to ensure that students are organized and that they arrive at school with all that is required.

GLAT RESULTS

Our first parents’ meeting is planned for Tuesday, September 25, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. in The Geoffrey Brown Auditorium. Rules, expectations, policies and procedures will be presented. All parents are urged to make every effort to attend.
