WELCOME BACK TO SCHOOL (2022)

Posted on 2022-01-05 11:40:10

School reopens on Thursday 6th January 2022. We hope you all had a restful break. We are looking forward to seeing our boys but if your son, or a member of the household has Covid symptoms, please do NOT return to school until it is safe to do so. If your son has travelled overseas, please wait until you are sure that everyone is symptom free.

We will do our level best to keep all classes in school but if we have no other option, we may have to send classes home, temporarily, as a very last resort, if we do not have adequate staffing.

Keep safe and we look forward to another term of wonderful teamwork.

HUGE THANKS. HAPPY CHRISTMAS & NEW YEAR
