Parents Evening

We are having our first parents evening for this academic year on Thursday 18th October from 3:30pm. You will have received a message for online booking, please ask office staff for help if you struggle. This is an excellent opportunity for you to discuss your child's progress with their teacher. 





The weather is getting colder so make sure your child is wrapped for getting to and from school and playtime.  We expect all children to be in school on time. We are looking forward to working with parents to promote punctuality and attendance. Please contact the office if your child is not going to be in school for any reason, thank you. 


Agora Payments - Everyone should have received their codes for signing into Agora now. You will be able to make payments to school online. After the Christmas holidays we will not be taking cash payments in the office any longer.  If any Parent needs help with this please just let us know in the Office.

The Wild Roadshow


This exciting workshop involved the showing and handling of exotic animals such as Snake, Gecko, Tarantula, Giant Snail, Giant Millipede, Giant Cockroach, and Scorpion. Some of our children are currently studying rain forest, it really helped them looking at different animals and learning about their habitat.
