FROM THE DESK OF THE ACTING PRINCIPAL
Thank you to the staff, in all phases in the school for hosting their parent
interviews in the various sections of the school. These meetings are
important as the staff and parents can plan constructively about the
academic and social development of each child. We, as staff,
appreciate the attendance of the parents at these interviews. Please
share any information that was discussed between the staff and parent so that
the child is aware of the positive input, praise or definite guidelines that need to
