Good morning, Pretoria Campus Parents and welcome to the final Parent Update of the 2017-18 scholastic year.
We have enjoyed a wonderful week with many end of year events, including the very successful Grade 8 Carnival, and our assembly celebration, which was stunning. Grade 5 also enjoyed a lovely ceremony as they leave behind elementary school and embark on the next stage of their learning voyage. The Middle School appreciated their special trip on Thursday, which included bowling and skating – thank you to our generous Parent Association for their donation towards this event.
…and so, it all comes to a close…today is the last day of the school year and students will depart at 1:30 p.m.
