Looking Ahead:

 

Director's Search

Wednesday, October 10, 2018: The School Director search consultants will be visiting the Pretoria campus on Wednesday, October 10 to seek input from our Community on AISJ's strengths, challenges and future needs.  Parents are invited to meet with the consultants on from 12 PM – 12:45 PM in the Pretoria Parents' Room.

 

International Day

Friday, October 12, 2018: AISJ's International Day celebration will be held on Friday, October 12.  All Pretoria students will arrive at campus in the morning and will then travel to our Johannesburg campus by bus.  On the Johannesburg campus, we will join our friends in the Parade of Nation, international day activities and then have lunch at the International Day Food Festival.  Communication has already been sent to parents with regard to pick up at the end of the day, for which there are three options:  parent pick up at the Johannesburg campus at 12:30, parent pick up at the Pretoria campus at 1:30 or students can take their regular bus home.  Please note that the regular bus will take students home directly from the Johannesburg campus so students will probably reach home about 30 minutes earlier than usual.  Parents who will be attending International Day are asked to please not eat lunch with their children due to limited space.

 

Have an enjoyable Friday and weekend.

Dr. Amy Parish

Pretoria Campus Principal
