With the break in the rain, our builders have today finished securing the main roof for our new building and will be in a better position to continue in inclement weather.

Next week we will hold our annual Sanskrit recitation competition and finals. Sanskrit instruction, from Lower 1st to 6th Class, is one of the unique features of our curriculum, and has been an integral part of our school since it was founded. Our students benefit from learning this ancient classical language, which like Latin has […]

There were only a few nerves (from students and parents!) upon separation, and they settled in very quickly to their new environment, and with their teachers Miss Marley and Mrs Tamborini. Our current 5th Class had the opportunity to meet their young […]

We trust this newsletter finds our community well as we move into a predicted lovely weekend! Our School is well prepared for an extended 4 week lockdown.
