Greetings to all, it is surreal that this first term is coming to an end. Phew! What an indifferent and onerous term it has been, having to navigate and adjust in the ‘new normal’ caused by the Covid-19 pandemic which has disrupted the verve associated with schooling.
Despite a challenging year, with all odds stacked against them, the Class of 2020 did the school proud, surpassing a benchmark laid by their predecessors with an outstanding 92,8% pass rate, the best in recent past. Fortitude and hard work displayed by both educators and learners can never be discounted.
Cautiously, the school had to adjust and adopt a rotational timetable to maximize contact time with learners. Unfortunately, the Foundation phase classes (Grade 2 &3) were dealt a heavy blow as their teachers did not come back after the heavy lockdown of 2020.
The school was granted 16 appointees through the PEEI (Presidential Education Employment Initiative whose contracts run out by the April, 30.
School safety remains a priority during these trying times and the school has to make better use of the JoJo tanks for storage as water has become a scarce commodity.
We wish all our school community a healthy and safe year ahead.
Till we meet again in the second term which resumes in May, 3 2021. All the best!
