Your Child’s First Day at School

The school fees should be paid for the term before the first day of school. Placement of our students in their new class is carried out by our senior team, and we carefully consider each child’s strengths and abilities to match them with the best teacher for them. Before term begins you will be issued with a parent handbook and invited to familiarization events with your child. We look forward to welcoming you on your first day!
