Letters From The Principal

4 December 2017
 

Dear Parents,
2017 Academic Year came to an end. As a teaching team, we have tried our best to make learning easy and fun. However, we have experienced difficulties and shortcomings along the way. We will have number of meetings with the teaching staff, identify our weaknesses and strengths and have a strategy in place to perform better.
We are all excited regarding the construction of the new campus. The new campus will absolutely broaden our minds and have an impact on quality of learning and teaching. Using Cambridge syllabus is another factor that will improve the level of academic standard at school.

GRADUATION CEREMONY
The Graduation Ceremony will take place from 10:00 am to 1:00 pm at Caritas Secondary School Hall on Thursday, Dec 7. If you haven’t purchased your tickets yet, you can have it at the venue. Please, pay attention to the followings:
• The graduates of grade 8, 10 and 12 should be at Caritas at 9:00 am on the Graduation Ceremony day. In order to receive gowns and make their preparation, we suggest them to be at venue on time.
• Students from grade 6 to 12 will receive awards in different categories. Except the graduates, all of our students need to be in the school uniform.
• Please, bring your tickets to present at the entrance of the venue.

Due to the ceremony, there will not be any classes on Thursday. We will have series of meetings about evaluation of the year and programs with the teachers on Friday. Therefore, there will not be any classes on Friday, Dec 8, too.

REPORT CARDS
The report cards will be delivered at 8th period on Wednesday, Dec 6 along with the newsletter. The teaching will continue as usual. Please, make sure that your child attends the school regularly.
TUITION FEE
I urge you to pay the tuition fee or the enrolment fee of K 300 as early as possible to secure a place. The school will start accepting new students for the 2018 Academic Year.

UNIFORM
We have ordered new set of uniforms for Primary 1 to 8. The color and the design are different than the current one. Students from Grade 9 to 12 will be using the same uniform. You can purchase the uniform and the textbooks starting on Jan 19 from the East Boroko Campus.
NEW CAMPUS
The construction of the new campus will accelerate in December upon arrival of the materials from China. Grade 9 to 12 will start the academic year in the new campus. Prep to grade 8 will have their classes in the current campus. We have already purchased our textbooks from Australia and are waiting for the delivery. The new school materials such as active boards, touch screens and furniture will be arriving in January. Your child(ren) will have a better learning atmosphere next year.
FORMAL NIGHT
Formal Night for Grade 12 graduates will take place from 7:00 pm to 10:00 pm at Laguna Hotel on Saturday, Dec 9. You can purchase the tickets from the office which costs K120. We allow two people for each student to join the program.
I would like to take this opportunity to thank you for the support you have shown towards the school. I wish all of our students, parents and the people of PNG a “Happy Christmas and Prosperous New Year”.

Best in education,
