Lunches and Homework
In the interest of health we suggest a nutritious lunch box. We ask for your co-operation in keeping junk food out of the classroom. Please give juice instead of fizzy drinks. Free milk is available each day for all children. No glass containers are to be brought into school.
The school acknowledges the value of homework because:
1. It helps the girls develop the habit of study.
2. It enables them to learn how to organise and use free time.
3. It consolidates what is being done in class.
Time spent on homework is relative to your child's age. Each child has a homework notebook and you are requested to oversee the homework and sign the journal. Your child will gradually become more independent in doing her homework. Please contact the teacher if you feel that your child is persistently experiencing difficulties.
Homework is not set at weekends.
The school calendar is issued at the beginning of the school year and may be updated at intervals during the year. We would ask that you keep this in a safe place and refer to it through the year.
Staff Meetings are usually held on the first Friday of each month. School closes at 11:45a.m. for Infants and at 12 noon for all other standards.
Exceptional Closures. If, in the case of severe weather or because of malfunction of the heating or other such reason, the school cannot be opened a notice to this effect will be displayed outside the school before children arrive in the morning. Children will not then be admitted. Once children are accepted at 8:30 a.m. they will be supervised until normal closing time.
