From the Headmaster
Dear students, parents and guardians,
A belated Happy New Year 2017 to all! Welcome back to our returning students and a warm welcome to our newcomers joining us for the start of the second semester on January 9.
Report cards will come out on January 13 and our advice for students is to make use of your report as a learning tool. Look for your weaker areas, and focus your attention especially on them during this semester. Do not feel defeated or downhearted if you have one or two poor grades, as this is common to many students. Instead, accept the challenge of making improvements.
This is an important semester for our Grade 11 students as they begin to make plans to attend college. Each student should schedule time to see Mrs. Diwas for individual advice on how to proceed with applications and to set a timetable for what needs to be done going forward.
It is now just a matter of weeks before our Seniors take their IB Trial or Mock exams (March 7-14). They too will need to plan carefully to meet all of their requirements and deadlines as the IB program has a number of critical internal assessments to complete. We wish them success in the busy time to come.
As always, a special thanks to our parents and guardians, who continue to support our students, staff and school in such a dedicated way.
I believe that our continued partnership will ensure the success of all of our students in 2017.
I wish everyone the very best for a successful semester!
Todd F. Wyks
