Headmaster’s eNewsletter – 11 September 2020


Dear Parents / Guardians

“Honour the space between no longer and not yet…”
Nancy Levin

Nancy Levin’s words ring true for me. I, like everyone, have been impatient to “get back to normal” – in every respect of one’s life. The disconnect between what can be allowed and “logically could be” and what is “not allowed” has been a source of tension and stress for all of us… and Heads of Schools have felt it acutely too.

This letter serves to highlight information for the week ahead (14 – 18 September) and to reflect on the week that has been.

I confirm the following:
1. Closure time on 18 September:
Although an earlier letter stated that we will end the term after the full academic day, we have decided to close at 12h30 for JP and SP children on Friday 18 September. It will be an academic day as every other day and I respectfully request that school attendance be honoured. The 4 hours at school means we end the term with a solid academic focus – as it should be.
