Accreditation Preparatory Visit Schedule

I am attaching the schedule for the Accreditation Preparatory Visit. If you are named on this schedule you should already be aware of your meeting times. I am aiming for minimal disruption to school life but please be accommodating if there is a need for a small change to our working week as a result of this visit.

If there are clashes or issues that I have overlooked in this schedule please get in touch.

I would love to say that this is the final version but there will almost certainly be modifications in which case I will contact you if you are affected.

Warriors! The school year 2015/16 is looking very good for another red victory. We need some House Captains to lead us to success in the House Championship this year.

Weather Instruments

The Humanities Department has mislaid a set of weather instruments that we use to teach weather and climate in Grade 8. If anyone knows of their whereabouts we would be very happy.

Thanks for looking.


If you would like to join the Provisional Steering Committee to prepare for the Preliminary Visit in October please get in touch. Ideally I would like two more teachers. If you would like more information about the commitment involved or the accreditation process I would be happy to chat with you any time.
