Our library trolley has been missing for a week, if you borrowed him or see him playing somewhere (he has library label on the body) please send him home, we miss him so much. And if anyone wants to use him in the future please do let us know who you are and when you gonna return. Thanks a lot……
Just a reminder that the library will be reserved for quiet study during the Grade 12 Mock Exams (Feb. 28 until March 8). Only students wishing to read or work silently will be allowed in the library.
All other students please use the upstairs of the cafeteria during break and lunch.
Thanks for your support of our Seniors-

Dear Grade 11 and 12 Students,
This week I am prototyping Space Hopping with Grade 11 and 12 students. This is an idea to provide supported independent study in the Library during time you would usually be studying in the lounge and, for Grade 12 students between mock exams. This means that you can work independently in the Library with a member of staff available to support you. The aim is to help you be more productive and focused during school study time. Interested? The prototype will be happening at these times this week:
Monday 10.40am Tuesday 11.45am Thursday 8.10am
You can only attend if you would usually be in the lounge or taking an online course at this time. I will meet anyone interested in the lounge at the start of the block.
