Parent Information Letter No. 28

Date: Thursday 16th July 2009 Panaga Staff for 2009/10 An increasing school population has meant the recruitment of several new teachers and a change in role for some of our existing staff. Here is a `who's who' for next academic year. Creche Following Miss Cindy's departure and the development of morning and afternoon sessions for 2009/10, two new Creche Leaders have been appointed: Charlotte Broekman and Maricel Balde. In the first week of term, crèche will be run by Miss Hettie who will thereafter be on maternity leave for the remainder of term. To ensure continuity for the children of IP3H, Miss Janet Taylor will lead the class for this time. New School Timetable for 2009/2010 Following last week's letter relaying the new school times next academic year, please be advised that a half term holiday now features in the school calendar ­ Monday 15th to Friday 19th February 2010. Full details of the school calendar may be found on the school website ­ A reminder that the new school term begins on Monday 31st August 2009. Staff Training Days ­ Wednesday 24th to Friday 26th August In the week prior to school opening, staff will be engaged in a variety of training activities in the areas of the International Primary Curriculum and assessment, which will have positive impacts on the children's learning. Assemblies End of term assemblies will take place tomorrow at 10:00 to 10:30am on Rampayoh and 10:30 to 11:00am on Teraja..We will say farewell to all leaving students: parents of children leaving the school are welcome to attend. We will also say a sad goodbye to three members of staff: Miss Hanneke, Miss Mieke and Mr Hotze. Miss Hanneke joined the school in 2002 and has made great contributions in her EAL teaching and support of Milepost concerts. Miss Mieke and Mr Hotze joined the school in 2004 and 2005 respectively. The children have greatly benefited from their creativity and enthusiasm. All three members of staff will be missed.
