Director’s Updates

Dear Parents and Guardians,


I would like to thank all the Early Years and Elementary parents that took the time last night to come and meet our teachers. The evening was very productive overall with many good ideas being exchanged. Ideas that we will all work on to ensure an even better learning experience for all our students. Please remember that the secondary Back to School Night will take next Wednesday beginning at 5pm (more details to follow).

In the same vein I would encourage all parents and teachers to participate in the first PTO meeting of the school year that is happening tonight. (Directions as per PTO email – The house is in Nyarutardma on KG 9, house number 64: Coming from MTN towards Woodlands, the house is on the main road on the right hand side. There is an EU Residence sign on the gate and the Quiet Haven hotel next door. There is parking for 5-7 cars inside but the rest should try to park on the side street right after the house where the Canadian residence is. ) at 7pm for a 7:30pm start.

Our search for a new EC3 teacher (3 year old children) is ongoing and we are still gathering applicants and CV’s. If you know of a teacher, qualified to teach this age group, who would be interested in beginning work here immediately could you please ask them to forward their CV to the school or feel free to send us their details directly and we will follow up.

On our school calendar we have put Monday 12th of September as a non-school day to celebrate the Eid al-Adha public holiday. Based on a list of countries that have already declared the official date this still looks like the most probable date but we cannot be 100% certain until the Rwandan Muslim Association declares. We will endeavour to keep you updated on this situation and inform everybody if we need to switch to Tuesday. If you have any more definite information on this holiday please let us know.
