Happy Holidays to all, we wish you safe travels and a very happy festive season!

We look forward to seeing you all back here on the 9th of January for the new term.

Staff
We are sorry to be saying goodbye to Ms Daniela Rost at the end of January, and we are very happy to have Mr Benjamin Huber taking over. Ms Rost has done a great job here and we will miss her. Mr Huber is well known to may families already though, as he is working here part time at the moment as well as being a Saturday School teacher.

We are also sorry to say goodbye to our teaching assistant Ms Anne Barton who will also be leaving us at the end of January. She has done a great job in kindergarten. We are happy to announce that Mr Lubin Nepomuceno will be taking over. He is a fully qualified teacher and you may already know him as our English teacher in the parent programme and also running some of our clubs.

German Programme
We would like to invite our German speaking families to a meeting on the 10th of January at 8.30am to meet with Mr Huber and to hear about the German programme and how we plan to develop and improve it.
