From the Rector's Desk - 6th July 2020

Monday 6 July 2020

Dear Parents and Guardians,


Following from my letter of Friday 3 July, I am aware that a number of parents have expressed concerns surrounding the mechanics of the re-opening of the school on 27 July.

In the interests of clarity, I have asked Housemasters and Housemistresses to contact parents with details of their availability during the holiday (3 – 27 July). Should you require any further information on our ‘return plans’ please will you contact your Housemaster/mistress when they are available? I will be back in the office from 21 July and will be available to field calls between 07h30-09h00 from 21 – 23 July.

There has also been a need to change the half-term dates, as we have just received notice of the Grade 7 ZimSec examination dates. To accommodate these examinations please note that:

Half-term will now be a week earlier, from 11 – 21 September.

Form 1 & 2 (C & D Block) and Springvale House; Grades 3/4/5 will now return on Monday 21 September and NOT 7 September as previously advised.

Whilst on calendar, we are uncertain whether or not we will be in a position to host events such as Open Day, Speech Day, and the range of end-of-year dinners and functions. We will be publishing an online calendar next term (similar to what was done this term). Please note that a number of events have been placed in the calendar, but they will all be subject to confirmation as determined by the prevailing Covid restrictions. As you will appreciate, finalising our Michaelmas Term calendar under present conditions is not possible. We will, in the new term, be publishing a weekly calendar of events to keep you abreast of what will be happening in the school.

I do hope that the first weekend of the holidays has gone well and that this holiday will be a restful one. Please note that I will be out of the office from 7 – 20 July.

With warm regards,

Jon Trafford
