It is the responsibility of parents/guardians to make sure that all homework, written and otherwise, be completed to the best of your son’s ability every night.
When a child cannot do his homework (because of illness, family emergency etc.), that boy must have a note signed by a parent/guardian explaining the circumstances.

Parent-Teacher Communication

The best way to communicate with your son’s teacher is through the homework journal.
Parents/guardians are asked to check the journal each night for notes and homework details.
Parent-teacher meetings take place in November and school reports are posted in February and June.
Should you wish to have another meeting with your son’s teacher, it is essential to make an appointment to do so.


All boys should be sitting at their desks at 8:50am sharp.
Good timekeeping ensures that all children can start the day on a positive note in a calm atmosphere.
Persistent lateness is disruptive to everyone in your son’s class. If a boy arrives late to school he must have a note signed by a parent/guardian.
