Dear Valued Parent,
END-OF-ACADEMIC YEAR VACATION
“We have walked that long road to freedom we have tried not to falter; we have made missteps along the way. But we have discovered the secret that after climbing a great hill, one only finds that there are many more hills to climb we have taken a moment here to rest, to steal a view of the glories vista that surrounds us, to look back on the distance we have come. But we can only rest for a moment, for with freedom comes responsibilities”.Nelson Mandela
We deem this term one of the most hectic and challenging terms in the light of the fact that we had just moved from Community 8 Campus, a place we had occupied for the past 16 years. The challenge that was associated with moving such a size of a school; managing the whole complex in one campus, maintaining order and cohesion into one school was overwhelming. We congratulate management for a good work. We wish to show our appreciation to all parents who bore with us in these trying times. We have crossed a major land mark and have come a long way. The poem above tells a bit of our story.
The future looks bright if the Lord continues to help us. Parents’ concerns for the school to organize the compound was well noted. Landscaping the compound, fixing security gates, plastering and painting the walls, furnishing some of the facilities in the new structure have all been projected to be tackled during vacation. It is just that the budget could simply not support these projects after putting up those facilities. God willing, we hope to see a complete refit of our school come next trimester.
The school breaks for summer vacation at 14:00hrs on 21st July, 2016 and will resume on 13th September, 2016 for intensive academic work.
CHILDREN’S END OF YEAR PARTY [“OUR DAY”]
There will be children’s end of year party on the day of vacation Thursday, 21st July, 2016. Children are expected to bring along enough food and drinks for themselves and their friends. They should be in their decent party dresses (no short skirt, trousers or shorts for girls) on this day.
PICKING AND DISCUSSION OF CHILDREN’S EXAMS REPORTS
As per the school calendar of activities, parents are required to pick the reports, bills and other related materials of their children on Friday 22nd July, 2016. However, students at the
Junior High department will have theirs on the 29th of July, 2016 (next Friday).
The school will hold its 16th Annual Graduation Ceremony on Saturday, 23rd July, 2016. Kindly take note of the following details:

ADMISSION VACANCIES & ENTRANCE EXAMS TO YEAR 10
We wish to inform parents that the entrance exam for our Year 10 class (Secondary) which was
announced to take place on the 30th of July, 2016 has been rescheduled to take place on the 13th of August, 2016. Parents who wish to enroll their children in our Cambridge Secondary can pick forms at the front desk or download one from the school’s website. We shall use the opportunity to run late entrance exams and interviews for the rest of the levels; that is, from Preschool to Junior High.
We are happy to announce to all parents that we have acquired a magnificent facility at Community 22, Tema for use as a Boarding House. The twin facility has a large compound and high walls and can accommodate about two hundred male and female students. Each gender will occupy a separate building with a high wall between. The boarding house will admit children from first grade to secondary. There will be a shuttle bus available to convey boarders to and from the school. Details of this boarding programme will be given to parents at the graduation ceremony.
Interested parents could enroll their children and take advantage of the boarding facilities offered.
SUMMER SCHOOL [“SUMMER SKUUL”]
Summer School will be organized for children and students of all departments. Registration for the programme begins on the 1st of August, 2016. For further information, kindly contact the various heads of department. Fees for the summer school programme will be quite moderate to enable all interested children participate.
