A WEEK’S REST FOR YEAR 9 STUDENTS
This is to inform parents of Year 9 students in Cambridge International Programme that the secondary Checkpoint tests were brought to a successful end today.
In the run-up to the Checkpoint tests, Year 9 students were made to forego the second term holidays and instead attend classes throughout the period. With the tests currently over, Management sees the need to grant the said Year 9 students a week’s rest to help them wind down and shake off the stress they went through.
The rest period commences on 22nd April, 2016 and runs till 3rd May, 2016 at which point students will be required to return to school refreshed and ready to undertake the academic work for the third term.
Parents may note that the Cambridge Year 9 students will commence their summer break on 30th June, 2016 and resume on 30th August, 2016 for Grade 10, IGCSE academic work. During the two-month break the school will package all course books and materials for the individual student in Grade 10 and to conform to his/her chosen course of study.
Copies of detailed time table for all Cambridge grades will be made available to parents. It should be noted that an entirely different calendar of activities which conforms to the ones drawn up by international schools running Cambridge Programmes will be adopted for use throughout.
